brad johnson here we are it is May 22nd

0:00:03.449,0:00:10.740
I think 2019 and a really interesting

0:00:07.379,0:00:13.679
story drifted by in my river of emails I

0:00:10.740,0:00:16.859
think the original source I saw it from

0:00:13.679,0:00:19.050
was on pamela geller site which I’m sure

0:00:16.859,0:00:23.779
linked through to a news a news site

0:00:19.050,0:00:26.640
that said that six different leaders of

0:00:23.779,0:00:29.279
Italian intelligence had been arrested

0:00:26.640,0:00:31.980
so we’re not talking about the usual

0:00:29.279,0:00:34.410
kind of stuff you see on Hannity like no

0:00:31.980,0:00:36.600
disrespect to entity or Fox whatsoever

0:00:34.410,0:00:39.899
but there’s an endless stream of insider

0:00:36.600,0:00:43.110
baseball about you know how we’re gonna

0:00:39.899,0:00:46.379
start restoring the reality after the

0:00:43.110,0:00:49.079
more crazy investigation now but here’s

0:00:46.379,0:00:51.289
some real news six guys who were head of

0:00:49.079,0:00:54.719
Italian intelligence were arrested

0:00:51.289,0:00:56.850
somehow connected to being complicit in

0:00:54.719,0:00:58.770
the in the attempted coup against

0:00:56.850,0:01:00.600
President Trump so maybe I’m jumping the

0:00:58.770,0:01:01.890
gun to call it an attempted coup but I

0:01:00.600,0:01:04.500
think a lot of this figure that’s what

0:01:01.890,0:01:07.320
it was so I was really hoping you could

0:01:04.500,0:01:09.030
shed a bit of insight on because it

0:01:07.320,0:01:12.780
looks to me like this is the first real

0:01:09.030,0:01:14.790
thing please go ahead I yet now this

0:01:12.780,0:01:18.900
links to a lot of stuff but very quickly

0:01:14.790,0:01:21.000
so you had the the three services the

0:01:18.900,0:01:23.700
three main services out of Italy which

0:01:21.000,0:01:26.369
are the it’s a federal law enforcement

0:01:23.700,0:01:29.220
dis and it’s then the information and

0:01:26.369,0:01:32.220
security services external and then

0:01:29.220,0:01:34.650
separately internal so look at it as the

0:01:32.220,0:01:38.729
sort of FBI law enforcement which would

0:01:34.650,0:01:40.680
be the FBI Criminal Division the FBI CI

0:01:38.729,0:01:42.960
counterintelligence division which is

0:01:40.680,0:01:45.750
their intelligence division and the CIA

0:01:42.960,0:01:47.700
so it’s sort of those three things in

0:01:45.750,0:01:50.369
their system the to criminal and

0:01:47.700,0:01:52.770
intelligence parts of the FBI are split

0:01:50.369,0:01:54.689
into two two separate agencies and then

0:01:52.770,0:01:58.579
the CIA so the number one and two of all

0:01:54.689,0:02:00.840
those three agencies got fired and

0:01:58.579,0:02:05.189
subsequently picked up so they’ve gotten

0:02:00.840,0:02:07.110
real trouble now how did this happen you

0:02:05.189,0:02:09.360
know that’s that’s got to be a question

0:02:07.110,0:02:11.110
in everybody’s mind now this links back

0:02:09.360,0:02:13.100
there

0:02:11.110,0:02:15.080
most of this is all public information

0:02:13.100,0:02:16.730
but it does lead back to these links and

0:02:15.080,0:02:18.590
connections and stuff feedback and

0:02:16.730,0:02:21.920
aren’t being talked about very much if F

0:02:18.590,0:02:23.540
oh and by the way I will say you and I

0:02:21.920,0:02:25.610
and these interviews have been talking

0:02:23.540,0:02:29.930
about the intelligence program that

0:02:25.610,0:02:31.520
created this raw show scandal that where

0:02:29.930,0:02:33.530
they were trying to implicate President

0:02:31.520,0:02:34.520
Trump and have working for the Russian

0:02:33.530,0:02:36.170
so that you and I have been talking

0:02:34.520,0:02:38.120
about this and linking it back and

0:02:36.170,0:02:40.010
pointing at John Brennan and so on for

0:02:38.120,0:02:42.200
well over a year now at this point and

0:02:40.010,0:02:43.910
have been these programs these

0:02:42.200,0:02:46.100
recordings but all of your viewers are

0:02:43.910,0:02:47.840
are some of the best informed people out

0:02:46.100,0:02:50.750
there because this has been show prep

0:02:47.840,0:02:53.210
and I see our interviews end up on the

0:02:50.750,0:02:56.060
national news programs all the time word

0:02:53.210,0:02:58.220
for word in many cases and using the

0:02:56.060,0:03:01.220
same documents that we refer to here and

0:02:58.220,0:03:02.450
so on but now so keep an eye out in the

0:03:01.220,0:03:04.370
next three four five days and you’ll

0:03:02.450,0:03:07.550
probably see this interview replayed by

0:03:04.370,0:03:10.040
somebody else on national news so these

0:03:07.550,0:03:12.260
these six guys out of Italy get sacked

0:03:10.040,0:03:16.760
and in trouble legal trouble now back in

0:03:12.260,0:03:18.380
Italy now how did that happen now what

0:03:16.760,0:03:20.000
what has happened in the background is

0:03:18.380,0:03:23.300
President Trump called the Prime

0:03:20.000,0:03:26.390
Minister of Italy and said look there’s

0:03:23.300,0:03:29.420
this case of George papadopolis where

0:03:26.390,0:03:32.810
this guy named myth sued who is a 59

0:03:29.420,0:03:34.700
year old professor in Malta Italian

0:03:32.810,0:03:36.560
citizen connected to all of these

