Why Brennan Started The Russia Investigation

Former CIA director John Brennan testified before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that he was not sure if there was any evidence of collusion between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Yet Democrats are thrilled by his testimony, because he said there were contacts between Russian officials and some “U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign,” and hence an FBI investigation was warranted.

Note that there is nothing new in what Brennan said. The New York Times reported on January 19 — in a story timed to appear on Inauguration Day — that the intelligence services had “intercepted communications” between several Trump “associates” and Russian officials. (The same story said there was “no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing.”) And last week, Reuters reported that there were 18 such contacts — over seven months, less than three per month.

All that Brennan presented was his opinion. And it is not clear what prompted his opinion. He said he convened a group, including the FBI and NSA, to investigate possible Russian attempts to affect the election in late July 2016.

    Perhaps Brennan got involved because he is an executive troll for the Deep State. Perhaps, he. like hundreds of other pawns, is compromised by evidence of sexual perversions and therefore to keep things quiet, does whatever the deep state tells him to do……

      Brennan is probably bisexual, as Hillary reportedly is, and is probably involved In the sex ring with the Clintons.

    Brennan is a kiss up to the democratic party and all the bullshit they stand for!

  • Richard G. Lugo

    Brennan who is a muslim was appointed by the muslim liar in chief and did what he was told to do, try and put Trump into the Russian story.

    • GoldenRudy

      Wondering why that facet about Brennan is not widely known, reported? If he was a devout Jew claiming someone in high office was anti-Isreal would that not be reported? Ya, I think it would. So why not that he is a muslim convert?

      • Richard G. Lugo

        Because of the muslim liar in chiefs PC bullshit nobody would bring it up.

  • Sharpshooter

    Just another rabble rousing POS like McCain. They’re both senile and should be put in an “old folks” home before they hurt themselves!

    It is very clear that the spies are entirely opposed to Trump and that they think with a single brain-as though they get together before communicating with Congress and get their stories coordinated. They all say the same thing, every time. Did Trump or his people collude with the Russians? Answer, no evidence of that having happened. Is there any reason to keep the investigation going? Answer, there is no direct evidence but there are potential avenues that need to be pursued to guarantee such actions didn’t happen. See the plan. No evidence, but we’re not stopping until Trump’s term expires. As long as we’re investigating, his agenda is dead. We will finish in 2020, unless he’s elected again-they more work will have to be done. I say fire every damned one of them and replace them all. They sure as hell aren’t doing anything to keep the country safe.

    Brennan has a history with Obama. He’s not to be trusted. “Not sure” he says. Did anything he saw in his purview show collusion? That’s a Yes or No. Ask him why he briefed Trump on that phony dossier the FBI hired that ex- MI6 agent to write. Ans: It was the only way he could give it credibility for the press to publish.

    I doubt that Brennan knows much of anything. All he seems to be is a toady of the libtards and Obama. The only one in the so-called intelligence community less intelligent than him is Clapper. For not knowing anything Brennan sure likes to point his finger and make unsubstantiated accusations.
