CIA officials, including the upper echelons, are required to be apolitical. The main purpose of the CIA is to gather intelligence on America’s enemies abroad and guarantee the safety and security of the citizens of this country. The administration of CIA chief John Brennan came nowhere near meeting this standard.
Brennan used the CIA to lie for political ideological goals. This was shown earlier when Brennan used the CIA to conduct illegal surveillance on the Senate Intelligence Committee and then lied about it.
This is the same Brennan who coerced the FBI into investigating the sham of Trump-Russia collusion using the unverified Steele dossier. In Brennan’s own words: “Just because it is unverified doesn’t mean it isn’t true.”
This is the same Brennan that lied about NSA surveillance of American citizens and only avoided a perjury trial because he resigned, and the statute of limitations ran out because of obfuscation from the Obama administration. Brennan even had the audacity to proclaim he just gave the “least untruthful answer.” For anyone else, a lie like this would land them in jail. But the Obama administration and the sycophantic media ignored this crime, once again.
The administration of the CIA under the orders of Brennan operated as an offshoot of the Hillary campaign. Using spies and connections in England and Estonia, Brennan weaponized the CIA with phony intelligence obtained through these sources in his attempt to delegitimize the Trump candidacy. The goal was to cause maximum political damage to conservatives by utilizing a multiagency smear campaign that has led the government to end up in a sham of a Special Council investigation being used by the leftists to affect the midterms.
