Dispute opens between Comey and Brennan over who pushed the Steele dossier to the FISA court

May 15, 2019

  Now that William Barr has officially opened an investigation into the alleged FISA warrant abuses by the FBI and has appointed a special prosecutor to oversee it some people are getting a little nervous and are beginning to turn on each other in order to protect themselves.

  According to this story a rift is beginning to open up between James Comey and John Brennan over who was responsible for pushing the discredited Steele dossier. Here is more:

A high-level dispute over which senior government officials pushed the unverified Steele dossier amid efforts to surveil the Trump campaign has broken out into the open again, after it emerged that Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if the FBI and DOJ’s actions were “lawful and appropriate.”

Sources familiar with the records told Fox News that a late-2016 email chain indicated then-FBI Director James Comey told bureau subordinates that then-CIA Director John Brennan insisted the dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference, known as the ICA.

But in a statement to Fox News, a former CIA official put the blame squarely on Comey.

“Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, are the ones who opposed James Comey’s recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report,” the official said.

  It looks like this is about to get very interesting and the investigation really has not gotten underway yet. It looks like after all their conniving their roosters might finally be coming home to roost.

      And the funny part is they have painted themselves into a corner. The Democrats would be best off if they stopped talking about this, but they have too much invested in it and it will upset their rabid base if they let it go so they are going to continue to keep it alive as the noose tightens around their own necks.
