During the third Presidential debate, Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of being Vladimir Putin’s puppet.

The media ran with the accusation.

But Obama’s former CIA Director just gave testimony revealing that everything you thought you knew about the Russian scandal is dead wrong.

Back in January, BuzzFeed published an unverified opposition research memo stating the Russians had compromising information on President Trump.

The document was filled with scandalous gossip and fake news.

There was – however – one candidate the Russians did have compromising information on.

And it was Hillary Clinton.

Former CIA Director John Brennan revealed in Congressional testimony that he believed the Russians may have collected information on Clinton to use against her should she have won the election.

The Daily Caller reports:

“The former intelligence chief hinted that the Russians may have obtained additional information through hacking that they did not release prior to the election.

“If they did collect more information about her that they did not release, I think they were probably husbanding it for another day,” Brennan explained.

South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy asked the former CIA director whether he thought Russia had information in reserve. When Brennan refused to answer in an open session, Gowdy again pushed for a yes or no answer. Brennan did not publicly confirm or deny whether U.S. intelligence agencies believe Russia has additional information on Clinton to disseminate.

“The efforts to further hurt her if she became president, that information or any derogatory information on her, could have been husbanded for a post-election period,” Brennan further revealed.”

That information could have come from hacks on her private email server.

Foreignpolicy.com reported that an account belonging to a Bill Clinton staffer was compromised:

“In a summary of its investigation into Clinton’s use of private email released Friday, the FBI concluded that a username and password for an email account on the server — it’s not clear whose email beyond that it belonged to a woman working as an aide to former President Bill Clinton — was compromised by an unknown entity. That entity logged into the compromised email, read messages, and browsed attachments using a service called Tor.

And Fox News reported sources claimed five different agencies hacked into her server:

“The classified e-mail investigation is being run by the National Security division of the FBI. They are currently combing through Anthony Weiner’s laptop. They are having some success — finding what they believe to be new emails, not duplicates, that have been transported through Hillary Clinton’s server.

Finally, we learned there is a confidence from these sources that her server had been hacked. And that it was a 99% accuracy that it had been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and that things had been taken from that.”

But that is just the tip of the iceberg with the Clintons ties to Russia.

Campaign chairman John Podesta had substantial financial ties to Russia.

And as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton did not recommend Barack Obama veto a sale of a Canadian company with substantial uranium stocks to a Russian government controlled company.

This curiously happened at the same time the company’s CEO made donations to the Clinton Foundation – which the group did not initially disclose.

From day one the Russia story has been nothing but fake news and a distraction.

The real scandal has always been the Clintons and their actions.
