Brennan "Needs Very Good Lawyer" Says DiGenova; "He's Going To Be In Front Of A Grand Jury Shortly"

Veteran D.C. attorney Joe diGenova - who President Trump initially wanted to hire to represent him in the Mueller probe, only to have to step aside due to conflicts - sat down on Fox News on Thursday where he put a bow on what many believe was a high-stakes gamble by various members within the Obama Intelligence Community (IC) and others to infiltrate the Trump campaign and frame Donald Trump with Russiagate.

Key among the participants in this alleged plot is former CIA director John Brennan, whose involvement is thought to have dovetailed with the FBI's recently disclosed "operation Crossfire Hurricane" - the code name given to the agency's earliest counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign. The FBI says the operation was launched following a drunken conversation between a Clinton-linked Australian ambassador and a low-level Trump associate, George Papadopoulos, who may have been set up from the start after being fed information by a professor named Joseph Mifsud, who is currently missing.

When Carlson asked diGenova for an update on recent developments, the former federal prosecutor (and special counsel to boot) said:

  • We know that Hillary Clinton was illegally exonerated
  • We know that there was a substantial effort to frame the current President of the United States with crimes by infiltrating his campaign and then his administration with spies that the FBI had set upon them
  • We have learned that the crimes were committed by the FBI, senior members of the Department of Justice, John Brennan, Mr. Clapper, Mr. Comey, and others associated with the Democratic party
  • Donald Trump and his associates committed no crimes

When asked to explain the mechanics of the setup, diGenova tells Carlson that the FBI "purposely sent people into the Trump campaign to plant false information, then forced that information to be forwarded back to CIA and then funneled to the FBI, to be used as false information in FISA applications."

"Everybody involved in that process who knowingly participated committed a crime," diGenova added. The lawyer then offered Brennan some legal advice: 

Tucker: So why aren't they being held to account?

diGenova: As of today, I understand that a referral for criminal prosecution has been made by Mr. Horowitz to Mr. Huber, who is investigating the FISA leaks, the unmasking, the leaks of the unmasking and everything we described tonight. Criminal referrals have already been made, and I suggest that Mr. Brennan - who loves to make comments about the process, get himself a good lawyer. Not a good writer. 

Tucker: Wait, John Brennan the NBC news paid consultant?

diGenova: Yes, NBC News' consultant, the former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the most partisan hack leader of the CIA in history, needs a very very good lawyer. 

Tucker: Criminal lawyer?

diGenova: Yes, criminal lawyer - oh yes, he doesn't need a slip-and-fall lawyer, although he's going to slip and fall. He's going to be in front of a grand jury shortly.

Tucker: That's news. 

diGenova: Yes, and that's good news. 

Brennan, along with Strzok and former Secretary of State John Kerry were recently accused of setting "Russian espionage traps for minor players in the Trump campaign," according to journalist Paul Sperry.

Brennan also appears to have perjured himself during Congressional testimony about the Steele Dossier - and is being investigated by House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes. As Paul Sperry wrote in February:

In his May 2017 testimony before the intelligence panel, Brennan emphatically denied the dossier factored into the intelligence community’s publicly released conclusion last year that Russia meddled in the 2016 election “to help Trump’s chances of victory.”

Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document (excerpt here), even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign. -RealClear Investigations

Except, Brennan was feeding President Obama unverified dossier information according to Sperry - directly contradicting his testimony, while former NSA Director Michael Rogers told Congressional investigators that the dossier was in fact part of the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) in the Russia investigation.

In a March 5, 2018, letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, Adm. Rogers informed the committee that a two-page summary of the dossier — described as “the Christopher Steele information” — was “added” as an “appendix to the ICA draft,” and that consideration of that appendix was “part of the overall ICA review/approval process.”

...

Brennan put some of the dossier material into the PDB [presidential daily briefing] for Obama and described it as coming from a ‘credible source,’ which is how they viewed Steele,” said the source familiar with the House investigation. "But they never corroborated his sources.” -RCI

So, if Sperry's tweet is correct, Brennan, the Obama State department, the CIA and the FBI conspired to set "Russian espionage traps" for minor players in the Trump campaign, planted a mole (or several) within the Trump campaign, and then used a phony Clinton-funded dossier created by a former British spy to bolster their flimsy claims as part of the ICA.

Indeed, it appears the whole house of cards is about to collapse. 

Brennan keeps flying off the handle...

As various aspects of the alleged plot have unraveled, Brennan - who insisted on being sworn in under Obama on an original draft of the constitution (without the Bill of Rights and all those inconvenient amendments), spied on members of Congressendorsed torture, and ran Obama's covert drone warhas become progressively unhinged. 

