Rand Paul: “it was Brennan who insisted the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report”…

U.S. Senator Rand Paul posts a text today that has caught attention. The issue surrounds the Clinton/Steele Dossier and the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) from January 2017.

(Tweet Link)

While the public statement from Rand Paul is new, the backstory is one we have discussed before.  Yes, John Brennan put the Steele Dossier into the ICA, and he enlisted FBI Agent Peter Strzok as the author to facilitate the narrative.

In May 2018 there was some major reporting from Paul Sperry that included interesting details about how President Obama’s intelligence community structured their Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) about Russian interference in the 2016 election – SEE HERE

In essence by following-up with various people involved in the construct of the ICA, journalist Paul Sperry outlined how CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, subverted their own intelligence guidelines in assembling the intelligence report.

While much of the background paralleled our prior research, there are two very interesting aspects outlined by those with direct knowledge of the construct. First, Brennan positioned FBI Agent Peter Strzok as the contact between the CIA analysis and the information flow to FBI Director James Comey:

[…] A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok.

“Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source. (link)

The structure of the information flow is interesting because it highlights the obvious intention of the group to control the content of intelligence.  There are several instances which highlight the level of a strategic effort undertaken to keep James Comey out of the loop on details within the 2016 operation(s).

Their collaborative approach creates the “I don’t know” and “that was not my understanding” defense as deployed heavily by James Comey during his book tour and media interviews.  The plausible deniability approach also created an unusual set of contradictions.

Former FBI Director James Comey repeatedly said the work on the Clinton and Trump investigations was kept inside a very “tight group” of DOJ and FBI people; yet Comey repeatedly claims to have no knowledge of their activity when questioned about specific events.

Deputy Director Andrew McCabe keeping Director Comey in the dark on the Huma Abedin laptop issues for four weeks (Sept. 28th through October 26th, 2016) is a clear example of Comey’s ‘willful blindness‘.

There are also numerous examples in the Page/Strzok text messaging or working around Comey within the FBI small group (Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok and Michael Kortan), as Andrew McCarthy finally realized when he sat down to read the content during Memorial Day 2018: “I am bleary-eyed from a weekend of reading about half of them. Even in their heavily redacted form, they are a goldmine of insight” he wrote.

A second interesting aspect revealed in Paul Sperry’s prior reporting is something we discussed at great length surrounding the President Obama daily briefing material (PDB):

[…] “Brennan put some of the dossier material into the PDB [presidential daily briefing] for Obama and described it as coming from a ‘credible source,’ which is how they viewed Steele,” said the source familiar with the House investigation. “But they never corroborated his sources.” (read more)

So with another confirmation that Brennan was putting FBI Counterintelligence Investigation findings into President Obama’s PDB, let’s revisit the statements in April 2017 from President Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice. As relayed in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrew Mitchell:

Susan Rice @00:51 – …”Let me explain how this works. I was a National Security Adviser, my job is to protect the American people and the security of our country. That’s the same as the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense and CIA Director.; and every morning, to enable us to do that, we receive – from the intelligence community – a compilation of intelligence reports that the IC, the intelligence community, has selected for us –on a daily basis– to give us the best information as to what’s going on around the world.”

[Note, Susan Rice is describing the PDB]

“I received those reports, as did other officials, and there were occasions when I would receive a report in which, uh, a ‘U.S Person’ was referred to. Name, uh, not provided, just ‘U.S. Person’.

And sometimes in that context, in order to understand the importance in the report – and assess it’s significance, it was necessary to find out or request, who that U.S. official was.”

The interview goes much further. There was a lot of news in that interview. There is also a tremendous amount of double-speak and self-contradiction; in some cases between sentences that follow each other.

Notice how Susan Rice contradicts herself about what the intelligence community puts into the PDB. Remember, Rice considers the PDB intel community to be very specific: James Clapper (DNI), John Brennan (CIA) and Defense Department (which would be the Pentagon and NSA Mike Rogers). And she states they would never send the President innocuous things unworthy of review.

However, right there Susan Rice is confirming the “unmasking” request(s) which can be pinned upon her, are directly related to her need to understand -on behalf of President Obama- intelligence for the President’s Daily Briefing (the PDB). This was a previous question now answered.

This is EXPLOSIVE, and here’s why.

First, before becoming Obama’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice was U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.  Remember, shortly after the unmasking issue surfaced over 600 unmasking requests were outlined as coming from Rice’s replacement, Samantha Power.

Ambassador Power told congress in 2018 she did not do those unmasking requests; however, they were done ‘under her name’.  In other words: someone used her office access to the State Department system to unmask names.

Question:  Did Susan Rice do the unmasking via her knowledge of how to access the State Department portal?  It looks very suspicious.

