Ex-CIA chief John Brennan, cornered in IG report, lashes out

As most any vermin will react when suddenly cornered, former CIA Director John Brennan blindly lashed out at his detractors Monday evening after IG Horowitz’s report came out earlier in the day.

Actually, Brennan spat his venom in the general direction of President Trump, as well as members of Congress and staffers who support the administration when he tweeted: “The damage being inflicted by @realDonaldTrump on our national conscience & our government is tragic. Members of Congress & staffers who defend & misrepresent his indefensible actions are telling Americans it’s ok to be dishonest, unethical, & corrupt. How far we have fallen.”

The damage being inflicted by @realDonaldTrump on our national conscience & our government is tragic.

Members of Congress & staffers who defend & misrepresent his indefensible actions are telling Americans it’s ok to be dishonest, unethical, & corrupt.

How far we have fallen.

Although Brennan’s tweet was vague and did not reference the IG report, it seems apparent that his angst is originating from the assessment coming from the inspector general’s office.

The IG report confirmed that Brennan lied to Congress when he said the debunked Steele dossier was not relied upon for the Obama administration’s Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA).

The ICA was used to inform still-President Obama and then-President-elect Trump in January 2017 about Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election.

According to The Federalist, “FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said that ‘he felt strongly that the Steele election reporting belonged in the body of the ICA, because he feared that placing it in an appendix was ‘tacking it on’ in a way that would ‘minimiz[e]’ the information and prevent it from being properly considered.”
