"Crossfire Hurricane the melodramatic code name for the FBI/CIA spy operation on candidate Trump and his early presidency was run for the FBI by then-FBI Director James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, Special Agent Peter Strzok, and others.
Then-CIA director John Brennan ran it for the CIA. Brennan had to have help, but who was it? A lot of evidence points to the CIAs then-chief of station in London in 2016-2017, and now the Director of Central Intelligence, Gina Haspel.
President Trump claimed that the FBI and CIAs spying on his campaign and early presidency was treason. Attorney General William Barr said that, legally, it wasnt.
Barr is correct. But note well that he didnt say that crimes other than treason werent committed. On Friday, Barr said that since he became attorney general he had been asking why the counter-intelligence investigation was begun and hasnt yet gotten a satisfactory answer.
The criminal investigation being conducted for Barr by U.S. Attorney John Durham is aimed at the intelligence community. As I wrote last week Trumps recent executive order, which requires the intelligence agencies to cooperate with Barr and gives Barr the power to declassify anything he chooses, was probably necessitated by stonewalling by the CIA and the NSA that Durham had already encountered.
There is every reason for the CIA to stonewall. Its current director Haspel must have played a major role in conducting the CIA/FBI spy op on Trump.
One result of last weeks column was that one of my intelligence sources, a longtime veteran of the U.S. intelligence community, reappeared after about a year of silence. This person reminded me that he/she tried unsuccessfully to warn the White House against Haspels nomination to be DCI because of her longstanding close ties to Obamas CIA chief, John Brennan.

VJ’s sock puppet?
WHO did they report to ??<P.
I surely hope these nuggets are being passed along to Barr’s office, under the guise of being “a friend of the Court”. If they already have it, fine and dandy. No harm, no foul. Plus, it lets his office know there’s a LOT of concerned people out here watching their every move.
This is the first I’ve heard that Haspel is a bad player for the DS. It’s very discouraging to know that she’s weaseled her way into Trump’s good graces.
Hmmm, let's just think about that.
Could it be...
The jug-eared Kenyan?
That moron couldn’t run a wiener roast.
“A lot of evidence points to the CIAs then-chief of station in London in 2016-2017, and now the Director of Central Intelligence, Gina Haspel.”
I still don’t know who hired Craig Livingstone.
Iranian born Valerie Jarrett.
Who did she report to?
The wiretap was illegal; actually, a wiretap on any citizen is illegal without "probable cause".
The fact that this wiretap was politically motivated and could be used as political 'blackmail'
raises the seriousness of the offense of involvement of all the intelligence agencies.
The CIA is known to have influenced and been involved with other international elections
and unrestrained, and unsupervised, why would we deny their involvement in domestic operations.
I believe that this raises the severity of this offense to the level of political treason,
while not meeting the true definition of treason.
Thanks for posting this article. Barr is doing the right thing. Getting to the origins of Crossfire Hurricane is the right approach. Its like placing an explosive charge under the weakest point of a structure.
I think its the key to unraveling the entire plot.
“a wiretap on any citizen is illegal without “probable cause”
That is a true statement, the term “probable cause” is becoming a moving target to suit whatever excuse is warranted when needed to execute the illegal activity and make it plausible under “the law” that morphs.
The release of information is going to turn on Trump’s willingness to force the issue personally. The AG can demand, but the intelligence community will delay, dissemble and refuse. It will take Trump personally not only ordering the release, but firing key resisters. President Trump has ordered immediate declassifications and releases before and then it doesn’t happen. The Deep State will try and run out the clock on him.
