File this under, “What Took So Long?”! Finally, former CIA Director John Brennan has been blocked from accessing classified information.
Brennan found this out when working on his new memoir.
The Washington Times reports:
He writes in his forthcoming book, Undaunted: My Fight Against America’s Enemies, at Home and Abroad, that after months of “haggling” he discovered the CIA was abiding by the directive Trump gave in August 2018 “that purportedly forbids anyone in the intelligence community from sharing classified information with me.”
The White House confirmed the directive was being enforced, which is news considering the New York Times reported in May of last year that the president never revoked Brennan’s security clearance.
“The President has constitutional authority to control access to classified information, which he exercised here in view of Mr. Brennan’s erratic behavior and the President’s belief that access to classified information should be solely for the benefit of the government and the American people,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.
Of course we knew Trump cut Brennan off long ago. Brennan’s bringing it up now in a pathetic effort to sell books. This will end much like Clinton’s book tour.
DC is a strange town, and operates much like prison. The rules for both change once you’re in.
For example, in prison you can get shanked for looking at somebody wrong. And no matter what your feelings about race-relations are on the outside, you don’t “mix” inside the joint.
Sadly, DC is a similar ideological prison. And because Leftists dominated it for so long, they poisoned the place. Bureaucrats traded the right thing for saving face. Until Trump took office.
As Kevin Jackson wrote:
President Trump returned decency to DC and the White House. Obama feigned decency, but he exhibited none. Obama brought Leftist dogma on steroids to DC. Leftists became so emboldened with Obama election and policy positions, they openly committed crimes.
On the other hand, Donald Trump has no ideological dog in the fight. A pragmatist, Trump wants what’s right for America; and particularly what’s right for taxpaying citizens. That’s why Leftists hate him.
Clearly, Trump’s tactics have made a difference. A big difference.
Draining the swamp requires lots of stealth and the ability to discern people. Trump is a master at both. So every time Trump fires somebody, Leftists freak. To quote Queen, “Another one bites the dust!”.
And when Trump hires one of his own, Leftists predictably scream. Another job that won’t go to a swamp rat.
President Trump put DC in unfamiliar territory: Leftists are no longer in charge.
Real whistle-blowers are talking. The media won’t report it. Meanwhile, AG Barr and John Durham remain quiet about their activities, for the most part. But something is afoot.
When a former staffer for Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan turns on his boss, you take notice. And according to investigative journalist John Solomon, Former CIA Moscow station Chief Daniel Hoffman laid into his former boss at Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan.
“One of the things that bothers me the most is when someone kind of starts with their answer, and then they try to twist the facts to fit it,” Hoffman said Tuesday. “I saw Brennan do that when I served under him CIA. And I saw him do it when he was, you know, a contributor at MSNBC accusing the president of treason with nothing whatsoever to back it up.”
It gets worse for Brennan.
According to Solomon, the former station chief said that Brennan’s behavior related to the Russia collusion narrative was not much different than what he witnessed during his time serving under him at the CIA.
“There were policies he supported, whether it was the policy in Syria or Iran. And when you told him something that would force him to challenge his assumptions, his response was just to get mad at you and not really want to hear what you have to say,” Hoffman said.
Undoubtedly, Brennan is a hot head who never should have headed the CIA. But Obama loves incompetence, thus the selection.
Hoffman continued calling out Brennan’s public behavior since leaving his CIA post, an “extraordinary dereliction of duty.”
Now we know Brennan is a traitor. Under the watchful eye of Barack Obama, Brennan crafted what he hoped would be the undoing of Donald Trump.
Now it’s time for Brennan to face the music. But he’s hoping to sell a few paperbacks before he pays the piper.
