Debunking the “17 intelligence agencies” lie

The claim that 17 intelligence agencies concluded Russia was responsible for election meddling is bullshit.

Originally from my video “Jimmy Dore – The Good, The Bad & The
Ugly” WATCH:

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper confirmed multiple times in a Senate Hearing that it was 3 agencies – FBI, the NSA, and the CIA — plus the Office of DNI.

He said on CNN “how this narrative got out there about 17 components being involved, I don’t know.”

Despite this, and corrections being issued by The New York Times & AP, it is still endlessly repeated – TO THIS DAY – by top pundits on CNN and MSNBC.

  1. Just a short clip, originally from my much longer video "Jimmy Dore – The Good, The Bad & The Ugly"

    I STILL see the claim being made about 17 intelligence agencies repeated everywhere. It's provably bullshit, astounds me how this still gets repeated unchallenged in mainstream media.

  2. Clapper lies to cover up another lie. Not 17 agencies but er… 3. To set the record straight, in his LaLa Land, there were actually only -3 agencies which were controlled by Putin.

  3. Only three. OK so if the other ones do not disagree with their conclusions what is your argument? By the way the other intelligence agencies would have absolutely nothing to do with the Russian interference investigation. These are the 17 intelligence agencies:
    Air Force Intelligence, Army Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency, Coast Guard Intelligence, Defense Intelligence Agency, Energy Department, Homeland Security Department, State Department, Treasury Department, Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Marine Corps Intelligence, National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, National Security Agency, Navy Intelligence and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
    did anyone not involved in the investigation disagree with the conclusion of the three? No. Would it make any sense for The energy department or the drug enforcement agency to investigate Russian interference? Of course not. Are you arguing that since the number was incorrect then just throw out their conclusions ? Oh, IC. You’re just going to put on your tinfoil hat and say they were hand-picked to come up with the conclusions that they did. It’s all a big conspiracy against Donald Trump and Republicans. LOL nice try, Mr. bullshit man.
