Posted on 02/12/2018 11:41:48 AM PST by mojito
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes next plans to investigate the role former CIA Director John Brennan and other Obama intelligence officials played in promoting the salacious and unverified Steele dossier on Donald Trump -- including whether Brennan perjured himself in public testimony about it.
In his May 2017 testimony before the intelligence panel, Brennan emphatically denied the dossier factored into the intelligence communitys publicly released conclusion last year that Russia meddled in the 2016 election "to help Trumps chances of victory.
Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document (excerpt here), even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
The aide, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said Nunes will focus on Brennan as well as President Obamas first CIA director, Leon Panetta, along with the former presidents intelligence czar, James Clapper, and national security adviser, Susan Rice, and security adviser-turned U.N. ambassador Samantha Power, among other intelligence officials.
John Brennan did more than anyone to promulgate the dirty dossier, the investigator said. He politicized and effectively weaponized what was false intelligence against Trump.
Several Capitol Hill sources say Brennan, a fiercely loyal Obama appointee, talked up the dossier to Democratic leaders, as well as the press, during the campaign. They say he also fed allegations about Trump-Russia contacts directly to the FBI, while pressuring the bureau to conduct an investigation of several Trump campaign figures starting in the summer of 2016.

Maybe CIA is “Phase 3”, after Nunes’ “Phase 2” investigation of the State Department.
I believe he did say that there would be five.
The Obama Admin broke so many Laws Sessions doesn’t know which way to turn ,LOL
The Kenyanesian Usurpation was an affront to the Constitution.
The problem is, other than Trump, they are all complicit.
They are afraid of pulling too hard on any string of crimes as the whole thing might unravel and expose their own culpability.
If there are five “phases” to Nunes’ investigation, I suspect that the final phase ends up in the White House.
To calm his nerves he should just repeat Sessions Sessions Sessions.
HOORAY Devin Nunes
Sessions is busy at an Anti-Rock & Roll jungle Music meeting.
Go Nunes Go
Dan Bongino talked about this on Fox and Friends today:
Sessions is busy collecting underpants.
Sessions is putting together a Beatles Album burning party this afternoon.
Sessions getting lots of criticism ..... not commenting on whether he deserves it personally or not, but I was unaware that there were so many vacancies in the DOJ. This would cripple anybody in Sessions’ position.
From Powerline http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/02/the-gap-at-doj.php :
With Brands departure, here is what the top echelon of the Department of Justice looks like:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein
Associate Attorney General vacant
Solicitor General Noel Francisco
Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division vacant, nomination pending
Assistant Attorney General, Civil Rights Division vacant, nomination pending
Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division vacant, nomination pending
Assistant Attorney General, National Security Division vacant, nomination pending
Assistant Attorney General, Environmental Division vacant, nomination pending
Assistant Attorney General, Tax Division vacant
As a result of all these vacancies, Obama holdovers still exercise significant control over the Department. Indeed, Christian Adams argues that they still run the show.
Either muslims swear to oaths of allegiance to the United States by taqiyya, or they don’t know the quran and are thus apostates to it, which by the quran, would warrant their death.
Brennan, Comey, H. Clinton idiot, etc., etc.
Im sure they all knew about it from the start. Gotta take down the house of cards in the proper sequence. I used to think Sessions was asleep but I dont believe this is the case. Be patient; PDJT is only a year in!
If this is like the phases for Underpants Gnomes, the missing phase is easy to establish:
Almost all of those jobs will go to career DOJ personnel. Look up the background of those who previously held those now-vacant jobs.
Every vacant job always has someone who is in the “Acting” capacity with full authority, and who also gets the extra pay.
Most career bureaucrats are essentially interchangeable within their specialties.
Brennan is one of the biggest slimeballs around.
