Back in March, embattled CIA Director John Brennan defended the agency over explosive claims leveled by US senators who said the agency hacked into their computers while they were investigating the CIA’s torture program.
“As far as allegations of CIA hacking into Senate computers, nothing could be further from the truth,” Brennan said during an interview at the Council on Foreign Relations. “We wouldn’t do that. That’s just beyond the scope of reason.”
Earlier this month, the CIA’s own internal watchdog wrapped up a probe into the matter, and it turns out Brennan apparently misjudged the scope of reason — the agency's inspector general, David Buckley, concluded that the CIA hacked into Senate staffers' computers and spied on them.
Senator Mark Udall, a member of the intelligence committee who has butted heads with Brennan over the torture report, called for the CIA director's resignation Thursday.
"After being briefed on the CIA Inspector General report today, I have no choice but to call for the resignation of CIA Director John Brennan," Udall said in a statement. "The CIA unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into Senate Intelligence Committee computers. This grave misconduct not only is illegal, but it violates the US Constitution’s requirement of separation of powers. These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA, demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences."
Keep this in mind when being tempted to fall for CIA and other "intelligence" propaganda concerning Russia, et al. They lie and lie and lie and lie.
