The ferocity with which former CIA Director John Brennan attacks the president seems at first glance to simply mirror those on the extreme left.
That is until you begin to read between the lines and slowly peel back the layers of Brennan’s shady past regarding his communist ties and his clandestine meetings with Russian operatives before, during and after the 2016 Presidential election.
Additionally, for a former head of the CIA to publicly accuse the President of the United States of “treason” and days later publicly warn of violent insurrection, is no simple disagreement of national policies.
This leads one to wonder whether Brennan’s emotional outbursts are simply irrational progressive dogma or if there something more sinister going on.
Even Brennan’s longtime sidekick, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper seemed surprised by Brennan’s unhinged attacks on the president.
On Sunday Clapper attempted to distance himself from Brennan on CNN’s “State of the Union” telecast stating “John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself,” adding “John is subtle like a freight train and he’s gonna say what’s on his mind.”
Then perhaps attempting to clean up his own rhetoric, Clapper empathized his concerns regarding a threat to the United States from the Trump administration.
“I think that the common denominator among all of us (in the intelligence community) that have been speaking up … is genuine concern about the jeopardy and threats to our institutions.”
This actually sounds bizarre coming from Clapper, in that the actual threat to our institutions came from his former boss Obama, who gutted the military and politicized the FBI, the JOD, and the IRS (which is now being reluctantly revealed putting the entire Obama Intelligence leadership in critical jeopardy).
Brennan’s continued assertions of perhaps having information against the Trump Administration because of his unique security clearance, as a former CIA Director peeked the interest of Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) on Thursday.
“If his statement is based on intelligence he has seen since leaving office, it constitutes an intelligence breach. If he has some other personal knowledge of or evidence of collusion, it should be disclosed to the special counsel, not The New York Times.”
Adding that the president has the “full authority” to rescind Brennan’s clearance if the former CIA Director’s statements were “purely political and based on conjecture.”
Then came Brennan’s bizarre public threat of a lawsuit against the Administration, prompting former New York Mayor and the president’s attorney Rudy Giuliani to openly dare Brennan to do so.
Implying that a lawsuit by Brennan would allow the Trump legal team to delve deeper into Brennan’s questionable background during the “discovery phase” of the lawsuit and finally get some troubling answers resolved. That response by the former mayor to Brennan’s threaten lawsuit, drew uncharacteristic silence from the former CIA chief.
Brennan’s checkered past shows him not only as a communist sympathizer but someone who actually supported and voted for communist ideals. Not to mention the lies he told Congress while under oath in regards to directing his agency to spy on Senate Intelligence Committee members, illegal acts which have yet to be investigated by the Justice Department.
However perhaps the most egregious are the rumors circling Brennan regarding his connections to Moscow dating back to the mid 70’s and his multiple visits to Russia within the last 5-years, the most recent, a secret visit in March 2016, for undisclosed purposes.
“It’s no secret that Brennan was here,” acknowledged Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov. “But he didn’t visit the Foreign Ministry. I know for sure that he met with the Federal Security Service (the successor agency to the Soviet KGB), and someone else.”
There’s no further information on what Brennan was allegedly doing in Moscow or what he discussed with the FSB. However, Syromolotov insists it had nothing to do with Russia’s withdrawal from Syria.
Investigative reporter Paul Sperry of RealClear Investigations cites two former colleagues of Brennan who’ve contradicted his claim that the unverified “Steele Dossier” was not part of the US Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) on Russian interference in the 2016 election, accusing Brennan further of purposely feeding the false information within the dossier to investigators.
