The Deep State conspiracy to impeach Donald Trump kicked off with one leak.
It set in motion a series of events that culminated with Robert Mueller being appointed special counsel.
But now the leaker has been indentified and you’ll be speechless when you find out who it is.
Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released a report that found no evidence of Russian collusion.
But that was not the biggest bombshell in the report.
The report alleged that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was the Deep State operative who leaked the infamous Christopher Steele dossier and that it was used in high-level briefings to CNN.
The existence of the dossier was known for months, but since it was unverified, the media needed a hook to report on it.
Comey briefing Trump on its existence was the trigger the press needed to run the story.
Republicans also allege Clapper lied to Congress about these leaks.
The Federalist reports:
“In one of the findings within the 253-page report, the House intelligence committee wrote that Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months later.
“Clapper flatly denied ‘discussing[ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists,’” the committee found.
When asked directly whether he had ever discussed the dossier with any journalists, Clapper replied that he had not, according to a transcript of the proceedings:
- ROONEY: Did you discuss the dossier or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists?MR. CLAPPER: No.
The former DNI later changed his story after he was confronted specifically about his communications with Jake Tapper of CNN.
“Clapper subsequently acknowledged discussing the ‘dossier with CNN journalist Jake Tapper,’ and admitted that he might have spoken with other journalists about the same topic,” the report continued. “Clapper’s discussion with Tapper took place in early January 2017, around the time IC leaders briefed President Obama and President-elect Trump, on ‘the Christopher Steele information,’ a two-page summary of which was ‘enclosed in’ the highly-classified version of the ICA,” or intelligence community assessment.
The briefing of Trump by U.S. intelligence chiefs was held on January 6. CNN published its story on the briefing, based on anonymous leaks from “two national security officials,” on January 10. BuzzFeed published the full dossier, which was jointly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, minutes after the CNN story was published.”
Briefing Trump on the dossier was a set up.
Comey undertook this course of action so the briefing could be leaked to the press and the media would have the news hook necessary to run stories about the fake news document.
And now Americans know Clapper was a ringleader in this conspiracy.
The Russia investigation was nothing more than the Obama administration using fake news and disinformation to frame the incoming President and undo the results of the 2016 election.
It is the greatest attack on Democracy in American history.
