Around 10 a.m. on a Saturday in August 2018, someone made the extraordinary decision to show a White House staff member a top-secret report written by investigators working for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), which is universally pronounced as “hip C.”
The still-secret, never-released HPSCI report concluded that the Russian government wanted Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, to win the 2016 election and that then-CIA Director John Brennan had manipulated a January 2017 “Intelligence Community Assessment,” or ICA, which had come to the opposite conclusion.
“There was the top-secret version I was shown,” said the man, who came forward after reading yesterday’s report by Public and Racket. “There was an even more highly classified version that I was not shown, which had more details.”
The HPSCI offices are located in a large complex underneath the capitol visitor’s center. “It was built after 9/11,” he explained. “It’s a huge underground facility that the public never sees. The whole office is a SCIF.”
A SCIF is a Secure Compartmentalized Information Facility and is pronounced “skiff.”
The former White House staffer did not want to say who brought him into the HPSCI SCIF to read the report. They did so secretly. There is no record of him reading the report.
“About one-quarter of HPSCI staff are former intelligence officers,” he said.
