The Continued Creation of The “Fall Guy” Bill Priestap – John Brennan Edition…

Within all of the discoveries around the DOJ/FBI “Trump Operation” we are often questioned why former CIA Director John Brennan is not a specific focus.

The reason is quite simple…

Unlike some of the other conspirators, John Brennan recognized much earlier it would be in his best interests to have an exit plan to get him away from the inherent legal ramifications of the DOJ/FBI operation. Brennan was simply smarter about covering his tracks.

Early in our research we pointed this out – May of 2017.

Keep in mind, all of the referenced positions and statements come from a position where the larger intelligence leadership needed cover when it became obvious both the pre-election and post-election strategies against Donald Trump would not succeed.

ODNI Clapper, CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey were foiled by NSA Director Mike Rogers telling president-elect Trump about the 2016 FBI/DOJ spy and surveillance operation on November 17th, 2016.

On May 23rd, 2017 former CIA Director John Brennan testified to congress on the Trump-Russia counter-intelligence operation which began in July 2016.  Within Brennan’s testimony he contradicted the testimony of FBI Director James Comey (March 20th, 2017) and created his own exit plan.  That Brennan exit-plan still holds value through today.

We have previously drawn attention to a particular part of former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to congress from March 20th, 2017. The issue is when was congressional leadership, specifically the congressional intelligence oversight group called the “Gang-of-Eight”, notified of the Trump-Russia investigation (a counter-intelligence operation).

Pay close attention. On March 20th, 2017 FBI Director James Comey -together with NSA head Admiral Mike Rogers- testified to congress specifically about this notification (first three minutes of the video):

Rep. Stefanik: [01:12] …”when did you notify the White House, the DNI or congressional leadership”?

James Comey: …”good question. Congressional leadership, sometime recently they were briefed on the nature of the investigation, as I said. Obviously the department of justice has been aware of it all along”…

Watch the first 3 minutes of that video. Notice the discomfort etc. We have previously outlined why THAT is such a big deal –SEE HERE– Comey is discussing the recent notification to congress that took place approximately a week earlier mid-March 2017 .

Prior to the March 2017 congressional notification FBI Director Comey admits keeping congress in the dark “because of the sensitivity of the matter” – from July 2016 through March 2017, eight months.

Now, watch the opening statement from former CIA Director John Brennan which followed two months later.  Pay very close attention to the segment at 13:35 of this video of Brennan’s testimony as he discusses his CIA role in 2016 [Transcript included]:

Brennan: [13:35] “Third, through the so-called Gang-of-Eight process we kept congress apprised of these issues as we identified them.”

“Again, in consultation with the White House, I PERSONALLY briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in the election to congressional leadership; specifically: Senators Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr; and to representatives Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff between 11th August and 6th September [2016], I provided the same briefing to each of the gang of eight members.”

“Given the highly sensitive nature of what was an active counter-intelligence case [that means the FBI], involving an ongoing Russian effort, to interfere in our presidential election, the full details of what we knew at the time were shared only with those members of congress; each of whom was accompanied by one senior staff member.”…

Brennan goes on to say the main substance of those Go8 meetings was the same as the main judgements of the January 2017 classified and unclassified intelligence assessments published by the CIA, FBI, DNI and NSA (intelligence community).

That January reference was the infamous 17 agencies report, from CIA (Brennan), DNI (Clapper), FBI (Comey) and NSA (Rogers).  All had confidence, except Mike Rogers, according to the report that Russia was attempting to interfere in the 2016 election. That Joint-Analysis Report was pure nonsense – SEE HERE.

I have previously stated that if you put the nonsensical 2016 Joint Analysis Report together with the ridiculous “Clinton/Steele Dossier” I guarantee you that’s the majority of any evidence the FBI presented to the FISA Court. Hopefully, we’ll soon find out.

John Brennan set-up his exit strategy within that May 23rd,2017, congressional testimony.  Notice how he says he briefed the Gang-of-Eight, and then turned his CIA information over to the FBI counterintelligence operation, that’s W.H. “Bill” Priestap.

Brennan testified that his specific intelligence product (CIA) was given to the FBI who were exclusively in charge of the “counter-intelligence investigation“.  What’s happening there is John Brennan following James Comey by throwing FBI Director of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, under the bus.

Reader Dan encapsulated it nicely in this paragraph:

[…] Brennan gave Comey/Priestap the investigative product -which had nothing to do with the Trump team- and Comey/Priestap used it to carry out Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice’s dirty work for them. Of course Brennan was in on the whole thing and is now saving his own skin by saying ” I briefed ya’ll on everything I had with regards to Russia, anything additional that arose please talk to my buddy Comey”.

