Barr Investigates: How Did the CIA Determine that Russia Interfered in the Election?

June 13, 2019 (EIRNS)—In a story yesterday which is explosive if true, the New York Times wrote that Attorney General William Barr and investigator U.S. Attorney John Durham will interview two senior CIA officers because “Mr. Barr has been interested in how the CIA drew its conclusions about Russia’s election sabotage, particularly the judgment that Mr. Putin ordered their operatives to help Mr. Trump by discrediting his opponent, Hillary Clinton....

“Mr. Barr wants to know more about the CIA sources who helped inform its understanding of the details of the Russian interference campaign.... He also wants to better understand the intelligence that flowed from the CIA to the FBI in the summer of 2016.”

This goes right to the basic area that former NSA Technical Director Bill Binney must be brought in to testify before Congress about: Where is the evidence of Russian interference? And why did then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo refuse to follow up Binney’s testimony to him on Oct. 24, 2017?

The summer of 2016 is when British GCHQ spy head Robert Hannigan brought the first so-called evidence of Russian interference to then-CIA Director John Brennan, according to a story in the Guardian.
