There’s an old proverb for characters like John Brennan (the former head of the CIA), “people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
Fortunately, there are individuals like Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul to keep Brennan in check. In fact, Sen. Paul apparently felt obligated to come to the president’s defense Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” after Brennan called Trump “treasonous”.
“The former director of the CIA, you think of that as a sober-minded person, responsible person, kind of a James Bond with maybe an advanced degree. Here you have a naked partisan nut cake describing a press conference as treason,” said Carlson. “How should that make us feel as American citizens?”
Paul wasted little time in calling out the self-righteous blowhard stating, “It makes me wonder whether he should be getting a government pension if he’s going to be disrespecting the commander-in-chief, calling the president treasonous. That’s about as overtop as you can imagine.”
Tucker then reminded his viewers of the significance of referencing someone a traitor, “treason is a death penalty offense” and yet that is how Brennan “is describing his views.”
“You have to realize John Brennan started his illustrious career by voting for the American Communist Party, you know that’s who he wanted to win the presidency, back in the 70s,” Paul said. “When he came to be head of the CIA, I filibustered him because I thought he was bad news from the very beginning.”
Moreover, Brennan didn’t simply vote in 1976 for Gus Hall, he was a big supporter of the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, and publicly acknowledged he missed “Communist Russia.”
As Brennan tells it or perhaps attempts to spin the facts, he was a college student and his voting for the American Communist Party back in the 70’s was his way of “signaling my unhappiness with the system, and the need for change.”
Paul added that Brennan “is one of the most powerful people in the world who has the ability to destroy anybody in the world and gain information on anything you do” and “yet with all that power he was coming to work each day with a bias and a hatred of the president, it should worry us all. What other things he could possibly have been doing with that power?”
However, Sen. Paul wasn’t the only lawmaker to lambaste Brennan regarding his questionable past. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) also weighed in Monday, coming to the defense of the president accusing the former CIA chief of lacking credibility in discussing President Trump’s historic Summit Meeting with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.
“John Brennan was a disaster as CIA director. He was a disaster as the counterterrorism official. He was a member of the Communist Party during the Cold War,” DeSantis said on Fox News.
Lest we forget, this is the same guy who refused to take his oath of office as CIA Director on the Bible, misses the days of atheistic Marxism and fears the revival of a Christian Russia.
