(Tea Party PAC) – We’ve known for a long time that former CIA head John Brennan played an integral role in pushing the dossier through the federal government so that the FBI would eventually use it to spy on the Trump campaign.
He hasn’t exactly played it cool, either.
He’s been all over Twitter and cable news bashing the President and whining about Trump Russia since day one.
Now, the US Attorney appointed to investigate the origins of the Trump Russia probe has set his sights on the Obama official who couldn’t shut up.
On Monday, the news dropped that Barr had assigned John Durham to dig into the origins of the probe.
On Tuesday, the Deep State with hit with some more very bad news: the scope of Barr’s investigations are much deeper and wider than had originally been thought.
Barr and Durhama, it was reported, have been working closely with CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and FBI Director Christopher Wray on surveillance issues relating to Trump’s 2016 campaign.
This indicates a far broader inter-agency effort is underway to investigate the investigators.
According to sources at the Justice Department, John Durham has specifically targeted the role the CIA played in the Trump-Russia probe, particularly former CIA Director Brennan and his “machinations during the 2016 campaign will come into sharper focus,” says investigative reporter Paul Sperry.

Spygate has Brennan’s name written all over it. He has now turned on former FBI Director Comey as the two duke it out over who first had the idea to use the dossier in the IC report.
The notorious Steele dossier, which it has now been well-established was known by the FBI and even Comey himself to be unreliable and also that ex-British spy Christopher Steele was leaking its contents to the press, was not only used by the FBI to apply for and obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump adviser Carter Page, it was also used in the Intelligence Community report.
Comey told the FBI in an email chain in December of 2016 that Brennan insisted on including the dossier on the IC report, but the CIA now claims that it was really Comey who made this recommendation while Brennan and DNI chief Clapper objected.
In addition, Brennan may also have perjured himself in a May 2017 testimony about the dossier.
During that testimony, he vehemently denied that the dossier was in the IC assessment released January 2017 that had concluded Russia interfered with the 2016 election “to help Trump’s chances of victory.”
Brennan also said in sworn testimony to Congress that he didn’t know who commissioned the dossier, even though it was well-known by senior officials at the DOJ, FBI, and other NatSec agencies that Clinton had paid for the document.
“John Brennan did more than anyone to promulgate the dirty dossier,” an investigator told Paul Sperry last year. “He politicized and effectively weaponized what was false intelligence against Trump.”