0:03:34.700,0:03:38.720
intelligence services they all know him

0:03:36.560,0:03:41.510
and have worked with him was part of

0:03:38.720,0:03:43.280
this operation that kicked off the

0:03:41.510,0:03:46.670
Russia investigation he was one of the

0:03:43.280,0:03:50.620
main players in trying to involve George

0:03:46.670,0:03:53.630
papadopolis in this this this mass of

0:03:50.620,0:03:56.450
trying to blame trunk for colluding with

0:03:53.630,0:03:58.820
the Russians so key player in there who

0:03:56.450,0:04:00.620
then suddenly disappears is off the

0:03:58.820,0:04:01.850
record so you’ve got president calling

0:04:00.620,0:04:04.070
up Italy going you know

0:04:01.850,0:04:06.290
whiskey-tango-foxtrot who is this guy

0:04:04.070,0:04:07.700
what is going on here what are his

0:04:06.290,0:04:09.830
connections back to the Italian

0:04:07.700,0:04:12.110
government and the Prime Minister as a

0:04:09.830,0:04:16.190
result takes a look at it fires these

0:04:12.110,0:04:18.590
six guys so now that has not come out

0:04:16.190,0:04:20.840
public the background of it but this is

0:04:18.590,0:04:25.100
what led up to the firing of those six

0:04:20.840,0:04:27.620
so I would say just extremely unlikely

0:04:25.100,0:04:30.560
for this to be anything other than those

0:04:27.620,0:04:33.139
six having been involved in what now is

0:04:30.560,0:04:36.410
clearly a very large international

0:04:33.139,0:04:39.139
effort to implicate Trump as having

0:04:36.410,0:04:41.540
colluded with the Russians now back to

0:04:39.139,0:04:43.850
Papadopoulos again now a couple of

0:04:41.540,0:04:46.250
things on that now Papadopoulos was

0:04:43.850,0:04:48.850
clearly targeted by the FBI as we know

0:04:46.250,0:04:53.419
as part of this investigation his

0:04:48.850,0:04:58.180
then-girlfriend fiancee an Italian was

0:04:53.419,0:05:01.370
visiting him the FBI across her and

0:04:58.180,0:05:04.310
tries to tell convince her that her

0:05:01.370,0:05:06.560
boyfriend Papadopoulos is some evil spy

0:05:04.310,0:05:08.780
for the Russians doing awful stuff and

0:05:06.560,0:05:10.760
and needed to be you know arrested and

0:05:08.780,0:05:12.950
put in jail and she they needed her

0:05:10.760,0:05:16.340
cooperation and they wanted her to wear

0:05:12.950,0:05:18.380
a wire to talk to her fiance boyfriend

0:05:16.340,0:05:21.050
Papadopoulos and get all the all the

0:05:18.380,0:05:22.310
scoop on it so several aspects of that

0:05:21.050,0:05:25.130
that are interesting first of all

0:05:22.310,0:05:26.780
they’re clearly out there really beating

0:05:25.130,0:05:28.850
the bush you know to go to the guy’s

0:05:26.780,0:05:30.800
girlfriend now this isn’t like some

0:05:28.850,0:05:32.570
hardened criminal and as a girlfriend

0:05:30.800,0:05:34.190
the girl for knows he’s guilty of doing

0:05:32.570,0:05:36.530
all this stuff this is some guy who

0:05:34.190,0:05:37.789
never had anything to do with any of

0:05:36.530,0:05:40.430
that he’d been traveled around and

0:05:37.789,0:05:43.010
worked in London and and spent some time

0:05:40.430,0:05:44.960
in Italy and they’d been working in the

0:05:43.010,0:05:47.840
States and so on was an international

0:05:44.960,0:05:50.270
you know businessman type guy not some

0:05:47.840,0:05:52.430
you know there was no reason to for her

0:05:50.270,0:05:53.960
to look at him and go yeah okay yeah

0:05:52.430,0:05:56.240
he’s criminal we need to get him and

0:05:53.960,0:05:58.250
turn against him so it’s really you know

0:05:56.240,0:06:00.380
that’s not your typical type of cases

0:05:58.250,0:06:04.270
the FBI would sort of use this tactic on

0:06:00.380,0:06:07.370
so unusual from the get-go but it shows

0:06:04.270,0:06:08.900
also they’re very high interest in

0:06:07.370,0:06:10.700
getting recordings now what you do with

0:06:08.900,0:06:13.039
the recording you create a transcript

0:06:10.700,0:06:14.539
now what Papadopoulos did and he came

0:06:13.039,0:06:16.520
out in an interview just the other day

0:06:14.539,0:06:18.740
with the Ingram angle it’s a television

0:06:16.520,0:06:21.110
program the Laura Ingraham does and in

0:06:18.740,0:06:22.580
an interview with her he made the

0:06:21.110,0:06:25.430
comment that he’d been questioned a

0:06:22.580,0:06:28.280
couple of times by congressmen asking if

0:06:25.430,0:06:30.229
he had been shown transcripts of these

0:06:28.280,0:06:31.980
conversations with Massoud this

0:06:30.229,0:06:36.240
professor that in

0:06:31.980,0:06:40.200
implicated him and this Russian scandal

0:06:36.240,0:06:41.940
with again targeting Trump and so he

0:06:40.200,0:06:43.050
said no no never seen a transcript but

0:06:41.940,0:06:44.550
of course what that’s led him to

0:06:43.050,0:06:46.200
conclude based on the fact that they

0:06:44.550,0:06:48.150
were trying to get a recording and

0:06:46.200,0:06:50.010
consequently a transcript from his

0:06:48.150,0:06:51.600
girlfriend that they had been clearly

0:06:50.010,0:06:53.370
doing it with these other guys and the

0:06:51.600,0:06:56.430
implication there is that MIT suit did

0:06:53.370,0:06:57.990
one now that makes perfect sense if

0:06:56.430,0:07:00.030
again Occam’s razor you take the

