READ: The 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment of "Russian Activities + Intentions in Recent US Elections" is now the subject of investigative referral to Intel Community Inspector General by @dni_ratcliffe Referral first sent to CIA IG in 2018 but no meaningful action taken.
GET FOCUSED ICA KEY JUDGMENTS + LEVELS OF CONFIDENCE: While CIA, NSA, FBI found with HIGH CONFIDENCE Putin ordered 2016 influence campaign to "undermine faith in US democratic process" + "denigrate Secretary Clinton” + "harm her electability" + developed a “clear preference" for
candidate Trump, NOT ALL AGENCIES on same page. "We also assess Putin + the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump's election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton + publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him. All three agencies agree with
this judgment. CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has MODERATE confidence." NOTE: Senior intelligence official familiar with investigative referral tells @CBSNews "there are a number of things in the referral that the ICIG will likely be interested in,
particularly Obama-Biden era political appointees overruling career intelligence officials who raised concerns about some things being included in the ICA."

SCOOP #Durham: @CBSNews obtains 94-page declassified FBI spreadsheet, widely cited by IG Horowitz, but not public until now. Recently released to Senate investigators, the FBI spreadsheet was part of a broader effort to corroborate the Steele dossier claims.
While lightly redacted, the bureau spreadsheet shows the FBI relied heavily on media reporting to back up claims about Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and others.  IG Horowitz faulted the FBI over lack of corroboration + evidence of circular reporting.
IG Horowitz page 5 found dossier author Christopher Steele spoke to the Yahoo news reporter prior to publication of a September 23 article. The FBI spreadsheet cites the SAME article on page 51 as supporting evidence.  IG Horowitz also faulted the FBI for using the Yahoo

#Durham This morning, @LindseyGrahamSC went further on recent Comey testimony about Sept 2016 CIA investigative referral to FBI over alleged 3rd party discussion of HRC approved plan “concerning candidate Trump + Russian hackers.” Graham told @MariaBartiromo, “Comey said that
didn’t ring a bell. But when you look at the source documents, it went directly to him. So if we can prove, he actually knew about this request
and did nothing, then he could be charged with perjury. He said he didn’t know anything about all the problems with the dossier. That
the subsource was a (suspected) Russian agent. If we can find somebody, no that’s not true. I briefed him. He’s in trouble. If the Clinton Foundation used money to pay for this smear campaign, they’re in trouble. Anybody who hides evidence from the court, that alters evidence,

On pages 3 + 5 Agent Barnett said FBI team considered closing Flynn probe November 2016 (which moves up timeline) + called case “exercise in futility” + believed he was “cut out” of Jan 2017 Flynn WH conducted by @petestrzok where Flynn had no lawyer + WH counsel not advised
Page 6 + 7 Agent Barnett said “RAZOR Investigation was problematic” + he “wished to be removed” because it could end up with IG + FBI lawyer Clinesmith who recently pleaded guilty to altering CIA email about @carterwpage also handled Flynn data collection requests

#Whistleblower Statement from @MarkSZaidEsq attorney for DHS Former Acting Undersecretary for Intelligence Brian Murphy “The selective disclosure of heavily redacted documents by DHS neither contradicts what is contained in Mr. Murphy's whistleblower complaint, nor even supports
the character assassination attempt by the Department. Our role, however, is not to publicly speak for Mr. Murphy regarding official DHS positions but to facilitate his ability to provide complete and truthful information to the relevant oversight authorities. Mr. Murphy has
identified documentation that goes to the heart of this issue, as well as that supporting his whistleblower complaint, and is more than willing to disclose the information to Congress and Inspectors General, and we have asked DHS to facilitate

#Whistleblower NOW Response from Chairman Schiff @HouseIntel to the @DHSgov letter + internal emails first obtained @CBSNews The chairman is now making the DHS letter public, saying “The Department of Homeland Security’s refusal to cooperate fully with the Committee’s legitimate
investigation—despite repeated pledges of cooperation, including by the new acting head of the Department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis—is unacceptable and only reinforces our concern that the Department and its leadership are trying to conceal additional misconduct,
and further politicize the intelligence which protects the American people and our elections” + “The Department is trying to have it both ways by making only a select few witnesses available to answer a very narrow set of questions and selectively releasing a small amount of