When former Deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe was fired in March for lying under oath about leaks to the media, Brennan fired off an angry screed over Twitter in response to a celebratory tweet by President Trump, writing "When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you."

McCabe was fired after the DOJ's Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, found that he lied four times about authorizing a self-serving leak to the New York Times claiming that the FBI had not put the brakes on the Clinton Foundation investigation, during a period in which he was coming under fire over a $467,500 campaign donation his wife Jill took from Clinton pal Terry McAuliffe.

Brennan lost it again in April after President Trump called James Comey a "proven LEAKER & LIAR," who "leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted," firing back once again to let Trump know that his "kakistocracy is collapsing after its lamentable journey." 

Several weeks later after Trump tweeted "Clapper lied about (fraudulent) Dossier leaks to CNN ... He is a lying machine who now works for Fake News CNN," Brennan - who now works for MSNBC, fired back "Mr. Trump: Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. Jim Clapper is a man of integrity, honesty, ethics, & morality. You are not." 

Clapper notably leaked information about the Steele Dossier to CNN's Jake Tapper and appears to have lied to Congress about it under oath.

The revelation that Clapper was responsible for leaking details of both the dossier and briefings to two presidents on the matter is significant, because former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey wrote in one of four memos that he leaked that the briefing of Trump on salacious and unverified allegations from the dossier was necessary because “CNN had them and were looking for a news hook.” -The Federalist

Integrity, Honesty, Ethics, Morality & Leaking like a sieve

Speaking of leaks, Former Assistant FBI Director James Kallstrom told Fox's Maria Bartiromo in March that there was a plot among "high-ranking" people throughout government - "not just the FBI," who coordinated in a scheme to help Hillary Clinton avoid indictment

Kallstrom rattled off a list of involved parties - ending with Brennan...

Kallstrom: There's no question that he and McCabe and others in the FBI and the Justice Department, and, we're gonna find out the State Department and the National Security Advisor to the President, and the Deputy National Security advisor, and John Brennan.

While discussing Brennan's pithy tweet in response to McCabe's firing, Kallstrom dropped a bombshell: that Brennan had projected extreme animosity towards Trump, and was directly involved in leaks to the press

Kallstrom: My sources tell me that he was leaking almost weekly and daily. He was taking that bunch of phony crap supposedly from Russia, and peddling that through the Congress, all his buddies in the media, he was one of the active people. I've known him a long time.

Bartiromo: You think he's involved?

Kallstrom: Oh I think he's involved, absolutely. And I think it goes right to the top Maria.

Considering the direction things seem to be going for John Brennan and his role in what may be the largest scandal in US history, diGenova's advice to get a "very very good lawyer" seems sound. Meanwhile, as Congressional investigators and the DOJ's Inspector General wrap up their investigations of what happened, we wonder how much deeper the rabbit hole goes. Maybe even undersea?

I seem to recall telling everyone here that Federal investigations take a LOT of time--up to three years. But when they finally file charges on you, they will have a case so solid that you don't even need a lawyer.

The Deep State is fucked.

Brennan that arrogant, smug ass.

...and this https://www.mediaite.com/online/ex-cia-director-brennan-rips-trump-over…

The only question left is who will roll over on hillary/obama first at this point.

Someone posted earlier that they will start digging into the wiener's laptop soon....good times.

So many Crooks, so little time. How about - Trump "Needs Very Good Attorney General"

Brennan, old bag of wind. Clapper, early stage dementia. This should be easy. Just pick ONE, any ONE will do. House of cards.  

Sessions, hub of the coup, disguised as a DC tourist. Dumbo, checkered shorts, grab the camera, get on the tour bus and skeedaddle back to Ole Dixie. 

"Trust the plan" Is that what they told JFK? Q is is a Pied Piper, there to cover Session's back. The rest is ingratiating black hypno-magic bs to gain trust.

If anyone is wondering how this is being played (by the other side) going forward, the NYT manifesto hides the Obama DoJ appointees and points the finger at Brennan and the FBI, so there you have the script for the necessary fall guys, and will see the entire MSM (sans Fox) reinforce this misdirection. The problem the dumb cunts have in trying to paint an an entire narrative from scratch to protect themselves and others after their Russia collusion turned to shit, is Michael Horowitz.

Now that all the bad actors (named in the IG report) have about 3 weeks grace before they...err...fall from grace, watch who breaks cover first.

Funny, I always associated the "Deep State" with a cabal of scheming Blofelds (sinister laugh and white Persian optional).

And what does it turn out we have?

A cabal of politicized incompetent hubristic fuckwits like Comey and Brennan. We truly are living in an idiocracy when the aforementioned deluded cunts are pulling the strings.

 

Disappointed isn't the word.

After many Robert Ludlum novels I expected so much more.

