According to a former national security official that worked for the Trump administration, former CIA Director John Brennan purposely buried intelligence evidence showing Russian President Vladimir Putin actually wanted “the more predictable and malleable” Hillary Clinton to be elected in 2016.
Check out what American Greatness reported:
In an oped at Fox News, former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz strongly disputes the Senate Intelligence Committee’s findings in its latest report on the Russia matter. The bipartisan report, released on Tuesday, found that the intelligence community officials who prepared the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment of Russian interference in 2016 “were under no political pressure” to reach “specific conclusions.”
John Brennan himself told Politico Wednesday that the Senate report vindicated the intelligence community’s (IC) assessment.
Republican Representative Devin Nunes however found evidence showing that the Brennan was using intelligence for political purposes.
“The House committee found the intelligence community assessment violated protocols for drafting such assessments,” Fleitz reported, stating that the Senate committee ignored these “extraordinary violations of intelligence community rules.”
Check out what else Fleitz reported:
The Senate Intelligence Committee report falsely claims that “all analytical lines are supported with all-source intelligence” and that analysts who wrote the intelligence community assessment consistently said they “were under no politically motivated pressure to reach specific conclusions.”
House Intelligence Committee staff members found the opposite. They told me there was conflicting intelligence evidence on Russian motivations for meddling in the 2016 election.
More gravely, they said that CIA Director Brennan suppressed facts or analysis that showed why it was not in Russia’s interests to support Trump and why Putin stood to benefit from Hillary Clinton’s election. They also told me that Brennan suppressed that intelligence over the objections of CIA analysts.
House Intelligence Committee staff told me that after an exhaustive investigation reviewing intelligence and interviewing intelligence officers, they found that Brennan suppressed high-quality intelligence suggesting that Putin actually wanted the more predictable and malleable Clinton to win the 2016 election.
House Intelligence Committee staff said to Fleitz that the Brennan team “included low-quality intelligence that failed to meet intelligence community standards” to support their political claim that Russian officials preferred Trump over Clinton and some CIA analysts objected to the “flawed, substandard information in the assessment.”
