Obamagate’s Origin in John Brennan
by

In recent days, articles identifying John Brennan as the father of Obamagate have appeared. Their headlines include: “Obama loyalist Brennan drove FBI to begin investigating Trump associates last summer” and “Brennan Info Drove FBI To Launch Probe of Trump Associates.”

These articles, while welcome, should come as no surprise to readers of TAS. In March, I wrote an article titled “All Roads Lead Back to Brennan: The former CIA director wanted Trumpworld investigated.” I followed that up with a series on Brennan: “How John Brennan and Some Brits Tried to Tip the Election to Hillary”; “How John Brennan and Baltic Spies Teamed Up to Defeat Trump”; “Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded with Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump.”

The latter article caught the eye of Donald Trump Jr. and he tweeted it out to his million-plus followers. That sent the left into paroxysms of rage. In a piece titled “Donald Trump Jr. Caught Tweeting Fake News & The Internet Let Him Have It,” the blog Bipartisan Report huffed:

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to follow in his father’s footsteps by tweeting out utter crap–a sure sign that he’s his father’s son. Trump Jr. tweeted a link to an article from The American Spectator, writing: “Interesting, I doubt the MSM will even look: ‘Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded with Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump.’”

But now the mainstream media concedes Brennan’s role as the progenitor of the investigation into Trumpworld. The disagreement has shifted away from Brennan’s role in launching Obama’s espionage to questions related to the propriety of it: conservatives condemn Brennan’s spying; liberals celebrate it. While the mainstream media’s headlines may not be as bold as the ones cited above, their reporting makes clear Brennan was the official driving the “intelligence” that drove the investigation.

The press showered Brennan in reverential coverage last week, casting him as a patriot of the highest order. What a joke. He is a political hack and anti-American radical to his core — a supporter of the American Communist Party during the Cold War and now a tool of Islamic propagandists during the present conflict.

When Russia was communist, Brennan supported it. He voted for Gus Hall in the 1970s, after all. He only soured on Russia after it moved away from communism and towards Christianity. Brennan, who refused to take his oath as CIA director on the Bible, hates Putin for rejecting the secularism of the liberal Western elite. He hated Trumpworld for its planned ripping up of Obama’s “reset” with the Islamic world. He also wanted to continue as CIA director under Hillary. All of these hatreds and desires led him to conduct political espionage against Trump.

A future Edward Gibbon will surely appreciate the spectacular lie at the heart of Obamagate: that those crying loudest about a “government trying to tip the election” were corruptly presiding over the only one that actually was.
