Deep State former CIA Director John Brennan is unhinged and in deep trouble (Video)

US President Donald Trump’s battle with John Brennan escalated to new levels last weekend, when Deep State former CIA Director John Brennan foolishly stated to NBC that he is contemplating a lawsuit against the Trump administration after his security clearance was revoked.

Zerohedge reports that in a Sunday interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Brennan blasted Trump for what he calls an “egregious abuse of power and authority,” adding that he’s “been contacted by a  number of lawyers” who have advised him on legal options – including the possibility of suing the Trump administration for an injunction to stop more clearances from being revoked.

In true Trump fashion, the US President hit back at Brennan’s empty threat, tweeting…

“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!”

Trump followed up with this tweet…

“Everybody wants to keep their Security Clearance, it’s worth great prestige and big dollars, even board seats, and that is why certain people are coming forward to protect Brennan. It certainly isn’t because of the good job he did! He is a political “hack.””

On Wednesday, the White House announced that it was revoking Brennan’s clearance, and that the status of other former officials was under review. Critics have accused the White House of trying to silence political opponents. “Trump says he is reviewing security clearances for nine other individuals: James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr. Some have been publicly critical of the president, while others are linked to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference,” wrote the Washington Post on Wednesday.

Blowback

Brennan has taken flack over his recent outbursts, including accusing President Trump of treason (which MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow of all people took him to task over).

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.”

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 politicial and based on conjecture.”

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC‘s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Brennan defiantly stood behind his statement that Trump committed treason during the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which he called “nothing short of treasonous,” before walking it back moments later.

“After Helsinki, you were stark, and even a little bit scary in your criticism of his behavior. You said it rose to treason,” said Maddow.

“I said it was nothing short of treasonous,” replied Brennan.

Maddow pushed back: “In this current controversy, that specific comment has been singled out by a number of people as a comment that maybe, by you, crossed the line, that was maybe –.”

“Crossed what line?” Brennan responded.

Maddow said that she wasn’t going to question Brennan’s right to his remarks, though then asked “But do you stand by that consideration, and can you explain, can you elaborate what you mean by treasonous? It’s a very serious allegation.”

Brennan answered: “I know what the Russians did in interfering in the election. I have 100% confidence in what they did. And for Mr. Trump to stand on that stage in Helsinki, with all the world’s eyes upon him, and to basically [say] he wouldn’t — he doesn’t understand why would the Russians interfere in the election. He’s given Mr. Putin and the Russians a pass time after time after time, and he keeps referring to this whole investigation as a witch hunt, as bogus, as — and to me, this was an attack against the foundational principle of our great republic, which is, the right of all Americans to choose their elected leaders. And for Mr. Trump to so cavalierly just dismiss that, yes, sometimes my Irish comes out, and — in my tweets, and I did say that it rises to and exceeds the level of high crimes and misdemeanors and is nothing short of treasonous. … I didn’t mean that he committed treason, but it was a term that I used, nothing short of treasonous.

Could not happen to a nicer person (sarc). Would love him to go to court, be laughed out of court, after all his dirty washing was exposed.

On the wall just inside the CIA HQ is this: John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free

What a crock.

Revocation of security clearance should be automatic when an official leaves office and has no more need for it.

So, “he’s “been contacted by a number of lawyers” — I’m sure the ambulance chasers have smelled blood.

Brennan’s dementia is a symptom of the general demented and hysterical CIA that panicked at the rise of Trump before the election. They set a trap and the democrats walked right into it (republicans were already trapped). The CIA followed their usual operational procedure to set up some patsies in case it blew up, in this case the FBI and DOJ. The Atlantic Council also played a role.

Brennan mentioned during a interview that some corporate boards (such as for defense contractors) require members to have a security clearance, so Trump’s decision means he would not be eligible to serve in those positions. Brennan admitted losing the security clearance would mean he was no longer eligible for corporate board positions with defense contractors and other related industries that require
the clearance. These security clearance are worth Millions of Dollars to the holders once out of government service.

As Colonel Pat Lang and others on his blog have pointed out, no one has a “right” to a security clearance. They are granted at the requirement of the job and can be revoked at any time for any reason at the pleasure of the President or anyone delegated by the President in the chain of command. Therefore Brennan has absolutely no legal leg to stand on with his lawsuit threat and any lawyer familiar with Federal law would tell him that. So his lawsuit is nothing more than PR chest pounding.

Brennan is lucky he’s not locked in a cell for the rest of his life. He’s a professional liar, having lied to Congress numerous times as well as presiding over some of the darkest actions of the so-called “war on terror”. He’s a hack and this event shows the hubris that former intelligence deep-staters posses when exposed to the light of day.
