Comey vs. Brennan and Clapper, and Steele Dossier Consciously Described as ‘Crown Material’
May 15, 2019 (EIRNS)—With John Durham’s appointment by Attorney General William Barr, important revelations about DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s probe of the Justice Department’s Russiagate investigation, and the simultaneous leak that Barr has secured the agreement of DNI Coats and CIA Director Gina Haspel to fully investigate the origins of Russiagate, a circular firing squad has emerged among various implicated Obama Administration intelligence chiefs. For now, the action concerns former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan.
Former Rep. Trey Gowdy has been all over the press for the last few days saying that an investigation should start with an email chain between Comey and Brennan concerning whether the Steele dossier should be included verbatim in the Intelligence Community Agencies (ICA) assessment published by the Obama Administration of Jan. 6, 2017 and asserting that Russian state cyber activities were conducted in 2016 with the intention of throwing the election to Donald Trump. According to Fox News, the email chain refers to the Steele dossier as “Crown Material.” Comey says that Brennan was responsible for pushing for inclusion. In their statement to Fox News through a former CIA official, Brennan and Clapper assert that it was Comey alone who pushed this and it was Comey alone who decided to brief Trump about it.
According to Gowdy, classified documents he has reviewed show that Comey “has the better argument.” Not to be discounted as this feud emerges is Congressman Jim Jordan’s announcement that he met with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and Horowitz is making criminal referrals with respect to his investigation of the Russiagate FISA warrants and the Steele dossier.
The issue? Well, imagine, if the crazy Steele report had been backed publicly by the entire U.S. intelligence community as Donald Trump prepared for inauguration. The President, the Steele report says, is a Russian agent. Put that into context of the Women’s March, the Clinton/Obama attempt to alter the result through the Electoral College, and everything else we know about the real attempted putsch by the British Empire and the Obama White House.
As it was, Comey briefing Trump on the fake dossier, the Crown Material, was a J. Edgar Hoover blackmail attempt which provided the so-called news hook for BuzzFeed to publish the dirty dossier to the world a few weeks before Donald Trump’s inauguration.
