CIA Director John Brennan testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 16, 2016, before the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on the Islamic State. Brennan said that the Islamic State remains “formidable” and “resilient,” is training and attempting to deploy operatives for further attacks on the West and will rely more on guerrilla-style tactics to compensate for its territorial losses in the Middle East.

Radio host Sebastian Gorka spotted something very unusual about former CIA Director John Brennan’s twitter account today. Gorka tweeted, “Why hasn’t @BarackObama’s chief bagman @JohnBrennan not appeared on Social Media for 9 days now?”
Brennan typically posts at least every day or two, usually to take a jab at Trump or one of his associates. But he’s gone quiet.

I know what might explain it. It’s been a week since NBC reported that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham planned to expand their investigation and were said to be interested in interviewing Brennan and his colleague, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
That had to be a blow and I’ll bet social media is just about the last thing on his mind.
I guess that’s what happens when you interfere in a U.S. election. Then, when you don’t get quite the result you were shooting for, you decide to do whatever it takes to overturn it. Not good for the soul John.
Oooh! I’m looking back at some of his previous tweets. Most of them are directed toward President Trump.
He does include several positive comments. Actually, he praises Mitt “Pierre Delecto” Romney for his courage and integrity! He writes, “How many other Republican Senators are ready to show the courage, integrity, & principled position of Senator Romney?”
He concludes with, “Thank you, Senator, for putting our Nation & our Constitution above party politics & the corrupt behavior of Donald Trump.”
In another tweet, he congratulates former National Security Advisor Susan Rice on her new book and commends her for her values. Did he catch what Susan said this week about Sen. Graham? Classy lady.
I bet Brennan was really rocked last night when he heard that Durham’s administrative review had shifted into a criminal investigation. At least he didn’t go on television to explain it all to us like his buddy, Andrew McCabe.
We may not be hearing much from Brennan in the near future. After all, finding just the right lawyer has got to be a very time consuming process. Poor Johnny.
Here are some of the responses to Gorka’s tweet:
He’s been on his alternate account, Juan Delicioso.
Check the airports!
He’s “remaining silent.” Probably on orders from his attorney.
He could be busy spilling the beans on all the rest.
It’s over Johnny!!!
He’s practicing trying to get his story straight…
He’s booking flights for Moscow…..
Nothing from either Brennen or BHO since 10/18.
The silence from Obama has been deafening as well.
My guess is he lawyered up.
I bet it was fun playing master of the universe for awhile, wasn’t it?
