The just-released Durham report confirmed that the FBI not only failed to corroborate the Steele dossier, Hillary Clinton’s oppo-doc against former President Donald Trump, but it regularly ignored existing, sometimes dispositive, evidence to keep the investigation alive. Some officials were credulous. Others were devious. But no one “stole” our democracy — other than perhaps intelligence officials and the journalists who helped feed the collective hysteria over Russia.
John Brennan, Hamas-loving authoritarian and partisan propagandist, almost surely knew it was a con from the start. Yet he spent four years on television sounding like a deranged subreddit commenter. Even after privately admitting he knew there was no collusion, Brennan kept lying and using his credentials to mislead the public.
From John Durham’s report:
“CIA Director John Brennan and Deputy Director David Cohen were interviewed by the Office and were asked about their knowledge of any actual evidence of members of the Trump campaign conspiring or colluding with Russian officials. When Brennan was provided with an overview of the origins of the Attorney General’s Review after Special Counsel Mueller finding a lack of evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian authorities, Brennan offered that ‘they found no conspiracy.'”
As Durham points out, even after Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report, and after Brennan admitted no one found a conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign, the former head of the CIA went on air with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, another all-star election “denier,” and claimed that he “suspected there was more” to collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian President Vladimir Putin than Mueller had let on.
Did I mention this was the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency?
Brennan must have been relying on that same gut instinct that led him to sign a letter asserting that the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop scoop, a journalistic effort with more corroboration than virtually anything connected to Trump’s alleged “collusion,” had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
The House Judiciary Committee recently uncovered an Oct. 19, 2020, email from CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell, who was working with the Biden campaign to concoct “a talking point” to “push back on Trump” during the final presidential debates, asking Brennan to sign on to the “disinformation” letter. “Ok, Michael, add my name to the list. Good initiative. Thanks for asking me to sign on,” Brennan replied.
That’s all it takes for the former CIA director, a man who was given immense unchecked power — a man who oversaw secret kill lists and was the driving force behind drone strikes on civilians (including an American citizen) — to sign a letter he knew would obstruct the workings of “democracy” and the free press.
This is a man who still has access to classified documents. You might remember all the hand-wringing over broken norms when Trump allegedly barred intelligence agencies from sharing classified information with Brennan. The New York Times even gave him a column to argue that Trump’s claims of “no collusion” were “why the president revoked my security clearance,” which, again, he almost certainly knew was a lie.
Of course, Brennan should have been denied access to any classified material and driven into exile after he was caught overseeing an operation of illegal spying on staffers in the Senate. CIA officials broke into Senate computer files and viewed emails and drafts of a report on torture. All of it was illegal. Brennan covered up the agency’s actions (also illegal), blamed the Senate and pushed to fire at least one staffer who was tasked with investigating his agency.
All this happened when the tan-suited Obama was in charge, so most people probably missed it.
It wasn’t until the CIA’s inspector general confirmed this wrongdoing that Brennan began negotiating with the lily-livered senators about owning up to the spying. Even then, Brennan was lying. When asked about the CIA hacking into Senate computers at an appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations, Brennan responded by saying, “Nothing could be further from the truth.” Nothing? “I mean, we wouldn’t do that,” he went on. “I mean, that’s just beyond the — you know, the scope of reason in terms of what we would do.” Brennan went on to say: “Let me assure you the CIA was in no way spying on (the committee) or the Senate.”
The Obama administration backed Brennan fully, and the Senate moved on. No one put him under oath and grilled him about the specifics. As with the FBI interference in the 2016 election, not one person was held accountable for domestic spying, much less fired.

When you consider the fact that John Brennan was a known Communist who voted for Angela Davis and Gus Hall in the 1980 election, yet not only was allowed to join the CIA but eventually rose to be its director, that tells you something about just how far back and how deep the rot goes in this nation.
Whatever one’s opinion is of Donald Trump, in my mind, his greatest achievement was exposing this rot and corruption, just by his mere presence and what he vowed to do – drain the swamp.
And that leads to his greatest failing – not realizing that the swamp was as big, dark and deep as the Pacific Ocean.
That failing was also ours.

Photo up above is the face of evil and it isn’t going away anytime soon, nor are the other evil faces.
Brennan, by his own admission, voted for perennial Communist Party USA presidential candidate Gus Hall. That alone should have barred him from working for the CIA. Well, that and the fact he’s a big fat liar. Yet Obama appointed him. Birds of a feather and all that.

It was Senator McCarthy who warned us about the Commies and their plans for America that’s why they want to merge the USA with Mexico and Canada and create the North American(Soviet)Union

Brennan should be charged with perjury and obstruction of justice
Brennan should be charged with treason.

Will Brennan ever be held accountable? Eternity lasts a long time. The lake of fire awaits.
This guy is a flight risk if backed up against a wall
All these lefty scum bags getting away with EVERYTHING makes one feel like a sucker for being an honest person.
Andrew Blackadder says
I was lead to believe that Brennan converted to islam which would fall into the same Bag as when he voted and sided with Gus Hall and Angela Davis the two top leaders of the American Communist Party so how the hell did this prick manage to get into the CIA as an Operative let alone later became the Director of the CIA.
The fall of America will come from within and a group of actual born and raised Americans who have fell into a mindset that their country is wrong will do the dirty work and then start complaining that nothing works anymore.
There is a spoiled rotten entitled generation coming up across America that know nothing about everything and morons like Brennan are feeding them all the lies they need to believe.
My pronoun are FU snowflakes.
When will corruption ever end in America?

OBAMA’S CIA HEAD, a Communist and Muslim, who was in charge of conducting operations around the world against Communists and Muslims, but he, and Obama, were instead AIDING AND ABETTING their Comrades and Muslim Brothers!
They gave Obama a Nobel Prize, not for something he did but for what he was going to do, A U.S. RETREAT from the World leaving a void for Communists and Muslims!
The Black Supremacist Movement must be EXPOSED and STOPPED! “Thanks Obama!”