0:06:57.990,0:07:02.900
simplest explanation that fits all the

0:07:00.030,0:07:06.780
details and it looks like the Italian

0:07:02.900,0:07:08.970
services jointly cooperated in this

0:07:06.780,0:07:12.060
effort to frame Trump essentially and

0:07:08.970,0:07:14.310
have this myth sued where a listening

0:07:12.060,0:07:17.550
device as he was talking to Papadopoulos

0:07:14.310,0:07:20.250
and a wire is everyone likes to call so

0:07:17.550,0:07:23.340
a he apparently then was wearing this

0:07:20.250,0:07:25.440
wire and so Congress then now has

0:07:23.340,0:07:27.000
getting these documents back out of FBI

0:07:25.440,0:07:30.000
that would have been shared with the

0:07:27.000,0:07:33.300
Italians back to the CIA and FBI here on

0:07:30.000,0:07:35.960
our end and those documents transcripts

0:07:33.300,0:07:38.490
have been men supplied to Congress now

0:07:35.960,0:07:40.380
Papadopoulos concludes this based on the

0:07:38.490,0:07:42.330
fact that they were clearly using this

0:07:40.380,0:07:44.190
technique because he knows for a fact

0:07:42.330,0:07:48.870
through his girlfriend is now life

0:07:44.190,0:07:52.710
either married and meadows and another

0:07:48.870,0:07:55.770
congressman whose name escapes me

0:07:52.710,0:07:57.870
John Ratcliffe John Radcliffe also asked

0:07:55.770,0:08:01.080
if if if Papa Thomas had seen

0:07:57.870,0:08:02.880
transcripts so and which he has not so

0:08:01.080,0:08:04.860
but his conclusion out of all of that is

0:08:02.880,0:08:08.130
that Congress has these transcripts and

0:08:04.860,0:08:12.390
they have read them now that is absolute

0:08:08.130,0:08:15.540
that is a bombshell and so and it makes

0:08:12.390,0:08:17.550
perfect sense because these what appears

0:08:15.540,0:08:19.170
to have happened the scenario that fits

0:08:17.550,0:08:21.540
the circumstances the facts that we’ve

0:08:19.170,0:08:23.760
just related is that Masood World wire

0:08:21.540,0:08:25.860
talked to Papadopoulos transcripts

0:08:23.760,0:08:28.290
recreated by the Italian service this

0:08:25.860,0:08:31.830
was an operation run by the Italians at

0:08:28.290,0:08:34.050
the behest of us of the FBI and CIA CIA

0:08:31.830,0:08:36.570
primarily in this case would be the lead

0:08:34.050,0:08:37.830
but both were probably involved and that

0:08:36.570,0:08:41.310
these transcripts were then brought back

0:08:37.830,0:08:45.060
to the FBI to process this case to build

0:08:41.310,0:08:49.530
the case on against Trump for Trump

0:08:45.060,0:08:51.780
now again to support that John Brennan

0:08:49.530,0:08:54.060
has come out in the last couple of days

0:08:51.780,0:08:57.300
and done a number of interviews where he

0:08:54.060,0:08:59.370
talks about how well predicated his word

0:08:57.300,0:09:02.280
how well predicated in this

0:08:59.370,0:09:04.830
investigation was and this is precisely

0:09:02.280,0:09:07.140
the type of evidence that a guy like

0:09:04.830,0:09:09.630
John Brennan would have obtained to

0:09:07.140,0:09:11.760
support the case to predicate the

0:09:09.630,0:09:14.450
opening this investigation against Trump

0:09:11.760,0:09:17.130
and therefore going to get the

0:09:14.450,0:09:19.320
permission from the FISA Court to the

0:09:17.130,0:09:21.750
warrant from the FISA Court to start to

0:09:19.320,0:09:23.280
target the Trump campaign so all of

0:09:21.750,0:09:24.960
these pieces fit together perfectly and

0:09:23.280,0:09:26.820
it goes into exactly what I’ve been

0:09:24.960,0:09:28.590
telling everybody now there’s enough

0:09:26.820,0:09:30.300
information becoming public you start to

0:09:28.590,0:09:33.330
see this stuff I’ve been looking at and

0:09:30.300,0:09:36.090
why I conclude that all roads constantly

0:09:33.330,0:09:38.820
lead back to John Brennan now another

0:09:36.090,0:09:43.320
aspect of this that that again fits

0:09:38.820,0:09:46.140
beautifully the AG bar the Attorney

0:09:43.320,0:09:48.090
General bar has come out and said part

0:09:46.140,0:09:50.250
of this investigation why he’s looking

0:09:48.090,0:09:51.990
into what the government was doing to

0:09:50.250,0:09:54.180
make sure that nobody had their thumb on

0:09:51.990,0:09:56.840
the scale of justice and was trying to

0:09:54.180,0:09:59.640
manipulate this case for their political

0:09:56.840,0:10:02.340
motives one of the things he opened up

0:09:59.640,0:10:04.800
about that he was looking at was current

0:10:02.340,0:10:07.200
director of the CIA Jena ASP

0:10:04.800,0:10:10.080
now current director of the CIA Jena

0:10:07.200,0:10:12.990
Haspel is it was has always been a close

0:10:10.080,0:10:15.720
associate of John Brennan’s and again as

0:10:12.990,0:10:17.460
we’ve discussed was probably the chief

0:10:15.720,0:10:19.170
of station in London

0:10:17.460,0:10:22.830
at the time all this was being put

0:10:19.170,0:10:25.260
together so in a few I hate to interrupt

0:10:22.830,0:10:26.940
you there but you actually have brought

0:10:25.260,0:10:30.480
me to the quite a next question I wanted

0:10:26.940,0:10:32.640
to ask which was the mercenaries steel

0:10:30.480,0:10:35.190
and I call him that because he clearly

0:10:32.640,0:10:38.610
was an intelligence and scare quotes

