Additionally, an anonymous source recently provided the news station with “an alarming email” hacked from CIA contractor Strafor’s President Fred Burton. The email, which was posted on WikiLeaks, claimed that Brennan previously headed up the government’s effort to crackdown on investigative journalists.
“Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists learning information from inside the beltway sources,” the alleged email reads. “Note — There is specific tasker from the WH to go after anyone printing materials negative to the Obama agenda (oh my.) Even the FBI is shocked. The Wonder Boys must be in meltdown mode…”
The email’s authenticity has not been confirmed.
Journalist Michael Hastings was investigating CIA Director John Brennan for an upcoming expose project prior to his tragic death in a car accident, the reporter’s wife, Elise Jordan, confirmed. XETV-TV reporter Kimberly Dvorak claims sources had told her the exact same thing.
