The ongoing Durham investigation is causing seismic rumbles throughout D.C. corridors these days as a number of high-ranking government officials, both past and present, brace for impact.
The latest is longtime D.C. swamper and current CIA Director, Gina Haspel.
Read on to learn more.
CIA Director Gina Haspel is the latest Intelligence official to reportedly be dragged into John Durham’s investigation of the Russia probe. On Friday, Politico reported Haspel may have information on former CIA Director John Brennan, who served under the Obama administration.
That information could help Durham learn whether the CIA used unauthorized surveillance on 2016 Trump campaign officials.
Haspel has a controversial history of protecting the agency from political scrutiny and has rarely made public statements about ongoing intelligence matters.
“Over the past year, our leadership team has taken steps to improve CIA’s ability to tackle the many challenges we face, and our efforts are beginning to pay off,” she stated. “We’ve devoted more time, money and creativity to our effort against some of our nation’s toughest adversaries.”
Haspel was the head of the CIA’s London bureau in 2016, when suspected informant Joseph Mifsud allegedly told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos about Russia obtaining Hillary Clinton’s emails. She was reportedly briefed on the matter, but referred it to the FBI.
(NOTE: This puts Haspel directly in the mix of what was going on before, during, and directly after, the alleged illegal Obama government Spygate mess. Durham is likely pushing hard for Haspel’s cooperation in order to wall in former CIA Director, John Brennan, who has long been considered a central figure in the Spygate scandal. And if and when Durham has Brennan clearly in his sights, it becomes a matter of linking Brennan’s actions to both Valerie Jarrett and President Obama – and THAT is what has D.C. Democrats and a handful of globalist Republicans so concerned right now.)
