Clapper and Brennan not just wrong about Mueller

Clapper and Brennan not just wrong about Mueller

Not sure how many times former U.S. Intelligence chief James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan have appeared on the anti-Trump, anti-Republican, anti-conservative network news programs, but it has been a LOT. They are often interviewed and quoted in anti-Trump newspaper screeds. They pen opinion columns for the same said publications.

They have been among the most vociferous and critical adversaries of President Trump. Their titles give them an aura of credibility. After all, who knows what is really going on more than these two top intelligence officers? And that attribute is played to the hilt of their friends in the media. On the other hand, it makes their politically-driven opinions that much more dangerous and disgusting.

It would be virtually impossible to find two more consistently anti-Trump critics. They were – and are – the poster boys for the #NeverTrump Resistance Movement.

Still … despite their political pedigrees, Clapper and Brennan revealed the mendacity of their criticisms of Trump and others surrounding him – including the entire Trump family – by going too far in their demonization. Their descriptions of Trump and his activities match any viciousness that could be ascribed to Trump, himself. Their over-the-top descriptions of the President won both of them separate critical commentaries by this writer in the past – and now later revelations has further sullied the reputation and exposed their motives.

Brennan has been, by far, the most outspoken making claims of criminal collusion, obstruction of justice and even accused Trump of treason. In his many media appearances, Brennan has assured the American public that Mueller would be coming out with additional indictments and that the President would be accused of criminal activities. Even Clapper – who, himself, kept up a drum beat of criticism and accusation – thought that Brennan’s rhetoric went a bit too far. But for the most part, they operated like a tag team – covering each other’s posterior. After Trump was critical of Clapper, Brennan tweeted:

“Mr. Trump: Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. Jim Clapper is a man of integrity, honesty, ethics, & morality. You are not. Jim Clapper served his country for over a half century, including in Vietnam. You did not. By your words & behavior, you diminish the Office of the Presidency.”
After Trump lifted Brennan’s top-level security clearance, Clapper was on the air condemning the action.

Brennan has always been on the far left of the political spectrum – even vote for the Communist Party in the past. That did not prevent him from joining the CIA and rising through the ranks to be director of the agency.

Brennan was an ideal person to become part of the #NeverTrump Resistance Movement and the attack on the legitimacy of the presidency itself by intelligence officials that began the day after Trump was elected. He had access to the most confidential national data of the intelligence agencies – and an ability to manipulate that information. It has not been revealed that Brennan was behind the scheme to use the unvetted and now discredited Steele Dossier to obtain a FISA warrant to tap into the Trump campaign.

Though his language was more judicial, Clapper also appears on numerous news programs to proffer the argument that Trump was guilty of criminal collusion and obstruction of justice. He criticized Trump for what he called attacks on the entire intelligence community. That was not the case. Trump’s criticism was against a handful of top intelligence officials who were acting badly – including Clapper and Brennan.

One needs to recall that Clapper was shown to have lied to Congress but escaped perjury charges because of the double standard applied to Republicans and Democrats by the same top leaders of the intelligence agencies.

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathon Turley wrote an opinion column in USA Today which stated:

“Even in a city with a notoriously fluid notion of truth, Clapper’s false testimony was a standout. Clapper appeared before the Senate to discuss surveillance programs in the midst of a controversy over warrantless surveillance of the American public. He was asked directly, ‘Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions, or hundreds of millions of Americans?’ There was no ambiguity or confusion and Clapper responded, “No, sir. … Not wittingly.” That was a lie and Clapper knew it when he said it.”

It is impossible to believe that both Brennan and Clapper – with all their top-level connections – did not realize that there was no evidence of criminal collusion by the Trump campaign. All the while they had to know the fact behind the narrative was that there were no facts.

Despite their own lies and misdeeds, both Brennan and Clapper remain the darlings of the left-wing news services. Their opinions are “valued” on CNN and MSNBC – along with the rest of the bubble encased east coast press. In fact, they should have no more credibility than … say … Michael Avenatti.

So, there ‘tis.

    I agree with Mr Horist’s characterization of Clapper and Brennan unequivocally. They have been and are wrong on all counts when espousing collusion and obstruction of justice being committed by our President. They preach to an adoring croud of left leaning socialist admirers but they have never convinced any deep thinking American conservatives that they speak the truth. Brennan and Clapper are swine and don’t deserve the air time afforded them by the adoring lame stream snowflake media. I am sickened by their treasonous utterances.

    Get over it… or get ready as REVOLUTION will be the needed SOLUTION! We are a third world banana republic; the bereft Leftist, Godless, Satan worshiping power-mad NWO-elitist ghouls such as the ones mentioned in this article escape the “short arms” of justice; just as their poster boy, the black, FA&&OT in Chicago that got a get out of jail card due to the fact that this leftist poster-boy had friends in high places and I am referring our former “Dicktaker-N-Thief”, Muslim-Marxist jihadist Insane Hussein “Fairy” Sotoro and his faux wife Moocho “Michael” the Drag Queen of Welfare! REVOLUTION will be the most needed SOLUTION, like it or not!

    I think the release of Smollett was a tit-for-tat by the left. In their brain dead world they know TRUMP is still guilty even though it’s been proven there’s no evidence. Doesn’t matter to them. Their brain diseased logic is “OK, you let guilty as sin TRUMP get off so we’re gonna let guilty as sin Smollett off.” Yes- I think it’s time for a civil war and the libtards will lose because they will be massively outgunned !!
