In the most recent bombshell regarding the politicized, fraudulent basis for the entire Trump “Russia Collusion” hoax, Department of Justice investigators have uncovered damning evidence that former CIA Director John Brennan personally intervened in editing the intelligence report conclusion on Russian interference in the 2016 election. This according to a report by Paul Sperry in RealClearInvestigations (RCI).

Brennan did so over objections from career CIA intelligence analysts who disputed Brennan’s take that Russian leader Vladimir Putin helped Donald Trump in the election.

RCI noted that Brennan “personally edited a crucial section of the intelligence report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and assigned a political ally to take a lead role in writing it…” It added:

The explosive conclusion Brennan inserted into the report was used to help justify continuing the Trump-Russia “collusion” investigation, which had been launched by the FBI in 2016. It was picked up after the election by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who in the end found no proof that Trump or his campaign conspired with Moscow.

The Obama administration publicly released a declassified version of the report — known as the “Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent Elections (ICA)” — just two weeks before Trump took office, casting a cloud of suspicion over his presidency. Democrats and national media have cited the report to suggest Russia influenced the 2016 outcome and warn that Putin is likely meddling again to reelect Trump.

RealClear Investigations also revealed that:

…one of the CIA operatives who helped Brennan draft the ICA, Andrea Kendall-Taylor, financially supported Hillary Clinton during the campaign and is a close colleague of Eric Ciaramella, identified last year by RCI as the Democratic national security “whistleblower” whose complaint led to Trump’s impeachment, ending in Senate acquittal in January.

The two officials said Brennan, who openly supported Clinton during the campaign, excluded conflicting evidence about Putin’s motives from the report, despite objections from some intelligence analysts who argued Putin counted on Clinton winning the election and viewed Trump as a “wild card.”

The CIA analysts who opposed Brennan’s take, actually found, according to RCI, “that Moscow preferred Clinton because it judged she would work with its leaders, whereas it worried Trump would be too unpredictable. As secretary of state, Clinton tried to ‘reset’ relations with Moscow to move them to a more positive and cooperative stage, while Trump campaigned on expanding the U.S. military, which Moscow perceived as a threat.”

With his personal intervention, Brennan, outrageously, essentially ‘flipped the script’ from the intelligence showing Putin favoring Hillary Clinton, to it showing Putin favoring Trump.

Much of this vital information was in a lengthy report following the review conducted by the House Intelligence Committee. Soon after Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff took control of the committee in January 2019, however, the report was classified and locked in a Capitol basement safe.

RCI reports that US. Attorney John Durham, who is leading the DOJ probe, is “using the long-hidden report, which runs 50-plus pages, as a road map in his investigation of whether the Obama administration politicized intelligence while targeting the Trump campaign and presidential transition in an unprecedented investigation involving wiretapping and other secret surveillance.”
