    “Jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam”.John Brennan John Brennan is all over the news, playing the victim for having his security clearance pulled. It's obvious from his record that he should have never had any access to classified information considering his toxic and radical views. After Helsinki, Brennan accused President Trump of treason. He's since doubled down on the accusation. But if you want to see treason, look at his own past comments. As I discuss in today's article on Twitter's censoring of David Horowitz when he tried to discuss Brennan's record and Islamic anti-Semitism.

    In March, at the Council on Foreign Relations, CIA Director John Brennan was asked by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell whether the CIA had illegally accessed Senate Intelligence Committee staff computers “to thwart an investigation by the committee into” the agency’s past interrogation techniques. The accusation had been made earlier that day by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who said the CIA had “violated the separation-of-powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution --SNIP-- An apology and an internal review board might suffice if this were Brennan or intelligence leaders’ first offense, but the track record is far from spotless. In 2011, Brennan...
  • Brennan's claim that he only heard about the 'Russia dossier' in the news doesn't wash

    Actual headline: Brennan caught in another LIE? Claim he heard about Russia ‘dossier’ via ‘news reports’ doesn’t WASH Deep State: On Monday, disgraced Obama CIA Director John Brennan, who recently had his security clearance revoked by POTUS Donald Trump, said he never heard anything about the infamous “Russia dossier” until he saw it in news reports. That’s the same excuse his boss, Obama, used to give when he claimed to have no additional knowledge about the plethora of scandals that occurred on his watch. But is Brennan’s claim true? Doesn’t seem like it.

    Former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director John Brennan told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Sunday’s Meet the Press that he learned since retiring that Russians began hacking Hillary Clinton’s emails on the day Donald Trump joked about it in July 2016. The problem: that widely-cited claim is untrue — a piece of “fake news” evidence, drawn from one of the indictments by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, that has fueled unfounded theories that Trump colluded with the Russians during the presidential election. Last week, Brennan wrote an op-ed in the New York Times in which he confirmed Trump’s joke at a...

    Former CIA director John Brennan has been responsible for egregious errors in service of Obama to politicize this key agency. He has been a horrible CIA director. 1.Brennan oversaw the awful Iran deal and lied about Benghazi and Libya Brennan oversaw the Iran deal. It was a horrendous deal, so bad that Ben Rhodes had to lie to sell it which he admitted to. He was right there for Obama all those 11 times he catered to the world’s worst dictators, including the Ayatollah. Brennan covered up the truth about Benghazi and Libya in general. As Foreign Policy Magazine wrote,...

    A "clarification" from former CIA director John Brennan.  He called Trump's performance during a press conference with Vladimir Putin "nothing short of treason" but now claims he didn't mean that Trump committed treason. Glad we got that cleared up, John. The Hill: Brennan clarified the comment during an interview Friday, after MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said Brennan said the press conference "rose to treason." The former CIA director disputed the characterization of his "treason" tweet, saying that he felt compelled to make the comment after Trump sided with Putin's denials of Russia's election interference. "And for Mr. Trump to so cavalierly so dismiss...

    National security adviser John Bolton says in addition to Russia, there's "sufficient national security concern" that China, Iran, and North Korea are meddling in the 2018 U.S. elections. "Those are the four countries that we're most concerned about," he said in an interview with ABC's Martha Raddatz. Full interview followed by transcript: JOHN BOLTON, NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR: Well, this is a decision for the president. It’s something that I think was originally suggested by Senator Rand Paul, perhaps others. I was aware of it, along with I think most of the president’s other senior national security advisors a few weeks...

    President Trump was correct in pulling back the security clearance held by former CIA Director John Brennan. It should have happened under Barack Obama. Former CIA Director John Brennan has weaponized national security status and has uncharacteristically been on a mission trashing the Trump administration while defending the Obama administration and its meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign that included trying to place a spy inside the Trump campaign. I say uncharacteristically because most of his predecessors who left the position faded into anonymity rarely to be heard from again. In fact I had to go back and look up...

    In backing John Brennan's right to keep his top-secret security clearance, despite his having charged the president with treason, the U.S. intel community has chosen to fight on indefensible terrain. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper seemed to recognize that Sunday when he conceded that ex-CIA Director Brennan had the subtlety of "a freight train" and his rhetoric had become "an issue in and of itself." After Donald Trump's Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin, Brennan had called the president's actions "nothing short of treasonous." The battle is now engaged. Trump cannot back down. He must defy and defeat the...

    In the Aug. 17 interview, Brennan was discussing concerns about Russian contacts with U.S. citizens during the 2016 presidential election. Despite Brennan’s apparent concerns, he admitted that these contacts may have been completely innocent—there was no proof that these same U.S. citizens had been successfully leveraged by Russian efforts. But that surveillance moved forward anyway. This surveillance may have occurred before and after the election. From Brennan’s interview: BRENNAN: When I left office on January 20th of 2017, I had unresolved questions in my mind about whether or not any of those U.S. persons were working in support of the...

    The establishment media did not care when the Obama administration called for the aggressive scrubbing of security clearances back in 2013. According to our media today, revoking security clearances of those who are no longer in government is the stuff of banana republics, of dictators, and a full-blown assault against the First Amendment. But when President Obama sought to do the exact same on a massive scale, the media hardly blinked and the news only earned dutiful coverage. “W.H. Looks to Scrub Clearance List,” was the November 21, 2013, headline at the far-left Politico. In a directive obtained by POLITICO,...

    President Trump had every reason to revoke Ex-CIA John Brennan’s security clearance. It should have been done a long time ago, considering his past testimony in which he stated “no evidence of Russian collusion.” The MSM is having a field day with this latest action by President Trump, and, of course, John Brennan is pouting like a spoiled little boy. He got caught by the President of the United States one too many times with the botched Russian collusion story. Lest he forget he is a CIA Director no more, but Donald Trump is the sitting President of the United...

    Victor Davis Hanson, as he so often does, gives us an excellent and concise bird’s-eye view of where we stand with the intelligence community: [T]hose who are warning of Russian collusion efforts to warp an election now work for agencies that in the recent past were doing precisely what they now rightly accuse the Russians of doing. The damage that Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and others have done to the reputations of the agencies they ran will live on well after their tenures are over. For once, I think he underestimates the duration and intensity of the rottenness. It isn’t just...

Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Brennan said he’s been contacted by a number of lawyers about the possibility of an injunction in the wake of Trump’s move to revoke his clearance and threaten nine others who have been critical of the president or are connected to the Russia probe. “If my clearances and my reputation as I’m being pulled through the mud now, if that’s the price we’re going...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan risked damaging the intelligence community with his anti-Trump comments, retired Adm. Michael Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told "Fox News Sunday." Mullen's comments came as several former intelligence officials appeared on Sunday talk shows, including Brennan -- who floated the possibility of taking legal action against the president. "I think John's an extraordinary servant of the country, but I think he has been incredibly critical of the president, and I think that has put him in a political place which actually does more damage for the intelligence community -- which is...

    “If there is a scintilla of evidence that the president colluded with the Russians and Brennan had that evidence, the entire world would already know,” Scott said during a Fox News appearance with host Neil Cavuto. In a Thursday op-ed published in the New York Times, Brennan based his claim that President Trump colluded with Russia on the fact that then-candidate Trump “publicly called upon Russia to find the missing emails of Mrs. Clinton” during the 2016 campaign. “By issuing such a statement, Mr. Trump was not only encouraging a foreign nation to collect intelligence against a United States citizen,...
