Larry Johnson: Brits Passed Intel on Trump ‘Back-channel’ with ‘Full Knowledge’ of Clapper and Brennan

‘It was a way to get around the issue of American intelligence agencies not collecting’

EXCERPT:

JOHNSON: “Well, apparently what happened was I communicated, when Donald Trump tweeted what he did on Saturday two weeks ago, the next day I was interviewed on Russia Today. I had known about the fact that the British, through GHCQ were information back-channel. This was not at the direction of Barack Obama, let’s be clear about that. But it was being done with the full knowledge of people like John Brennan and Jim Clapper. I have been told this by two different people I know within the intelligence community in January. They were very concerned about this because they saw it as an unfair meddling in the politics, but it was a way to get around the issue of American intelligence agencies not collecting.”
