It is clear that Brennan likely committed perjury during his Congressional testimony regarding the notorious Steele dossier and he is now being actively investigated by House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes. Then there was this particular lie Brennan told while being grilled by Trey Gowdy. Gowdy asks a rather pointed question of Brennan as he is known for doing, stating – “Did you have evidence of a connection between the Trump campaign and Russian state actors?” Brennan replied: “As I said, Mr. Gowdy, I don’t do evidence.”
Then Brennan was asked by Adam Schiff about the Flynn investigation and replied that President Trump never pressured anyone to have the Flynn investigation dropped.
Adam Schiff: “With respect to the allegations made recently that the President or his aides may have sought to enlist the member of the IC or Director Comey himself to drop the Flynn investigation, uh have any members of the IC shared with you their concerns that the President was attempting to enlist the help of the people in the intelligence community to drop the Flynn investigation?”
Brennan: “No, sir.”
Adam Schiff: “Are you aware of any efforts the President has made who enlist the support of the intelligence community personnel to push back on a narrative involving the collusion issue that Mr. Rooney was asking about?”
Brennan: “I am unaware of it.”
Sperry wrote in February 2018 for RealClear Investigations stating of Brennan’s Congressional testimony:
“In his May 2017 testimony before the intelligence panel, Brennan emphatically denied the dossier factored into the intelligence community’s publicly released conclusion last year that Russia meddled in the 2016 election “to help Trump’s chances of victory.”
Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document (excerpt here), even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign.”
Except, Brennan was directly feeding former President Obama unverified and unsubstantiated dossier information in direct contradiction to his testimony before Congress. Former NSA Director Michael Rogers specifically stated to Congressional investigators that the dossier was, in fact, part of the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) in the Russia investigation.
Sperry goes on to add:
“In a March 5, 2018, letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, Adm. Rogers informed the committee that a two-page summary of the dossier — described as ‘the Christopher Steele information’ — was ‘added’ as an ‘appendix to the ICA draft,’ and that consideration of that appendix was ‘part of the overall ICA review/approval process.’
‘Brennan put some of the dossier material into the PDB [presidential daily briefing] for Obama and described it as coming from a ‘credible source,’ which is how they viewed Steele,’ said the source familiar with the House investigation. ‘But they never corroborated his sources.’”
