Ex-CIA Chief John Brennan is 'Main Focus' of DOJ Investigation, Report Reveals
Anti-Trump intelligence veteran at center of Durham's probe into Russia hoax origins
Anti-Trump former CIA Director John Brennan is at the center of the Justice Department's investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion hoax, according to reports.
Former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova confirmed Monday that his sources close to the DOJ's criminal investigation of the origins of the Obama administration's Trump-Russia counter-intelligence probe have named Brennan.
According to DiGenova, investigators have now zeroed in on the ex-CIA chief.
DiGenova says a number of former intelligence officers already have testified about the production of the famous January 2017 intelligence assessment on Russian intervention in the 2016 election.
The document is described as "phony," DiGenova said.
"It was a constructed document," the former prosecutor told Boston talk-radio host Howie Carr.
"It was not in fact an assessment of anything," DiGenova continued.
"And that is very interesting because they are looking at what Brennan did and what he asked other people to do in terms of that and some other things as well."
According to a report by News Thud, Brennan is now the "main focus" of the DOJ investigation being led by "bulldog" U.S. Attorney John Durham.
"So apparently Mr. Durham has not been deterred by the virus," DiGenova added.
Durham previously was reported to be examing Brennan's handling of a secret source said to be close to the Kremlin and whether the CIA director was pushing for a biased result, according to WND.
Carr said Durham is "clearly looking at abuse of power."
"In other words, were the resources of the CIA illegally used to undertake domestic terrorist investigations?
"Were the resources of the CIA used to illegally create a plot to either falsely lead FBI officials into a scheme or to conspire with FBI officials to deny certain people their civil rights," Carr said.
Hear the interview:
The Wall Street Journal previously reported Durham has been interviewing CIA officials at the National Intelligence Council, a center within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
The council oversaw the collaboration between the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency in compiling and finalizing the 2017 assessment.
Last week, Attorney General William Barr revealed that Durham's investigation has uncovered evidence "far more troubling" than what could be explained away as "mistakes or sloppiness."
AG Barr shed new light on Durham’s review of the Russia investigation during an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham last Thursday night.
Barr told Ingraham that Connecticut's top federal prosecutor is unearthing extremely concerning evidence and vows to prosecute those involved if laws were broken and a case can be made.
“My own view is that the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes or sloppiness,” Barr said during the segment of the interview.
"There is something far more troubling here, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it.
"And if people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted."
