Bombshell: Obama Briefed That Hillary Was Planning Russia Hoax. Went Along With It.
Three Points That Point to the Worst Political Crime in Our Nation's History
The media spits out the word “bombshell” the way ballplayers spit out pumpkins seeds. But rarely does it apply.
Yet on Tuesday comes a legitimate news bombshell. A revelation that blows up the Trump Russia Hoax, detonating the biggest scandal in American political history right in President Obama’s mitts.
Barack Obama was warned by CIA director John Brennan that Hillary Clinton was allegedly cooking up the Trump-Russia conspiracy hoax. Those warnings came true. Obama knew it, and still allowed the Trump-Russia hoax to continue.
The revelation is found in a letter the Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe sent the Senate Judiciary Committee declassified today.
READ LETTER HERE:
Three Points That Point to the Worst Political Crime in Our Nation’s History
The information declassified by Ratcliff indicates three things.
- Russian intelligence analysts believed Hillary Clinton had “approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal” against Donald Trump “by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.” Our Intelligence community didn’t know (at that time) the accuracy of that allegation.
- Then CIA Director John Brennan briefed President Obama and other senior national security officials on the intelligence. (Did that include Vice President Biden?)
Including the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.”
- In September 2016, CIA agents sent an investigative referral to FBI Director James Comey and Trump-hater Peter Strzok, demanding an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s approval of the plan “as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private mail server.”
As we know, rather than investigating Clinton for creating the hoax, Comey and Strzok and the rest continued their counter-intelligence investigation into Trump and his campaign based on those (bogus) Russian accusations.
And Barack Obama rolled with it, despite the fact that right as he was getting these briefings, Hillary Clinton’s campaign and her surrogates were starting to run around accusing Trump of the very things the intelligence report said she would.
In fact, on January 5, 2017, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, James Comey, John Brennan — in other words, people who’d known since July it was a suspected hoax — plotted how to continue the fake Russia investigation into the Trump Presidency. They plotted how to frame war hero Lt. General Michael Flynn. They plotted against the duly elected President of the United States.
America, you were set up by your former president. And it is sickening.
Greg Price summarized nicely on Twitter:
Just so we're clear: Brennan briefed Obama on Russian intelligence that Hillary was allegedly planning the Russia hoax, it was referred to Comey and Strzok for investigation, and the FBI still proceeded to go after Michael Flynn and fabricate evidence to the FISA courts https://t.co/9Dp6bqLykd

Sean Davis at The Federalist summarized the story this way:
Russian knew what Hillary was doing, the FBI knew that Russia knew what Hillary was doing, and instead of stopping Russia from seeding the Steele dossier w/ disinformation, the FBI used that disinformation in false warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. https://t.co/KJH9yV4jqk

Democrats Say This is Just Russian Disinformation
Predictably, Democrats are telling Politico the original report out of Russia about Hillary concocting the Trump Russia story is just Russian “disinformation.” Hillary’s people call it “baseless bull****.”
And like good obedient lemmings Politico nods and accepts without stating the obvious and already proven on the record:
Hillary Clinton’s campaign did in fact “stir up a scandal.” They did pay Fusion GPS to concoct the Trump Russia collusion story. They did, in fact, out of the blue, start saying Trump was tied to Russia’s (alleged) hack of the DNC.
Fusion GPS with Christopher Steele did use discredited sources, including a sub-source the FBI thought was a Russian spy. Passed on as verified crazy rumors that the source for those rumors himself said was sketchy at best and likely Russian disinformation.
It is also a fact that she succeeded in her goal. Peter Strzok shorted the Hillary email investigation — even after hundreds of thousands of emails were found on Anthony Weiner’s computer — in order to focus on Trump and Crossfire Hurricane.
It is also true that John Brennan, who knew of Hillary’s plans, was telling then Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid the Steele dossier was verified, when he knew it wasn’t.
It is also true that even if the original report out of Russia was unverified, the CIA still asked the FBI to investigate what Hillary was up to. And the FBI blew it off and continued looking at Trump.
We also have the newly released messages that FBI and CIA agents were so horrified by what they were seeing and what the FBI and Obama Administration was doing that they bought professional liability insurance. They knew that when the truth came out, there would be hell to pay and they’d likely be forced to pay it.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe released a statement to counter the Democrat’s response. “To be clear, this is not Russian disinformation and has not been assessed as such by the intelligence community. I will be briefing Congress on the sensitive sources and methods by which it was obtained in the coming days.”
Obama and Biden
Now Joe Biden is vying to be President of the United States. He must be asked about his role in this political crime for the ages.
He initially said he had no involvement in the Flynn case, which is a lie. He not only was in on the January 5, 2017 meeting, he was the last of the host of Obama administration figures to unmask General Flynn. And notes from Peter Strzok suggest he’s the one who suggested going after Michael Flynn using the Logan Act.
He must be asked if he was in on the briefing given by Brennan about the Russian intel that Hillary was planning the Russian hoax.
He must be asked when he became aware Hillary Clinton paid Fusion GPS and was responsible for the Steele dossier.
He must be asked if he will personally apologize for what was done to President Trump, his family, his campaign and White House staff.
He must be asked when the Obama Administration will confess to putting America through three years of the Trump-Russia obsession in order to sabotage his successor.
He must be asked why he was party to a non-peaceful transfer of power.
