Former CIA Analyst Claims Brennan Cooked Books Against Trump

A Senate Intel report on Russia favoring Trump relied on info curated and controlled by Brennan.

The Senate Intelligence Committee released its second report on Russia’s 2016 election interference late last month. The Senate report contradicted the House Intelligence Committee’s 2018 findings, which concluded that the Russians’ primary aim was to sow discord and, if anything, favor Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. This latest Senate report once again presents the Democrats’ and Leftmedia’s favored narrative that the Russians favored Trump. Former CIA Director John Brennan, Barack Obama’s hatchet man, heralded the Senate’s report as validating his widely expressed claims of Russia supporting Trump — the Russian-collusion hoax he was largely responsible for creating.

In fact, Brennan goes so far as to claim that it is President Trump who is spinning a hoax. “I’m just very glad that the Senate Intelligence Committee … came out with a report that totally validated the intelligence community’s assessment about Russian interference in the election in 2016 to help Donald Trump,” Brennan crowed. “Donald Trump continues to call all these things hoaxes. They’re not. The only hoax is his representation of the facts. That’s the hoax. It’s because, I think, he has this quite understandable insecurity about what he’s done.”

Well, not all former members of the CIA see the world with the same anti-Trump blinders as Brennan. Former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz responded to the Senate Intel Committee’s report, charging that it failed to do what the House Intel Committee had done in going beyond Brennan’s filtered and controlled information.

Fleitz observes that House Intel Committee staff found 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.

Instead, the Brennan team included low-quality intelligence that failed to meet intelligence community standards to support the political claim that Russian officials wanted Trump to win, House Intelligence Committee staff revealed. They said that CIA analysts also objected to including that flawed, substandard information in the assessment.

Fleitz asserts, “So Brennan actually slanted his analysis, choosing anti-Trump intelligence and excluding anti-Clinton intelligence.” That in a nutshell describes what Obama’s deep state did to perpetrate history’s worst political hoax on the American people.
