Watch John Brennan Desperately try to Set a Favorable Narrative, and Fail

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The cornered rats are really scurrying for cover this week, and ex-CIA Director Dar Adol, er, John Brennan provided today’s best example in an interview with MSNBC’s favorite pet fake Republican, former Jeb! Bush operative Nicolle Wallace. During the course of this brief interview, Brennan admits that the CIA was indeed “coordinating closely” with the FBI in its spying operation that targeted Trump Campaign officials, and continued to push the narrative that none of this obvious spying was in fact “spying.” *sigh*

Here’s the clip:

As a service to those of you who still like to read stuff, I spent 20 minutes of my life transcribing this clip verbatim. I’ve also inserted comments contained within [ ] noting Brennan’s body language, which clearly indicates he is lying throughout this clip and is very self-conscious and frankly transparent about it. Here you go.

======================================

Nicolle Wallace: Who uses the word “spying” to describe lawful surveillance in a counterintelligence probe, other than Sean Hannity [snicker,snicker]?

Brennan: [clears throat] um,uh well William Barr, uh, clearly, and uh I think Donald Trump as well.

Wallace: Why?

Brennan: uh, well, [closed eyes, hunched shoulders] I think they’re clearly trying [smiling with corners of mouth turned down] to, uh, imply, and to really [hunched shoulders, tucked chin, wiggling in seat] you know, uh,uh, indicate that there was uh, misuse [nods head, affirming the misuse] of authorities…that was not the case [nods head again].

Does CIA ‘spy’? Yes. [nods head, affirming the spying] uh, do we spy against our foreign adversaries? Yes. [nods again] Do we spy against domestic individuals? No, we do not [nods head repeatedly during this, indicating deception]. We cuw…we worked very closely [hunched shoulders] with the FBI[he just admitted CIA coordinated with the FBI to spy on the Trump Campaign], and when the Russians were trying to interfere in that election, and to change the outcome of it in their favor, we, the CIA and FBI, worked very collaboratively so that we could have that ability to see what the Russians were doing and who they were working with.

So when William Barr said ‘spying’, it clearly indicated that there was something that was inappropriate, if not illegal [nods head]. Nobody used the term spying when they’re referring to legitimate, predicated, authorized investigative actions that were part of the FBI. [Note how he leaves out the CIA in that passage.]

Wallace: Why do you think he uses it? Is it taunting, does it signal to the intelligence community that he’s coming for you? Does it signal that he’s watched too much Sean Hannity? What does that word mean inside the intelligence community?

Brennan: Well I think he’s playing to Mr. Trump. I think throughout that testimony it was clear that what Mr. Barr was doing was try to say things and to try to characterize things [rapid eye-blinking throughout this] in a manner that was consistent with what Mr. Trump has said, but also very supportive of it. So, eh, and wh…and when he responded to Kamala Harris and others on these issues [looks down and to the left] he thought about it and they asked him, well, was there spying? Well, well yeah, there was.[!]

Well, to me that really suggests that he already is [hunches shoulders, wiggles in seat, looks down and to the left] looking at things that w..uh..[hunches shoulders, nods head] really did not happen. It was predicated, it was legal, it was authorized [oh, so it DID happen?]. So if they want to take a look at the FISA practices [shakes head throughout] look at other things? [hunches shoulders, shakes head] uh, that’s legitimate. There is a question about whether or not there’s gonna be all these competing investigations and how that’s gonna suck the air out of that whole environment [oh, like the past two years for example?] But it’s clear in my mind [looking down and to the left] that what Mr. Barr was suggesting was that the FBI [and the CIA?] was engaged in politically-motivated spying against one of the candidates.

=================================

So, over the last 10 days or so, we have seen Sally Yates, James Comey, James Baker, James Clapper and now John Brennan making very public efforts to create a favorable narrative for their behavior during 2016. This is being done in advance of the pending public release of the Horowitz Report on FISA abuse, and amid news of the advance of AG William Barr’s own investigation into the origins of the spying operation against the Trump Campaign. We’ve also seen Comey and Rod Rosenstein sniping at one another in public, and Comey and Brennan pointing fingers at each other over which of them insisted upon including the Steele Dossier in their FISA applications.

This is clearly a coordinated effort among these likely suspects, and may well indicate that a draft of the final Horowitz report began circulating about two weeks ago, sending the people named in it into a panic.

