Liberals continue their incessant rant, claiming that Donald Trump won the election because he colluded with Russia to hack the election. This week, however, a former CIA director who advised the Clinton campaign admitted that he has not found a “spark” of evidence that the Trump campaign was helped by the Russian government during the presidential campaign.
The Daily Caller reported that Michael Morell told a crowd of intelligence analysts at an event hosted by the Cipher Brief, a website that monitors the intelligence community, that he is skeptical about the 35-page dossier alleging campaign collusion because the author of the document paid his sources through intermediaries.
“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all,” Morrell said. “There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”
Compiled by MI6 agent Christopher Steele, the dossier cites numerous sources who claim Trump advisers worked with Russian intelligence officials to influence the election. However, none of these claims have been verified.
Morell said he learned Steele obtained this information through intermediaries rather than firsthand.
“Unless you know the sources, and unless you know how a particular source acquired a particular piece of information, you can’t judge the information — you just can’t,” Morell said. “I had two questions when I first read it. One was, How did Chris [Steele] talk to these sources? I have subsequently learned that he used intermediaries.”
“And that kind of worries me a little bit because if you’re paying somebody, particularly former FSB officers, they are going to tell you truth and innuendo and rumor, and they’re going to call you up and say, ‘Hey, let’s have another meeting, I have more information for you,’ because they want to get paid some more,” Morell continued. “I think you’ve got to take all that into consideration when you consider the dossier.”
