Brennan and CIA link to the Hillary Campaign
Research from Wiki | May 16, 2018 | vanity

Here is the Russian Collusion "A" Team who coordinated Brennan, Hillary, and the CIA.

Michael Joseph Morell is a former American intelligence analyst. He served as the deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency as well as its acting director twice, first in 2011 and then from 2012 to 2013.

From July 1, 2011, to September 6, 2011, he served his first stint as acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, replacing Leon Panetta who was named as Secretary of Defense. On November 9, 2012, Morell once again became acting director after the resignation of David Petraeus, following a sex scandal. President Obama chose John Brennan as Director; he was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on March 5, 2013.

In an August 2016 op-ed for The New York Times, Morell endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Stating that he was registered with neither the Democratic nor Republican parties, and had always been silent about his political preferences, Morell stated that Donald Trump was "not only unqualified for the job, but he may well pose a threat to our national security."

Since November 2013, he has been a senior counselor to Beacon Global Strategies LLC a Washington, DC-based strategic advisory firm founded by Jeremy Bash, Philippe Reines, and Andrew Shapiro in 2013. Most of the founders of the firm have ties to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to the firm's website, Beacon Global Strategies specializes in matters of international policy, foreign affairs, national defense, cyber, intelligence, and homeland security.

In December 2016, Morell suggested the interference of Russia in the 2016 United States presidential election was "the political equivalent of 9/11." He added that President Obama should retaliate imminently, in spite of president-elect Donald Trump's doubts about the allegations of Russian influence. In March 2017, Morell said: "On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire at all. There's no little campfire, there's no little candle, there's no spark. And there's a lot of people looking for it."

Jeremy Bash was the only Obama Administration official to have served as Chief of Staff in two national security departments or agencies: first as Chief of Staff to the Director of the CIA (2009–2011) and most recently as Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Defense (2011–2013).

As a senior advisor to Leon Panetta in both roles, Bash worked on a number of key initiatives, including the creation of a new defense strategy, formation of two defense budgets, counterterrorism operations, a new cyber strategy, and a range of sensitive intelligence operations.

From 2001 to 2004, Bash was in private law practice with the firm O’Melveny & Myers in their Washington, D.C. office. His practice focused on congressional investigations, regulatory matters, and litigation. He then served as chief minority counsel on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the U.S. House of Representatives and as an aide to California Representative Jane Harman, the committee's top Democrat.

During the protracted Florida recount in 2000, Bash was on the team of Democratic Party lawyers trying to win the state for standard-bearer Al Gore.

Bash has a wide array of friends to turn to for private counsel, including the news business. From 1998 through 2007, he was married to Dana (Schwartz) Bash, a CNN producer and congressional correspondent.

An even more valuable friend could be federal judge Leonie Brinkema, for whom Bash clerked after Harvard Law.

Sitting on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Brinkema has been deeply involved in some of the most vexing cases involving U.S. intelligence, including the prosecutions of 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui. When she asked about CIA videotapes showing the interrogation of al Qaeda operative Abu Zubaydah, the government denied their existence. Later,the CIA admitted over 90 videotapes had been destroyed.

Andrew Shapiro is the former and longest serving Senate confirmed United States Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs (2009–2013). During the presidential transition of Barack Obama, Shapiro was a member of the Obama-Biden Department of Defense Agency Review Team, and during the 2008 presidential election, a member of Hillary Clinton's campaign, advising on foreign affairs. Before being confirmed as Assistant Secretary, Mr. Shapiro served as a Senior Advisor to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Prior to joining the State Department with the Secretary, he served from 2001-2009 as Senator Clinton’s Senior Defense and Foreign Policy Advisor.

Philippe I. Reines joined the Department of State as a Senior Advisor to Hillary Clinton when she became United States Secretary of State in January 2009, and in 2010 was promoted to the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications.

Beginning in July 2002 Reines served as press secretary for Hillary Rodham Clinton, during her term as New York senator. Over the next several years he became an increasingly trusted adviser to Clinton, and a key adviser on Iraq issues.

In 2003, Reines helped orchestrate the media campaign and seven-month book tour that accompanied the release of Living History, Senator Clinton's bestselling memoir of her time in the White House. As the primary point of contact between Senator Clinton's official office and the national press corps, Reines served as one of Senator Clinton's primary spokesmen, and was responsible for many of her interviews and media appearances.

When Clinton took up her post as Secretary of State, in January 2009, Reines was appointed as her senior advisor. By 2010 he had been named Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications.