It seems to me that someone really should remind all of these skunks that they have the right to remain silent.

That is all.

The Deep State and its Media Enablers Need Better Talking Points

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The North Korea Summit is cancelled!!!!  Woo-hooooooo!!!! Kim wins!!!! Break out the champagne!!!!  Oh, wait, it may be back on?  Trump sandbagged us again?  Isn’t there a plane crash or school shooting we can report on instead? – As we noted in Friday morning’s Campaign Update, Thursday was a day of anti-American celebration in the nation’s fake news media and among Democrat officials everywhere, as they all thought that President Trump’s letter “cancelling” the scheduled June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea had produced a victory for their favorite brutal dictator, and a loss for their hated U.S. President.

All the celebrations and snarky remarks suddenly gave way to disappointment and subject-shifting on Friday, as Kim Jong Un issued communications making it clear he is anxious to move forward with the meeting, and President Trump and other U.S. officials said there was a chance the June 12 meeting might still take place after all.  The toothy smiles displayed on Thursday by the on-air fake talent at CNN and MSNBC gave way to pouty frowns as it became suddenly obvious to even the dimmest bulbs at the two fakest news channels that they and their Democrat buddies had been presidentially trolled yet again.

So they did what fake editors and fake reporters and fake talking heads always do and shifted the subject to something else, like the ever-reliable fake Russia Collusion fantasy play.

Speaking of which, the detestable deep state snake John Brennan (who has just got to be the role model for the Dar Adol character on “Homeland” – those who watch that show will know what I’m talking about), who has spent his entire career warping reality to fit the deep state’s preferred narrative of the day, on Friday told some fake interviewer that President Trump is  “masterful at… twisting the truth in order to support his narrative.”  Pot, meet kettle.

Brennan also spent a great deal of time parroting James Comey’s and James Clapper’s tortured distinctions between what is a “spy” as opposed to what constitutes a “confidential source.”  Note to deep state coup cabal participants:  If you are having to spend weeks attempting to redefine terms like “spy” and “spying” when the public is already aware of tons of proof that you sent “spies” into the Trump Campaign and transition team to “spy” on them, you are in deep, deep doo-doo.  Even deeper than the doo-doo you normally gladly inhabit.

Of course, this joint media/Democrat/Comey/Clapper/Brennan effort to redefine what the words “spy” and “spying” mean is just the latest iteration in the evolution of their response to the steady drip-drip-drip of proof that the Obama Administration conspired to fix the 2016 election for the Pantsuit Princes.  It is in fact the sixth stage of this ill-conceived effort to deceive that we have witnessed since last January:

  • Ridiculing claims by President Trump that his campaign was spied on;
  • Lying to multiple congressional committees about claims the Trump campaign was spied on;
  • Attempting to criminalize claims that the Trump campaign was spied on;
  • Admitting that, well, yes we spied on the Trump campaign, but it was for his own good and he should have been happy about it;
  • Saying of course we spied on the Trump campaign because it was our patriotic duty;
  • And now, a classic Clintonian effort to parse what the meaning of “spying” is.

It has devolved to this for the simple fact that, at the end of the day, this desperate effort to parse words and terms is all they’ve got.  They’ve been caught with their filthy hands in the cookie jar.

Now, they’re all facing the final stages of the slow-rolling revelations of their massive wrongdoing as former and current FBI agents are coming out of the woodwork, volunteering to testify before congressional committees about what they witnessed while all the shenanigans were going on.  First up in this parade will be Bill Priestap, the Chief of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, who was the boss of FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok during the coup effort.

He will be joined in June by two other agents  – Michael Steinbach, formerly head of the agency’s national security division; and Steinbach’s predecessor, John Giacalone – as witnesses before the House Oversight Committee and House Judiciary Committee.  Priestap’s testimony should be especially compelling given his likely role in the whole thing – he was frequently mentioned in Strzok’s texts with his lover Lisa Page – and the probability that he has remained  in his job most likely because he’s been cooperating with the investigations by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.

In addition to the coming parade of FBI agents testifying before congress, Brennan/Clapper/Comey and their fake media support group also face the impending release of the next report from Horowitz, which covers the fake investigation in to the Coughing Crook’s email scandal and other Hillary-related matters.

It’s going to be awesome to see what new line of tortured talking points the cabal and their media support group come up with next.

Just another day in the plot to take down a president keeps crumbling America.

That is all.
