Former top intelligence officials were aware that “Russian collusion” was a hoax cooked up by Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, but tried to cook up another scheme blaming Russia to help Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election, recently released reports show.
Special Counsel John Durham’s final report released last week revealed that back in late July 2016, the intelligence community received intelligence that Clinton planned to “vilify” Trump by linking him to Russia to distract from her private server woes. The intelligence was so “significant” that then-CIA Director John Brennan briefed it to President Obama and then-Vice President Biden and others at the White House on July 28, 2016, just days after receiving it.
Durham’s report said the next morning, on July 29, 2016, Brennan (pictured above) briefed then-FBI Director James Comey on the White House meeting, and that after he spoke with Comey and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, he and other CIA officials tried to limit the spread of the Clinton plan intelligence.
Despite this intelligence, the FBI launched an investigation into the Trump campaign, which then morphed into a special counsel investigation. Clinton’s involvement in the hoax was unknown until October 2017, when then-House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) uncovered Clinton’s involvement in creating the “pee dossier” that claimed collusion between Trump and Russia.
However, Brennan and Clapper continued to perpetuate the hoax up through 2019, and then in 2020, helped cook up a new scheme to help Biden win the 2020 presidential election by claiming the New York Post’s bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation.
According to the recently released report by the House Judiciary Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, Brennan and Clapper were intimately involved in crafting a statement for the public suggesting that the Post’s story was Russian disinformation just weeks before the 2020 election.
Miranda Devine, who along with Breitbart News’ Political Editor Emma-Jo Morris revealed the existence of the Hunter Biden laptop for the Post, said recently on Fox News, “This is something for the next Republican president to urgently clean out FBI, CIA, these deep state security agencies. They are a clear and present danger to American citizens.”
“They have turned the weapons that were used against our enemies overseas — they have now turned them on Americans,” she said.
