It’s a case of ‘He Said, He Said, He Said.’ Yes, we’ve got ourselves a regular film noir, B-movie mystery brewing in Washington D.C., as the Department of Justice begins its investigation into the genesis of the Russia probe.

From Fox News:

A high-level dispute over which senior government officials pushed the unverified Steele dossier amid efforts to surveil the Trump campaign has broken out into the open again, after it emerged that Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if the FBI and DOJ’s actions were “lawful and appropriate.”

Sources familiar with the records told Fox News that a late-2016 email chain indicated then-FBI Director James Comey told bureau subordinates that then-CIA Director John Brennan insisted the dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference, known as the ICA.

But in a statement to Fox News, a former CIA official put the blame squarely on Comey.

“Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, are the ones who opposed James Comey’s recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report,” the official said.

Yeah, it’s going to be good times watching this one play out, according to WIBC host Tony Katz.

“This is going to be amazing to watch and watch them defend themselves and their actions. And when you see this kind of back and forth, you have to wonder, ‘Are they getting nervous? Are they acting scared? I mean, this appointing of John Durham, is this a problem for them?”
