Former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell admits 'no evidence' of collusion between Trump and Russia, says Trump Dossier 'takes you nowhere'.
The ‘Russiagate’ scandal received another body blow today when Hillary Clinton’s own pick for CIA Director admitted there was no evidence behind it.
Michael Morell, the former acting CIA Director, who would have been in line to become CIA Director if Hillary Clinton had won, has publicly admitted a point The Duran has repeatedly made: there is no evidence that Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia.
Morell’s comments, spoken to an event sponsored by the Cipher Brief, an intelligence web site, could not have been more forthright.
On the question of the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, he is reported to have said the following
Morell has pointed out that former DNI James Clapper has already previously said that he had seen no evidence of any illicit contacts between the Trump campaign and the Russians. As he pointed out
On the subject of the Trump Dossier, Morell was equally scathing.
When it was pointed out to Morell that the CIA also sometimes pays for information, he replied as follows
Morell is no Russia dove. He is the same former CIA official who last August made the demented proposal that the US initiate an assassination programme against Russian, Syrian and Iranian officials in Syria. During the election he called Donald Trump a “dupe of Russia”. He continues to say that its was the Russians who hacked the DNC’s and John Podesta’s computers and passed on their stolen emails to Wikileaks.
If someone as hardline as this with a background and contacts within the US intelligence community is now publicly saying that ‘Russiagate’ – the allegation that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton – is all a case of ‘smoke without fire’, then it is clear that this story is on its last legs.