Brennan is essentially making Comey and Priestap own the “Counter-Intelligence ‘Muh Russia'” claims about the Trump campaign. Brennan’s exit Makes Comey and Priestap the fall-guys for a Robert Mueller investigative outcome he knows is based on a foundation of basic nonsense.  CIA Director John Brennan knows there’s no ‘there’ there.

The entire construct of the “Trump-Russia Investigation” was the political use of a claimed investigation in order to conduct surveillance on candidate Trump; and in the aftermath of the election weaken President-Elect Trump while simultaneously providing cover for the surveillance already conducted. There simply is no ‘there’ there because there’s no substantive evidence to support a “Trump Campaign Collusion Narrative”.

In the aftermath of the election, all of the players were paying close attention to what each of their colleagues was saying.  Obviously John Brennan realized people were focusing on Comey’s March 20th admission to congress that the FBI intentionally kept congress in the dark during the construct of the Trump-Russia counter-intel narrative.

Congress was kept in the dark during this (July 2016-November 2016) operation because the surveillance relied on innuendo, rumor, gossip etc, the “Clinton/Steele Dossier”.  The unlawful operation needed the cover of a FISA Court approval; in the aftermath of the election the investigation itself morphed into a political need; the substance was non-existent and immaterial in relation to the creation of a narrative and to provide cover.

If FBI Director James Comey had notified congress following normal protocol, via the Gang of Eight oversight, the counter-intel operation, and subsequent narrative, would have been harder to manufacture as details would have to be consistent with evidence. That was the benefit to keeping any oversight away while weaponizing the FBI/DOJ.

John Brennan in May 2017, facing the looming certainty of the underlying Russian ‘collusion evidence’ being non-existent, extricated himself from the ‘Trump Operation” by reminding everyone he briefed congress on larger Russian election interference issues.

The trouble for James Comey and Bill Priestap is Brennan’s admission that he gave everything he had to the FBI.  Brennan specifically says he gave his intelligence product to the FBI counterintelligence operation, Bill Priestap.

Brennan threw the hot-potato to Comey and Priestap and created plausible deniability for his role in a constructing a political narrative; a false narrative.

Additionally, within that same congressional appearance, John Brennan refuted the story of the week surrounding President Trump trying to influence the intelligence community.

.

It’s not accidental that Brennan’s exit plan was facilitated by a member of congress John Brennan admits to briefing in 2016, ‘Gang-of-Eight’ member, Adam Schiff.

That strategic positioning by John Brennan is essentially why CTH doesn’t focus too much attention on him within the rapidly unfolding events.   The only thing that could trip-up Brennan now would be for Priestap to feel the vice-closing and turn against the upper-tier conspiracy leadership to save himself.

Maybe.

The others stuck it out and now must simply await the whirlwind and, for them, hope for the best. And, for us, hope for the worst for them: Justice.

      They’re in deep trouble. They’re all in so much trouble, just like Lois Lerner, and we all know what happened to Lois Lerner. $175K a year retirement package, and … nothing else. In spite of the known facts, that she was at the heart of the IRS abuses, of weaponizing the IRS for benefit of Obama’s election, despite the fact that felonies were committed, in the end the American people got an “I’m sorry” from the IRS, and they spent OUR money reimbursing legal expenses in a law suit (no damages, I believe, just expenses).

      The same people who were in control of Justice and the FBI are largely in control of both today. Evidence is disappearing. It’ll all go away, unless Trump appoints a effective and credible Attorney General, as in “by March 2017”. He did not do that, he did not fire Sessions, and now I fear the game is lost. The ACLJ, Judicial Watch, and Congress can do all the “discoverin'” in the world, but without a prosecutor with subpoena power investigating, an empaneled grand jury to hand down indictments against the “little fish”, all of this will lead nowhere. The statue of limitations clock keeps on ticking, the 2018 midterm elections could bail out the Democrats, the 2020 Presidential election could go sideways, and there is PLENTY of time to dispose of evidence and create new “facts” to prosecute the Trump Administration.

      If you think these guys (FBI, Obama appointees, Clinton Inc.) are on the ropes in panic and running away, you aren’t looking at things realistically. They believe they are wiinning, and they believe that they will win. For good reason: almost two years after the crimes were committed, NOT ONE FBI agent, Justice Department official, or Obama Admin appointee has been deposed under oath by a prosecutor, no one has been indicted, and they’re still running the show.

