GOP Senators demand CIA Director Gina Haspel turn over docs on 2016 Russia probe

Published

on

GOP Sens Johnson and Grassley

Two powerful GOP Senators sent a letter Wednesday to Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Gina Haspel asking her to respond in full to their “July 28 letter that requested intelligence records relating to the Crossfire Hurricane investigation” that targeted President Donald Trump on the false assumptions that his 2016 campaign conspired with Russia.

Some of the documents being requested by the Senators from the CIA deal directly with information related to former ex British spy Christopher Steele’s debunked dossier used to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on short term campaign volunteer Carter Page, as well as any and “all records related to assistance requests about the persons or conduct at issue in the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation, whether before or after the opening of the investigation.”

Sen. Ron Johnson,, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, have not received a response from Haspel regarding a series of questions about the intelligence agencies knowledge of the FBI’s debunked investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.

In 2016, Haspel was the station chief for the CIA in London. It was in London where most of the overseas connections to the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign occurred. However, this does not mean that Haspel was in any way involved in those investigations but she may of had knowledge that they were occurring, sources told me.

“The information that has already been made public reveals what might be the most outrageous abuse of power in U.S. history against a presidential candidate and sitting president,” Sen. Johnson and Sen. Grassley.

“The American people have a right to know the full extent of official action taken by federal officials during the 2016 campaign, the presidential transition, and into the Trump administration,” stated Johnson and Grassley. “The information that has already been made public reveals what might be the most outrageous abuse of power in U.S. history against a presidential candidate and sitting president. Unfortunately, many of the puzzle pieces remain hidden, and some of that information rests within your agency.”

This week, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified information that CIA Director John Brennan had knowledge and hand written notes that Russian intelligence had allegedly gathered information that Hillary Clinton was planning to ‘stir up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security service.’

Brennan’s highly classified notes were declassified Tuesday Ratcliffe, who first made the information public last week. Moreover, it was discovered that Brennan had briefed then President Obama in the summer of 2016 on the information that he had obtained on Clinton.

American Girl publishes ‘guide’ for girls aged 3-12 on how to transition gender

Parents are furious over a popular doll brand is offering advice to girls as young as three on how to transition their gender. Though a published magazine, American Girl not only advocated for medicines available to “delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender” but supported the notion of making such decisions without parental consent.

“If you don’t have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you” the magazine, titled “A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image” writes. It offers readers to “turn to the Resources on page 95 for more information.”

The publication then details what discussions with a doctor could entail: “If you have’t gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity.”

“If you’ve already gone through puberty, a doctor can still help” it continues. “Studies show that transgender and nonbinary kids who get help from doctors have much better mental health than those who don’t.”

Normalizing body dysmorphia, the book reads “Parts of your body might make you feel uncomfortable, and you might wan to change the way you look. That’s totally OK!”

The Daily Mail notes “earlier this year, its parent company Mattel, recently put a transgender Barbie doll on the market. Before that, American Girl, which sells more than 30 million dolls a year, shilled an Asian doll when anti-Asian hate crimes were skyrocketing across the US.”
