While observers have long pointed out that former @CIA Director @JohnBrennan appears to have played a key role in the #Spygate scandal, actions taken by #Brennan and the #CIA now appear to have become a central focus of investigators. (Thread 👇)…
Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC said IG #Horowitz was “doing a very in-depth dive about the FISA warrant application” & “the behavior regarding the counterintelligence operation.”

Graham noted the IG report has been delayed because “every time you turn around, you find something new.”
#Brennan appears to have played a key role in establishing the #FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign—including making repeated use of questionable foreign intelligence.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper personally confirmed foreign intelligence involvement during congressional testimony in May 2017:
#Brennan testified to Congress that any info, specifically “anything involving the individuals involved in the Trump campaign was shared with the bureau [FBI].”

@JohnBrennan also admitted that it was his intelligence that helped establish #FBI investigation:
John Solomon @jsolomonReports of @thehill, who has extensively covered the #Spygate scandal, said he was hearing that “John Durham and Bill Barr are focused on the part before the FBI officially got started on July 31, 2016.”
Solomon also discussed the role of Joseph #Mifsud, the individual who told Trump campaign aide @GeorgePapa19 in March 2016 that #Russia had #HillaryClinton emails.

Mifsud “had long worked with Western intelligence” and “he was asked to connect George Papadopoulos to Russia…”
Rep. @DevinNunes, who has seen the electronic communication that was used to officially open the @FBI’s counterintelligence investigation, publicly stated that, “We now know that there was no official intelligence that was used to start this investigation.”
Contrast Nunes’s statement with what #Brennan testified to before Congress on May 23, 2017:

Brennan has claimed that he didn’t see the dossier until “later in that year. I think it was in December [2016].”

@JohnBrennan also stated in his testimony that the @CIA didn’t rely on
…the #SteeleDossier and that it “was not in any way used as a basis for the intelligence community assessment that was done.”

But this claim was countered during the testimony of former FBI lawyer Page. (Read:…)
As previously noted, while @JohnBrennan denied using the #SteeleDossier in the ICA, he did attach a 2-page summary of the dossier to the intelligence community assessment that he, along with #Clapper and #Comey, delivered to President #Obama on Jan. 6, 2017.
#Comey then met with President-elect Trump to inform him of the #SteeleDossier.

Shortly after @Comey’s meeting with Trump, both the meeting and the existence of the dossier were leaked to @CNN by #JamesClapper.
The House Intelligence Committee report on #Russian election interference confirmed that #Clapper personally leaked confirmation of the #SteeleDossier, along with Comey’s meeting with Trump, to CNN:
Immediately following the @CNN story, @BuzzFeedNews published the #SteeleDossier, and the Trump–Russia conspiracy was pushed into the mainstream.
