Recent investigations reveal that former senior intelligence officials attempted to concoct another conspiracy to blame Russia for helping Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election while knowing that “Russian collusion” was a fabrication concocted by Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
The conclusion of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation, which was made public last week, indicated that in late July 2016, the intelligence community had knowledge that Clinton intended to “vilify” Trump by associating him with Russia in order to divert attention from her problems with her private server. Only a few days after receiving it, on July 28, 2016, then-CIA Director John Brennan informed President Obama, as well as then-Vice President Joe Biden, along with others at the White House of the “significant” information.
According to Durham’s report, Brennan briefed then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on the White House meeting the following morning, on July 29, 2016. After speaking with Clapper and Comey, Brennan and other CIA officials attempted to prevent the dissemination of information about the Clinton plan.
“Director Brennan along with other officials from the agency took steps to make sure that distribution of intelligence regarding Russia’s election interference attempts, which included the Clinton Plan information, would be strictly limited to safeguard the sensitive information and to avoid leaks immediately after talking with the President, Comey, as well as Clapper to address relevant intelligence.”
“Brennan said that after his meeting with President Obama on July 28th, the inter-agency Fusion Cell—a team to evaluate and synthesize important information on Russian malign influence efforts connected to the presidential election—was set in motion. At least some CIA employees thought the Clinton Plan intelligence influenced the decision to establish the Fusion Cell, according to email traffic and witness interviews gathered by the Office.”
Despite this information, the FBI opened a probe into the Trump campaign, which later developed into a special counsel probe. Up until Oct. 2017, when then-House Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) discovered Clinton’s role in the deception, no one knew she was involved in the fabrication of the “pee dossier” that alleged conspiracy between Trump and Russia.
Brennan and Clapper, however, continued to spread the hoax up until 2019. In 2020, they assisted in the creation of a new plan to assist Biden in winning the presidential election in 2020 by saying that the New York Post’s explosive Hunter Biden laptop narrative was false material spread by the Russian government.
Brennan and Clapper had been deeply involved in creating a statement for the general public implying that the Washington Post’s story was Russian disinformation only weeks prior to the 2020 election, according to the most recent report released by the House Judiciary Select Committee regarding the Weaponization of the U.S. Government.
According to the committee’s findings, after the Post’s article appeared, former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell was approached by then-Biden campaign aide Antony Blinken. Even though there was no proof, Morell claimed in his testimony before the committee that Blinken’s call inspired him to compose a statement implying the article was false information spread by Russia.
