Skip to comments.John Brennan: I will speak out until integrity returns to the White House

My first visit to the Oval Office came in October 1990, when I was a 35-year-old CIA officer.
Over the next quarter-century, I returned to the Oval Office several hundred times during the administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The jitters that accompanied my first Oval Office visit dissipated over time, but the respect, awe and admiration I held for the office of the presidency and the incumbents never waned. The presidents I directly served were not perfect, and I didnt agree with all of their policy choices. But I never doubted that each treated their solemn responsibility to lead our nation with anything less than the seriousness, intellectual rigor and principles that it deserved. Many times, I heard them dismiss the political concerns of their advisers, saying, I dont care about my politics, its the right thing to do.
The esteem with which I held the presidency was dealt a serious blow when Donald Trump took office. Almost immediately, I began to see a startling aberration from the remarkable, though human, presidents I had served. Mr. Trumps lifelong preoccupation with aggrandizing himself seemed to intensify in office, and he quickly leveraged his 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. address and his Twitter handle to burnish his brand and misrepresent reality.
Presidents throughout the years have differed in their approaches to policy, based on political platforms, ideologies and individual beliefs. Mr. Trump, however, has shown highly abnormal behavior by lying routinely to the American people without compunction, intentionally fueling divisions in our country and actively working to degrade the imperfect but critical institutions that serve us.

Liars need to keep talking.
Its akin to bailing out a sinking rowboat.
When I read the above, I couldn't help but think of Obama. Literally, the Left accuses the Right of the thing they're guilty of...
Or at least until you swing.
Brennan. Integrity. Naw, those words dont work in the same sentence.
This communist muslim would only have been appointed CIA Director by an ineligible communist muslim usurper.
He can keep flapping his yap from Gitmo, where he’s going.
Let me get this straight. First he has his people break in and ‘sanitize’ Obama’s birth records and passport records. The employee that tries to out him ends up dead in a parking lot. Then he lies about just about everything, and supports Muslim terrorists and ISIS. Finally, he spies on a US political election and uses all the powers of the CIA and other security apparatus against the people of the United States..........
AND TRUMP IS THE PROBLEM.
ROFLOL....you can’t even make this stuff up.
John Brennan, first Muslim Head of the CIA, talking about INTEGRITY??? Leftist Liars gone LIE! Its all they have.........
Oh sure. Because the firs thing Americans think of when they hear the word “integrity” is Democrat presidents.
Not even the same paragraph.
Are "jitters" anything like "tingles"? Misguided jerk.
You can hear Brennan’s fear of Sessions’ DOJ in every word he penned.
John Brennan would not know integrity if it walked up and gave him a fetch upside the head. He has built his entire back story around a lie, and he cannot let it go.
Alternate realities allow for alternate sets of facts, but the alternate reality is not the one the rest of us are living in.
So says the Islamist, Marxist fascist.
Weird how his moose limb influence is rarely mentioned.
What a load of crap! These people have sold this nation out to a bunch of globalist overlords, and they have the gall to talk about INTEGRITY!
Sooo glad this guy no longer has power.
Building a gallows for you would be a good first step towards that.
