Barack Obama CIA director John Brennan has a long history of controversial statements. His most recent diatribe was during President Trump’s summit in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin, when he said Trump’s actions were “treasonous.”
But now it’s Brennan who is being called a traitor to his country.
Former U.S. Attorney for Washington Joe diGenova told the Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity that Brennan is responsible for the sharing of false information about Trump and Russia with American intelligence agencies.
Hannity said he thinks Brennan knew all about the Democrat-funded “dossier” of unproven claims about Trump that was used to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and helped prompt the special counsel investigation.
“I look at a guy like Brennan, it happened on his watch, I think he probably knew all about the dossier. His involvement in this is going to be very interesting,” Hannity said. “Do we really want to live in a country where the Senate leader on the Democratic side says you better not ever say anything bad about the Intel community?”
DiGenova responded: “Sean, I want to talk about two people. We only have so much time — John Brennan and Leon Panetta. John Brennan is a traitor and I will tell you why. He is the real traitor. What he did and what he has had recently about the president of the United States is despicable.”
The former U.S. attorney said Brennan “is personally responsible for the leaking of unmasked information, he was responsible for the sharing of false information to U.S. intelligence sources to get FISA warrants.”
“He is personally responsible for the sharing of false information with American intelligence agencies, and he – I challenge him to a debate at the National Press Club for one hour, two hours, three hours about his role in the entire pre-election.”
Regarding Panetta, DiGenova said he “should be ashamed of himself after what he did in Benghazi when he kissed Hillary Clinton’s fanny … now he says he thinks the Russians may have something on the president to compromise him?”
“Shame on Leon Panetta, may he rot in hell.”
DiGenova isn’t the only one to react to Brennan’s wild claims.
Someone went into the Wikipedia site for Brennan and labeled him, shortly after his criticism of Trump, as a “silly old fart.”
Democrats and other critics had demanded Trump call off his Finland meeting with Putin, claiming the indictment Friday of 12 Russian intelligence officers for interference in the 2016 election further implicates the Trump campaign in an alleged scheme to collude with the Russian government to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Brennan tweeted: “Donald Trump’s press conference in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”
