“Brennan also fed the public wildly inaccurate details about the Osama bin Laden raid in 2011, and despite condemning leaks of classified information from others, he has often leaks classified information himself to suit his own needs. This is not the type of guy who is going to resign because of some report he doesn’t like; this is the type of spy who apologizes even though he’s not sorry, who lies because he doesn’t like to tell the truth.”
Brennan is absolutely something else. A man who was given too much power and who is now running scared.
Any poker player worth his or her salt can see the tack Brennan has taken with Trump. He’s playing at Trump because he knows that’s the only play he has. He is hoping to bluster forward because he appears to have nothing behind his attacks. A front line that works until it is broken basically. He hopes to make it to the “blue wave” mid-term elections. Then maybe he can cobble something together.
Remember that in 2014 the CIA was called out for SPYING ON THE SENATE and according the The Guardian Brennan lied.
It is my understanding that the statute of limitations for lying to the Senate is 5 years. The reason I know this is because General Clapper, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence lied to the Senate just over 5 years ago and got off. It looks like Brennan is still in the risk zone. Something should be done about it. He shouldn’t get away with it. Particularly in light of the current (what appears to be) nonsense.

As reports emerged Thursday that an internal investigation by the Central Intelligence Agency’s inspector general found that the CIA “improperly” spied on US Senate staffers when researching the CIA’s dark history of torture, it was hard to conclude anything but the obvious: John Brennan blatantly lied to the American public. Again.
“The facts will come out,” Brennan told NBC News in March after Senator Dianne Feinstein issued a blistering condemnation of the CIA on the Senate floor, accusing his agency of hacking into the computers used by her intelligence committee’s staffers. “Let me assure you the CIA was in no way spying on [the committee] or the Senate,” he said.
After the CIA inspector general’s report completely contradicted Brennan’s statements, it now appears Brennan was forced to privately apologize to intelligence committee chairs in a “tense” meeting earlier this week. Other Senators on Thursday pushed for Brennan to publicly apologize and called for an independent investigation.
