Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper threw former CIA Director John Brennan under the bus on Sunday, telling CNN‘s “State of the Union” that “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.”
That said, Clapper empathized with Brennan over shared concerns regarding what they say is 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,” said Clapper.
Brennan’s increasingly inflammatory commentary of late has also drawn the attention of Congressional GOP. On Thursday, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) slammed Brennan for “purport[ing] to know, as fact, that the Trump campaign colluded with a foreign power.”
“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,” said Burr, who added that Trump had the “full authority” to rescind Brennan’s clearance if the former CIA Director’s statements were “purely political and based on conjecture.”
President Trump promptly tweeted Burr’s statement:
“Director Brennan’s recent statements purport to know as fact that the Trump campaign colluded with a foreign power. If Director Brennan’s statement is based on intelligence he received while leading the CIA, why didn’t he include it in the Intelligence Community Assessment……”
A security clearance is in place for the time that a person has a requirement for it. As a military member leaves their assignment that required a security clearance it is revoked. Brennan and Clapper should stop being a crying low life and move on.
Brennan has threatened to sue Trump for taking away his security clearance to which Trump replied, “I hope John Brennan, the worst CIA Director in our country’s history, brings a lawsuit. It will then be very easy to get all of his records, texts, emails and documents to show not only the poor job he did, but how he was involved with the Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt. He won’t sue!”
Former New York City Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures yesterday morning.
Rudy went off on John Brennan accusing him of launching the fraudulent Russian conspiracy against Donald Trump.
Rudy added that he would like to be the person to depose John Brennan for the president if Brennan moves ahead with his threats to sue President Trump.
I recently saw two comments that define Brennan’s actions and what should be requi red of a person leaving a security position.
Treasonous Brennan never denied or repented of being a Voting Communist and becoming a convert to Islam. Read what that means. . Every (practicing) Islamist is subjugated to the Koran and Sharia Law and that demands they must both
.1 annihilate (by whatever means and however long it takes) all non-Islamic entities (Biblical believers, edifices and principles) not subjugated as they are, and
.2 reject and destroy any set of laws (USA’s Constitution, laws and the legislative and enforcement systems) not subjugated to Sharia law.
. To do so, all forms of lying, cheating, subterfuge, breaking of contracts, deception, murder, killings, terrorism and any anti-Biblical means that brings honor and glory to Allah (Satan) are praiseworthy to all Islamist.
. Hence Obama (a not so covert Muslim) and his peers never critiqued or condemned those actions unless it was ‘taqiyya’ (an approved form of deception to pretend they are offended while inwardly rejoicing and supporting such actions).
. Simply put, while many may deny it, every Islamist is a warrior and at war (to some degree) with every non-Islamist.
. Can you name one Obama appointment who is a Biblical Christian. Every appointment was either tolerant of or a Muslim.
Obama had these on payroll right inside the WH:
- Arif Alikhan, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
• Mohammed Elibiary, Homeland Security Adviser
• Rashad Hussain, Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC)
• Salam al-Marayati, Obama adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council and is its current executive director
• Imam Mohamed Magid, Obama’s Sharia Czar from the Islamic Society of North America
• Eboo Patel, Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships
Clarence Cochran :
When anyone quits or is terminated from employment, does the business allow them to keep the keys to the business or their alarm code? No, to do so is not only poor business security, it’s downright asinine. This is the similar situation. He’s no longer employed by the Federal Government, so any access he had while an employee, should discontinue upon his departure. Professional courtesy be damned. The man has worked tirelessly and relentlessly since his dismissal to undermine the current administration through his continued false claims of conspiracy. That is TREASON. Frankly, if you’re no longer employed by the government, you should lose your security clearance as a matter of course. His future contributions through consultation would be negligible at best. As far as I’m concerned, all of the Past Administrations appointees who are no longer employed by the US Government, should lose their clearances, and I include Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Reagan chiefs in that statement.
Whoever started the whole “we’ll keep you in the security loop” policy was an idiot.
That being said, Sean Hannity on his show last week pointed out a rule the CIA has pertaining to former employees that says a former CIA employee can renew their security clearance every five years as long as they act like a regular employee. These people who Trump is taking away their security clearances abused their positions which is why he is taking it away from them.
