John Brennan’s interview with Rachel Maddow clearly got under Trump’s skin as the president can’t stop tweeting about the former CIA Director.
Has anyone looked at the mistakes that John Brennan made while serving as CIA Director? He will go down as easily the WORST in history & since getting out, he has become nothing less than a loudmouth, partisan, political hack who cannot be trusted with the secrets to our country!

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow did a deep and detailed interview with John Brennan and the picture that his answers painted showed why Trump is running scared from the Mueller investigation. https://t.co/TFkl9KmW9J pic.twitter.com/eV77yFdd60

The reason for Trump calling Brennan a loudmouth was the former CIA Director’s interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow where he said, “I know what the Russians did in interfering in the election. I have 100% confidence in what they did. For Mr. Trump to stand on that stage in Helsinki with all the world’s eyes upon him and he doesn’t understand why would the Russians interfere in the elections. He’s given them a pass time after time after time and keeps referring to it as a witch-hunt and bogus and, to me, this was an attack against the foundational principle of our republic the right of all Americans to choose their elected leaders.”
John Brennan Knows What The Russians Did
The reason why Trump is obsessed with Brennan and losing his mind is that Brennan knows what the Russians did, which makes his speaking out a threat to the Trump presidency. Trump’s tweets are intended to discredit Brennan because Brennan knows what happened in 2016. Trump isn’t trying to mount a defense. The president is trying to discredit the people who know what happened in 2016. Brennan knows, which makes him a threat to Trump. Innocent people don’t use their platforms to discredit sources. Trump made a mistake when he revoked Brennan’s security clearance because the former CIA Director has an even bigger platform now, and people are listening.