0:10:35.190,0:10:42.210
agent for hire was there a connection

0:10:38.610,0:10:46.220
between him and UK intelligence and if

0:10:42.210,0:10:50.220
so how’s that special relationship going

0:10:46.220,0:10:52.410
well was there a connection a hundred

0:10:50.220,0:10:55.200
percent yes I mean that’s where this guy

0:10:52.410,0:10:57.340
came out of was originally from this is

0:10:55.200,0:10:59.770
somebody that was shared at some time

0:10:57.340,0:11:02.680
back with the FBI who also used him as

0:10:59.770,0:11:06.010
some type of informant also this guy had

0:11:02.680,0:11:08.800
connections to former perhaps current

0:11:06.010,0:11:12.400
but certainly former KGB guys the

0:11:08.800,0:11:16.660
Russian intelligence SVR so you know he

0:11:12.400,0:11:18.610
was basically a a guy kind of trying to

0:11:16.660,0:11:20.680
play these connections back and forth or

0:11:18.610,0:11:22.060
whatever I mean my guess I don’t know

0:11:20.680,0:11:24.640
this for a fact but whatever he would

0:11:22.060,0:11:26.050
learn about the CIA he would try to pawn

0:11:24.640,0:11:27.279
to the Russians whatever learned about

0:11:26.050,0:11:29.700
the Russians even pawn to these other

0:11:27.279,0:11:35.050
guys and so he was sort of a go-to guy

0:11:29.700,0:11:36.250
you know an info hoe if you will and was

0:11:35.050,0:11:38.560
just selling what he could sell to

0:11:36.250,0:11:41.200
anybody to make money and so had this

0:11:38.560,0:11:44.140
opportunity a great contract to come up

0:11:41.200,0:11:46.510
with information against Trump that he

0:11:44.140,0:11:48.160
was supposed to have received out of

0:11:46.510,0:11:50.890
Russia needed to have something to do

0:11:48.160,0:11:53.400
with Russia because that was the goal or

0:11:50.890,0:11:56.440
right to link Trump President Trump to

0:11:53.400,0:12:00.279
colluding with Russia so he went to his

0:11:56.440,0:12:02.740
KGB contacts SVR Russian intelligence

0:12:00.279,0:12:04.390
contacts to obtain this information and

0:12:02.740,0:12:07.450
something I’ve talked about before but

0:12:04.390,0:12:09.130
that’s it that’s a guy steal then would

0:12:07.450,0:12:10.960
have told them what he wants and why I

0:12:09.130,0:12:12.940
mean or to some degree why and he

0:12:10.960,0:12:14.530
probably paid them for for this stuff

0:12:12.940,0:12:16.540
because he had a huge contract and would

0:12:14.530,0:12:19.390
have subcontracted out information and

0:12:16.540,0:12:22.420
goes to the KGB guys I need damaging

0:12:19.390,0:12:25.720
information on Trump so if anything that

0:12:22.420,0:12:28.780
is actual true honest-to-god collusion

0:12:25.720,0:12:33.250
where this guy as an intermediary for

0:12:28.780,0:12:35.500
the Hillary Clinton campaign paid by

0:12:33.250,0:12:38.140
them through a series of lawyers then

0:12:35.500,0:12:42.040
goes to Russian intelligence and says I

0:12:38.140,0:12:43.690
need dirt on Trump now no proof and we

0:12:42.040,0:12:46.600
probably will never have any but those

0:12:43.690,0:12:48.160
guys it doesn’t work the same I mean you

0:12:46.600,0:12:50.020
know they’re famous comments about once

0:12:48.160,0:12:51.760
you’re in the SVR or once you’re in the

0:12:50.020,0:12:55.060
Russian intelligence a KGB you never

0:12:51.760,0:12:56.410
leave well and there’s truth to that to

0:12:55.060,0:12:58.810
some degree because those guys all

0:12:56.410,0:13:00.790
remain in contact so there’s absolutely

0:12:58.810,0:13:03.220
zero reason to believe that once those

0:13:00.790,0:13:04.990
guys were working on gathering dirt on

0:13:03.220,0:13:07.750
Trump that they didn’t go to their

0:13:04.990,0:13:09.190
active duty guys and say hey I’m doing

0:13:07.750,0:13:10.010
this I’m getting paid I’ll share a

0:13:09.190,0:13:12.260
little bit with you

0:13:10.010,0:13:14.180
model vodka whatever tell me what you

0:13:12.260,0:13:17.260
got on trunk that’s dirt on Trump so

0:13:14.180,0:13:20.330
that gave Russian intelligence a

0:13:17.260,0:13:22.600
pipeline to then feed whatever they

0:13:20.330,0:13:24.770
wanted disinformation misinformation

0:13:22.600,0:13:26.300
truth whatever they thought they had

0:13:24.770,0:13:28.340
there was no truth involved in this but

0:13:26.300,0:13:30.440
in whatever information they wanted to

0:13:28.340,0:13:34.130
put into a pipeline to give to their

0:13:30.440,0:13:35.570
retired SVR KGB guys to them give to

0:13:34.130,0:13:38.690
steal that would then be fed back into

0:13:35.570,0:13:41.740
the if yeah they had an absolute

0:13:38.690,0:13:44.090
pipeline I mean that is in fact

0:13:41.740,0:13:45.860
cooperation between the Hillary Clinton

0:13:44.090,0:13:47.960
a long chain of events but it was

0:13:45.860,0:13:50.960
between Hillary Clinton and her campaign

0:13:47.960,0:13:53.210
and Russian intelligence and that’s the

0:13:50.960,0:13:54.680
only collusion that anyone knows up to

0:13:53.210,0:13:57.920
this point that seems to be actually

0:13:54.680,0:14:00.530
true back actual now she may not have

0:13:57.920,0:14:02.570
known that that was that the chain of

0:14:00.530,0:14:03.740
connecting events that led to this

0:14:02.570,0:14:05.660
getting information and wouldn’t have

