Former CIA Analyst Fred Fleitz said Monday on Fox News that a "handpicked group of 12 analysts" wrote the US intelligence report which blamed Russia for "hacking the election" and he believes it was "rigged" and "fabricated" by "pro-Obama intelligence officials."
Asked to weigh in on how the New York Times and the Associated Press retracted the false claim "17 intelligence agencies" agreed Russia hacked our election, Fleitz said: "There's certain procedures to write an assessment like this, all intelligence agencies are supposed to weigh in, only three agencies did."
"And we found out from former Director of National Intelligence Clapper a hand-picked group of 12 analysts wrote this -- that's extraordinary," he said. "The CIA, there are hundreds of experts who should have had a hand in this."
Fleitz continued: "And one final thing which we discovered after I was on the show before, we learned from FBI Director Comey that the conclusion in this assessment that Russia intervened specifically to help Trump win, was based on logic, it wasn't based on a piece of intelligence that means this group of analysts who were chosen through some mysterious process this is their opinion."
Here's an excerpt from an article he wrote back in May for Fox News:
Although the news media is certain to play up a new Senate Intelligence Committee subpoena of Michael Flynn for documents on his business dealings with Russia as a major new development in the congressional investigations of possible Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, there is a far more important story that surfaced this week that no one is talking about: a mysterious hand-picked group of analysts chosen to write a damning intelligence assessment that found Russia intervened in the election to help Trump win.We need a special counsel to investigate these cronies.
