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:

“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.

Bannon Testimony has DOJ Spooked, with Department Pushing to Silence Media Magnate

Cowards.

Published

on

While some Democrats have applauded the boldness of the select committee investigating January 6th, there are undercurrents of concern about the group’s actions beginning to surface.

For starters, their willingness to call some of the right wing media’s most potent orators to the witness stand, where they will almost certainly befuddle and obliterate those who seek to do harm to their reputations.

In other words:  Subpoenaing Roger Stone, Alex Jones, and Steve Bannon is likely an exampled of the committee biting off more than they can realistically chew.

It seems as though the Department of Justice agrees with this assessment, and they are taking action to prevent the Democrats on the committee from embarrassing themselves.

Prosecutors have accused former President Donald Trump’s ex-adviser Steve Bannon of attempting to try his criminal case through the media instead of in court and have asked a judge to limit what Bannon can release publicly throughout the case, according to a new filing in DC District Court.

Bannon is trying to convince a judge not to bar him and his lawyers from sharing documents he receives from the Justice Department with the public before his trial.

The DOJ prosecutors said in the filing Sunday some of those records must stay private while the case is pending, because they include internal communications between congressional staffers and notes of FBI interviews with witnesses who could testify against Bannon at trial.

The DOJ would rather work in darkness.

“Allowing the defendant to publicly disseminate reports of witness statements will have the collateral effect of witness tampering because it will expose witnesses to public commentary on their potential testimony before trial and allow a witness to review summaries of other witnesses’ statements recounting the same event or events,” the prosecutors wrote on Sunday.

The move reeks of cowardice on behalf of the Biden administration, and flies in the face of transparency and understanding.