0:14:03.740,0:14:07.460
cared I can see where she would not have

0:14:05.660,0:14:09.800
known and it wouldn’t have mattered to

0:14:07.460,0:14:11.720
her but nevertheless she paid for it to

0:14:09.800,0:14:13.970
happen and and understood they were

0:14:11.720,0:14:16.010
getting dirt on on Trump we’re trying to

0:14:13.970,0:14:17.810
get dirt on trove so that’s that’s that

0:14:16.010,0:14:20.600
chain of connection of how those things

0:14:17.810,0:14:22.490
are all linked now steel gets the

0:14:20.600,0:14:25.730
information then feeds it back into the

0:14:22.490,0:14:28.820
United States FBI and CIA now as I was I

0:14:25.730,0:14:30.290
was just starting to talk about AG bar

0:14:28.820,0:14:32.840
has said one of the people there being

0:14:30.290,0:14:34.630
that are they’re looking at is the now

0:14:32.840,0:14:37.280
current director of the CIA

0:14:34.630,0:14:40.580
Gina Haskell Gina Haskell being a close

0:14:37.280,0:14:42.920
associate of John Brennan and she was

0:14:40.580,0:14:44.720
handpicked to go to London as chief of

0:14:42.920,0:14:46.910
station so if you put all these pieces

0:14:44.720,0:14:49.400
together now again one of the things

0:14:46.910,0:14:51.590
that that it’s Occam’s razor what is the

0:14:49.400,0:14:54.170
simplest explanation that fits the facts

0:14:51.590,0:14:56.660
that would be who would coordinate all

0:14:54.170,0:14:58.520
of these things now John Brennan would

0:14:56.660,0:15:00.650
have had been able to reach out to the

0:14:58.520,0:15:04.520
senior levels of the three intelligence

0:15:00.650,0:15:06.740
agencies in Italy and famously made

0:15:04.520,0:15:08.540
trips to Italy the reason we know this

0:15:06.740,0:15:11.630
because some of this was publicized on

0:15:08.540,0:15:14.570
another case completely unrelated to it

0:15:11.630,0:15:17.240
but there was a case of a woman who got

0:15:14.570,0:15:19.430
in some trouble left the agency but was

0:15:17.240,0:15:22.100
was I had a sealed indictment against

0:15:19.430,0:15:23.570
her from the Italian

0:15:22.100,0:15:25.490
government from their intelligence

0:15:23.570,0:15:28.760
services because of her involvement in a

0:15:25.490,0:15:31.430
rendition program so we know that during

0:15:28.760,0:15:33.260
this period of time John Brennan was

0:15:31.430,0:15:36.440
over there but refused to help that

0:15:33.260,0:15:37.910
woman and so but what was he talking

0:15:36.440,0:15:40.310
about the Italians now there’s a lot of

0:15:37.910,0:15:41.750
stuff but again it fits the facts during

0:15:40.310,0:15:44.210
that period of time he was dealing

0:15:41.750,0:15:47.000
directly with the Italians all the time

0:15:44.210,0:15:48.890
making personal travel over there and at

0:15:47.000,0:15:51.260
the same time you had Gina Haspel in

0:15:48.890,0:15:53.960
London as chief of station handpicked by

0:15:51.260,0:15:55.850
him who then after she left LAN and came

0:15:53.960,0:15:58.220
in back into the leadership levels and

0:15:55.850,0:16:00.320
was promoted up unfortunately appears by

0:15:58.220,0:16:02.420
my campaign now Secretary of State she

0:16:00.320,0:16:05.140
came in as deputy to Mike and then moved

0:16:02.420,0:16:08.000
up with Mike la

0:16:05.140,0:16:10.370
perfect sense as I recall in one of her

0:16:08.000,0:16:12.290
very very first interviews you talked

0:16:10.370,0:16:14.390
about her as the appointment to the head

0:16:12.290,0:16:15.880
of the CIA and that in fact there was

0:16:14.390,0:16:18.140
trouble down the road

0:16:15.880,0:16:20.150
absolutely this is something I mean I’ve

0:16:18.140,0:16:22.460
been you know pointing all of this out

0:16:20.150,0:16:24.140
I’ve written op eds and have gotten into

0:16:22.460,0:16:26.300
the Washington Times in different places

0:16:24.140,0:16:28.010
these interviews and I’ve been pointing

0:16:26.300,0:16:29.780
out for a year-and-a-half how old this

0:16:28.010,0:16:32.270
is he’s creating problems

0:16:29.780,0:16:35.480
slowly bubbling to the top and where

0:16:32.270,0:16:38.600
Gina Haskell’s loyalties lie and the

0:16:35.480,0:16:42.140
entire leadership of the CIA right now

0:16:38.600,0:16:45.560
as we sit are all john brennan acolytes

0:16:42.140,0:16:48.530
so it’s just as all of this is bubbling

0:16:45.560,0:16:50.180
to the top now in hindsight Gina Hass

0:16:48.530,0:16:53.330
was probably wondering why she didn’t

0:16:50.180,0:16:55.400
retire you know after becoming deputy

0:16:53.330,0:16:58.120
director and getting out because now the

0:16:55.400,0:17:00.680
fact that she is the director of the CIA

0:16:58.120,0:17:02.300
all this stuff is really gonna be late

0:17:00.680,0:17:05.240
at her doorstep and I would not be

0:17:02.300,0:17:06.620
surprised to see her really get into

0:17:05.240,0:17:08.959
some trouble with with this

0:17:06.620,0:17:11.270
investigation that the Attorney General

0:17:08.959,0:17:12.890
bar is running right now that is looking

0:17:11.270,0:17:15.110
at her I mean I just don’t see any way

0:17:12.890,0:17:17.060
around it because these pieces wouldn’t

0:17:15.110,0:17:20.240
have worked this way with Papadopoulos

0:17:17.060,0:17:24.079
the Italian service the Brits the steel

