According to new declassified intelligence documents, the story of the Trump-Russia collusion was a plan orchestrated by the Clinton Campaign, with the approval of Hillary herself, to discredit the opponent and distract the public from her Emailgate. The Russians knew of Clinton's plan to accuse Trump of being a Putin man, and before the investigation into the Trump Campaign, US agencies knew that the Russians knew. President Obama was also informed by CIA Director Brennan, who is now speaking to Durham and seems intent on dumping everyone…
Sensational developments on the origins of Russiagate come from the letter in which the director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, yesterday informed the chairman of the Senate Justice Commission, Lindsey Graham, of the new declassified intelligence documents. US intelligence agencies learned in late July 2016 from Russian intelligence analyzes that on July 26, Hillary Clinton personally approved a plan to fabricate the story of the collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, in an attempt to harm Donald Trump and distract. the American public from its Emailgate . A real bomb dropped a few hours after the first presidential debate and the hearing in the Commission of former FBI director Comey, set for tomorrow morning.
The agents were aware that the information obtained could be false or exaggerated, the fact is that 1) the then head of the CIA Brennan personally informed President Obama of the matter (so he must have considered it at least worthy of his attention); 2) the case was referred to the FBI for investigation in early September, so long before the election and before the FBI sought and obtained FISA warrants to oversee the Trump Campaign; 3) the Clinton Campaign, through Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier, was actually conducting this operation and the Russians were aware of it.
But let's see what Ratcliffe writes in the letter to Graham:
"At the end of July 2016, US intelligence agencies obtained information on Russian intelligence analysis that claimed that US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved an election campaign plan to unleash a scandal against candidate Donald Trump. linking it to Putin and the hacking of the National Democratic Committee by the Russians. The IC does not know the accuracy of this statement, or the extent to which the analysis of Russian intelligence may reflect an exaggeration or a fabrication ”.
According to his handwritten notes, then CIA Director John Brennan later informed President Obama and other senior national information security officials, including Hillary Clinton's' alleged approval on July 26, 2016, of a proposed one of his foreign policy advisers, to denigrate Donald Trump by unleashing a scandal that denounced interference by the Russian security services ”.
"On September 7, 2016, US intelligence officials passed an investigative recommendation to FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok regarding" US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's approval of a plan involving presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers interfering in US elections as a means of distracting the public from his use of a private mail server. "
Revelations which, if confirmed, would show that FBI Director Comey and CIA Director Brennan, the Crossfire Hurricane investigation team, as well as President Obama and possibly Deputy Biden, knew from the start that Russiagate , the alleged Trump-Russia collusion could have been a hoax fabricated by the Clinton Campaign to harm his opponent. And they would support the thesis according to which the Steele dossier, on which the FBI relied to obtain the surveillance warrant against Carter Page, was the work of the Russian disinformatja .
In summary, the FBI has known since September 7, 2016 that the Russians were aware of a Clinton plan to discredit Trump by accusing him of collusion with Russia. He knew that the Steele dossier had been commissioned and paid for by the Clinton Campaign, and he had solid evidence to believe that it was largely the result of Russian misinformation. Indeed, Steele and the company that hired him to search for compromising material about Trump, Fusion GPS , were working for a sanctioned Russian oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, at the time. But not only that: we learned last week that Steele's main source, a former Brookings Institution researcher, a think tank close to the Democrats, named Igor Danchenko, was well known to the FBI itself because it was suspected for years by the agency of being a Russian spy and deemed a "potential threat to national security". Yet, knowing all this, the FBI used the Steele dossier to oversee the Trump campaign.
Now, the question that Senator Graham rightly asks is, “Did the FBI investigate the claims against Clinton as they did the claims about Trump? And if not, why? ”.
Indeed, it seems that rather than investigating whether Russian intelligence had infiltrated the anti-Trump operation of the Clinton Campaign and sowed disinformation, when the intelligence report arrived, the FBI ignored it and instead used that dossier, the main one of which source knew he was a suspected Russian agent, to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign.
In short, the only campaign that seems to have colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 elections is the Clinton Campaign. While the FBI abused its powers to interfere not only in the election process, but also in the transition process, and attempt to sabotage the new administration.
At this point, the dates really become very important. On July 31, 2016, just five days after the date the Russians believe Hillary Clinton personally approved the plan, the FBI formally opens its counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, dubbed the Crossfire Hurricane . And coincidentally, the "news" on the basis of which the investigation was opened, as confirmed by the "Electronic Communication" (EC) opening the investigation , declassified on May 20, had reached the FBI's legal attack on London, through the embassy's deputy head of mission, on July 27 (the day before, July 26, Clinton would have given her ok to the anti-Trump plan). And who had that report come from? By a "friendly foreign government", in the person of Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, very close to the Clinton family, who reported a conversation with the then Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos in a London bar a couple of months late. Although no emails were mentioned in the conversation, Downer and the FBI agents who opened the investigation based on her report linked the "harmful" information for Clinton, which the Russians allegedly were in possession of, according to Papadopoulos, to the hacked emails at DNC. Papadopoulos had in turn learned of that "dirt" material about Clinton in the hands of the Russians from the mysterious Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud – who was also well integrated into Clintonian circles, and in close contact with figures of the American, British and Italian security services – who he had met for the first time in Rome, at Link Campus University. But in Downer's report to the US embassy in London there is no mention of emails, nor does it appear that Papadopoulos had mentioned any emails.
Also yesterday, CBS News learned that the declassified documents would have been provided to DNI Ratcliffe by Attorney Durham (appointed by Attorney General William Barr to shed light on the origins of Russiagate and on the conduct of all the US agencies involved), who would have opened a new line of investigation.
Among these documents are Brennan's handwritten notes, which suggests that it was the former head of the CIA who handed them over to Attorney Durham. A great bad news for both Clinton and former President Obama, because it seems that Brennan has decided to drag everyone to the bottom with him …
On the other hand, the declassified documents yesterday would also confirm, as we have already reported , that Brennan managed to politically manipulate the final assessment of the US Intelligence Community on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections – conclusions used to justify the continuation of the investigation into the alleged Trump-Russia collusion – by excluding from the report all information and analysis, such as that on the Clinton plan that the Russians were aware of, that contradicted the thesis that Russia had interfered in the electoral process to help Trump and harm the former secretary of state. It was probably the exact opposite …