Secondly, the President’s Daily Brief under President Obama went to almost everyone at top levels in his administration. Regarding the Obama PDB:

[…] But while through most of its history the document has been marked “For the President’s Eyes Only,” the PDB has never gone to the president alone. The most restricted dissemination was in the early 1970s, when the book went only to President Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, who was dual-hatted as national security adviser and secretary of state.

In other administrations, the circle of readers has also included the vice president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, along with additional White House staffers.

By 2013, Obama’s PDB was making its way to more than 30 recipients, including the president’s top strategic communications aide and speechwriter, and deputy secretaries of national security departments. (link)

Pay attention to that last part. According to the Washington Post outline Obama’s PDB’s were going to: “Deputy Secretaries of national security departments”, and his speechwriter, Ben Rhodes.

Susan Rice defined the Obama national security departments to include: “State” – “Defense” (Pentagon includes NSA) and “CIA”….

So under Obama’s watch Deputy Asst. Secretaries of Defense, via their connection to their immediate supervisor, likely had some daily access to the content within the PDB. And who was an Obama Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense?

“I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.”

Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.

So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more. We have very good intelligence on Russia; so then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were also trying to help get information to the Hill. … That’s why you had the leaking”.

Funny how that happens…

Hindsight is 20/20, but many people were tracking close to the bulls-eye back in 2016 and early 2017 when this sordid affair initially became visible.  The War Economy is one of those researchers along with CTH who was tracking in real time what was happening:

On December 9, 2016, President Obama ordered a review to be carried out by American intelligence agencies to research Russian interference in United States elections going back to 2008. The same day, Adam Entous, Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller — with assistance from Julie Tate — published the article “Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House” in The Washington Post, while David E. Sanger and Scott Shane published “Russian Hackers Acted to Aid Trump in Election, U.S. Says” in The New York Times.

As part of the development of the Intelligence Community Assessment, Director Brennan hand-picked a number of agents from both the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, one of whom was Special Agent Peter Strzok, whom worked as an intermediary between Director Comey and Director Brennan.

The next day, on December 10, 2016, Nakashima and Entous — again with Tate’s assistance — published the article “FBI and CIA give differing accounts to lawmakers on Russia’s motives in 2016 hacks” in The Washington Post. A reporter, meanwhile, sent an inquiry to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, where they asked whether they agreed with the conclusion that Russia assisted President-elect Trump with his election victorr, which was responded to by Special Agent Strzok.

Three days later, on December 13, 2016, Eric Lipton, Sanger and Shane, with contributions from Kitty Bennett, published the article “The Perfect Weapon: How Russian Cyberpower Invaded the U.S.” in The New York Times. On the same day, Mark Hosenball and Jonathan Lindsay published the article “Exclusive: Top U.S. spy agency has not embraced CIA assessment on Russia hacking — sources” in Reuters, which was about the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

This resulted in Director Clapper, Director Brennan, Director Comey and Director Vincent Stewart all collectively declining to brief the House Intelligence Committee on the issues surrounding their conflicting assessments on the Russian cyber attacks. At the same time, Strzok and Page’s texts allegedly stopped being stored internally, as the initial batch of texts messages end on December 13.

Two days later, on December 15, Strzok and Page texted each other about a sister organisation leaking to the mainstream media. The next day, December 16, Strzok texted Page again, this time to discuss an article in The Washington Post: “FBI in agreement with CIA that Russia aimed to help Trump win White House”, where Strzok argued that the Central Intelligence Agency is more capable of manipulating the press and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had the initial position, not the Central Intelligence Agency.

Two days later again, on December 18, 2016, Strzok and Page discussed his intelligence submissions to the Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference.

Strzok expressed concern that the White House would scapegoat the Federal Bureau of Investigation using the classified portion of the report. One day later, on December 19, Page texted Strzok about the number of mainstream media stories where they actively played a personal role in, as Strzok questioned whether he should have done anything differently to prevent the rise of Donald Trump. (source)

Yes, Senator Rand Paul, John Brennan most certainly put the Steele Dossier into the intelligence community assessment.  The trail is transparent; it does not take a “high level source” to prove it.

          “If it wasn’t long, then why not. Sundance got it…Rand didn’t know because he didn’t want to know until it was safe to know, which was after the Mueller Report exonerating the President.”

          What is going on with the CT people here?

          I am going to respond as respectfully yet bluntly as possible.

