DNI Briefer Shelby Pierson “Overstated” (Manufactured) Intel on Russia Election Interference…

Sending shockwaves through the intelligence community, it was reported yesterday that newly appointed Acting DNI Richard “Ric” Grenell asked the intelligence community, specifically including Shelby Pierson, to produce the underlying intelligence within the briefing she gave to the House Intelligence Committee.

Well, what do you know…. All of a sudden today, anonymous intelligence officials are reporting to CNN that Ms. Pierson “overstepped” her position, was “misleading” in her briefing, and “mischaracterized” the underlying intelligence.   Imagine that.

Washington (CNN)-The US intelligence community’s top election security official appears to have overstated the intelligence community’s formal assessment of Russian interference in the 2020 election, omitting important nuance during a briefing with lawmakers earlier this month, three national security officials told CNN.

The official, Shelby Pierson, told lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election with the goal of helping President Donald Trump get reelected.

[…] “The intelligence doesn’t say that,” one senior national security official told CNN. “A more reasonable interpretation of the intelligence is not that they have a preference, it’s a step short of that.

[…] One intelligence official said that Pierson’s characterization of the intelligence was “misleading” and a national security official said Pierson failed to provide the “nuance” needed to accurately convey the US intelligence conclusions.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, where Pierson is a senior official, did not respond to CNN’s request for comment. (more)

Why would Shelby Pierson and Joseph Maguire intentionally blindside the White House?

The briefing was obviously spun by HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff and democrats on the House intel committee; and there was no intelligence presented during the briefing to support the claims made by Pierson, Democrats and media.

If it seems like CNN just stumbled into the journalism thing, don’t react too quickly.  The underlying motive for CNN to narrate truthfully on this example is simply to get Ms. Pierson fired (which she should be).  If Pierson is fired, CNN will most likely jump back on the bandwagon of President Trump helping Russia again.

…”these are sick people we’re talking about.  Really sick people.”…

    She’s obviously not only responsible for the new Trump muh Russia leaks but also the Bernie muh Russia leaks. We know the left doesn’t care about the Trump leaks but it would be entertaining to watch the left go after her for framing Bernie. Would be a hoot if the new left turned on the establishment media and the other conspirators. Help them Sundance.

    Mugzey. You display your contempt for K-6 primary teachers, who (when competent) lay the foundations for literacy, competence and confidence in thriving communities.

    I don’t blame you — you learned your ignorance from the kind of leaders who have turned over our children to hate-filled Marxist educators because hey, it doesn’t matter, any dunce can do that job, right?

    Pretty easy answer to this would be a reassignment and a short statement about it. Something like ” We thank Ms. Pierson for her years of service but at this level and so close to the 2020 election we can’t have this kind of misunderstanding. Therefor we are reassigning Ms. Pierson for further training. We expect after successful completion of training Ms. Pierson will rejoin our IC community in some capacity.

    Of course training and Duty Station can very for each individual, if you catch my drift?

    Didn’t Obama have a preference in the Israeli elections and overtly take steps to support a particular candidate over another?

    Imagine politics being apart of politics, the Dems last minute ballot harvesting, that actually changes the people’s vote, does more harm than any country taking a political stance in the best interest of its current political leaders.

    “Overstated” (Manufactured) Intel”

    Now what does that remind one of?

    Oh yes, the “Overstated” (Manufactured) Intel on WMD in Iraq which cost thousands of American troops their lives and thousands of others one or more limbs and cost America trillions of dollars.

    President Truman, who “created” the CIA, later told his biographer, Merle Miller:

    “Now, as nearly as I can make out, those fellows in the CIA don’t just report on wars and the like, they go out and make their own, and there’s nobody to keep track of what they’re up to. They spend billions of dollars on stirring up trouble so they’ll have something to report on. They’ve become … it’s become a government all of its own and all secret. They don’t have to account to anybody.”

    The DOJ is so opposed to “misleading” by General Flynn, Papadopolous, Stone, even mistress-leaker Wolfe, that this is a perfect opportunity for prosecution for misleading congress under 18 USC 1001, the DOJ’s favorite tool when they do not have sufficient evidence of a crime, but want to prosecute for political reasons.

    There is deep state admission that this fake ‘russia, russia’ report to congress was a “misleading” and unsupported misrepresentation.

    So, surely, the DOJ will be vigorously pursuing this misleading of congress with the same intense vigor with which it attacks General Flynn, George Papadopolous, and Roger Stone !!!!! The DOJ could just copy the invective it wrote about Roger Stone, and the necessity to prevent misleading congress.

    CNN has so many lies in this article: here are 2 outright lies and one grossly misleading statement in one paragraph:

    “And many of Trump’s foreign policies have benefited Russia, from his abrupt pullout of US troops from northern Syria to the discord he has sown with America’s closest European allies. And he has previously expressed a reluctance to impose severe sanctions on Russia.”

    1. Troops are STAYING in Syria to guard the oil from ISIS wannabe’s
    2. European nationalists LOVE Trump, their globalists leaders may not, and any discord is because Trump expects NATO members to pay their bills.
    3. Trump has put on much heavier sanctions that Obama — note CNN’s clever avoidance of outright lie by referencing earlier idea idea versus actions.

    It is very easy to discover who is a Russian asset colluding with Putin to meddle with US elections. If the DNC wants the subject for President- they are immune from Putin/Russia, US/International law, Main Steam media scrutiny, and AG Barr investigation.

    If the DNC does not want you for President you are automatically a Putin asset, a subject of media scrutiny/leaks, and guilt until proven innocent while stripped of all tools to prove your innocence

    And dont forget, if someone from the DNC uses a physical device to transfer info from the DNC server to Wikileaks. You rename that a “Russian Hack” and the FBI will use a media report of the “Russian Hack” as defacto evidence in court. Challenge this in court and the judge will deny your motion (see Roger Stone trial).

    In other words, you viewers are too stupid to understand what happened, so we brilliant experts here at CNN will interpret it for you. Pierson MAY HAVE overstated the extent of the U.S. intelligence… (which also implies she MAY NOT have….which we know is BS)

    No. Pierson clearly overstated the intelligence, in fact ,she made it up out of whole cloth!
