Deep State ‘Anxiety’ Hits Hard As The Investigation Into The Investigators Heats Up – First Up, Former CIA Director John Brennan In The Crosshairs
By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
U.S. Attorney John Durham who has been tasked with investigating the origins of the Russia probe, being overseen by Attorney General William Barr, is making a number of intelligence community members so nervous that they have “leaked” information the New York Times about how the Justice Department plans to question senior CIA officials, with a focus “on the intelligence agencies’ most explosive conclusion about the 2016 election: that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia intervened to benefit Donald J. Trump.” (Archive.is link here)
Key paragraphs from the NYT piece:
The interview plans are the latest sign the Justice Department will take a critical look at the C.I.A.’s work on Russia’s election interference. Investigators want to talk with at least one senior counterintelligence official and a senior C.I.A. analyst, the people said. Both officials were involved in the agency’s work on understanding the Russian campaign to sabotage the election in 2016.
While the Justice Department review is not a criminal inquiry, it has provoked anxiety in the ranks of the C.I.A., according to former officials. Senior agency officials have questioned why the C.I.A.’s analytical work should be subjected to a federal prosecutor’s scrutiny. Attorney General William P. Barr, who is overseeing the review, assigned the United States attorney in Connecticut, John H. Durham, to conduct it.
Bold emphasis mine.

QUICK FLASHBACK – DNI ‘ANALYSIS’ CREATED BY CIA, FBI AND NSA
The reason for highlighting those specific paragraphs is because they tell us where the “anxiety” is coming from. The original DNI report “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections,” offered the conclusions of just three intelligence agencies, the CIA, under former CIA Director John Brennan, the FBI, under former FBI Director James Comey, and the NSA, which was the only agency used in the report that only had a “moderate” amount of confidence that Russian interference was meant to benefit President Trump. The other two agencies claimed they had “high confidence” as to Russia’s intentions.
In other words, the very people being investigated right now, Brennan, Comey, and the former Director of National Intelligence, who compiled the report and offered the “assessment,” James Clapper, were the only agencies claiming the Russia’s purpose was to help Trump win the presidency.
Also note the wording by NYT, “according to former officials.”
I would wager that the person or persons that spoon-fed this leak to the NYT was one of the aforementioned former Obama officials, because they know that Barr and Durham, starting at the CIA, means their focus is at the upper levels of the intelligence agencies under Obama, specifically the ones determined to create the “Russia collusion” hoax, which began with that DNI report.
They are running scared and attempting to get out in front of the DOJ’s investigation and projecting their own “anxiety” onto current members of the intelligence community.
DEEP STATE GOING DOWN GLOBALLY?
Sean Hannity does a great job laying out this new report from the NYT, along with the background, but note at the start of his monologue he tells people to keep an eye on “Italy, Great Britain and Australia.”
After the video we will detail some new information about that area of this investigation that is uncovering how the Obama administration used foreign intelligence services to obtain information on American citizens, specifically Trump campaign officials and associates, that is illegal for American intelligence agencies obtain.
Italy: Last month Giuseppe Conte, the prime minister of Italy, forced the resignations of six top members of their intelligence community. This was referenced by one of the targets of the Mueller investigation, which stemmed from the Steele Dossier and the internal “insurance policy,” referenced by former FBI agent Peter Strzok in text messages with his alleged mistress former FBI counsel Lisa Page, which turned out to be the Russia collusion probe.
George Papadopoulos took to Twitter to highlight the news that was largely ignored by the American liberal press: On May 16, Papadopoulos said “The Italian prime minister has suddenly requested resignations from 6 deputy directors of Italian intelligence agencies: DIS, AISI and AISE. This was all after I outed Mifsud in Rome and the president called the Italian prime minister. Italy has flipped and are giving up Brennan.”
Others took to Twitter to share the news out of Italy, with Giulio Occhionero, sharing the news article from La Repubblica, stating “PM @GiuseppeConteIT has suddenly requested resignations from 6 deputy directors of Italian intelligence agencies: DIS, AISI and AISE. Partito Democratico replies: “it’s a regime”, but in Rome, everybody knows its’ all about SpyGate and Trump sabotage.”
The UK: In late May John Solomon over at The Hill reported that after Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, former British national security adviser Sir Mark Lyall Grant sent a memo to the incoming administration, specifically Trump’s former U.S. national security adviser Mike Flynn’s team, “addressing his country’s participation in the counterintelligence probe into the now-debunked Trump-Russia election collusion.”
Here are the key portions:
The investigators interviewed a second former National Security Council staffer who claimed to have read the memo in Flynn’s office. That person, who requested anonymity because he isn’t authorized to talk to the press, told me in an interview that the document contained an explanation from Grant that British authorities assisted the early U.S. investigation into Trump-Russia collusion and later concluded Steele’s intelligence was unreliable.
“The message was clear: the Brits were saying they may have done some stuff to assist the investigation that they now regretted after learning the whole thing was based on information from Steele,” the former U.S. official told me. “They wanted Trump’s team to know they did not think Steele’s information was credible or reliable.
“They also wanted Trump to know whatever they had done, they did only at the Americans’ request and didn’t want it to get in the way of cooperating with the U.S.”
Read the entire piece over at The Hill.
Australia: It is unclear if Australia intelligence agencies are cooperating in the investigation into the origins of the Russia collusion hoax, but we do know they played a key role in helping to kick off the entire Russia investigation.
Flashback: It was originally claimed that Alexander Downer, who was Australia’s ambassador to London, “provided the account of a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a London bar in 2016 that became the official reason the FBI opened the Russia counterintelligence probe.”
The Barr/Durham investigation is making the Deep State very nervous, because what is becoming apparent is that it was not just a conspiracy on the part of former heads of the former FBI director Comey, Former CIA Director Brennan and Director of the National Intelligence agency James Clapper to frame a president-elect, and then the President of the United States, for Russian collusion, but that these intelligence agencies dragged in members of intelligence agencies from multiple other countries in an attempt to overthrow a duly elected President.
They all believed that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election and that their actions to frame President Trump, their “insurance policy,” being the Russia collusion investigation, would never be exposed under a Clinton administration, but Trump won instead.
They got their Russia investigation, which did not establish that any Trump campaign member, nor any U.S. person, conspired and coordinated with Russia……. and now they are freaking out because everything they did is being investigated and it appears that Barr/Durham are not starting from the bottom, but rather going right after the top level former intelligence officials.
All eyes should be on just how nervous John Brennan is because some believe he was the mastermind behind the Russian collusion hoax, and if the temper tantrum he is throwing on Twitter is anything to go by, he is very, very nervous. His latest attack on President Trump came on June 12, stating “This is just the latest example of what Vice President Biden meant when he said that Mr. Trump is an existential threat to our country. “Unfit to be President” is a gross understatement. @realDonaldTrump is undeserving of any public office, and all Americans should be outraged.”
Think he feels the crosshairs on him?
Here is an exit question: If Brennan, Comey and/or Clapper committed criminal activity, does that totally negate the credibility of the January 2017 “Intelligence Assessment” generated by the DNI, citing the FBI and CIA assessments?