          Be honest everyone. We only have plausible and highly probable THEORIES of what has happened based upon the information that Sundance painstakingly researched. Said differently, much of what has been postulated here – and frankly everywhere else – has not yet been litigated beyond competing public narratives; advocates of these competing narratives could and did point to evidence that supported their arguments, whether they be pro or con. (For example, other informed and credible analysts on this issue include Dan Bongino, who published ‘Spygate’, and investigative reporter Sarah Carter.) But everything has just changed with the conclusion of the Mueller investigation. The reason, in my humble opinion, is because President Trump – and by extension his allies – can now act without any appearance of obstruction or political interference. President Trump long ago made the calculation to allow the Mueller investigation to go to its completion to allow himself freedom to act once the inevitable happened, and I now fully expect this President to do just that. Rand Paul may very well be acting similarly. I don’t know because I can only judge people’s ACTIONS and not their INTENT.

          In the end, you ARE entitled to feel – and vote – however you feel. However, an uninformed opinion or comment doesn’t have to be accepted let alone be respected, and in my opinion it just makes you sound as reactionary as the insular NPC drones on places like Yahoo that we all rail against. I expect more from the people here.

              @Marygrace Powers: ^^^^^This!

              In the end it is my belief that Steele did not write any part of this chit document but leant his name to make it appear to be legit. Besides he never worked for MI6 but rather MI^.

              Meanwhile two separate DOJ planes/jets arrived at the UK this week – one on Tuesday and the other one on Wednesday. Would we be so lucky to pick up Steele at a minimum?
              Who else would we need?

              In my personal opinion Brennan is a mole as well as the Ohr’s. These three plus Strzok appear to be individuals that have a very murky and anti-American history.

              As a matter of fact did anyone in the Hussein white was in favor of America?

              Lisa Page, Peter Strzok and Valerie Jarrett – Iranian born
              Hussein – the plant by the CIA an Indonesian citizen and his mother a CIA spy
              Chalupa – Ukrainian born

              Lastly: The military woman who defected to Iran and actively working as a spy shure looks a lot like Lisa Page when you put the pics next to each other. I could not find a pic of her sister and what she looks like. Strange….!

            Thank you for your comment. I want the facts, just the facts from everyone. Feelings mean nothing in a debate and do not enlighten people or increase their knowledge.

            As wih this: The Democrats, and now the President, are throwing out the treason charge; the only crime covered in the Constitution.
            Article 3 – The Judicial Branch; Section 3 – Treason
            Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
            So who is an enemy?
            Article 1 – The Legislative Branch; Section 8 – Powers of Congress
            To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;
            Declaring war defines an enemy.
            We have laws about sedition, which is broader, but treason, IMO, requires a constitutionally defined enemy. And Russia is not an enemy, but an adversary since no declaration of war against Russia has been issued by Congress. And leaking secret or confidential information to the public is not treason ether; illegal, or maybe seditious, but not treasonous.

    “So under Obama’s watch Deputy Asst. Secretaries of Defense, via their connection to their immediate supervisor, likely had some daily access to the content within the PDB. And who was an Obama Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense?”

    Deputy Assistant Secretaries are several levels below Deputy Secretaries, despite the similar names (there is only one Deputy Secretary but may be dozens of Deputy Assistant Secretaries—who work for Assistant Secretaries, by the way, not the Deputy Secretary.) So this particular interpretation is unlikely.

      In this instance, Sundance was making a point that Evelyn Farkas, whatever her title, apparently had access to/saw intelligence on candidate Trump. If she got it thru the PDB, then so did a lot more administration people at her rank or maybe even over. What should REALLY concern you is that she left her position in the DOD in late September 2015. That’s right, 2015, NOT 2016. That means the investigation/surveillance of candidate Trump & his campaign started much earlier than July 31, 2016. Otherwise, how would Farkas know much of anything about the amount of intelligence on candidate Trump if it didn’t until sometime in 2016.

      She then went on to become a foreign policy adviser to Hitlery. What she knew about Pres. Trump from her job at DOD, she took with her to the Hitlery campaign.

    Someone above mentioned Brennan being chosen as a sacrficial lamb & unfortunately – I mean that – that may be his fate. The ultimate knife in the back is something I don’t WISH UPON anyone nor do I delight in seeing them take it.

    But Brennan does fit the profile of a higher-up candidate for sacrificial lamb. I know Tucker had a former CIA Officer – & I think whistleblower? – on the other day & asked him “Brennan doesn’t strike me as incredibly bright, what’s your take knowing him?” To whcih the answer was “In over his head from day one”

    Diana West widely quotes Brennan’s masters’ thesis in The Red Thread: he wrote about a brief, experimental period of socialism in Egypt. I didn’t get the impression that at that age Brennan had a terribly nuanced mind. Unlike the juvenalia of Comey, there’s hardly any indication he had a subtle grasp of political theory or concepts he was working w/, let alone the “facts on the ground” he was trying to apply them to. He just comes across as “Stalin W/ A Human Face” w/o the Stalinist paranoia & self-awareness ofc

    So if we understand Bureaucrats don’t operate on their own. (They don’t) They do the bidding of whomever controls their prestige/money the rest makes sense.

