Former DCIA Brennan, he who voted Communist in 1976, has been testifying about "Russian influence" in the House today.

At about 31:00 here, Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) starts to build his question, mentioning the "Russian playbook," how Russians try to build relationships, especially with influential Americans, and how that's one of the things the CIA is looking out for.

Wenstrup continued: "So I'm just trying to understand process here a little bit, what sets up a red flag, what type of conversation do you hear that says, hmm, maybe we need to take a little bit further look into this, or refer it on. 

Wenstrup then harkened back to the previous election when a hot mic picked up That Exchange between President Obama and President Medvedev. The congressman related the two famous lines.

I really, really do not want to waste a lot of time on Donald Trump's Saudi Arabian visit; however, for the record, which is still important, it was a nightmare.

The images could not have been more ghastly.

The substance could not have been more repulsive.

The nation-to-nation exchange could not have been more shameful: Yet another American president, a decade and a half after 9/11, lying to himself and the entire world to declare that Islam is wonderful, it's just extremism that's a mortal threat, in exchange for hundreds of millions of Saudi petrodollars in arms deals. The $100 million pledged by Saudi Arabia and the UAE to "empower women entrepreneurs" through a World Bank "initiative" (slush fund?) Ivanka Trump is associated with was particularly ugly. It turned the president's daughter into a pitchwoman for these very nations whose Islamic laws and culture recognize women as chattel. How they must have rolled on the tent floor after the pathetic American delegation was en route to Israel, a nation Saudi Arabia does not recognize.

CONTINUOUSLY UPDATED:

June 14, 2016: The Washington Post reports "Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee." On what did the paper base this claim? The Post cites "committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach." 

These "security experts" are with CrowdStrike, a private cyber security firm hired and paid by the DNC.

While reading the following chronology, it is important to bear in mind that the FBI has never examined the DNC computer network because the DNC prohibited the FBI from doing so. Also, that the FBI, under former Director Comey, not to mention former President Obama and the "Intelligence Community," thought this was perfectly ok.

In the June 14,...

Flipping back the pages of my proverbial notepad I find a fair amount about Robert Mueller and his Bush-to-Obama tenure at the FBI.

Despite the rose petals bestrewing his path back to DC as special counsel, it was not a pretty thing. Summing up -- as Patrick Poole began here in 2012, as former FBI special agent John Guandolo does here --  Mueller's FBI tenure should be remembered in large part for having been one long "Muslim outreach" to combat so-called Islamophobia, one long purge of Islamo-realism; and literally so, as when Mueller's FBI purged lecturers and training materials for their supposed offensiveness to Muslims...

To Gotcha or Not to Gotcha, that is never the question for the Washington Post -- or, for that matter, those "current and former U.S. officials" hiding in anonymity to leak what they allege are specifics of an Oval Office meeting between President Trump and the Russian foreign minister and ambassador.

On second thought, I must qualify: To Gotcha-Trump or Not to Gotcha-Trump is never the Post's question. This is not across-the-board journalism, it's information warfare. If that were not the case, to take a few examples, Post readers might well have have been treated to some of these headlines:  

"Obama reveals secret intelligence to Iranians"

Or, going back a few years:

"Clinton reveals secret intelligence to Chinese"
