Obama CIA Chief John Brennan, who hates Donald Trump, made a “secret” visit to Moscow in March 2016. Yeah, that’s Moscow, Russia.
In June, just three months later, former British spy Christopher Steele who was on the payroll of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that was hired by Hillary Clinton, produced his first anti-Trump memo.
From The Donald Reddit:
Former Senate Minority leader Harry Reid, according to a report, thought that Brennan was using him to be able to publicize pretend links between Trump campaign workers and the Russian government.
Russian news organizations reported the visit at the time.
The Moscow Times reported on the trip on March 28,2016:
John Brennan, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), made a secret visit to Moscow in March, according to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov. The visit, he said, had nothing to do with Russia’s decision two weeks ago to begin withdrawing from Syria.
“It’s no secret that Brennan was here,” Syromolotov was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying Monday. “But he didn’t visit the Foreign Ministry. I know for sure that he met with the Federal Security Service (the successor agency to the Soviet KGB), and someone else.”
It wasn’t clear why Brennan visited Moscow, but the trip appears to have coincided with President Vladimir Putin’s surprise March 14 announcement that Russia’s combat operation in Syria was ending, and Moscow would soon withdraw a portion of its forces from the country after conducting 167 air strikes.
Liberals will say that Brennan went to Moscow because at around the same time Putin announced that Russia’s combat operation in Syria was ending. If so, then why didn’t Brennan tell anyone he was going? We learned about it from Russian news sources.
