After House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was cleared of ridiculous charges regarding classified information, Nunes and his Senate ally Charles Grassley (R-IA) have issued subpoenas to then director James Comey’s number two Andrew McCabe regarding his conflicts of interest pertaining to his role in Clinton and Trump investigations, while his wife received hundreds of thousands in campaign contributions from the Clintons’ fundraiser Terry McAuliffe. The demotion of former FBI counterintelligence officer Peter Strzok (more on him below from Harley Schlanger) from Mueller’s team, reportedly for sending derogatory messages about Trump to his mistress, Andrew McCabe’s secretary, is just the tip of an iceberg. What’s emerging is a long hidden iceberg of politicized agencies and an intelligence community corrupted under President Obama to the ‘get Trump’ agenda.
We know from The New York Times, Fox News (and former AP spied upon by the Obama White House) reporter(s) James Rosen, Sinclair’s Sara A. Carter, and the Washington Examiner‘s Byron York that the ‘counterintelligence/Russian expert’ Strzok and his allies were at the center of promoting the Steele Dossier as a legitimate piece of raw intelligence. ‘Ex’ CIA officers like John Sipher and fired FBI director Jim Comey’s pals at the Democrat deep state cheerleader site Lawfarecontinue to insist no FISA warrants were obtained to spy on Trump or his campaign associates like Carter Page using the sexed up partisan document as a pretext. But from the other side of the Atlantic, Steele’s former British intelligence colleague Sir Andrew Wood, in a recent interview with Fox News, has sought to distance himself from the dossier which has now resulted in libel suits in U.S./UK courts against Buzzfeed which published it, and against the ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele who wrote it. In his interview Wood noticeably deflects responsibility for promoting the Steele Dossier to neocon Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his contacts at the FBI.
In a sign of how nervous he and his boss former CIA director John Brennan must be about their support for terrorists in Syria getting exposed, ex-deputy director Mike Morrell admitted that his support for Hillary Clinton upon leaving the Agency may have given Trump the impression that many spooks were out to get him. Gee, ya think Mike?
