Treachery, thy name is Brennan

“[Former CIA director John O.] Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, meets the textbook definition of a useful idiot for the Russians. At the height of the Cold War, he cast his vote in 1976 for Gus Hall, the American Communist Party’s presidential candidate. He refused to take his Oath of Office on the Bible during his swearing-in ceremony.

“Brennan deplored Ronald Reagan’s description of the Soviet Union as an evil empire and joined other leftists in demanding that he pursue détente with Marxist thugs who make Putin look like a piker. During his time as Obama’s CIA Director he sanitized the concept of jihad and constantly whitewashed Islamic terrorism.

“Now that he’s left the armchair comfort of the CIA he has resumed the radicalism of his youth by calling for civil disobedience and the overthrow of a duly elected president.”

UPDATE: Kimberley A. Strassel in the WSJ: “Mr. Comey stands accused of flouting the rules, breaking the chain of command, abusing investigatory powers. Yet it seems far likelier that the FBI’s Trump investigation was a function of arrogance and overconfidence than some partisan plot. No such case can be made for Mr. Brennan…by his own testimony, he as an Obama-Clinton partisan was pushing information to the FBI and pressuring it to act.”

    Today’s presser addressed this with Trump saying he was going to revoke a bunch of clearances. He must have hit a bullseye with all of the shocked bitching and moaning.

  2. Is it really treachery when the evidence of one’s proclivities and past is there, but some folks just refuse to see it?

    It’s on us for electing Bronco Bama. And you know I don’t mean “us” us, I mean the ignorant-ass portion of our citizenry.

    Stanley,
    Their is no reason for these people to keep their clearance when no longer in a position where a clearance is a necessity. Yes I understand they maybe recalled to consult/help current government figures, but they can always be rebriefed read back in etc for that purpose.
    I think these current people have a lot of friends still serving who supply these characters with classified material which they then leak to their many contacts in the media. Still having a clearance doesn’t completely ok this but it muddies the legal water. By revoking these people’s clearances their inside contacts would be clearly breaking the law by passing classified material to them, not to mention the illegality of possession of said material.

  4. The security clearances are “a valuable commodity” whose revoking would be “a financial penalty” according to an NBC reporter: https://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2018/07/24/nbc-reporter-trump-will-cause-financial-harm-to-clapper-brennan-by-revoking-security-clearances/
    Not to mention how extra hard reporters will have to work without their leaks.

  5. Brennan is quite a character indeed. His deep sympathy to Islamists of all stripes is also not a secret.
