CIA Veterans Petrified As Barr / Durham Investigation Closes In On John Brennan

It seems that lately, the CIA is only working to help the Deep State. They forget that they should protect the President elected by the people!

It seems that the time is running out for Democrats and CIA veterans that committed a reason, they are terrified of Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia hoax so they’re lashing out.

Georgia Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr and attacked him and John Durham.

Democrats are running scared from Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham who is investigating the origins of the Russia investigation.

This has apparently ruffled the feathers of those currently in the CIA, including CIA Director Gina Haspel,, whop was appointed by President Donald Trump, Politico reported.


Intelligence community veterans say the Durham probe could force Haspel to choose between protecting her agency from Trump’s wrath and bowing to Barr’s wishes; they point to FBI chief Chris Wray, who has found himself at odds with the president in recent weeks over a watchdog report about the bureau’s conduct in the Russia probe.

And they say the Barr-Durham probe represents overreach by an attorney general who seems to have already made up his mind and is bent on imposing his own skeptical view of the Russia investigation on the intelligence community.

Haspel, a veteran intelligence officer known for her fierce loyalty to the CIA and acute political antennae, has rarely made headlines during her 19-month tenure atop the nation’s top spy agency, turning her focus inward on building morale and boosting recruitment. That strategy has kept her out of Trump’s sights and largely protected the CIA’s more than 20,000 employees from the kinds of political attacks that have hobbled the FBI.

When it comes to Durham, Haspel is likely “confident there has been no serious wrongdoing, and will therefore find a means to cooperate” with the investigation, said John Sipher, a 28-year CIA veteran.

“It is unprecedented and inappropriate to do this via Justice department prosecutors who will tend to apply the standards of a courtroom to the more nuanced, and often more challenging world of intelligence analysis,” former CIA acting director and deputy director John McLaughlin said.

“I find this troubling and I suspect many inside the intelligence community do as well,” Sipher said, insisting that the review of Brennan’s records “was initiated and sold in a partisan manner and this news only highlights that concern.”

You may know McLaughlin from his famous speech in which he thanked God for the existence of the Deep State.

“Thank God for the deep state,” McLaughlin he said. “I mean I think everyone has seen this progression of diplomats and intelligence officers and White House people trooping up to Capitol Hill right now and saying these are people who are doing their duty or responding to a higher call.

And Sipher? You may recognize him from his Twitter account in which he cheers on the impeachment of the president.

“If Republican politicians are too cowardly to admit the obvious, maybe we should rethink the primary process. It just encourages extremists,” he said in one tweet.

“A lot of the outraged fake-victim Trump supporters are calling me seditious today. Must be a new word for them,” he said in another.

If they are being honest, they have nothing to worry about getting in trouble for. They have to investigate to see if Brennan was up to no good.