0:17:20.240,0:17:26.300
dossier all of this stopped in this big

0:17:24.079,0:17:27.890
stupid operation they put together and

0:17:26.300,0:17:29.510
it’s one of the things I’ve I’ve pointed

0:17:27.890,0:17:31.700
out about John Brennan if you

0:17:29.510,0:17:33.590
look at this operationally from a from

0:17:31.700,0:17:35.510
from a guy who’s done all of that stuff

0:17:33.590,0:17:38.120
as a you know for decades and really

0:17:35.510,0:17:39.760
knows those things I look at this thing

0:17:38.120,0:17:42.380
as an OP from strict operational

0:17:39.760,0:17:45.890
perspective you know human intelligence

0:17:42.380,0:17:48.200
operations and and if I were you know

0:17:45.890,0:17:48.650
John Brennan’s boss and he came to me

0:17:48.200,0:17:51.080
with this

0:17:48.650,0:17:52.549
this whole convoluted operation about

0:17:51.080,0:17:54.500
who’s gonna go here and get there and do

0:17:52.549,0:17:55.970
this to do all that and put this thing

0:17:54.500,0:17:57.890
together I mean not smacking alongside

0:17:55.970,0:18:00.350
the head this is this is a stupid

0:17:57.890,0:18:02.960
operation but it’s typical of what John

0:18:00.350,0:18:06.049
Brennan would have viewed as brilliant

0:18:02.960,0:18:09.230
he was an analyst failed at the agency

0:18:06.049,0:18:11.030
was sidelined out came back you know was

0:18:09.230,0:18:12.890
an apparatchik and the democratic party

0:18:11.030,0:18:15.169
came back under previous director George

0:18:12.890,0:18:17.510
Tenet tenets as an apparatchik an

0:18:15.169,0:18:20.150
administrative guy and was then rewarded

0:18:17.510,0:18:21.830
for all of this party loyalty and made a

0:18:20.150,0:18:23.750
senior guy and eventually directed the

0:18:21.830,0:18:25.130
CIA so a guy with very little

0:18:23.750,0:18:26.660
operational training very little

0:18:25.130,0:18:28.400
operational experience he was a chief of

0:18:26.660,0:18:30.049
station but in a place where they

0:18:28.400,0:18:31.400
weren’t running tons of operations so

0:18:30.049,0:18:33.710
he’s never really had any background in

0:18:31.400,0:18:36.140
it and if you look back at the time you

0:18:33.710,0:18:38.270
hear all of the Democrats in power

0:18:36.140,0:18:40.520
calling John Brennan the brilliant

0:18:38.270,0:18:42.590
mastermind and don’t screw with him you

0:18:40.520,0:18:44.600
know he’s too smart to mess with and he

0:18:42.590,0:18:47.179
will mess you up and all of that it all

0:18:44.600,0:18:49.520
fits the pieces because they knew that

0:18:47.179,0:18:51.770
this operation this plan had been put

0:18:49.520,0:18:54.410
together by John Brennan in my opinion

0:18:51.770,0:18:56.419
so I think all of this are you’re now

0:18:54.410,0:18:59.480
seeing these different bits and pieces

0:18:56.419,0:19:01.280
of this one operation probably

0:18:59.480,0:19:03.890
masterminded by John Brennan who’s now

0:19:01.280,0:19:06.799
moved to try and bring john clapper in

0:19:03.890,0:19:08.179
with a Jim clapper in with it and the

0:19:06.799,0:19:11.299
former Director of National Security

0:19:08.179,0:19:12.860
Council and protect him because he knows

0:19:11.299,0:19:16.280
that’s kind of the weak link to this and

0:19:12.860,0:19:18.200
what you’ve seen is all of the breakup

0:19:16.280,0:19:19.820
of the former Obama officials starting

0:19:18.200,0:19:22.580
to point fingers at each other

0:19:19.820,0:19:25.490
specifically now you’ve seen Jim Comey

0:19:22.580,0:19:27.350
and John Brennan start to go like this

0:19:25.490,0:19:29.720
at each other and say oh no no no no

0:19:27.350,0:19:32.390
that you know this this steel dossier

0:19:29.720,0:19:35.179
was commies idea to put it in there but

0:19:32.390,0:19:37.909
Comey probably that these emails have

0:19:35.179,0:19:39.710
been leaked that it shows where John

0:19:37.909,0:19:41.680
Brennan was saying that the steel

0:19:39.710,0:19:45.190
dossier was the crown dock

0:19:41.680,0:19:47.380
now in analyst terms that’s very

0:19:45.190,0:19:50.200
specific and important that means this

0:19:47.380,0:19:53.050
is the central document that proves

0:19:50.200,0:19:55.390
everything else and is it and everything

0:19:53.050,0:19:56.770
else leads to it it’s the Nexus of the

0:19:55.390,0:19:58.750
information out there that we’re putting

0:19:56.770,0:20:01.120
forward that’s the crown document so

0:19:58.750,0:20:03.670
Brennan is arguing that this crown

0:20:01.120,0:20:06.340
document the steel dossier has to be

0:20:03.670,0:20:08.440
used and pumped into the system by by

0:20:06.340,0:20:10.750
combing now what’s left unsaid is

0:20:08.440,0:20:12.670
otherwise the plan won’t work right

0:20:10.750,0:20:14.140
that’s the email this is the crown

0:20:12.670,0:20:17.980
document it has to be included

0:20:14.140,0:20:19.660
well why okay why again like I said for

0:20:17.980,0:20:21.310
an intelligence guy reading this this is

0:20:19.660,0:20:23.110
very significant to me it’s clear to me

0:20:21.310,0:20:24.940
that’s why this whole thing has been

0:20:23.110,0:20:26.320
clear from the beginning as as we’ve

0:20:24.940,0:20:29.110
been talking about it over the last year

0:20:26.320,0:20:31.780
and a half because it’s my what I read

