More explosive news.



Quote:
Meaning, the origin of the 2016 counterintelligence operation, which was specifically started by CIA Director John Brennan sharing his ‘raw intelligence product’ with the FBI, was not an official product of the U.S. intelligence community. Brennan was NOT using official partnerships with intelligence agencies of our Five-Eyes partner nations; and he did not provide raw intelligence -as an outcome of those relationships- to the FBI.

The questions, many of which are rhetorical against the backdrop of political motives, become: if the EC is not based on official intelligence from U.S. intelligence apparatus or any of the ‘five-eyes’ partners, then what is the origin, source and purpose therein, of the unofficial raw intelligence? Who created it? And why?

Why don’t you go ahead and listen to the interview, then read the article. I swear it won’t turn you into a republican. It’s talking about some very simple government processes that were not followed.

And it ends with a mystery. Come back and tell us what that mystery is and what you think the answer is?

Because I have read enough from that website to see that it is jam full of conspiracy theories and devoid of journalistic integrity. It seems committed above all else in reinforcing a very specific bias. I had enough of my share of that nonsense with the nutjobs at tjmk. While I'm sure there is some truth published there, it is in a sea of half truths and outright fabrications.

I don't go picking through my bowel movements searching for corn either.

It's the sort of "explosive" you need to sit down for. On a toilet.

So it looks like what CT has been saying for months is starting to get out. The Nunez interview up thread says this whole investigation started without an intelligence product. Meaning it was a political counter intelligence operation using our IC as that vehicle.

I can’t wait to see what the IG has uncovered.

LOL, will you go on record now as saying that you think the IG is doing a good and honest investigation, or do you want to wait and compare the report to what you "know" is true?

Well good for you.

I am sure that your opinions on this issue will be just as valid as your other opinions on this issue.

An investigation was started without the final investigation results in hand? Shocking I say. Truly shocking.

The Treehouse was miles ahead of fake news on both Trayvon Martin and Ferguson, and completely accurate. Of course, they couldn't prevent fake news from destroying both George Zimmerman and Darren Wilson, two people guilty of nothing.

No, thatís not it at all. An investigation was started with no intelligence product. Meaning the investigation was a sham.

Assuming for the moment that your premise is correct, I don't see how your conclusion follows. Perhaps you can explain?