A scathing piece by Politico in March 2009 highlighted Reines's responsibility for one of Clinton's early gaffes as Secretary of State – an erroneous Russian translation of the word "Reset" on a gag button presented to Clinton's Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov.

In July 2009, Reines struck a deal with journalist Marc Ambinder to provide an advance copy of a Hillary Clinton speech to Ambinder in exchange for positive reporting on Clinton.

In its December 2009 profile of Hillary Clinton, Vogue magazine described Reines as Clinton's "Michael Clayton-esque image man and fixer." In March 2010, The Washington Post's WhoRunsGov, a site offering user-contributed political profiles, moderated by an editorial team, included a profile of Reines as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, in its "Power 25: Press" series;[citation needed] and in July 2010, Politico included Reines in their "50 Politicos to Watch" list, categorizing him as a "fixer".

I would wager that these are the key players and links between Hillary, Brennan, Obama, and the CIA.

Based upon a review of the profiles, they likely were a part of the Uranium One approval.

Missed this part on Andrew J. Shapiro:

While leading the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Mr. Shapiro undertook the first major reform of export control efforts in twenty years. During his tenure, he announced the largest U.S. government foreign military sales (FMS) package in history and presided over the processing of a record number of United States Munitions List export licenses. He also managed more than $6 billion in security assistance funds and drove the development of the innovative Global Security Contingency Fund.

Before being confirmed as Assistant Secretary, Mr. Shapiro served as a Senior Advisor to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Prior to joining the State Department with the Secretary, he served from 2001-2009 as Senator Clinton’s Senior Defense and Foreign Policy Advisor.

He also served as a member of the Obama-Biden Department of Defense Agency Review Transition Team before shifting to Secretary of State Clinton’s confirmation and transition team once she was officially named. During the 2000 Presidential Election Campaign, Mr. Shapiro served on the Gore-Lieberman campaign as the Briefing Book Director for Vice Presidential Candidate Joseph I. Lieberman. After Election Day, he served as an attorney with the Gore/Lieberman Recount Committee during the post-election litigation in Florida.

Previously, Mr. Shapiro was counsel to the Justice Department’s International Competition Policy Advisory Committee, and was an associate at the Washington, DC law firm Covington & Burling.

Sobering, isn’t it?

This IS the Deep State cabal of democrat operators, DC lawyers, DC bureaucrat offices, and re-hiring ex-bureaucrats back into the consultant industry, which gives them credit and the resume to go higher in the bureaucracy next go-round.

And through it all, they serve to the press corpse as the “expert opinion” presented as “unbiased and honest” - all the while disparaging the Trump decision or the Trump appointee and spokesperson!

Its time for a Roman-style “decimation” in the CIA and FBI

Cut their budget. Fire 10% of all staff, randomly.

Make them collectively responsible for the corruption of their agencies. A lesson needs to be taught to future coup planner

Not trying to win your challenge, just noticed this bit about Brennan from Wikipedia.

I've long noticed that control of Washington DC seems to be a sort of Criminal enterprise collusion between people from New York and Chicago.

Brennan is the son of Irish immigrants from Roscommon, Republic of Ireland. He was born in North Bergen, New Jersey.[10] He attended the Immaculate Heart of Mary Elementary School, and graduated from Saint Joseph of the Palisades High School in West New York, New Jersey before enrolling at Fordham University in New York City.[6]

What you seldom see in deep state control are people from "flyover country."

I've been working on a theory that this Cabal has been going on since the 1860s. My observations on this point greatly irritate some people.

...“Since the press can play such an influential role in determining the perceptions of the masses, I am in favor of some degree of government censorship,” Brennan wrote. “Inflamatory [sic] articles can provoke mass opposition and possible violence, especially in developing political systems.”...

When Comrade John Brennen's US presidential candidate, Communist Party leader Gus Hall, failed in 1976, he implemented plan-B.

Comrade Jimmy Carter's CIA hired him, in spite of them knowing of his support for the the Communist Party in the last prior presidential election.

His plan met the ultimate success, when Comrade Obama made him head of the CIA.

Of cause he did everything a devoted comrade could do for Comrade Hillary.

If your head weren't so far up your ... you'd realize for Manhattanites, New Jersey is "flyover country."

Whatever else you can say about the guy, as the son of Irish immigrants and a graduate of Fordham, he certainly wasn't born into America's ruling elite.

I will admit most of the "ruling elite" go to places like Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, or Yale and such.

And yes, I am aware of the animosity between Jerseyites and New Yorkers.

But let's just say i'm not surprised that Brennan isn't from some place like Gary Indiana or something.
