No wonder John Brennan wants Democrats to win so badly on election day. It may mean the difference between freedom and an orange jumpsuit.
A renowned investigative reporter has found out that John Brennan was illegally reading congressional emails when he headed the corrupt CIA. (It was corrupt because he headed it) Brennan was allegedly trying to get a heads up on any whistleblowers inside the government. He would also read congressional emails to find out what they knew and what they were planning to do about it.
Attkisson said: “Maybe you once thought the CIA wasn’t supposed to spy on Americans here in the United States. That concept is so yesteryear.” She points to newly declassified 2014 documents which “reveal the CIA not only intercepted emails of U.S. citizens, but they were emails of the most sensitive kind.”
The disclosures, kept secret until now, are two letters of “congressional notification” from the Intelligence Community inspector general at the time, Charles McCullough. He stated that during “routine counterintelligence monitoring of government computer systems,” the CIA collected emails between congressional staff and the CIA’s head of whistleblowing and source protection.
McCullough was concerned about the “potential compromise to whistleblower confidentiality, and the consequent ‘chilling effect’ that the present [counterintelligence] monitoring system might have on Intelligence Community whistleblowing.”
While the CIA is supposedly restricted to spying on individuals “only for an authorized intelligence purpose” such as when someone is suspected of terrorism, they have also given themselves carte blanche to perform “routine counterintelligence monitoring of government computers.”
“The only reason we know any of this now is thanks to Sen. Chuck Grassley,” Attkisson said. Grassley pursued these “congressional notifications” for years while his staff was being spied on– but both the Obama and Trump administrations have made it exceedingly difficult to get at the information therein. The surveillance information was finally declassified by the new Intelligence Community Inspector General, Michael Atkinson.
