With news breaking that FBI spook Robert Mueller’s special investigation into Russian collusion found no evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump, the fake news merchants of the mainstream media are looking for scapegoats, and they may be settling on former CIA Director John Brennan for that role.

Brennan has been one of President Donald Trump’s most obscene and foul opponents, exhibiting incredibly unprofessional behavior unbecoming of a public servant frequently throughout Mueller’s hoax of an investigation.

Brennan has disgraced himself so badly that even fake news entities like CNN and ABC News are demanding that he be held accountable for lying so incessantly and irresponsibly.

CNN political commentator Amanda Carpenter said on Monday that Brennan should apologize for his repeated incendiary comments that Trump was guilty of “treason” without any evidence.

“He’s not just a regular pundit spouting off,” she said. “He was a former CIA director. I don’t know about you guys, but when a former CIA director speaks, I listen, because I believe they have credibility, and now he’s backtracking.”

ABC News Senior National Correspondent Terry Moran highlighted Brennan’s hypocrisy with the following tweet:

Brennan is still attempting to weasel out of complicity for perpetrating this seditious conspiracy against President Trump and the American people.

“I still point to things that were done publicly, or efforts to try to have conversations with the Russians that were inappropriate, but I’m not all that surprised that the high bar of criminal conspiracy was not met,” Brennan said during an MSNBC appearance on Monday.

Brennan should be more concerned about his own inappropriate behavior. Not only has the disgraced former CIA chief lied to the American public about Russian collusion, he has also formulated Obama’s “kill list” for drone attacks and committed obvious perjury before the US Senate. If anyone ought to be investigated by the FBI, it should be Brennan and other Obama-era officials, not anyone from the Trump administration.
