Rand Paul Claims John Brennan Backed The Unsubstantiated Steele Dossier
The Steele Dossier proved that unsubstantiated evidence needs to be vetted. It was handled improperly and led to this mess where Dems happily believe the president was in leagues with the Russians.
It turns out that former CIA Director John Brennan, according to a source of Rand Paul’s, pushed the unverified dossier.
“Citing a “high-level source,” Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul charged in a bombshell Twitter post late Wednesday that anti-Trump ex-CIA Director John Brennan “insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier” be included in a classified intelligence community report on Russian interference in the 2016 elections — a decision that ultimately lent credibility to the dossier and may have played a key role in fomenting unfounded fears of Russia collusion for two years.
Paul called on Brennan to testify under oath immediately, as Republicans continue to aggressively seek out the origins of the collusion narrative. Fox News had not independently verified Paul’s source, and Brennan has not replied to Fox News’ requests for comment.
CNN reported on Jan. 12, 2017, based on anonymous sources, that intelligence officials had briefed Trump with a “synopsis” of the contents of a dossier written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele on Jan. 6, 2017. Among the claims in the discredited dossier were that the Russian government had humiliating and compromising information concerning Trump.
Paul’s tweet specifically accused Brennan of pushing to incorporate the dossier into a broader January 2017 official intelligence community assessment (ICA) from the FBI, CIA, and NSA that Russia worked to interfere in the 2016 election, not the Jan. 6 report to Trump.
However, the dossier is not referenced in the unclassified summary of the ICA report that has been publicly released. Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper previously testified that the dossier was not used in the ICA at all.”
It seems as time goes by that Trump was truly alone on Capitol Hill. Luckily for us, he has persevered and continued to do his job despite being against such great odds.