0:20:29.110,0:20:33.880
and butter for me and that is it’s it’s

0:20:31.780,0:20:35.440
the unstated portion of this is the

0:20:33.880,0:20:37.510
crown on document has to be included

0:20:35.440,0:20:39.580
because otherwise the plans not going to

0:20:37.510,0:20:41.650
work that has to be included to make all

0:20:39.580,0:20:43.210
those other pieces fit everything that

0:20:41.650,0:20:44.890
the Italians were working on that

0:20:43.210,0:20:47.620
they’ve gotten from the bridge that they

0:20:44.890,0:20:49.210
got from steel the dossier how it’s

0:20:47.620,0:20:51.520
going to be put together get the FISA

0:20:49.210,0:20:53.770
warrant all of this big convoluted plan

0:20:51.520,0:20:55.780
otherwise falls apart that’s a critical

0:20:53.770,0:20:59.650
piece it has to be included and why

0:20:55.780,0:21:02.200
because if once it’s included then the

0:20:59.650,0:21:03.850
president has been briefed the steel

0:21:02.200,0:21:07.690
dossier had been around for at least six

0:21:03.850,0:21:10.420
months and that was you know what had

0:21:07.690,0:21:12.490
been given to the FBI many many months

0:21:10.420,0:21:13.690
before but that nobody was able to do

0:21:12.490,0:21:15.580
anything with it within the news

0:21:13.690,0:21:17.500
organizations because it’s just some

0:21:15.580,0:21:19.600
made up piece of paper you know I could

0:21:17.500,0:21:21.940
sit down and write up you know steel

0:21:19.600,0:21:23.230
dossier part two and hand it out but you

0:21:21.940,0:21:25.660
know it’s not news or anything that

0:21:23.230,0:21:28.090
anyone can do anything with until it’s

0:21:25.660,0:21:30.370
briefed to the president once James

0:21:28.090,0:21:32.530
Comey briefed it to the president he

0:21:30.370,0:21:35.350
calls and these transcripts have come

0:21:32.530,0:21:38.080
out of the messages of come out he calls

0:21:35.350,0:21:40.570
Jim clapper Jim clapper goes to the

0:21:38.080,0:21:41.830
press and says okay this is the steel

0:21:40.570,0:21:44.110
dossier has been briefed to the

0:21:41.830,0:21:46.180
president and boom all of its public and

0:21:44.110,0:21:49.660
everything it’s on its way and as John

0:21:46.180,0:21:52.300
Brennan says then it’s predicated

0:21:49.660,0:21:55.930
so that’s this whole thing and fighting

0:21:52.300,0:21:59.160
all these roads everything always lead

0:21:55.930,0:22:01.600
back John Graunt so just to clarify

0:21:59.160,0:22:03.130
James Comey it’s the guy that dresses

0:22:01.600,0:22:05.590
like the curtains at the White House is

0:22:03.130,0:22:07.000
that right yeah yeah he was one that

0:22:05.590,0:22:09.760
stands in the back of the curtains in

0:22:07.000,0:22:11.740
was his biz his big criticism of a

0:22:09.760,0:22:14.200
president Trampas that presidents

0:22:11.740,0:22:16.180
Trump’s Trump’s tie was too long which

0:22:14.200,0:22:17.860
you know and sometimes he does wear that

0:22:16.180,0:22:19.960
tight little long I’ll have to I have to

0:22:17.860,0:22:21.670
give Co me at least half credit on that

0:22:19.960,0:22:24.040
one but on the other hand you know so

0:22:21.670,0:22:26.710
freakin what it’s you know it’s not

0:22:24.040,0:22:28.330
criminal to to even not wear a tie at

0:22:26.710,0:22:29.650
all you know I have one on right now and

0:22:28.330,0:22:33.520
mine’s not too long it’s the right

0:22:29.650,0:22:35.290
length so I just wanted a fact check

0:22:33.520,0:22:37.960
that I mean I thought that was an

0:22:35.290,0:22:40.710
extraordinary story that the director is

0:22:37.960,0:22:42.970
a director of the FBI head of the FBI

0:22:40.710,0:22:45.070
would deliberately dress like the

0:22:42.970,0:22:47.770
curtains delay us in order not to be

0:22:45.070,0:22:49.600
noticed because I guess he was afraid of

0:22:47.770,0:22:51.010
being picked off for all the stuff he

0:22:49.600,0:22:53.590
was doing I don’t know but it was a

0:22:51.010,0:22:56.530
mighty strange a mighty strange thing to

0:22:53.590,0:22:59.020
do I thought call me is a very very odd

0:22:56.530,0:23:01.180
guy and it’s come out back in a 2003

0:22:59.020,0:23:04.900
interview something that I find

0:23:01.180,0:23:07.750
fascinating is that he had made a

0:23:04.900,0:23:09.820
comment that he was actually a communist

0:23:07.750,0:23:11.860
now I don’t know that he went into

0:23:09.820,0:23:13.480
tremendous detail on this interview but

0:23:11.860,0:23:15.160
was saying that he was part of a like a

0:23:13.480,0:23:17.260
member of the Communist Party voting for

0:23:15.160,0:23:18.930
the communists back in 2000 you know at

0:23:17.260,0:23:21.670
some time prior to 2003

0:23:18.930,0:23:23.950
apparently in his youth which is

0:23:21.670,0:23:25.870
interesting that that is something that

0:23:23.950,0:23:29.110
he shared in common with John Brennan

0:23:25.870,0:23:31.450
who also publicly has commented there

0:23:29.110,0:23:36.160
stated that he voted for Gus Hall the

0:23:31.450,0:23:37.900
Communist Party member or a party the

0:23:36.160,0:23:39.730
guy running for president for the

0:23:37.900,0:23:41.890
Communist Party of the United States so

0:23:39.730,0:23:43.900
you buy and so he voted communist at

0:23:41.890,0:23:44.470
