Tim Weiner: Powerful Counterintelligence Investigation Run By FBI, CIA, NSA Targeting Top Of Government

|

Journalist Tim Weiner, who won a Pulitzer Prize for investigating the CIA's "black budget," said the country is witnessing in realtime "a powerful counterintelligence investigation run by the FBI with the assistance of the CIA and the NSA that is targeting the top of this government."

Weiner appeared on Tuesday's broadcast of MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show to discuss the fallout of National Security Advisory Mike Flynn's resignation.

TIM WEINER: We are now three and a half weeks into this administration. Under Nixon -- and I remember this, I lived through this -- it took them three and a half years to break into the Democratic National Committee headquarters at Watergate. We are three and a half weeks into this administration, the Russians broke into the DNC for them! That's done.

Mike Flynn has fallen farther faster than any powerful official in any government in the 20th Century, in America. We are watching in realtime very quickly a powerful counterintelligence investigation run by the FBI with the assistance of the CIA and the NSA that is targeting the top of this government.
