Former CIA Chief John Brennan Confirms – No One has Tried to Stop our Russia Investigation

Former CIA Chief and Obama lackey, John Brennan, became the 3rd high ranking intelligence official to swear before Congress that no one from the Trump administration had ever tried to stop (or even slow) the Russia investigation.

Brennan appeared in a hearing before Congress on Tuesday where he said that he did believe that an investigation into the Russia meddling was necessary but that contrary to the reports from the mainstream media, no one from the Trump administration (including Trump himself) had ever tried to stop the Russia investigation.

Adam Schiff: In respect to a number of allegations made recently that the president of his aides may have sought to enlist the help of members the IC [intelligence community] or Director Comey himself to drop the Flynn investigation. Have any members of the IC shared with you their concerns that the president was attempting to enlist the help of people within the intelligence community to drop the Flynn investigation?

John Brennan: No sir.

Adam Schiff: Are you aware of any efforts the president has made to enlist the help of the intelligence community to push back on a narrative involving the collusion issue?

John Brennan: I am unaware of it.

This is the same testimony that current acting Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe gave before the Senate in the wake of James Comey’s firing. When Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) if anyone had tried to impede the Russia investigation, McCabe told him that no one had tried to stop the investigation and if they had they wouldn’t have been successful.

SEN. MARCO RUBIO: Without going into the specifics of any individual investigation, I think the American people want to know has the dismissal of Mr. Comey in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped, or negatively impacted any of the work, any investigation, or any ongoing projects at the Federal Bureau of Investigations?

ACTING FBI DIRECTOR MCCABE: As you know, Senator, the work the men and women of the FBI continues despite any changes in circumstance, any decisions, so there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date. Simply put, sir, you cannot stop the men and women of the FBI from doing the right thing, protecting the American people, and upholding the Constitution.

And it’s actually the very same testimony that former FBI Director James Comey swore before the Senate himself in early March.

HIRONO: So if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?

COMEY: In theory yes.

HIRONO: Has it happened?

COMEY: Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose. I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience.

This is just another part of that “fake news” media narrative that holds no water. Sure, all of the key players have denied ever being pressured by the Trump administration, but that doesn’t mean that the media won’t keep pretending that it happened. Yet another example of the media’s biased and unhinged attempts to undermine the Trump administration.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
