A dispute erupts over whether Brennan, Comey pushed Steele dossier, as DOJ probe into misconduct begins.
Finger-pointing between high-level government officials begins over who pushed the unverified dossier weeks before President Trump’s inauguration.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that the FBI/DOJ attempted to influence, meddle and interfere with the election outcome. Did they did not do it just on their own? Who ordered them to? Now that is the big question.
Amazing—James Comey says that in 2016, John Brennan insisted on including the dossier in their IC assessment. But Brennan says: no no, COMEY wanted to use the dossier.
They know the truth is coming. And now they’re all throwing each other under the bus.https://t.co/lComh1CO0d

A high-level dispute over which senior government officials pushed the unverified Steele dossier amid efforts to surveil the Trump campaign has broken out into the open again, after it emerged that Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if the FBI and DOJ’s actions were “lawful and appropriate.”
Sources familiar with the records told Fox News that a late-2016 email chain indicated then-FBI Director James Comey told bureau subordinates that then-CIA Director John Brennan insisted the dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference, known as the ICA.
Fox News was told that the email chain – not yet public — referred to the dossier as “crown material,” but it was not clear why this apparent code was used. On Tuesday night, former GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy said on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” that “Comey has a better argument than Brennan, based on what I’ve seen.” More
I fear the public clash between the ex-FBI boss and the ex-CIA boss over who shoveled the most BS into the FISA application targeting the Trump campaign could erode trust in govt.

Obama weaponized our intelligence agencies to spy on his political enemies and American citizens. Brennan has been working overtime to cover that fact up.
It’s been known for two years and only talked about on conservative news shows but now it’s out in the open. Amazingly the MSM still isn’t interested?
Do they now think it’s their job to cover for Obama’s corrupt administration, to make excuses? No surprise really, we’ve known that journalism died when Obama was elected. When they stopped pretending they were non-partisan.
Success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan. Funny now that the Dossier and the entire Russia hoax has been debunked, Comey and Brennan are tripping over themselves to deny they promoted it.
