Trumpy; Attempting A "Cheney"

" CIA Director Mike Pompeo met on October 24 with William Binney, a former National Security Agency official-turned-whistleblower who co-authored an analysis published by a group of former intelligence officials that challenges the U.S. intelligence community’s official assessment that Russian intelligence was behind last year’s theft of data from DNC computers. Binney and the other former officials argue that the DNC data was leaked,” not hacked, “by a person with physical access” to the DNC’s computer system.

 

It is possible Trump learned about Binney and his analysis by watching Fox News, where Binney has been a frequent guest, appearing at least 10 times since September 2016. In August, Binney appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show to discuss his assessment that the narrative of Russia hacking the DNC during the 2016 campaign is untrue, stating that “many people are emotionally tied to this agenda, to tie the Russians to President Trump.” Binney said he is not sure how Trump found out about his analysis.

 

However the meeting came about, the fact that Pompeo was apparently willing to follow Trumps direction and invite Binney to discuss his analysis has alarmed some current and former intelligence officials.

 

This is crazy. Youve got all these intelligence agencies saying the Russians did the hack. To deny that is like coming out with the theory that the Japanese didnt bomb Pearl Harbor,” said one former CIA officer."
