Opinion| AG Barr Zeroing in on Brennan as Nexus of Russian Collusion Hoax? Speculation Grows As CIA Analysts ‘Lawyering Up’

Opinion| Lawrence David| Those growing disgusted with the interminable delays while waiting for Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report to be released might take some comfort in the knowledge that CIA analysts expecting to be questioned by US Attorney John Durham, are reported to be ‘lawyering’ up.

The most commonly held view is that the delay is the result of the stakeholders identified within the IG Report, who are assumed to be objecting to and toning down the wording, are blocking the release of certain evidence.

However, it’s just as likely that Durham’s scheduled interviews with CIA analysts, who worked closely with former CIA Director John Brennan while he was gathering the ‘evidence’ used to justify the Crossfire Hurricane spying operation against Trump campaign, may be the reason.

The fact that CIA analysts involved in assessing the intelligence surrounding Russia’s activities during the 2016 US election have begun to hire attorneys suggests that they are, at the least, conflicted about what they know and what they are prepared to discuss with prosecutors.

It’s been reported that the CIA is attempting to limit Durham’s access to classified documents that might reveal the true nature and the originating sources of the evidence Brennan used to convince FBI Director James Comey to open the collusion hoax investigation.
