FBI Director, James Comey and CIA Director Mike Pompeo are headed to New Zealand this weekend for a highly secretive meeting with the ‘Five Eyes’ Spying Network.
The New Zealand Herald reports:
The highly secretive meeting being held in Queenstown this weekend is a gathering of intelligence and security agencies related to the Five Eyes spying network, the Herald understands.
Among the people believed to be attending are Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Mike Pompeo.
It is understood about 15 agencies which carry out intelligence for Five Eyes – the spying partnership of the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and New Zealand – are attending the conference.
In a statement released yesterday, a spokesman for Prime Minister Bill English confirmed a number of senior officials were coming for a conference hosted by the Government, but would not reveal what the conference was.
“Due to specific security requirements we cannot comment further at this time. However, as police have pointed out they are not aware of a visit to Queenstown by a current or former head of state.”
Many are curious as to what will be discussed in this meeting. It is important to note that Judge Napolitano recently revealed that Obama tapped British spies and the ‘Five Eyes’ spying network to monitor Trump and his associates during the 2016 election.
