Obama Admin Knew Clinton Created Russia Hoax
Former CIA Director Brennan's handwritten notes present damning new evidence.
National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe on Tuesday released newly declassified yet heavily redacted information that included handwritten notes from Barack Obama’s CIA director and collusion co-conspirator, John Brennan. Brennan’s notes reference a summer 2016 White House meeting that included Obama and three officials identified as “Denis,” “Susan,” and “JC.” That’s likely former White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and either former DNI James Clapper or former FBI Director James Comey.
The most significant unredacted portions of Brennan’s notes clearly indicate that Obama and his advisers were informed that intercepts of Russian intelligence showed they had uncovered a plot by Hillary Clinton’s campaign to smear then-candidate Donald Trump as colluding with Russia on election interference.
“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [Redacted]…” Brennan writes. “Cite alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on — 26, July — of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to villify [sic] Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services.”
These notes prove that Ratcliffe was not engaged in promulgating Russian disinformation as Democrats disingenuously asserted following his letter sent to Congress last week. That Brennan believed the information was significant enough to alert Obama verifies Ratcliffe’s assertion that this was not Russian disinformation.
Tellingly, just days after this meeting on July 31, 2016, the FBI opened Crossfire Hurricane, its investigation into the Trump/Russia collusion hoax. As Mark Alexander has observed, Obama’s fingerprints are all over this scandal.
The new evidence fills in some of the details of what Trump called “the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax.” Obama and members of his administration — which included Joe Biden, of course — engaged in a deep-state attempt to prevent Trump’s election, which transitioned into a coup attempt after his surprising victory. Not only were they aware that Clinton was actually the source of the disinformation campaign vilifying Trump as a Russian stooge, they worked to further the false narrative by siccing the FBI onto his campaign with the dubious Crossfire Hurricane investigation, which was based on Clinton’s phony “Trump dossier,” information for which was largely supplied by a Russian asset.
This information makes Clinton’s false allegation during the October 9, 2016, presidential debate all the more insidious: “We have never in the history of our country been in a situation where an adversary, a foreign power is working so hard to influence the outcome of the election and believe me, they’re not doing it to get me elected. They’re doing it to try to influence the election for Donald Trump.”
What was actually happening? The outgoing Obama administration was colluding with Clinton’s campaign to use the threat of a foreign power meddling in the election to influence the outcome of the election in Clinton’s favor.
Following this latest bombshell, Trump promised to declassify any and all documents pertaining to the Russia hoax and to Clinton’s email scandal. What exactly that means remains to be seen, but it should help to further expose the greatest scandal in American election history and how much of a role Obama had in it.
Unfortunately, as Mark Alexander notes, “Establishing that both Clinton and Obama were complicit in this disgraceful coup attempt, and by extension, then VP Joe Biden, may be too little too late, to ensure control of the White House and Congress after the election – to keep it out of the hands of the enemies of Liberty.”
Update: Brennan responded to the declassification threat, saying, “Just the way Donald Trump has abused the responsibilities and authorities of the office of the presidency, John Ratcliffe has followed in his footsteps and has totally abused those responsibilities and authorities of the Office of Director of National Intelligence.” He added, “He has very selectively declassified and released information to try to promote the interests of Donald Trump.”
Which wouldn’t at all be like selectively using foreign intelligence to promote the interests of Hillary Clinton.
