Walls Are Closing In: Brennan and Anonymous Official Named "Brohn Jennan" Accuse Comey of Insisting on Putting Fake Steele Dossier in Official Intelligence Assessment; Comey Had Previously Accused Brennan of Trying to Sneak It In

Let me guess: Someone wanted it included in the ICA (intelligence community assessment) so that would give it official imprimatur and then it could be leaked.

And when it was rejected from the ICA, someone got creative and said, "Hey, let's pretend to brief Trump on this so it will have the official imprimatur of a real-deal Holyfield White House briefing, and then we can leak it."

As James Comey said: CNN told him they weren't publishing the dossier because they needed a quote unquote "news hook."

So who was it that schemed hardest on this dirty op?

Folks, this could be funnnn.

A dispute is emerging between former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan over who pushed to include information from the Steele dossier in an intelligence community assessment of Russian meddling.

Comey sent an email to FBI staff in December 2016 indicating that Brennan wanted to include dossier information, Fox News reported.

A former CIA official is disputing that claim, telling Fox News that it was Comey who wanted to cite the unverified Steele information.


A potential rift is emerging between James Comey and John Brennan over who pushed to include information from the unverified Steele dossier in an intelligence community assessment of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Comey, a former FBI director, sent an email to subordinates in late 2016 indicating Brennan, a former CIA director, wanted to include materials from the dossier in the intelligence community assessment, known as the ICA, Fox News reported.


A former CIA official speaking on Brennan's behalf is disputing the assertion. The former official told Fox that Brennan and James Clapper, a former director of national intelligence, opposed Comey's push to include Steele dossier information in the ICA.

...

Comey referred to the dossier in the email as "the crown material," according to Fox's source. Comey confirmed in a Dec. 17, 2018 closed-door congressional interview that FBI analysts used to the term as a reference to Steele's report.

That could just be a reference to Steele being British. Or it could be Comey's suggestion that this dossier was the Crown Jewels of intelligence. Or it could be meant to mean both.

You guys have to read the whole thing. The conspirators are being forced to accuse each other. Chuck Ross' article also recounts how the conspirators cooked up the fakey-fake "briefing" (which could then be leaked).

...

The former CIA official who spoke to Fox News...

Who is almost certainly Brennan hiding behind a cloak of anonymity.

Please continue.

...said it was Comey who wanted to rely on the Steele dossier. The anonymous former official said that Brennan and Clapper opposed Comey's suggestion because Steele’s report "was in no way" used to develop the intelligence community assessment.

"The intelligence analysts didn't include it when they were doing their work because it wasn’t corroborated intelligence, therefore it wasn’t used and it wasn’t included. Brennan and Clapper prevented it from being added into the official assessment. James Comey then decided on his own to brief Trump about the document," the former official said.

Rand Paul has previously stated that his sources say it was Brennan pushing for this.

But I don't care whose scalp they get. We're gonna get a scalp from one of these coupsters.

Guys... GUYYYYYSSS...

I'm getting happy!
