Skip to comments.John Brennan Accuses Trump of Conspiring With the Saudis

Former CIA Director John Brennan suggested Wednesday night that President Trump is conspiring with Saudi leaders to make up a story about journalist Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance. The Saudi journalist was last seen on October 2 walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Turkey says the Saudis killed him, but Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud deny the charge. Trump suggested that he has no reason not to believe him and cited our economic relationship.
That left Brennan with this theory.
So theyve been working to concoct a story thats going to stand up to the scrutiny that will be immediately put on it," Brennan said on MSNBC. "How can they claim then that Mohammed bin Salman had no responsibility whatsoever. Is he looking for the scapegoats inside of Saudi Arabia? Has he already taken action against them?"
Still, if U.S. intelligence has damning information about Salman's role in Khashoggi's disappearance, "his story is going to fall apart, Brennan said. That, he said, is why it's so important that the CIA and others brief the House and Senate intelligence committees so that they can "hold the administration's feet to the fire."
Congress is going to be integral in this, Brennan added. "Because if Mr. Trump and others are going to try in fact to gloss over this somehow," lawmakers won't let that fly.
On Twitter, Brennan said the U.S.-Saudi strategic alliance cannot prevent swift justice on the Saudi government.
Brennan has long been an outspoken Trump critic, condemning the president's rhetoric and policymaking decisions every chance he gets.
Earlier this summer, Trump revoked Brennan's security clearance.
He is a “Death to America” Democrat
Why does this whole thing sound like a Kerry/Soros/Iranian setup, for propo purposes??
They're already slandering John Miller for having the temerity to point out that Khashoggi wasn't the tender-hearted, social justice warrior the media has made him out to be.
Good point, that’s exactly what it sounds like.
It’s too bad commie Brennan didn’t take Kashoggi’s place (Yet).
If people needed anymore evidence this whole Khashoggi thing was a deep-state op....Look no further than this POS.
Now ask yourself why all the rinos and neverTrumpers jumped to the mic to condemn the killing of some muzzie in a foreign land...That’s right.
IIRC Brennan’s one of several people who Joe DiGenova says will soon need a very good criminal lawyer.
And Muslim Brotherhood.
....this muzzie azzhole conspired with Hilda and Odungo to sell US Uranium to the Russians so they all could get rich...
And Muslim Brotherhood.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
A Saudi journalist walks into the Saudi consulate in Turkey and does not walk out. This is somehow Trump’s fault? And further why should we even care other than on a basic human rights basis? Which the Saudis have been sorely lacking in since the founding of their country (and long before).
And now it’s being reported that he is not a legal resident, he just had a visitor visa, and had moved to Turkey. So how is it our business?
same old mantra ‘ conspiring, colluding, obstructing . oh my’
I hope DiGenova’s right, this nutjob should be locked up.
A delicious memory of “Fargo” comes immediately to mind, especially if pigs were added to the scene in recognition of his real religion..
I hope Brennan takes a canoe trip down the Potomac.
Do Mr. Colby proud.
