As the treason noose around his neck tightens, fake news network NBC security analyst, Communist, Muslim terrorist sympathizing, former CIA director John Brennan is doubling down on a threat to sue President Trump after the outspoken former Obama official was stripped of his security clearance.
Brennan appeared Friday night on MSNBC and told Rachel Maddow he is exploring litigation against the president. This follows Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) saying Trump stripping Brennan of his security clearance is illegal. (SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO)
“As you can imagine, a number of lawyers reached out to say that there is a very strong case here, not so much to reclaim mine but to prevent this from happening in the future,” Brennan said. “So, I am thinking about what it is that I might want to do. At this time, I’m trying to make sure that the principle is what is going to be defended and supported and this is something that should not be repeated.”
“The other people on the so-called enemy’s list now, I think this is just another example of Mr. Trump trying to frighten and intimidate others,” he continued. “But I can tell you, having worked in the national security and intelligence, these are not the type of people who are bullied or intimidated by the likes of someone of Mr. Trump.”
Today NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Brennan if he’s “serious” about suing the president. Brennan said that he is.
“Well, I have been contacted by a number of lawyers and they have already given me their thoughts about the basis for a complaint, an injunction to try to prevent him from doing this in the future,” Brennan responded. “If my clearances, and my reputation, as I’m being pulled through the mud now, it if that’s the price we’re going to pay to prevent Donald Trump from doing this to other people, to me it’s a small price to pay. I am going to do whatever I can personally to try to prevent these abuses in the future. And if it means going to court, I will do that.”
TODD: “You have been more outspoken than really any former official. And in fact, it may be why many Republican legislators feel comfortable taking the president’s side, they believe your comments have been over the top. Do you regret essentially accusing the president of treason? Do you regret some of the things you have said?”
BRENNAN: “I called his behavior treasonous which is to betray one’s trust and aid and albeit the enemy and I stand very much by that claim.”
TODD: “You are the former CIA director accusing the sitting president of the United States. It’s not a private citizen. A lot of people here, the former CIA director accusing the sitting president of the United States of treason, that’s a monumental accusation.
BRENNAN: “Well, I think these are abnormal times and I think a lot of people have spoken out against what Mr. Trump has done and maybe it’s my warning, training as an intelligence professional. I have seen the lights blinking red in terms of what Mr. Trump has done and is doing and is bringing this country down on the global stage and he’s fueling and feeding divisiveness in our country. He continually lies to the American people. The type of things that he is doing, I think I need to speak out. So I have been speaking put rather forcefully because I think it is important to do so. I don’t believe I’m being political at all. I am not a Republican. I am not a Democrat. And many members of the Congress over the years who have security clearances have spoken out rather forcefully against whoever was in the Oval Office if they weren’t from the same political party. So now as a private citizen they are telling me that I should not do that? I am sorry, I am just fundamentally disagree with them.”
As the Mueller investigation accidentally uncovers more and more Democrat misdeeds, Deep State operatives such as John Brennan, former Communist Muslim CIA Director are becoming increasingly desperate, yelling louder and louder about Trump’s supposed guilt in a vain attempt to deflect from their own.
Now, as the noose of evidence slowly tightens, Obama’s Deep State operatives are beginning to turn on each other.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Sunday that he thinks former CIA Director John Brennan’s rhetoric is becoming an issue “in and of itself.”
“John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself,” Clapper said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “John is subtle like a freight train and he’s gonna say what’s on his mind.”
Clapper’s comments came in response to an op-ed penned by Brennan in The New York Times this week, in which he wrote that President Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
Clapper said he empathized with Brennan, but voiced concerns for Brennan’s fiery rhetoric toward Trump and his 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,” Clapper said.
Brennan’s claims drew criticism from some in the intelligence community who said the timing was suspect.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) on Thursday took aim at 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,” Burr said.
Burr added that Trump has the “full authority” to rescind security clearance if the statements were “purely political and based on conjecture.”
Burr’s reaction echoes those of other Republicans who have described Brennan’s actions as inappropriate.
“He’s acted like a butthead. He’s acted like a political hack and not a national security professional,” Sen. Joe Kennedy (R-La.) told reporters.
Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance last week, saying that
his “lying and recent conduct characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary is wholly inconsistent with access to the nation’s most closely held secrets and facilities, the very aim of our adversaries, which is to sow division and chaos.”
The move that was criticized by suspected Deep State operatives was seen as a punitive measure against one of Trump’s most outspoken critics.
Perhaps exposing their allegiance to the Communist Deep State, more than 60 former intelligence officials denounced Trump’s decision, stating that ex-intelligence officials should have the right to express their opinions on national security matters without punishment.
“All of us believe it is critical to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure,” the group wrote in a letter obtained by CNN. “But we believe equally strongly that former government officials have the right to express their unclassified views on what they see as critical national security issues without fear of being punished for doing so.”
Clapper this week also criticized the Trump administration for its decision, joining more than a dozen high-ranking intelligence officials who signed a letter censuring the president for the move.
Are we seeing the beginning of the end of the Deep State cabal that has embedded itself into our government? Only time will tell.
