Former CIA Director John Brennan is backpedaling remarks he made last month regarding President Trump‘s seemingly cozy relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Brennan criticized the president for his congratulatory call to Putin after his reelection during an appearance on Morning Joe, claiming Trump has “something to fear” and believed Trump treats his Russian counterpart so gently. When asked specifically if he thought Russia “had something” on the president, Brennan responded by saying they “may have things” on him and that “perhaps” it was something personal. Well now, he’s walking it back a bit. Appearing on The 11th Hour, Brennan was asked by Brian Williams if he still believed what he said. “What I was doing was responding to a question about whether the Russians might have something on Mr. Trump and I think I said ‘it’s possible, perhaps.’ I don’t know,” Brennan … [Read more...] about Ex-CIA Director Brennan Walks Back Claim That Russia ‘May Have Things’ On Trump: ‘I Don’t Know’

Former CIA Director John Brennan went off on President Trump again this morning, this time in response to the President’s tweet touting the firing of Andrew McCabe. McCabe was fired yesterday, days before he was set to retire with full pension, and in subsequent interviews he claimed he was being singled out and smeared due to his involvement in investigations concerning the administration. Late last night Trump tweeted this: Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2018 And this morning, Brennan fired back in a stunning tweet: When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin … [Read more...] about Ex-CIA Director Brennan Rips Trump Over McCabe Tweet: ‘America Will Triumph Over You’
Former CIA Director John Brennan repeatedly expressed his profound concerns about the state of American leadership on MSNBC today. Given the comments by NSA Director Mike Rogers this week on not being given the proper authority to respond to Russian meddling, Brennan told Nicolle Wallace President Trump should be concerned about the Russians attempting to meddle in the midterms and in 2020. He said it’s no secret Trump was “very ill-prepared” for dealing with serious matters like these, and now it’s “coming to roost.” Brennan also called Trump “unstable” and unethical before saying the following: “When I hear what Vladimir Putin was saying just yesterday about the nuclear capabilities that he has, and then the President of the United States is tweeting about Alec Baldwin this morning––I mean, where is your sense of priorities? I think a lot of Americans are looking at what’s happening with a sense of, you know, … [Read more...] about Ex-CIA Chief Brennan: We Have Serious Problems to Face and Trump ‘Is Tweeting About Alec Baldwin’?!
Former CIA Director John Brennan called out President Trump on Twitter today for his tweet claiming he’s been “much tougher” on Russia than his predecessor Barack Obama. I have been much tougher on Russia than Obama, just look at the facts. Total Fake News! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 20, 2018 Over the past few days, following the indictments issued against Russians on Friday, the President has not criticized Russia but instead gone after the FBI, Democrats, and––most notably––Obama: Finally, Liddle’ Adam Schiff, the leakin’ monster of no control, is now blaming the Obama Administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 Election. He is finally right about something. Obama was President, knew of the threat, and did nothing. Thank you Adam! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2018 Thank you to @foxandfriends for the great timeline on all of the failures the Obama Administration had against … [Read more...] about Ex-CIA Director Brennan Rips Trump on Twitter for ‘Small, Petty, and Banal’ Russia Tweet
Former CIA Director John Brennan tore into Devin Nunes on Meet the Press this morning over the FISA memo released Friday.Chuck Todd asked him for detail about some of what the memo reveals and how the dossier was treated.Brennan said Nunes is being “exceptionally partisan,” citing how we aren’t able to see the underlying information the memo is based on: “I’ve had fights with the Dems over the years when I was in the Obama administration, including on the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the interrogation program the CIA ran. But I never ever saw the Democrats do something like this that was so partisan, so reckless, and really just laid waste to the protocols that govern committees. And Devin Nunes, over the past several months, all the way back to spring of last year, I think has been engaged in these tactics purely to defend, make excuses, and try to protect Mr. Trump.”Todd asked him to compare this to the Senate Intel Committee … [Read more...] about Ex-CIA Director Brennan Trashes Devin Nunes: He Has ‘Abused’ His Office
