Intelligence Analysts Warned, in Emails, to "Cut It Out" With Their Persistent Warnings About the ISIS Threat and to "Toe the Line;" Probe Into Manipulation of Intelligence Expands


Impeachable.

The former Pentagon official said there were "multiple assessments" from military intelligence and the CIA regarding the "rapid rise" of ISIS in Iraq and North Africa in the year leading up to the group’s territory grab in 2014...

The IG probe started earlier this year amid complaints that information was changed to make ISIS look more degraded than it really was.

...

Fox News is told by a source close to the CENTCOM analysts that the pressure on them included at least two emails saying they needed to "cut it out" and "toe the line."

Separately, a former Pentagon official told Fox News there apparently was an attempt to destroy the communications. The Pentagon official said the email warnings were "not well received" by the analysts.
