You have to hand it to Obama officials for utter gall.
They’ve done everything they could to kneecap and undermine President Donald Trump. They failed, but they’re still scrambling, trying to justify themselves and deflect blame onto Trump.
So check out their new spin, courtesy of the execrable John Brennan. It isn’t their fault for all the unmasking requests of Gen. Michael Flynn, trying to take him out or leaking to the media.
It’s the Trump administration’s fault for revealing the unmasking, according to him.
According to Fox News, Brennan called the release of the names of the Obama officials involved in the unmasking an “abominable abuse of authority.” Wow, pot calling the kettle black there.
He called the recent actions by the Department of Justice to drop the case against Flynn combined with the release of names “blatant political corruption at the highest levels of U.S. government.”
“When you have the administration– the White House, the attorney general, the acting head of the intelligence community all acting in concert to try to advance the personal interests of Mr. Trump… I think this is very, very serious,” Brennan told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.
“I’m just hoping that individuals like Chris Wray who is a remarkable public servant, will continue to stay strong in the face of this type of abominable abuse of authority,” he said.
MSNBC of course didn’t press Brennan or ask him any tough questions about what he was doing when he unmasked Flynn and why so many of Obama officials did so, including James Clapper, James Comey, Samantha Power, Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, even Vice President Joe Biden.
Incredibly, Brennan still tried to sell the Russia collusion hoax saying that he was concerned about Trump officials not stopping Russian interference in the election.
First the primary interference in the 2016 election and in the 2020 election has been from Democrats doing anything they can to improperly undermine their political opponent, Donald Trump, from paying for Russian disinformation to even politicizing a virus and toadying to China.
Brennan has a history of spying on Congress: he lied about it and then got caught, because it was under Obama, nothing happened.
Brennan professes to be worried now.
“I am very worried that the instruments of governance…intelligence, law enforcement, and justice are now being exploited and manipulated in Mr. Trump’s hands,” fmr. CIA Director Brennan says. “I think that’s something that should worry all Americans.”https://t.co/KXTEYG2ZTP

And he should be.
As we previously reported, U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly honing in on Brennan for allegedly suppressing evidence that Russia interfered on behalf of Hillary Clinton because it didn’t fit the narrative they waned to push. Brennan was completely melting down and letting the “lickspittle” fly earlier this week, attacking Trump.
He’s getting more and more nervous and you can just see it. James Woods perfectly summarized it.
His nights are drenched in a cold sweat. https://t.co/g0jHmkaZEN
