Remember when the story broke that Trump had colluded with the Russians and that a dossier had been found document activities by Trump in Moscow frequently referred to as the "golden showers dossier." Well, when questioned before Congress later Brennan said that report had never been verified and that it had not been used as part of the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) of Trump's Russian collusion activities. Now we find out that not only did the document, prepared by British agent Christopher Steele and based upon false information, make its way into the report but it was used in briefings by Brennan to then President Obama. Also remember that it has been proved that Steele was paid through by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee via a legal firm at their request. So, Brennan has some explaining to do and he very well could face serious charges himself, charges that would be felonies, punishable by jail time.
This same ICA was used as a basis for issuance of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against members of the Trump campaign for surveillance and data gathering, something that would never have been authorized if federal agents had told the judge the truth about the basis in the assessment. Brennan knew the document was faulty as did James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, James Comey of the FBI and the "top dogs" at the Department of Justice. Not only that, but the decision to use the document was made by the FBI, the DOJ and the DNI and a select group of others. What's really notable about that is that the National Security Agency (NSA), headed by Admiral Mike Rogers, did not concur with its use, saying it was clearly flawed.
Interesting, don't you think? And now we are finally coming to the point where the truth is starting to trickle out and the holdovers at the DOJ and FBI and now, both Comey and Clapper, are becoming unglued along with Brennan. I guess the possibility of actually serving hard time for crimes against the nation don't look like very much fun, do they?
Now nothing is ever certain in politics and Washington but let's hope that the scab comes off the wound and it gets thoroughly cleaned and heals. American deserves much better than this.
