Former CIA Officer John Kiriakou: John Brennan and Robert Mueller "Set Out To Ruin People" | Video | RealClearPolitics
In 2007, the Bush administration investigated me and determined I hadn't committed a crime" for leaking about the torture program, Kiriakau explained. "When Barack Obama became president, John Brennan became the number two at the National Security Council, and he asked the Justice Department, Eric Holder, to secretly reopen the case against me. That went to Robert Mueller."

"The injustice is incredible," he said, "this is why I'm so happy to have this opportunity to speak with you tonight because I know Robert Mueller and I know John Brennan, and this is what they do. They set out to ruin people."

"Russiagate that has nothing whatsoever to do with Russia, by the way. And none of these indictments have anything to do with anything. They're what are called throw-away indictments," he said. "So, what you have is a man, Robert Mueller, who chooses a person, and then looks for a crime to hang on the person rather than discovering a crime and then investigating to see who committed the crime."

The CIA and The Banality of Haspel
She didn’t just obey orders as a lowly grunt, the defense used by Nazi underlings at the Nuremberg trials. She actively sought out the “most demanding” assignments and rose through the ranks accordingly. Advancement by demonstrating that you can do the dirty work without qualms: It’s the same path taken by Vladimir Putin, former KGB bureau chief, on his way to becoming Russian president.

CIA misled BYU grad who wrote memo used to justify torture program - The Salt Lake Tribune
The summary criticizes the CIA for misleading the Justice Department, the White House, Congress and the public on the extent of torture and its effectiveness. The report found no evidence what the CIA called "enhanced interrogation" techniques stopped any terrorist attacks.

The Senate released only a 525-page summary and conclusion. Portions of that redacted the names of many CIA operatives or people who participated in the actual interrogations. There are no plans to release the other 6,700 pages of the report.