He blabbed PUBLICLY when he didn’t have to. He buried Hillary and the old bat knows it, but these people are more powerful than Hillary, so she eats it.

        The Deep State didn’t want her elected. If they did, Comey wouldn’t have publicly investigated her a second time after he already exonerated her months before even investigating her the first time. The first investigation, they had to get her nominated. After that it was use the second investigation and faked media polls suggesting she would win running away with it. The polls suppressed Hillary’s vote as many stayed home, or got ready for celebration parties, rather than bother to vote.

        Hillary’s defeat drove the crazies into the street and Antifa. Step 2 is to run Trump out of office with a blatantly rigged investigation. That would put Trump supporters in the streets. Result would be violence and martial law. The goal is martial law. If they can make the fake Russia stuff stick, Pence goes out, they can put in a RINO and maybe Obama again in a PURPLE GOVERNMENT (Red and Blue), as in Soros’ Purple Revolution.

    We have gotten here because for so long our Congress was dabbling in every social issue that they had no Constitutional bases to dabble in. Marriage, Education, Abortion, Gay rights, Welfare……the list goes on and on. All of it, States Rights. Meanwhile they delegated their Constitutional Authority, those things enumerated, to Zars, aids, and petty bueracrats. When our elected officials decided to pickup the Constitution and read it, maybe we can straighten this mess out. Not until then.

      Sorry, but knowing what I know about Woodward and Bernstein, that’s one of the nastiest putdowns I’ve ever seen. Sundance is clean; WoodStein were pure Deep State liars. What you might think you “know” about Watergate is 100-percent CIA disinformation. The Washington Post was among the top five mouthpieces for the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, and Woodward had been moved there from Naval Intelligence specifically to pump out the CIA’s hoax on the world.

      I know you weren’t knowingly branding Sundance with such an odious connection, but I urge you to find out the unvarnished facts. The only place I know of them to exist is in Ashton Gray’s seminal work, “Watergate: The Hoax.” Full disclosure: I played a relatively minor role, coming in relatively late, as a research assistant on the book. I swear I’m not biased by or about it, and if there were ~any~ other source that had anything even close to the scope of documented, verifiable information as that book, I would recommend that. But I’ve read every work ever produced on Watergate, and there simply isn’t anything anywhere that comes even close. All the other works start out with fatally flawed, spoon-fed CIA disinformation, and expend all their time and energy trying to make sense of it.

This is an assault on our government, the Constitution and our way of life. if those in control, i.e., Attorney General, FBI Head and the President himself do not unilaterally deem it advisable to bring these culprits to justice, then we must assume that the rule of law is dead, the Constitution is dead, and our President has been compromised.

  16. Sundance: Are we missing a YUGE possibility here?

    Brennan announced “… I provided the same briefing to each of the gang of eight members.”

    What does “to each” mean … coming from a spook versed in verbal deception?

    It means “to each [SEPARATELY and INDIVIDUALLY]”

    How do we KNOW it was the “same”?
    Was it taped? … Undoubtedly NOT.

    Why wouldn’t Brennan have used “Communication COMPARTMENTALIZATION”, just as White Hats may have used to identified Leakers, to OMIT WRONGDOING from Nunes that the others on the Gang of 8 already knew and allowed to continue without opposition?

    • This would explain Nunes’ shock at discovering the wrongdoing during his SCIF visit.
    • This would explain that ONLY Nunes took action to expose the wrongdoing.
    • This would explain why Nunes’ counterpart Republican, Chairman Burr of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has done NOTHING.
    • This would explain that NOT ONE of the other leaders supports this transparency.

      This is a very astute observation, and very likely correct. This is a ~known~ CIA psyop method that we have documented at Chalet Reports. Here is a brief relevant excerpt from “The CIA Psyops of Watergate and Beyond.”:

      “CLOSED DOORS AND CLANDESTINE INTERACTION

      “A PSYOPS technique heavily relied upon in Watergate to create the conflicts and fictions described generally above is alleged private, secret talks and meetings and activities between two, or a few, of the principal actors, with nothing more than their own assertions of what the subject and substance of such an interaction was. An almost inconceivable amount of what we know as Watergate is built on no more foundation, and it is no foundation at all. It often is pure fiction.”

