A Senator from Kentucky slammed former CIA Director John Brennan, who called President Donald J. Trump treasonous after meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki, Finland.
“John Brennan started out his adulthood by voting for the Communist Party presidential candidate,” said Sen. Rand Pau (R-KY). “He is now ending his career by showing himself to be the most biased, bigoted, over-the-top, hyperbolic, unhinged director of the C.I.A. we’ve ever had. It really is an insult to everything about our government, to have a former head of the C.I.A. calling the President treasonous just because he doesn’t like him.”
Brennan and his comrade James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence are known for massive power grabs during their tenures as heads of America’s spy outfits. Both expanded the federal government’s powers to collect metadata and spy on U.S. Citizens, which was exposed by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Clapper subsequently lied to Congress about the NSA’s intelligence-collecting powers.
“You know, I filibustered Brennan,” Paul said. “I tried to keep Brennan from ever being the leader of the C.I.A. But realize that Brennan and Clapper are known for wanting to expand the authority of the intelligence agencies to grab up everyone’s information, including Americans’, and so I don’t have a lot of respect for these people. Even before they decided to go on hating the President, I disliked these people because they wanted to grab up so much power and use it against the American people.”