some point which for me if you’re voting

0:23:43.900,0:23:46.000
Tonia

0:23:44.470,0:23:48.390
you know you’re hip so facto you’re a

0:23:46.000,0:23:51.010
communist so a very interesting

0:23:48.390,0:23:53.320
coincidence between those two that that

0:23:51.010,0:23:56.590
I find particularly suspicious I think

0:23:53.320,0:23:59.450
they’re leaning towards what we’ve kind

0:23:56.590,0:24:01.669
of it’s drifted away as a name

0:23:59.450,0:24:03.110
the the socialist international is still

0:24:01.669,0:24:04.820
something out there that’s big and I

0:24:03.110,0:24:07.309
think these guys all would have viewed

0:24:04.820,0:24:09.590
themselves as fellow travelers the

0:24:07.309,0:24:11.750
socialist international which leads us

0:24:09.590,0:24:14.509
back to the Italians and the Russians

0:24:11.750,0:24:16.399
and certain people within the British

0:24:14.509,0:24:18.470
government which is strongly socialist

0:24:16.399,0:24:21.470
and in many areas of the of the

0:24:18.470,0:24:22.700
government back in the UK now so it

0:24:21.470,0:24:24.769
would have been something that again

0:24:22.700,0:24:27.019
within that context it makes perfect

0:24:24.769,0:24:28.820
sense that these guys were doing this

0:24:27.019,0:24:30.289
sort of stuff and being involved because

0:24:28.820,0:24:31.370
they would have like I said they would

0:24:30.289,0:24:32.990
have viewed themselves as fellow

0:24:31.370,0:24:34.519
travelers with all these other people

0:24:32.990,0:24:36.409
that were helping him in this and it

0:24:34.519,0:24:38.179
would have had shared goals and they

0:24:36.409,0:24:40.340
would have all been you know the

0:24:38.179,0:24:44.570
socialist international is very anti

0:24:40.340,0:24:46.179
President Trump which you know it’s just

0:24:44.570,0:24:48.289
it’s they would have been likely

0:24:46.179,0:24:50.929
collaborators for this type of operation

0:24:48.289,0:24:53.840
so it’s really you know it’s a very

0:24:50.929,0:24:56.419
complex huge mass of moving parts and

0:24:53.840,0:24:59.629
stuff but it’s starting to fray at the

0:24:56.419,0:25:01.730
ages edges rather and you’re going to

0:24:59.629,0:25:03.350
see a break in the case for this sort of

0:25:01.730,0:25:05.750
stuff it’s just it’s going to happen

0:25:03.350,0:25:08.690
because these guys I’ve said this many

0:25:05.750,0:25:10.580
times but you know James coming would do

0:25:08.690,0:25:12.679
poorly in jail on John Brennan would do

0:25:10.580,0:25:14.870
poorly in jail Jim clapper all of these

0:25:12.679,0:25:16.879
people in the in the in the former DOJ

0:25:14.870,0:25:20.059
Justice FBI these are not the guys that

0:25:16.879,0:25:21.769
can go to jail and then and and do their

0:25:20.059,0:25:24.289
time peacefully it’s just not gonna work

0:25:21.769,0:25:27.190
so they recognize and they’re not built

0:25:24.289,0:25:29.779
to stand up to that sort of thing so

0:25:27.190,0:25:31.639
they’re going to be very interested in

0:25:29.779,0:25:34.159
minimizing any jail time or any legal

0:25:31.639,0:25:36.320
problems they have plus I mean the

0:25:34.159,0:25:38.179
expense of those sorts of things so it’s

0:25:36.320,0:25:40.240
very interesting how this is unfolding

0:25:38.179,0:25:42.950
you’re going to see Attorney General bar

0:25:40.240,0:25:44.779
Donna’s eyes and crosses T’s and just go

0:25:42.950,0:25:46.370
down the but where were these

0:25:44.779,0:25:49.850
misinformation freaks

0:25:46.370,0:25:51.889
start to see that that happened now

0:25:49.850,0:25:55.039
these transcripts that are apparently

0:25:51.889,0:25:56.659
out there on the with Papadopoulos and

0:25:55.039,0:25:58.730
all of that it’s it’s there’s there’s

0:25:56.659,0:26:01.429
paperwork on it so it’s a big deal it’s

0:25:58.730,0:26:03.799
interesting well yeah I think we should

0:26:01.429,0:26:06.049
we should pick this up again as some

0:26:03.799,0:26:09.789
other real events happen I mean I

0:26:06.049,0:26:12.669
definitely think it’s worth watching

0:26:09.789,0:26:14.590
both Hannity and Tucker as they kind of

0:26:12.669,0:26:17.739
interview all these different key

0:26:14.590,0:26:19.269
Republicans about the minutiae of what

0:26:17.739,0:26:21.129
is being discussed and what documents

0:26:19.269,0:26:22.720
are Declassified I mean if you want to

0:26:21.129,0:26:24.970
have a really solid understanding but

0:26:22.720,0:26:27.700
from from where I sit which is outside

0:26:24.970,0:26:30.129
the United States I like to see actual

0:26:27.700,0:26:35.289
things taking place which means that

0:26:30.129,0:26:37.899
there is finally going to be a real look

0:26:35.289,0:26:40.659
with consequences at what these people

0:26:37.899,0:26:42.970
are doing and this these these Italian

0:26:40.659,0:26:45.519
arrests look to me like it’s the first

0:26:42.970,0:26:47.200
domino to fall in terms of act actions

0:26:45.519,0:26:49.269
and thank you very much for that

0:26:47.200,0:26:52.919
analysis of it let’s do this again

0:26:49.269,0:26:55.330
as soon as more stuff actually happens

0:26:52.919,0:26:57.399
there will be stuff happening soon so

0:26:55.330,0:26:59.999
yeah we’ll be back at this fairly fairly

0:26:57.399,0:26:59.999
near future
