John Brennan: President Trumpís Claims of No Collusion Are Hogwash
New York Times ^ | 16 August 2018 | John Butthole

When Alexander Bortnikov, the head of Russia’s internal security service, told me during an early August 2016 phone call that Russia wasn’t interfering in our presidential election, I knew he was lying. Over the previous several years I had grown weary of Mr. Bortnikov’s denials of Russia’s perfidy — about its mistreatment of American diplomats and citizens in Moscow, its repeated failure to adhere to cease-fire agreements in Syria and its paramilitary intervention in eastern Ukraine, to name just a few issues.

When I warned Mr. Bortnikov that Russian interference in our election was intolerable and would roil United States-Russia relations for many years, he denied Russian involvement in any election, in America or elsewhere, with a feigned sincerity that I had heard many times before. President Vladimir Putin of Russia reiterated those denials numerous times over the past two years, often to Donald Trump’s seeming approval.

Russian denials are, in a word, hogwash.

Trump is trolling and baiting this self-righteous, arrogant, traitorous and treasonous CIA, deep-state bastard - and I love it.

By the time Brennan is finished, not a single American will ever trust the CIA again - as it should be.

John Brennan could get a job as a hemorrhoid model.

IF this is true, then VOTER ID is a must now for National Security. And ballots only printed in ENGLISH.

“would roil United States-Russia relations”

In other words, NOTHING would happen and the Obama Admin would continue to do NOTHING about it.

No comment from Gina Haspel? I was hoping she would expose all those involved.

“Russian denials are, in a word, hogwash.”

Except that cannot be extended to Trump denials of collusion, because that is an entirely separate issue from alleged Russian interference. The NY Slimes, knowing this, put a misleading headline over this non-story. It’s innuendo of the worst kind.
