An investigation by London’s leftwing Guardian final week by chance proved that Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan was behind a marketing campaign of political espionage, organized with Hillary Clinton’s marketing campaign, designed to defeat Donald Trump.
One aspect did collude with overseas powers to tip the election — Hillary’s.
Seeking to retain his place as CIA director underneath Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a pc server related to Trump Tower. This gave cowl to Susan Rice, amongst different Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his folks.
It was the dirtiest political marketing campaign in residing reminiscence, and all of it started with Brennan.
American Spectator experiences: John Brennan’s CIA operated like a department workplace of the Hillary marketing campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press within the hopes of inflicting most political harm on Trump. An official within the intelligence neighborhood tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even trouble to cover their activism, adorning workplaces with “Hillary for president cups” and different marketing campaign paraphernalia.
A supporter of the American Communist Party on the top of the Cold War, Brennan introduced into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to assemble and leak political espionage on Trump. He bastardized requirements in order that these left-wing activists may burrow in and take profession positions. Under the patina of that phony professionalism, they may then current their politicized judgments as “non-partisan.”
The Guardian story is written in a mode designed to flatter its sources (they’re solid as high-minded whistleblowers), however the upshot of it’s devastating for them, nonetheless, and explains why all of the legal leaks in opposition to Trump first originated within the British press. According to the story, Brennan acquired his anti-Trump suggestions primarily from British spies but in addition Estonian spies and others. The story confirms that the seed of the espionage into Trump was planted by Estonia. The BBC’s Paul Wood reported final yr that the intelligence company of an unnamed Baltic State had tipped Brennan off in April 2016 to a dialog purporting to point out that the Kremlin was funneling money into the Trump marketing campaign.
Any different CIA director would have disregarded such a flaky tip, recognizing that Estonia was desperate to see Trump lose (its officers had purchased into Hillary’s propaganda that Trump was going to tug out of NATO and go away Baltic international locations uncovered to Putin). But Brennan opportunistically seized on it, as he later that summer season seized on the half-baked intelligence of British spy companies (additionally stuffed with officers who needed to see Trump lose).
The Guardian says that British spy head Robert Hannigan “passed material in summer 2016 to the CIA chief, John Brennan.” To be sure that these flaky suggestions leaked out, Brennan disseminated them on Capitol Hill. In August and September of 2016, he gave briefings to the “Gang of Eight” about them, which then turned up on the entrance web page of the New York Times.
All of this occurred on the very second Brennan was auditioning for Hillary. He desperately needed to maintain his job and despised Trump for his alleged “Muslim ban,” a matter close to and expensive to Brennan’s coronary heart. Not solely was he an apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood, however Brennan’s Islamophilia dated to his days in faculty, when he spent a yr in Cairo studying Arabic and taking programs in Middle Eastern research. He later acquired a graduate diploma with an emphasis in Middle Eastern research. In 1996, his ties to the Islamic world tightened after he turned the CIA’s station chief in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He as soon as recalled that “during a 25-year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East — as a political officer with the State Department and as a CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques of Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that privilege — that pilgrimage.”
Out of this Islamophilia got here a particular dislike of Michael Flynn, who had deliberate to tear up the Obama-era “reset” with Muslim international locations. Furious with Flynn for his apostasy from political correctness, Brennan and different Obama aides couldn’t resist the temptation to take him out after rifling by transcripts of his calls with the Russian ambassador. They caught him in a misinform Mike Pence and made positive the press knew about it.
Were the media not so fully within the tank for Obama and Hillary, all of this political mischief would make for a compelling 2016 model of All the President’s Men. Instead, the general public will get a gradual stream of Orwellian propaganda concerning the sudden propriety of political espionage. The headline writers at Pravda couldn’t enhance on this week’s official lie, tweeted out by the Maggie Habermans: “Susan Rice Did Nothing Wrong, Say Both Dem and Republican House Aides.”
Liberals pompously quote the saying — “the bigger the lie, the more it will be believed” — whilst their media enshrine it. Historians will look again on 2016 and marvel on the audacity of its huge lie: whispers of an imaginary Trump-Russia collusion that wafted up from the fever swamps of an actual collusion between John Brennan and overseas powers searching for Trump’s defeat.
