Clapper Tosses Brennan Under the Bus?

John Brennan is becoming such an embarrassment to the left that even Barack Obama’s one-time intelligence chief, James Clapper, is saying that Brennan’s big mouth is becoming a problem.

Brennan has been caught in lie after lie and this past weekend he was seen trying to pretend he didn’t say that Trump has committed treason after he said Trump committed treason.

According to The Hill Clapper seems to wish Brennan would just shut the heck up:

Trending: WATCH: Omar Lands At Minnesota Airport to Hero’s Welcome, Says Somalia Is ‘My Country’

“John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself,” Clapper said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “John is subtle like a freight train and he’s gonna say what’s on his mind.”

Clapper’s comments came in response to an op-ed penned by Brennan in The New York Times this week, in which he wrote that President Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

Clapper said he empathized with Brennan, but voiced concerns for Brennan’s fiery rhetoric toward Trump and his administration.

“I think that the common denominator among all of us [in the intelligence community] that have been speaking up … is genuine concern about the jeopardy and threats to our institutions,” Clapper said.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) also slammed Brennan for his lies:

“If his statement is based on intelligence he has seen since leaving office, it constitutes an intelligence breach. If he has some other personal knowledge of or evidence of collusion, it should be disclosed to the special counsel, not The New York Times,” Burr said.

Burr added that Trump has the “full authority” to rescind security clearance if the statements were “purely political and based on conjecture.”

Of course, the latest squealing from Brennan arose after President Trump legally cancelled the former CIA chief’s security clearance. Because of Trump’s action, Breannan can now no longer legally obtain briefings about high priority government information.

Brennan has idiotically claimed that losing his security clearance is a way Trump is trampling his free speech.

This is a flat out lie, though. Brennan seems to feel that his security clearance is somehow a “right” like the First Amendment. But this is incorrect. A security clearance is a government conferred privilege, not any sort of right.

But, all you have to do is follow the money to realize why Brennan is screeching like a stuck pig over this whole thing. You see, losing his security clearance will hurt his finances when companies and groups won’t hire him for his services because he no longer has access to government secrets.

His wallet is the ONLY reason he’s mad for losing his clearance. It has nothing to do with free speech.

Trump Destroys Washington Post For ‘Fake News’ About Battle With ‘The Squad’

This is why people love Trump.

Published

on

President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday and Monday to do what he does best and completely annihilate the Washington Post over “fake news” report about his battle against radical leftist congresswomen now known as “The Squad.” The Washington Post plastered as story on their front page with the headline, “A Twitter storm and its aftermath,” which takes a deep look at the aftermath of Trump’s “racist” tweets telling Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley to “go back” to their countries of origin if they hate America. However, it’s important to note that such a statement wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense seeing as how only Omar was born outside of the United States. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “The Washington Post Story, about my speech in North Carolina and tweet, with its phony sources who do not exist, is Fake News,” Trump tweeted Sunday. “The only thing people were talking about is the record setting crowd and the tremendous enthusiasm, far greater than the Democrats. You’ll see in 2020!” He followed that tweet by repeating a phrase that’s become one of his refrains about how the media treats him: “Presidential Harassment!” The president then once again emphasized why he has singled out the Squad: “I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!” On Monday, the president tweeted the following: “The Amazon Washington Post front page story yesterday was total Fake News. They said ‘Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four Congresswomen.’ Now really, does that sound like…

Justice Department Watchdog Claims To Have Evidence Comey Secretly Investigated Trump

Comey’s a total snake.

Published

on

When it comes to the investigation into possible Russia collusion concerning President Trump’s 2016 campaign, there’s a lot of unanswered questions, especially when it comes to the folks who were deadset on pushing this narrative in the media and tarnishing the president’s reputation. One of those questions has to do with why former FBI Director James Comey was privately telling Trump that he was not the subject of an ongoing probe, while also refusing to say that same thing out in public. That refusal is what sparked Comey’s termination from the FBI, the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and the whole charge that the president obstructed justice. Well, it seems there might be an answer emerging from the shadows, thanks to a Justice Department watchdog. via Real Clear Investigations: Now an answer is emerging. Sources tell RealClearInvestigations that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will soon file a report with evidence indicating that Comey was misleading the president. Even as he repeatedly assured Trump that he was not a target, the former director was secretly trying to build a conspiracy case against the president, while at times acting as an investigative agent. Two U.S. officials briefed on the inspector general’s investigation of possible FBI misconduct said Comey was essentially “running a covert operation against” the president, starting with a private “defensive briefing” he gave Trump just weeks before his inauguration. They said Horowitz has examined high-level FBI text messages and other communications indicating Comey was actually conducting a “counterintelligence assessment” of Trump during that January 2017 meeting in New York. Along with the addition of notes of his meetings and the phone calls he conducted with Trump to the official FBI case file, Comey also had an agent at the White House that reported to FBI headquarters with information…