In doing a lot of research on Brennan I found some interesting things about him you won’t hear anyplace else.. I came across a thread written by a fellow who calls himself Imperator Rex who relayed some very interesting facts about Brennan that reveal a disturbing theme. These are hardcore facts not some crazy conspiracy theory. I report. You decide: Is John Brennan a Russian spy? It’s not out of the question.
For the last few days, I’ve had the misfortune of going through transcripts of Brennan’s ravings, for the last 18 months. HOURS of work reveal a disturbing theme: Brennan frames his hysteria as anti-Trump comments, but to me their objective is something different:
Seeking to divide and confuse American citizens. EXACTLY what Putin is aiming for. Consider Putin’s objective in 2016. It was to cause division within the US citizenry and political class, mainly via social media.
HOWEVER.The Steele Dossier was a great gift, as it permitted Putin to pollinate the election with misinformation, that was actively promoted by Obama, Clinton and their media slaves.
But of all Obama’s crooks, who was the #1 architect, pushing the dirt all over town? John O Brennan doing EXACTLY what Putin would want an agent to do.
Brennan has made SECRET visits to Moscow at least TWICE in the last 5 years:
March 2016 (given what’s unfolding, this is incredibly suspicious IMO)
OK, he was CIA Director. Maybe these are necessary visits. The trouble is, his actions indicate a man who hates America.
Brennan – as CIA Director – spied on the Senate Intelligence Committee – and then lied about it: Ditto, Brennan REPEATEDLY lied to Congress and Americans, without remorse. No CIA Director has ever shown such contempt for American institutions and people.
His CIA nomination by Obama was considered outrageous.
Brennan’s links to Communism & Moscow stretch far back. Consider just these points – from earlier in Brennan’s life – and tell me that there isn’t smoke:
#1 – Brennan voted for communist Gus Hall in 1976, just 4 years before he joined the CIA (1980)
#2 – Gus Hall was head of the Communist Party in the USA, backed and funded by the Kremlin (when Brennan voted for Hall, in 1976 & perhaps 1980):
#3 – The Kremlin has been operating a deep cover agent program known as ‘The Illegals’ since the 1970s, which escalated in the 1980s :
#4 – During this time (1979), Brennan married Kathy Pokluda. It is almost impossible to find anything about her background, except that she is of ‘Czech ancestry’.
Bear in mind that Czechoslovakia was annexed by Stalin after WW2. It is probable that her parents were raised in Communist Czechoslovakia.
#5 – During his studies and while supporting Gus Hall, Brennan spent at least a year at The American University in Cairo (1976/77).
The Kremlin had developed an extensive spy network in Egypt. This was embedded while Brennan was there:
So Brennan voted for & perhaps worked to support Gus Hall, head of the American Communist Party. He just happened to spend a year in Egypt, where the KGB had an entrenched network. Then came back while the KGB was running long-range sleeper spies in the USA.
It would take too long to go through his entire CIA career, but let’s move another period: Brennan’s role as Obama’s CIA Director.
Obama LOVED Brennan. He included him in all foreign policy decisions. And what do we know about Obama’s Russia policy?
It STRENGTHENED Putin EVERYWHERE.
It’s true. While Brennan was CIA Director under Obama, almost every decision the administration made Putin STRONGER.
Consider just FOUR examples:
#1 – Ukraine – Obama’s response to Russia’s invasion of Crimea in March 2014 was so inadequate, that it permitted Putin to establish a new Russian presence in the region.
#2 – Syria – Obama’s ‘red line’ was never applied, strengthening Putin’s lap dog in Damascus, Assad.
#3 – Iran – as a Russian ally, the Iran deal unquestionably strengthened Putin’s hand in the Mid-east.
# 4 – Russian membership of the WTO, after 19 years of negotiation.
Hey, I can’t prove that Brennan is a Russian spy, who was operating at the highest levels of the Obama administration. But there’s a MOUNTAIN of circumstantial evidence that makes the discussion a reasonable one to have.
Trump has done America a GREAT SERVICE by taking down John O Brennan.
Keep in mind, his nixing of Brennan’s security clearance has allowed spooks to surveil Brennan since at least Jan 20, 2017.
This is just the beginning of the end of John ‘O’ Brennan.
