Rep. Trey Gowdy questioned Obama appointed ex-CIA Chief John Brennan on evidence of U.S.-Russia collusion, finally getting Brennan to admit he doesn’t know if there was in fact any collusion.
Brennan was fired by President Trump right after he took office, and replaced by Mike Pompeo so Brennan has had it in for Trump ever since.
When Brennan spouted of about Russian collusion it raise plenty of eyebrows in the Republican party. And today he was finally questioned on his statements in front of the House Intelligence Committee.
Gowdy has been itching to question Brennan if he had seen any evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between Donald Trump and Russian actors, and today he finally got his chance.
When asked about it Brennan said, “I saw interaction, but I don’t know. I don’t have sufficient information to make a determination whether or not there was cooperation or complicity or collusion.”
Saying that he had seen information about contacts between Russian and U.S. actors that led him to believe the matter should be investigated further by the FBI, but declined to say whether or not he saw direct links between Trump and Russia.
“That doesn’t help us a whole lot,” Gowdy retorted.
“I was aware of intelligence and information about contacts between Russian officials and U.S. persons that raised concerns in my mind about whether or not those individuals were cooperating with the Russians. That served as the basis for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion, cooperation occurred,” Brennan explained.
Gowdy, still unsatisfied, responded, “Well, there are a bunch of words that start with ‘C’ floating around.”
“I asked you about collusion, coordination and conspiracy, and you used the word ‘contact,’” Gowdy said. “Contact could be benign or not benign. So was it contact you saw, what was the nature of what you saw?”
“I saw interaction,” Brennan said. “But I don’t know. I don’t have sufficient information to make a determination whether or not there was cooperation or complicity or collusion.”
