To Trump John Brennan ignored comments-Russia agreements, following Müller-report; reaction from Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume.

Citing a “senior source” the Republican Kentucky sen. Rand Paul in the account of a bomb made a Twitter post late Wednesday that anti-Trump, ex-CIA Director John Brennan “insisted that the unexamined and incorrect Steele dossier” are included in a classified intelligence community report on Russian interference in the elections in 2016-a decision that ultimately lent credibility to the dossier and can play a crucial role in stoking unfounded fears of Russia agreement for two years.

Paul called Brennan under oath to testify immediately, as the Republicans will continue the offensive on the search for the origin of the consultation narrative. Fox News was not independent of Paul ‘s checked the source, and Brennan has not responded to Fox News’ requests for comment.

Fox News is, says Paul, to take the tweet explicitly accused Brennan dossier slide in January 2017, the official intelligence community assessment (ICA) of the FBI, CIA and NSA, Russia worked to interfere in the election of 2016.

However, the dossier is not in the non-classified summary of the ICA report has been publicly released. The former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper previously not said that the dossier was, ultimately, in the ICA at all.

CNN reported on Jan. 12, 2017, based on anonymous sources, that the intelligence officials informed Trump on Jan. 6, 2017, a “synopsis” of the contents of the dossier, written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele. Among the claims in order to discredit the dossier that the Russian government had the humiliating and compromising information on Trump.

Sen Rand Paul called on Monday, President Trump to revoke a former Director of the CIA, John Brennan ‘ s security clearance.

Although the decision to short trump on the dossier and the intelligence community’s dependence on the it, then-FBI Direct James Comey would later testify, was allegedly Trumping potential blackmail risks, the inexplicable and almost immediate phasing out of the meeting legitimized the dossier importance and triggered a cascade of unfounded media-driven theories about what compromising is allegedly the information of the Russian government to the President.


For example, in a Vanity Fair article claims: “the fact that The nation’s top intelligence officials chose to present a summary of the dossier both President Obama and President-elect Trump, as CNN reports, which he did last week, shows that you may have had a relatively high degree of confidence that at least some of the claims were credible, or at least worth investigating further.”

Shortly thereafter, CNN report, BuzzFeed News published the dossier. Steele whose anti-Trump views are today, it is well-known, was hired to work for the Fusion of GPS — a company, from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

“BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unexamined and incorrect Steele dossier to be included in the intelligence report,” Paul wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “Brennan should be asked, under oath, to testify in Congress as quickly as possible.”

Information from the author of the discredited dossier, it was also to ensure in October 2016 for the support of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to watch trump aide Carter page.

Only nine days before the FBI requested, to monitor the warrant page, bureau officials, a fight with a senior justice Department officials, had “continuing concerns” about the “possible bias” of a Central source, the application, according to internal text messages in the last week with Fox News. (Sources tell Fox News that the DOJ has stonewalled congressional investigators do not publish, and those who SMS-messages last year.)

Fox News is told that the texts were application with the ultimately successful page-based in part on information from Steele. In his warrant application, the FBI secured incorrectly, the FISA court of justice on numerous occasions, that other sources confirmed, independently, Steele claimed, but not clearly said that Steele worked for a company hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Former CIA official John Brennan should not be taken seriously

Former CIA officer John Kiriakou, the former CIA director’s remarks about Trump before the release of the Mueller report.

Other newly obtained text messages between former Acting FBI Director, Andrew McCabe and bureau lawyer Lisa page revealed a high-level meeting between senior intelligence officials weeks was held in front of President Trump – dedication – during a critical period for the Russia probe.


In Dec. 12, 2016, the text of Fox News, wrote McCabe: “Btw, [Director of National Intelligence James] clapper, told Pete that he is meeting with [CIA Director John] Brennan and Cohen for dinner tonight. Only by characterized [for your situational awareness].”

Brennan was one of the loudest and most violent voices of the trumpet of the Russian understandings of the theory in the last two years, falsely claiming only a few weeks ago, that Special Counsel Robert Müller, probably, was planning to indict members of the Trump-administration the family in a scene reminiscent of the “ides of March” and the assassination of Julius Caesar.

Paul had to call the White house supported the decision to resist, Brennan’s security clearance last year. Trump administration officials said Brennan was not, implies, incorrectly, that he strengthen insider information to his hair-raising accusations. In the same interview in which he know told MSNBC that an “ides of March” redux could soon occur, MSNBC host Lawrence O ‘ noticed Donnell himself at one point, “you have the Insider.” Brennan tries to dismiss that proposal.

According to the report, Mueller found no evidence that the Trump-Russia agreement after an extensive probe lasting almost two years, Brennan a wretched mea bot culpa.

“I don’t know if I received the wrong information, but I think that I suspected it was more than it actually was,” Brennan told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”


He added: “I’m not relieved that it was determined that it was a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government about our choice.”

Brennan said he was “not surprised that the high bar of criminal conspiracy was not met” — although, according to attorney General William Barr, Miller in fact found no evidence for such a conspiracy at all.
