For wacky conspiracy theories you can’t beat Fox & Friends, Donald Trump’s favorite morning television show. Earlier this year they said that lower tax refunds this year were the fault of the American taxpayers instead of the Trump administration.
And today they said that Former CIA Director John Brennan was behind the Mueller investigation, and he should now be targeted for revenge by the president and his administration.
They think that they unfairly suffered through special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe for the past 22 months.
So today Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade stated his opinion that the president and his team should now turn their attention to Brennan as they seek revenge.
According to Kilmeade’s warped mind, Brennan’s frequent appearances on cable news channels ranting about Trump’s links to Russian President Vladimir Putin were inspired by his relationship with Christopher Steele.
Steele is the former officer of the British intelligence agency MI-6, and it was he who compiled and published the infamous dossier which claimed that Trump had been compromised by Russian intelligence agencies.
“I do have somebody within the CIA who I’ve gotten friendly with, to say to me that if you want to know where this goes, look at Brennan’s link to Steele,” Kilmeade claimed. “And that was the first time I even thought about that, but they have a long relationship.”
“You’re talking to a CIA spy?!” exclaimed co-host Steve Doocy.
“No, it’s the CIA working on our side,” Kilmeade replied mysteriously.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) today also claimed that “a high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report” and he demanded that the former CIA chief be hauled before the Senate.
BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report… Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.

Trump & Friends Are Going On the Offensive, But It May Backfire on Them
After Barr’s false letter appeared on Sunday, Trump and his right-wing allies have gone on the offensive, claiming that they have been greatly harmed, and that the perpetrators should be punished.
He sent out a letter to major news outlets demanding that they ban Trump critics from appearing on their shows.
He has compiled an enemies list, such as has happened in the past with dictators and autocratic leaders.
He is demanding that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff be removed from his post, and punished.
However, what Trump & Friends are missing is that everything they are doing and demanding is based on a false narrative. They maintain that the Mueller report clears Donald Trump of both collusion and obstruction of justice, but it does neither.
Once the full Mueller report comes out Donald Trump will have to retract his criticisms and his calls for revenge.
And when that happens all of America — and the world — will see the truth about Donald Trump and how he sold out his own country.
