Wait, who’s obsessed here, Fusion Nat?
NEW: Sources believe John Brennan is a focus of the Barr/Durham probe, and Trump has called privately for investigating Brennan—putting his personal "obsession" w/the former CIA director on a collision course with the Justice Department's inquiry. https://t.co/9B1WPXK68l

The media is just a criminal mob.
Play ball with us, and we’ll do favors for you; but if you ever say a dark word about us, we’ll whack you.
President Donald Trump’s obsession with former CIA director John Brennan could be on a collision course with an ongoing Justice Department probe as Attorney General Bill Barr takes a more hands-on approach to examining the intelligence community’s actions in 2016.
Barr has been meeting with the U.S.’ closest foreign intelligence allies in recent months, making repeated overseas trips as part of an investigation he is overseeing into the origins of the Russia probe and whether any inappropriate “spying” occurred on Trump’s campaign.
As part of that investigation, Barr and John Durham, the federal prosecutor he appointed to conduct it, have been probing a conspiracy theory for which there is little if any evidence, according to several people with knowledge of the matter: that a key player in the Russia probe, a professor named Joseph Mifsud, was actually a Western intelligence asset sent to discredit the Trump campaign — and that the CIA, under Brennan, was somehow involved.
“Somehow” involved, as if this is so convoluted it can’t even be explained!
The emerging focus of the Barr-Durham investigation — the CIA and intelligence community’s work with the FBI on the Russia probe — emphasizes the increasingly blurred lines between politics and law enforcement in the Trump era.
I would say that, based on Johnny Cong over here dialing up Fusion Nat to write this working-the-grand-jury piece, that John Brennan actually does have fears of prosecution.
More: The media is in PROTECT BRENNAN mode, as Deb Heine notes.
They’re very, very upset people are trying to find out whether Misfud works for the Russians… or not.
Didn’t they used to claim we had to do our all to discover that?
Why do they suddenly not want to know about POSSIBLE RUSSIAN ASSET Joseph Mifsud?
Remember when Democrats and the media hated Brennan for hacking Democrat’s Senate computers? Now they are all afraid Trump is going to expose their mass corruption and colluding with foreign governmentS to try and control the outcome of US elections.