These vermin aren't worth pouring gas over, lighting, and then pissing on.

There will be no major trial. It will be like the way Iran-Contra resolved, where, IIRC, the former head of the CIA died on an operating table, a couple lesser figures had unfortunate accidents, and one not-so-small player had a "botched" suicide attempt.  In the end, a few Royal-row pieces will be sacrificed, but the King & Queen as well as the game itself will be protected.

Its hilarious for the mass of Hedgers here to get continually PUNKED by these leaks from a non-existant OIG report.... on a Non-existant OIG investigation.   Do any of you realize Jeff, I need to bust a Pot Dealer Sessions is our AG?

People believe in a Q-Anon, I guess those are the same people that believe in Santa.  

Do you Think for ONE MOMENT if Q were real, that he would not have been found and identified by now?  There is no way to post anonymously to a Website without it being tracked.  Ultimately in the 5-7 year future there will be an article posted somewhere that it turns out that the "Q thing" was a deepstate scam.

There will be NO report let alone any fallout....  Come on guys dont know know bad acting when you see it?

Very likely untrue.  Robert Boyce, chief of detectives in NYC said he saw the contents and it contained child pedophilia and evidence of many other crimes. 

 

He also said Trump had to release documents or he'd come forward but hasn't.  That to me means there is some strategic release, not that he's a liar, since he had no incentive or gain for publicly saying so; in fact the opposite. It's very dangerous to expose the clintons, most people end up in the potomac

DEATH!  Please God, let them hang from the gallows in a public display.  I personally want to throw fruit and vegetables at these fuckers!

Can POTUS command an public hanging?

One thing about Trump is he is a vindictive motherfucker.  He never gets mad, but he sure does get even.  Anyone read the story about Mar-a-Largo and the Post (cereal) sisters?  Or how about the American flag and Palm Beach government?

You make a good point about Q, they'd have been outed/offed long ago if it weren't an op of some kind. And it does seem like an implausible scenario to concoct to rescue a failed campaign - after the fact.  It's like the plots and schemes you'd come up with in 3rd grade - and the grade school manner in which they all acted just reinforces it.  However, most of life is just poor acting with a lousy script by a bunch of wanna-be's.

I still find it so hard to believe the lengths to which they went to secure a victory for a sure bet - which echoes Watergate in so many respects.  It seems that even a little more effort on her part campaigning in "deplorable" territory and keeping her overbearing personality in check would have been enough, but no.

It does say a lot about human nature that it was ultimately the desire for revenge that prompted Felt, not any "higher calling".  Nixon fingered him as the leaker early on during 'the long national nightmare'.

Anonymity was easier to pull off in that era where only the police state had the ability to track one's movements and communications.  Today there are too many ways this information can be found out by reasonably curious and devious people, let alone what the police state has access to.

All my ex-fed buddies were telling me how the FBI is honorable, upstanding guys up and down the line. I was telling them a year ago that McCabe would be fired first, and then the pieces would start coming down. They literally laughed at me. “The guy is the DepDir, former Acting D! Never gonna happen!!!!” I bet one of them a run around the Central Park reservoir in tightly whiteys he would be fired. When the shit heated up he wanted to modify it to “criminally charged” then later to “convicted or pled guilty.”

It is so obvious that the FBI/DOJ had a bunch of guys, like McCabe who believed if they helped Hillary out, they would get big bumps up the ladder. McCabe would become Director. Comey would become AG. Strzok would become DD-CI. Page, Ohr AAG.

Priestap must be yakking his head off. The guy has been focused on REAL counterintelligence work the past couple of years, mostly cyber, both mil and commercial, and mostly China - running all over the country screaming about their evil - and real - plot. He FINALLY got some traction with Trump. I am wondering how much money was funneled from China to the Clinton Foundation to allow the absolute looting of our tech and software industries under the Great Obammer. When does he get his payoff - appointment as Special Director of the Clinton Foundation, with his own plane and eight figure stipend?

 

The FBI` has screwed up everything it has touched in the past few years. I am sure they stop a ton of small-scale terror attacks, but it seems they miss massive leads and tips at an alarming rate.

They were not out to stop Russians from meddling in the election, they were out to hammer Trump, and protect HRC. And then they screwed it all up. If Comey/McCabe had dealt with Weiner’s laptop immediately it’s a non-issue. Instead they tried to hide it until after the election, but some honest agents weren’t gonna let them sit on it.So, BOOM, chickenshit Comey does a CYA, and costs her the election. Does ANYONE believe he was trying to be “fair” or “careful”????? He was trying not to PISS OFF the woman he believed would win, so he would get to be AG. When the NYFO threatened to tell Guliani et al what they were doing, he had to announce it, then quash it ASAP, but it was too late.
