It is disappointing to see these fellows on the same stage as Wolf Blitzer given all that CNN has done, but it’s not a surprise. Sadly.
It should be noted that Mr. Brennan, head of the CIA under Obama, in 1976 voted for the Communist candidate for president. We all have youthful indiscretions but that a former head of the CIA once voted for Gus Hall is pretty crazy. Jimmy Carter wasn’t “liberal” enough.
And now he’s asserting this?
In the most vocal opposition to president Donald Trump yet, former CIA Director John Brennan said that if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch.
“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.
