Former CIA Official Backtracks In Face Of Report

There have been many people who have spoken out against President Trump during the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. Now however, many of them are having to eat their words as the report clears Trump of any collusion and few have been more outspoken than former CIA Director John Brennan.

It’s quite stunning that a former leading intelligence official could be so ignorant of the truth while being so vocal about it.

While on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Brennan tried to explain himself to Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. Here’s how it went:

Scarborough: I’m just curious, Mr. Director, how surprised were you by the findings yesterday, by the conclusions that were drawn, and I’m just curious, did you receive bad information throughout this process like so many of us did, that there was more there than ended up in the report regarding collusion?

Brennan: Well, I don’t know if I received bad information, but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was. I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government over our election. I think that is good news for the country. And so I still point to things that were done publicly, or efforts to try to have conversations with the Russians that were inappropriate. But, I’m not all that surprised that the high bar of criminal conspiracy was not met. 

I am surprised at that second part, obstruction of justice, in terms of how it came out. I don’t know whether or not Bob Mueller wanted the attorney general to pronounce on that issue. Or whether or not Bob Mueller felt that was for Congress and the American people to determine whether the weight of the information indicates that Donald Trump did try to obstruct justice. So, there are some surprises there, and that’s why I think getting to the full Mueller report is the best way to get some of these, if not all of these, questions answered.

Of note is that Brennan claims to be unsurprised that no criminal charges were brought against Trump. This coming from the guy who tweeted both that “Trump’s claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash” and that Trump is “treasonous,” “imbecilic,” and “wholly in the pocket of Putin.” If Brennan is hoping people will just let slide how overwhelmingly wrong he has been, he has another thing coming.

  1. This man has the gall and testes of a burglar. He is and has been wrong about just about everything including his voting for Gus Hall, the Communist candidate for president of the USA. How did Obama decide to appoint a Communist to the head of our CIA?
    It says a lot about the last administration and the critics of President Trump.

  2. Brennan is the traitor to our nation and deserve to be hauled before a federal grand jury. The alleged Russian incursion into our election process started under his and Obama’s watch. What did they do about it? NOTHING! So who’s the guilty party here?

  3. Totally Ignorance Agencies NOT Intelligence Agencies! It’s time for Arrests and Military Tribunals of ALL FBI, DOJ, Obama Administration, DNC, Demoncrap Polititians that committed Treason, Terrorism, Espionage, Domestic Enimies of America that demanded Foreign Invasion Of America, ENSLAVEMENT of American Citizens For Foreign Illegals, Accessories To Murder Of American Citizens By Foreign Invasion On American Soil, Fraudulently Swore Oathes Of Offices To Defend The Constatution, Protect And Serve American Citizens and Decieved Americans By Demanding Against Constatution and American Citizens. Their Political Positions Are Null And Void Immedietly!

  4. I sure pray to God that Brennan is investigated for his hateful, treadsonous lies. He had a lot to answer for and I pray he serves consequences. Big consequences…orange.

  5. Brennan was central, actively moved the documents/Russian Dossier, totally avoiding the Woods Doctrine.. to prevent fake info(Hillary Smear material) into the secret FISA court system. He is going down, HARD!

  6. Brennan has clearly demonstrated his incompetence and makes me wonder how many more of these flunkies are serving in important government positions. The elimination of any pension from the government would be a good start .Both the CIA and FBI have shown their
    lack of credibility!

  7. Brennan is the lowest form of pond scum, even by the “standards” of the inept & corrupt Obama admin.
    He secretly converted to Islam while in Saudi Arabia, which he now lies about,along with pretty much everything else.
    Spent his last few months in office actively disseminating the fraudulent “Russia dossier” & has constantly criticized & threatened Pres.Trump.
    All in all, a totally disgusting toad–which he also resembles!
