Former CIA director turned far left political commentator John Brennan saw his security clearance finally revoked on Wednesday. Brennan was cited for “lying” and conduct unbecoming for someone who has access to the nation’s secrets. But Brennan isn’t the only one on the list being considered.
Politico also names FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden, former national security adviser Susan Rice, former FBI attorney Lisa Page, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and Bruce Ohr. McCabe and Strzok were fired from the FBI for misconduct.
Bruce Ohr has been demoted from assistant deputy attorney general and may not have a job much longer. He was a crucial part of the Russian investigation, even though his wife worked for Fusion GPS. In addition to Bruce Ohr’s connections to Fusion GPS, Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya was also a client of Fusion GPS when she set up her meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. in Trump tower. Nothing happened at the meeting, but it has been cited by liberals as Russian collusion. Some speculate that entire meeting was a Fusion GPS setup.
It’s possible these late moves are more than just cleaning house. Many of these individuals have a very suspect past when it comes to the botched Clinton investigation and the unnecessary Trump investigation. We have seen plenty of evidence from Strzok’s texts of collusion with the Obama administration to stop Trump. And when you add in the Fusion GPS connections, everyone seems to be in bed with everyone else. In some cases, literally.
The Inspector General’s office continues it’s investigation into these individuals, but Horowitz’s conclusions have thus far been suspect. His decision that Strzok’s texts didn’t show bias gives me little hope for the future of that investigation.
