Federal Prosecutor Now Looking Into John Brennan’s Role In Origins Of Russia Investigation

Former CIA director John Brennan could be in hot water.

Federal prosecutor John Durham is now looking into any role he may have played in the Russia hoax and the investigation that followed.

It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is leading the inquiry, has asked for Brennan’s emails, call logs and other documents, a person told the Times.

He is reportedly seeking to learn what Brennan told other officials about the CIA’s opinion of a now-infamous dossier that made claims about Russia and figures in President Trump’s orbit.

The Times reported that Durham is also looking at whether Brennan privately contradicted comments he made about the dossier and conclusions about Russian interference.

The people told the paper that the investigation was ongoing and it was not clear whether any crimes had been found.

Brennan has previously told MSNBC that he would answer questions from Durham if they were asked.

Breitbart has some background on this and how we got here:

In October, Brennan told NBC News that Durham had expressed an interest in interviewing “a number of current and former intelligence officials involved in examining Russia’s effort to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper.”

At the time, NBC News reported that U.S. Attorney General William Barr had significantly expanded Durham’s review into the origins of the Russian collusion hoax investigation after “finding something significant,” without elaborating further.

Durham also wants to talk to “CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russia’s activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers,” NBC News added, citing three anonymous sources from the agency.

Citing three anonymous sources, the Times reported Thursday evening that Durham has begun scrutinizing the role Brennan played in how the intelligence community assessed the 2016 U.S. election interference at the hands of Russia.

Brennan better hire a good lawyer.

This does not look good for him.
