“I’m just a gullible dumb-dumb so nothing is my fault.”
That pretty much sums up the defense of the former head of the CIA – the single most powerful intelligence agency in the world. John Brennan has been relentlessly beating the Trump impeachment drum for the last two years, adding fuel to the dangerous fires that were the now disproven Trump-Russia collusion hoax. Mr. Brennan is now claiming he might have received “bad information” on the matter, implying then that he shouldn’t be to blame for helping push an attempted coup of a duly-elected President of the United States.
Former CIA chief John O. Brennan now says his months of attacks on President Trump may have been based on “bad information.”
One of the president’s harshest critics had a muted tone on Monday as he discussed special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” No evidence was found to support the claim that Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia.
“Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was,” Mr. Brennan told host Joe Scarborough. “I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government over our election.”
Mr. Brennan said in December 2018, for instance, that Mr. Trump should prepare for the “forthcoming exposure of your malfeasance & corruption.”
“We need an actual leader — our Nation’s future is at stake,” he tweeted Dec. 31.
Brennan’s words come within hours of his Obama-era intelligence agency counterpart, James Clapper’s interview with CNN where he put much of the Trump-Russia hoax at the feet of former POTUS Barack Obama.
The Deep State is circling the wagons and whispers suggest a few sacrificial lambs will be put out there to help insulate the more powerful players who were actually responsible for the attempted coup of a sitting president. They’ll need the help of some Deep State Republicans to do so. See: Lindsey Graham.