      That’s from an appendix of the book “Watergate: The Hoax.” We have made that appendix freely available as a public service, and it comes highly recommended, because many of the exact same “methods” have been being used on Trump as were used against Nixon:

      There is concern by many, digenova, Byron York, Laura Ingraham, Jordan, DeSantis, that Wray is excessively defensive of the fbi management people (mccabe, strzok, Page, priestap). Rosenstein is also being defensive and brings up “independence” wording like Comey. Some congressmen interviewed about the memo called out for wray and Rosenstein heads to roll. The meeting with Paul Ryan behind a Nunes back was telling too.

      It’s hard to say if wray is a black or white hat. We don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes. In something big like this it could be just an honest disagreement about firing or removing without due process or following all proper procedures – especially with mueller looking to hang anyone on process violations. Mueller doesn’t want wray or Rosenstein to be replaced since they are giving the SC everything they ask for.

    Still researching for the connection between Soros and Brennan in the Baltic. I’m not any closer to finding out which Baltic Intel agency Brennan met with in 2016 when he went to the Balkans. Will keep looking. Never give up!

    I did find some odd information: Anyone know that this group is working with Soros in the Balkans? Specifically in Macedonia. It’s a Republican 504C that is working in Macedonia.

    Our old buddy John McCain. Ms. Lindsay was listed, and Tom Cotton still is.

    http://www.iri.org/who-we-are/board-of-directors

    I found this out here:

    Amongst CANVAS’s current “partners” are the Albert Einstein Institution, Freedom House, and the International Republican Institute (IRI). The IRI includes amongst its board of directors John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Brent Scowcroft. When John McCain says “We should have seen this coming,” in regards to the unrest in Egypt, he obviously isn’t talking about himself since he helped make it happen.

    https://www.sott.net/article/296717-George-Soros-NATO-and-the-Western-Color-Revolution-in-Macedonia

    In the article above Victoria Nuland gets mentioned:

    “Interestingly enough, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, has been charged by Macedonian intelligence of conspiring with Zaev of the SDSM.”
    (They don’t like Victoria Nuland in this article).

    Working with these groups is is our favorite Thug, George Soros. Who reportedly works with the CIA and USAid with his Open Society and other goon organizations.

    Some say the Russians are behind the Macedonia problem, some say the CIA and Soros. The politico article talks about how the Republican party has received complaints from Macedonia about George Soros and they are looking into the USAid allegedly paying Soros.

        grooming Trump as a political agent of influence for years (which would seem
        to suggest that they had a quite astonishing degree of political prescience)—

    There’s no way to pass any of this back to Brennan. Once Brennan made the hand-off to the FBI it became purely domestic, the FBI’s exclusive domain. Everyone knows that (wink wink). Now, if some FBI amateurs meddled around in England with some foreign sources, playing spy in what is supposed to be CIA’s sandbox, well, what did they think was going to happen?

    Where was the Russian dossier nonsense cooked up? In England? By Steele, MI6 from 86-09? Someone with old CIA connections? Maybe with Brennan, 25 years in CIA roughly the same time as Steele? Hmmmmm.

    3. Wray is a good guy supporting all of the above.
    4. Sessions is an invisible wizard choreographing all this JUSTICE.
    5. And therefore, ” Patience, Grasshopper.” All will be revealed in due time. Go back to sleep.

    Well, guess what Treepers. All of the above claims are coming undone and we are running out of time before midterm attitudes and votes are set. Despite incontrovertible evidence, we are being played and lulled to sleep.

    This has gone far beyond political bantering. We are talking about sedition and treason. Our President was undermined by a massive conspiracy as a candidate, then undermined as our President Elect, and then “framed” as President.

    And all we hear is there are lots of unexpected “White Hats” who, despite lifetimes of anti-Trump and pro-Swamp behavior, are now to be trusted and given more time and the benefits of all doubts.

    Let me remind you again, if the House is lost this year all investigations stop and impeachment hearings begin. Game over.

    Will someone on this site please explain to me why “patience” is in order any longer. We are close to losing our Republic. The only hope the swamp has is to run out the clock and “Patience, Grasshopper” is their strategy.

    While it is true that in his testimony he highlights that he informed the gang of 8, whereas Comey said he had not, Brennan says (from minute 10:25 onwards), that “when it became clear to me……, we initiated…. the investigation”… In other words, he is taking credit for initiating the counter-intelligence investigation against the alleged Russian threat.
    So in one sense he is looking for an exit from culpability, but in another sense, he takes credit for starting the process. That suggests to me that, at that stage in May 2017, they were still confident of getting away with it, otherwise why would he assume responsibility for initiating the investigation? He wanted to be hailed as a hero still.
