'Brennan and Clapper claim they told James Comey NOT to use the golden showers dossier to get eavesdropping warrant on Trump campaign aide
[MAIL] Former top Obama administration officials are at odds over which of them may have pushed the infamous golden showers dossier be included in an assessment of Russian election interference ‐ and existing email records hold the key to who is correct.
A former Republican congressman is touting the available digital evidence, as a new investigatory climate focuses on those involved in decisions to look at the Trump campaign in 2016 amid Russian election interference.
Attorney General William Barr has appointed a top prosecutor to examine the origins of the Russia probe ‐ the latest of several efforts to 'investigate the investigators.'
Once again, former FBI Director James Comey is a central figure to the matter. Fox News reports that in a late-2016 email chain, Comey tells subordinates that the dossier should be included in an intelligence community assessment of Russian interference ‐ and that it was at the direction of former CIA Director John Brennan.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller hunted down the details of the Kremlin-backed interference campaign and included it in his report, and the DOJ issued indictments.
But a former CIA official says it was Comey who wanted the dossier included in an Intelligence Community Assessment ‐ not former CIA director John Brennan or former National Security Agency director James Clapper.
