Ex-CIA Chief Brennan to Trump: Your Behavior and ‘Incompetence’ Are ‘Damaging Our Nation’


Former CIA Director John Brennan is once again going after President Trump over his attacks on the “witch hunt” Russia investigation.

The President took to Twitter this morning to decry the special counsel probe and invoke Robert Mueller‘s poll numbers.

“With all of the bias, lying and hate by the investigators, people want the investigators investigated,” the President claimed.

Brennan responded by asking when “those of conscience” around the President––including Republican leaders––will finally wake up:

In a recent op-ed for The Washington Post, Brennan addressed his frequent criticisms of Trump and his administration by declaring, “I have never been and will never be a partisan. I speak out for the simple reason that Mr. Trump is failing to live up to the standards that we should all expect of a president. As someone who had the rare privilege of directly serving four presidents, I will continue to speak out loudly and critically until integrity, decency, wisdom — and maybe even some humility — return to the White House.”
