Spygate: Obama Admin Cut Situation Room’s Video Feed During Meetings on Russia Investigation

Breitbart: Comments made by Attorney General William Barr about extraordinary arrangements regarding the original handling of the Russia investigation may take on more significance in light of a previous report showing a high and unusual degree of compartmentalization in the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial intel set up of the Russia probe.

In an interview with Fox News that aired Friday, Barr commented that the intelligence community’s early handling of the Russia investigation may raise questions.  He noted it was first handled at a “very senior level” and then by a “small group.”

Barr stated:

The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level of these departments. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. It was sort of an ad hoc, small group — and most of these people are no longer with the FBI or the CIA or the other agencies involved. I think there’s a misconception out there that we know a lot about what happened. The fact of the matter is, Bob Mueller did not look at the government’s activities.

Deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017, the newspaper detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark.

According to the newspaper, in the summer of 2016, CIA Director John Brennan convened a “secret task force at CIA headquarters composed of several dozen analysts and officers from the CIA, the NSA and the FBI.”

The Post described the unit as so secretive it functioned as a “sealed compartment” hidden even from the rest of the U.S. intelligence community; a unit whose workers were all made to sign additional non-disclosure forms.

The unit reported to top officials, the newspaper documented:

They worked exclusively for two groups of “customers,” officials said. The first was Obama and fewer than 14 senior officials in government. The second was a team of operations specialists at the CIA, NSA and FBI who took direction from the task force on where to aim their subsequent efforts to collect more intelligence on Russia.

The number of Obama administration officials who were allowed access to the Russia intelligence was also highly limited, The Post reported. At first only four senior officials were involved: Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and then-FBI Director James Comey. Their aides were all barred from attending the initial meetings, The Post stated.  more here

  1. Yeaaah and that’s why 0bama didn’t know anything about spying on Trump and his campaign. Because they cut the cameras. LOL!
    He had to hear it from the NY Times, like everybody else.
    Pfft!

  2. Seeing how the Democrats are not going to let this go-let me see if I get their position correct: Trump tried to cover up the fact that he did not collude with the Russians- ok you all run with that.

    Meanwhile it is time for the Republicans to put up or shut up. For starters- go for the low hanging fruit or in this case the Hillary pinata and go at it with a baseball bat with spikes; I’m talking Escape from New York type baseball bat. She is guilty of the top secret e-mails. Perp walk her and put everyone on trail from Comey on down except for the first one to squeal they get a deal- but the squealer has to be high enough to get the rest. THEN, and while that is happening, start asking questions about how Nancy Pelosi got so rich as a public servant. Start asking for her taxes for the past 30 years.

    Those that want to live by the sword… I’m talking epic levels. The Republicans need to grow a pair. If there are any that won’t get on board ask them “what do they have on you?” then answer them this way “oh, well, you better call your governor and have him make sure your replacement is someone who will stand up to the up coming purge of corruption because IT ENDS NOW!”

  3. John Brennan deserves to have a double-barrelled 12 gauge shoved up his ass and both triggers pulled at once. What a traitorous cunt. And everyone who knew or partook in this attempted coup deserve monster prison sentences. Motherfuckers.

  4. “…in the summer of 2016, CIA Director John Brennan convened a “secret task force at CIA headquarters composed of several dozen analysts and officers from the CIA, the NSA and the FBI.”
    Don’t you see? This whole thing is Brennan’s creation, and this is when and how it started.

  5. Obama is a traitor. We know that. This is just more confirmation.

    For his crimes, force him to perform oral sex on a woman. That’ll teach him.

    Then hang him.

  6. I wonder why anyone ever expected this cheap street hustler to be anything other than a criminal while in office. A punk with a grudge against this country wasn’t the brightest choice.

  7. It’s become extremely difficult for me, to believe any of these traitorous bastards, are going to end up behind bars. I agree with Perry, it’s going to be up to the public to overthrow this cabal of sewage.

  8. I can tell how this is going to play out already.

    Barr will catch reveal the shenanigans and the media will completely ignore it, if they can, and try to change the subject. (expect some black person to get harrassed by the police and the media will decide that’s more important than a deep state coup of our gov’t.

    And if they get lucky, the economy will turn down and we’ll hear nonstop that ‘how can you waste time on this when people are dying, dying i tell you!

    One way or the other there is going to be a giant change the subject.