    It would be mistaken to believe Brennan did anything on his own volition. He was “green lit”. The guy hates the Constitution and voted for Gus Hall for President. But he’s still a lap dog. He was a pencil pushing activist who would readily jump in.

    The POW hating Songbird of course would be involved. Just like how he worked with the 0 administration and Lois Lerner to tube the Tea Party. (See David Kramer). He was always going to be involved.

    Powers another pawn. Not going to do anything without a go ahead from a decision maker.

    Rice “green lighting” Brennan and more then likely having a sycophant abusing Powers name makes lots of sense. Rice is the key. She doesn’t come off as very smart and this was a mess.

    0 would be insulated, and I honestly don’t think he’s clever enough for any of this garbage. Besides reading a teleprompter well like a local news person he was unremarkable and not leader-like in mannerisms or thought. He is ultimately responsible though.

    Some people need to go to jail for this. They tried to overthrow an election and really the reaction from most of the GOP is truly shameful.

      I disagree, Piggy. Susan Rice comes off to me as highly intelligent, very cunning, perhaps not the best at convincing lies, but great at double-speak. Perfect for the o administration’s Dirty Deeds.

      Brennan likely would not do this on his own. He would need tacit approval from someone in the WH. My guess is Jarrett gave the green light.

      We have emails saying the WH wanted to know everything. Everything. Obama and his inner WH circle will have a hard time claiming innocence. Page has been very honest about her dealings and didn’t take too kindly to McCabe trying to throw her under the bus.

        “Obama and his inner WH circle will have a hard time claiming innocence.” Concur, except… I think this whole thing was structured to give el Commandante plausible deniability. Brennan doesn’t seem smart enough to have concocted this himself but rating high on the lapdog scale, he would certainly have taken orders from Shadow President Jarrett to set this thing up.

      His op didn’t work, did it? We’re sitting here discussing it.

      If it had been someone else’s op, someone whose name you have never heard, and they had painted a target on Brennan as the patsy right from the beginning, much like Brennan set up Comey, and structured it so that Brennan even thought it WAS his op. that his thoughts were his original thoughts, now that would have been artful.

Brennan saw the cards early on if Trump was acquitted which is why he was completely bonkers on Twitter casting aspersions on Trump. The Mueller report cleared Trump only a couple days ago.

    Looks like Brennan is going to be sacrificed. Paul says a high ranking source told him it was Brennan. So that’s really good news and what we’ve been waiting for. Some of the good people who have been scared are going to come forward. Hopefully in droves.

    I also hope more bad people start to turn on each other, in public. That would be equally good and bring out more who want the truth to be known. It would be incredible if we got to the truth of who stole the DNC e-mails. SR? Oh no, don’t say the name, just don’t. Cause we all have a deep and strong conviction it was him. We gotta know and don’t hide it, Lindsay!!! He’s trying to protect many people I’m afraid.

    Not sure if I am repeating other posts, but this is important because Senator Paul is bringing Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian election interference into question. There are many reasons to do so.

    1) The fact that only 3 agencies participated and not the full 17 is a big deal. This makes it basically an unofficial report. “National Intelligence Council” must endorse for this to be “peer reviewed” and an official work-product of IC.

    2) Brennan added dossier after the fact and this caused Adm. Mike Rogers to not endorse

    3) Peter Strzok was major contributor and this is reason to believe bias. In fact all the analysis were hand picked according to Clapper testimony. So this was a group project of 3 agencies’ analyst but not independent work by each agency.

    By calling into question Brennan’s ICA on Russian interference, Rand Paul is suggesting not only is there no collusion but there was no Russian “meddling” This is the document that will prove this

    Rand Paul to Introduce Amendment to Mueller Report Resolution That Demands Release of Obama’s Communications Concerning Decision to Investigate Trump Campaign
    by Cassandra Fairbanks March 28, 2019

    Senator Rand Paul is introducing an amendment to the House-passed resolution on releasing the Mueller Report that demands more information on the origins of the Obama Administration’s decisions concerning the investigation of Donald Trump and his campaign, particularly the use of the “unverified and patently false” Steele dossier.
    The amendment also demands public release of all of President Barack Obama’s communications concerning the decision to investigate the Trump Campaign and public release of all communications or reports concerning the decision not to indict Hillary Clinton or the Clinton Foundation.

    According to a press release from the Kentucky senator’s office, the amendment calls for the public release of all information and communications involving James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Susan Rice, Barack Obama, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Loretta Lynch, Bruce Ohr, or anyone else in the Obama Administration concerning the Steele dossier or investigating Donald Trump and his campaign.
