Reports show Chuck Todd, presenter of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” said on Sunday that the special counsel’s report on the Russia inquiry’s beginnings demonstrates the necessity for an investigation similar to the Church Committee in the 1970s, which examined the government’s intelligence operations.
Todd stated that it was understandable, if you just read conservative media, for the Durham report to seem like a bombshell and devastating and for the inquiry to seem like an obscenity and a soft coup. Although the previous president, Donald Trump, anticipated that Durham would unearth the crime of the century, the study did not propose any broad changes to FBI guidelines for wiretaps, and Durham didn’t send a single individual to prison.
He went on to remark that the FBI had no reason to be proud of Durham’s findings.
Trust in the FBI is vanishing rapidly. It seems like now might be a good time to form a formal Church Committee. Such as when it became abundantly evident that J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI was no longer aiding the American people. It’s possible that this is one of those times.
According to a report, US intelligence agencies gained access to alleged Russian intelligence analysis in July 2016 that claimed US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton authorized a plan aimed at stirring up scandals against candidate Republican nominee Donald Trump by binding him to Putin and the Russians’ alleged hacking of the Democrat National Committee’s computers.
The report claims, based on handwritten notes from then-CIA Director John Brennan, that he briefed senior national security administrators and former President Obama on the intelligence, which included the allegation that on January 26, 2016, Hillary Clinton approved a plan from one of her foreign affairs advisers to discredit Donald Trump by asserting interference by Russian security services.
Obama, Vice President Biden, and at least two other high-ranking Administration officials, the FBI Director, and the Attorney General, among others, were present at this meeting.
