Russia Hacking Allegations Driven By a Serial Liar

Today’s lengthy Washington Post’s story makes it clear that former CIA boss John Brennan is largely responsible for driving the claim that Russia hacked the election.

But Brennan is a proven, documented liar.  He was busted for lying to Congress and the American public by claiming  that the CIA wasn’t spying on the Congressional investigation into torture … when it was.

Indeed, the Washington Post called on Brennan to be fired for lying.

And Brennan lied when – as Obama’s counter-terrorism advisor – he said that in the past year there had not been a single collateral death from drone strikes. (He later changed that slightly to say there was no “credible evidence” of such deaths.)   But there was abundant and credible evidence of collateral deaths from drone strikes.  As just one example among many, a March 2011 CIA drone attack in Pakistan killed some 50 people, including tribal elders who were gathered for a tribal conclave.)

Trevor Timm pointed out at the Guardian:

Internal intelligence documents leaked to McClatchy later confirmed Brennan to have lied at the time ….


When Brennan was approved by the Senate, many of his friends told the media he wanted to get the CIA out of the drone business and hand operations over to the Pentagon, but of course once he assumed his office, he seems to have reversed course and kept the drone program under CIA control.


Brennan also fed the public wildly inaccurate details about the Osama bin Laden raid in 2011, and despite condemning leaks of classified information from others, he has often leaks classified information himself to suit his own needs.




This is the type of spy … who lies because he doesn’t like to tell the truth.

Indeed, Brennan’s CIA even created hacking techniques to frame other countries for hacking incidents.  

Why is the media taking Brennan’s claims at face value?  Especially when some of the other claims of Russian hacking have officially been debunked?

As Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Seymour Hersch said in January in a story questioning the whole Russian hacking story:

[If I had been covering the story,] I would have made [John] Brennan into a buffoon. A yapping buffoon in the last few days. Instead, everything is reported seriously.

Postscript: The other intelligence official behind many of the Russian hacking claims – James Clapper – is also a confirmed liar.

And see this and this.

Oh look, the CIA's PR press officer is back.

What's the spin today, chindit13?

John went to church somewhere? ...

For fucking what?

Because he feels bad about murdering people wholesale on a daily basis?

I'll bet he was at mass.....and on the front row too.

Trying to look as un-Hello Kitty as humanly possible.

He was recently spotted wearing a Leprechaun outfit, red haired wig and dancing a little gig at Traitor Vic's Irish Pub according to Snopes.

This dude Brennan's shit is getting thinner by the minute out here in fly over.

Putin's not a Communist.  He seems more of a logistics guy, not ideological.  He's an Authoritarian and a clever one.  When push comes to shove, utterly ruthless.You're right about the credibility factor in a good lie, though.  The best liars I've ever encountered played on the reasonable person's understanding that two people can see the same things and come to slightly different conclusions, say a 10-degree divergence if you think of the range of interpretation to be a circle.  They play on that 10-degree divergence, constantly widening it, and before you know it, you've come to believe, or at least give credibility to, a 90-degree divergence.  When you call them on it, they make you out to be the unreasonable one, citing back to you how you agreed with them at a 30-degree and 60-degree divergence.A good liar can really mess with your head and your ability to tell what's what.

But, back on topic.

This summer has stepped up the stench of desperation.

From top to bottom, the increased use of unethical and immoral acts in the name of self preservation has just begun.

Unlike POTUS Bush and Colonel Kilgore, I do not wish to declare Victory prematurely.

Too many skeletons in too many closets.Blatantly criminal activity like Hillary's handling of classified documents is swept aside while the baseless Russia nonsense gets traction.My guess is that some percentage of our lawmakers are compromised.The Clinton machine or Deep State still has incriminating information on a sizeable portion of the decision makers. We need a congressional crime debt jubilee.2 Month window to resign immune from any criminal charges for past deeds.

of course it is.  in the 50's they used infidelity and mistresses, then they had to move on to homosexuality to compromise because cheating on your wife became an everyday thing and had no leverage anymore.  same thing has happened to homosexuality so 'they' had to move on the paedophillia to gain leverage.

Why of course he lies! He is a spy. Lying and deceiving is the most important part of the spy's job. Spy, who wakes up in the morning and does not ready his lying plan for the day until breakfast, is a menace to himself, his spy colleagues, and his country.Why anybody (except maybe his superiors) would believe a word a spy says, is beyond me.

John Brennan is a closet Muslim brother. ........ Not that being a Muslim is bad. .. The bad part is when you are a secret enemy agent vowed to destroy the government you have infiltrated.

Brennan is a secret agent in a religion where lying to everyone NOT in the same religion is a given and expressly called for in their holy book and teachings. ... Islam is a political ideology not a religion anyway.

And then there is this little business of the stealing personal information of MILLIONS of Americans and spying on them for BLACKMAILING purposes. ......... Him, Clapper and Barry O'Oreo. (and another closet Muzzie, BTW.)…

And yes this HAMMER system is the case being MASSIVELY covered-up by the FBI and the subject of the Freedom Watch lawsuits. =

Oh, one more thing, DHS is CRAWLING with the same closet Muzzies, ......... But that well is too deep to bail out here.

Will all of this ever see the light of day?

Not if John Brennan can help it...........and Allah is willing.

The problem is, the corruption is so acute, there's really no one agency to trust.

DC is a sick, twisted place. Up is down, and bright is dark.

Lots of very bad hombres, looking to grab power and money for themselves, likely turned representative government FUBAR..

Rhetorical question: At what other time would the NYT/WaPo have taken ANYTHING that comes out of the mouths of Clapper/Brennan at face value???
Answer: NEVER!!!! (because they are now a PART of Clapper/Brennan!!! They are the propaganda arm of the CIA/NSA. Clapper/Brennan will tell you it's raining outside, when the sun is shining, if they have something to gain by lying to you. There IS such a thing as EVIL, and they personify it.)

Could not find any evidence on the web that Rand Paul or Jason Chaffetz are vocal in denying that Russian hacking took place. Chaffitz is running and hiding. Could not find any names of any other(a dozen or 2) that vocally state that a Russian hack did not happen. The only source I have is the web. Perhaps you have better sources?

Brennan serves his masters. Lying is acceptable to his divine master and to his temporal masters.…

Fools find virtue in believing liars. Russian hackers would have used similar tools as the CIA uses to cover its tracks, as revealed in Vault 7.… Ergo, CIA claims of Russian hacking are not verified.

The essence of the CIA, or spying, is deceit. Brennan and Clapper are acknowledged perjurers. Ergo, Russian hacking claims are discredited by their impeached witnesses.…

If you keep telling the same lie long enough, people will believe it as the truth.Russian "moskirovka" tells lies and then quickly moves on to the next lie before the investigators can put the truth out about the first lie. It is a rolling system that prevents the truth from catching up to the lies.

Yes, that's Goebbels line...tell a lie big enough and often enough...Except in this case, there's a short-circuit in that line of reasoning.  The short is, the lie is being promoted by known and professional liars (i.e., people who earn their pay by BEING deceptive and dishonest).  Moreover, the lies have been told to people who have accumulated a lifetime's worth of evidence NOT to trust government.  So when some unidentified spokesman or "inside" source says something, most  rational people simply disregard it as if the speaker had just uttered gibberish.  Or put it this way:  there's a reason that in 1964, more than 70% of citizens expressed trust that government usually operated with the country's best interests in mind.  Now, fewer than 20% believe that.   In that <20% we no doubt will find the self-serving political establishment who benefit from the lie's promotion, or we find the mentally unstable (oh, sorry, I guess that's redundant, isn't it?) .
