Former CIA Director John Brennan said on Tuesday that he had concerns that Russian officials may have successfully recruited aides from Donald Trump’s campaign to help in the Kremlin’s efforts to influence last year’s presidential election.

"I encountered and am aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign that I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals," he told lawmakers. "And it raised questions in my mind again whether or not the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of those individuals."

His remarks, before the House Intelligence Committee, are the most direct acknowledgment yet by a current or former U.S. official that Russia sought to recruit Americans to help in its effort to affect the 2016 contest. The remarks also further complicate matters for President Donald Trump, who has dismissed the investigations into Russia’s election meddling as a “witch hunt.”

First off, I'm not saying the reports are true or untrue.  Don't know.  Work as a lawyer in DC, went to school here for Undergraduate and Law degrees, and know many of the players through staffers I went to school with.  What I do know through knowing these people is that I would not trust Brennan, Clapper, or Susan Rice to dogsit for twenty minutes.  Brennan spied on Senate Staffers to see what they had on Bush era waterboarding, a clear violation of the law, and forced Dianne Feinstein to condemn him on the Senate floor, where btw, a good month of 2014 was spent discussing whether or not to fire Brennan. 

Credibility matters when making accusations, and that's something that whatever shreds were left were destroyed in the passage of the Iran deal, after it was revealed and bragged about that the Intelligence Community intentionally misled Congress to secure the deal's passage. 

It maybe true.  It might not be true.  Just don't get your hopes up.  Anyone who uses any of these three sources for anything will need serious corroboration.
