E. Patriot’s POV – On Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) tweeted that Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan was the source who attached the Steele dossier to the ICA (Intelligence Community Assessment) that was given to former President Obama.
Evidence points to the probability that CIA Director John Brennan enlisted the help of U.S. and foreign intelligence assets to run operations against the Trump campaign early in 2016.
It would seem that Brennan’s objective was to manufacture the appearance that Donald Trump was compromised and then inject into the Gang of Eight and Obama’s White House..
Once Brennan established the possibility that Donald Trump was compromised that would open the door for FBI investigation.
With evidence now pointing to Brennan as the person who ordered up the dossier, Sen. Paul wants to know what role President might’ve played.
To that end, Sen. Paul offered an amendment to modify the House resolution to release the full Mueller Report.
The amendment, if approved, would call on Attorney General William Barr to reveal what role former President Barack Obama played in the investigation of the Trump campaign and the use of the debunked Steele dossier.
The amendment would call for Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to testify before Congress under oath.
In addition, Paul’s amendment calls for the public release of all documents relating to the communications of several Obama administration officials, including the former president himself, former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Susan Rice, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok, former FBI attorney Lisa Page, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and former senior DOJ official Bruce Ohr.
In introducing his amendment, Senator Paul rose to address his colleagues:
“In addition to the Mueller report, we also need to know, was there malfeasance? Was there a misuse of government power? Did President Obama’s administration get involved in the election to actually try and manipulate and infiltrate the Trump campaign to entrap them or try to spread information that was incorrect. We need to know that.”
“We need to know why they decided that the fake Russian dossier was real. The country had concluded it wasn’t. No media outlet would produce the Russian dossier because it was so unverifiable and yet the FBI head, the CIA head kept sending the dossier out to people having it come back to them again and say ‘oh my goodness look what this senator gave us.’ It was what they already had!”
“What we need to discover, and we do not yet know, was President Obama involved? Was this done for partisan purposes? Was this done to try to elect Hillary Clinton?”
So exactly who did Brennan consult with at the White House – National Security Advisor Susan Rice? Director of National Intelligence James Clapper? Former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power? Or, Barack Obama, likely.
