CIA Director Gina Haspel, whom many believe played integral roles in the Russia-collusion hoax and vote-fraud conspiracies, among other things, resigned just in time for incoming President Joe Biden to name her successor.
“It has been the greatest honor of my life to lead this remarkable organization,” Haspel said in a statement, according to the Gateway Pundit.
“I depart deeply proud of the work we have done together—the triumphs we have achieved, the threats we have overcome, and the investments we have made for the future,” she added.
Although Haspel was appointed by Trump to replace corrupt Obama flunkie John Brennan, she appeared to maintain deep loyalty to her former boss.
Trump was rumored in recent months to be considering firing Haspel and FBI Director Christopher Wray amid a flurry of early departures that included Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Attorney General William Barr.
But whatever deep-state leverage the two top intelligence chiefs had, it ultimately prevailed.
Haspel, in particular, was known to have thwarted Trump’s efforts to declassify and release many of the documents related to the “Crossfire Hurricane” probe into debunked allegations that Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
It was later confirmed that the narrative was put forward by Hillary Clinton to deflect from her own FBI scandal into a private email server.
The agency then knowingly promoted false information from the Steele Dossier in order to spy on Trump officials during the election, transition and early days of his presidency, setting the tone for the growing partisan rift and distrust of the bureaucracy that characterized much of Trump’s term.
Haspel, herself, was involved with the CIA’s London bureau at the time that intelligence agencies are believed to have actively pursued a scheme to implicate Trump adviser George Papadopoulos, who was living there at the time.
At least three informants for the CIA and Western intelligence agencies were involved in the sting operation to bait Papadopoulos with information about a Russian hack of Clinton’s emails and then record him implicating the campaign in it.
Australian diplomat Alexander Downer’s cable home claiming Papadopoulos had confided in him ultimately triggered the FBI to launch “Crossfire Hurricane.”
