    Brennan Was Feeding Obama Unverified Info From Steele Dossier, Contradicting

    2017 Testimony –

    Two former colleagues of ex-CIA Director John Brennan have contradicted his claim that the unverified “Steele Dossier” was not part of the US Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) on Russian interference in the 2016 election, reports Paul Sperry of RealClear Investigations.

    Central to the controversy is a statement by recently retired National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers, who stated in a classified letter to Congress that the anti-Trump memos which made up the dossier did factor in to the IC assessment – which was reinforced in a CNN interview by James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence who said that the assessment was based on “some of the substantive content of the dossier,” and that the IC was “able to corroborate” certain dossier allegations.

    In a March 5, 2018, letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, Adm. Rogers informed the committee that a two-page summary of the dossier — described as “the Christopher Steele information” — was “added” as an “appendix to the ICA draft,” and that consideration of that appendix was “part of the overall ICA review/approval process.”

    His skepticism of the dossier may explain why the NSA parted company with other intelligence agencies and cast doubt on one of its crucial conclusions: that Vladimir Putin personally ordered a cyberattack on Hillary Clinton’s campaign to help Donald Trump win the White House. -RealClear Investigations.

    1. Better to go to the source.

    From Real Clear Investigations:  https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2018/05/14/2_colleagues_contradict_brennan_on_use_of_dossier.html

    ZeroHedge pretty much just cribs from this article, and doesn’t really add any analysis of value.

    And the commenters on ZeroHedge are…not the sharpest marbles in the bag.

        3. ZeroHedge bugs me.

        Don’t know why, but their stuff is always strong on conjecture and weak on cited fact.

      4. That was definitely worth a read.

      It does tie a lot of pieces together that have been reported in different places for awhile, but not fully covered.

        5. yes, it's a very interlocking story

        it shows the centrality of the Steele Dossier to the whole operation, that Fusion basically kept feeding everyone false leads in order to keep the money flowing; even the Trump Tower meeting was more about ginning up more business once the unmasking showed that indeed there had been a meeting

        Strzok, collaborating with Fusion through his GF, then took the dossier–or perhaps its component reports–to get the Page warrant, bringing the FBI into a culpable level of investigation

        in spring 2017 the caper then ended–by launching a new caper in the form of the Mueller probe

        and also RCP is considered mainstream, or at least a “gateway” to it: they wouldn’t have done this legwork under a Clinton WH, or it would’ve had a far far different implication

    6. "…that Vladimir Putin personally ordered a cyberattack…"

    …”that Vladimir Putin personally ordered a cyberattack on Hillary Clinton’s campaign…”

    What fucking “cyber attack?”

    Are they talking about the e-mail leaks? How many times does this need to be debunked?
