Former CIA Director John Brennan has told Congress that President Trump did not pressure the FBI to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn.
His testimony before the House on Tuesday completely blows the left-wing narrative that Trump unduly pressured the intelligence community to halt their investigations into possible Russia collusion.
When Dem. Rep. Adam Schiff asked Brennan if Trump or any of his aides had pressured the FBI to drop the investigation, Brennan’s response was not anticipated:
Adam Schiff: “With respect to the allegations made recently that the President or his aides may have sought to enlist the member of the IC or Director Comey himself to drop the Flynn investigation, uh have any members of the IC shared with you their concerns that the President was attempting to enlist the help of the people in the intelligence community to drop the Flynn investigation?”
Brennan: “No, sir.”
Adam Schiff: “Are you aware of any efforts the President has made who enlist the support of the intelligence community personnel to push back on a narrative involving the collusion issue that Mr. Rooney was asking about?”
Brennan: “I am unaware of it.”
Former FBI Director, James Comey, also said under oath on May 3rd that the Trump DOJ had not pressured him to halt investigations.
This probably won’t be enough to stop the lying liberal media from continuing with their bogus allegations over Trump-Russia. However, their very own Seth Rich scandal continues to gain momentum so it is understandable why they are desperate to direct attention towards the now debunked Russia accusations.
