Trump Responds To CIA Chief Brennan, Asks "Was He The Leaker Of Fake News?"

Tyler Durden's picture

Just hours after John Brennan lashed out at the president-elect in an interview with Fox News, Donald Trump has responded by suggesting that the outgoing CIA Director may have been behind the publication last week of unverified and salacious intelligence connecting the president-elect to Russia....

This is the most direct accusation yet in the escalating feud with Obama's intelligence agencies. As we noted earlier, no president since John F. Kennedy has dared to take on the CIA or the rest of the national security establishment. They knew that if they opposed the national-security establishment at a
fundamental level, they would be subjected to retaliatory measures. To the extent that President Kennedy consciously stood up to the
system, he paid the price for his attempt at independent wielding of
power from the Oval Office. It is a shuddering thought. A sharp lesson in history that must not be misinterpreted. The implications for Trump are quite clear. If his
refusal to take intelligence briefings, or follow CIA advice is serious,
then serious consequences will follow. If Trump is serious about peace
with Putin when they insist on war, there will be a problem.

The CIA director will likely be replaced by Mr Trump's pick Mike Pompeo next week.

Goddamn it, Donald, don't get yourself killed before you get yourself redpilled. I want you to learn (((who's))) responsible for so much shit first.

Sure like hell weren't the CHINESE.

They don't care about hacking, leaks or industrial espionage:

Whoa Dammit's picture

Wow. Trump's no taking any prisoners. Gotta love it.

Mr. Universe's picture

Perhaps he realizes whatever "briefings" he has received is entirely contrived bullshit. He most likely has his own team giving him the other sides of the story. Good luck figuring out what the truth is. We are Pontius Pilate days where few if any can divine "what is truth?"

What is Brennan's connection to Pizzagate.

I'm sure it is there, this would be the time that it comes out.

Hopefully Trump is not Colosio, for those history buffs in the know

bobbbny's picture

Wow, what balls. Hopefully he has the full support of the military.

If they are angry enough at the betrayal of the US by the CIA, they will act as patriots.

Which is the way its always been, us & then...them ;-)

Hope Trump's environment and security detail have been THOROUGHLY sealed and vetted beyond reproach, respectively. Otherwise, a tiny mosquito drone may be flown in through a vent and inject a small Ricin pellet.

The thing is, by being so public about it, if he gets assassinated, everything will buiurn to the ground.   Ev eryone in the world will know it was the CIA and the left.

Jeffersonian Liberal's picture

That is exactly why they won't be so brazen as to take him out. And they don't need to, when the central bankers have control of the money (and therefore the legislators).

They will let him serve, for about a year to two years at most, just enough time for him to enact his major policies and for those policies to have an impact on the economy and on US-foreign relations (which will make other countries very annoyed with us).

Then the central bankers will pull the rug out from under him.

This massive Jenga castle that they have built balancing on the edge of a massive cliff (with Obama serving as Chief stick-puller and stiff-sticker these past 8 years) will collapse with such a boom that it will make the 1930s look like the Roarin' 20's.

TPTB will then blame Trump, because he is the perfect scapegoat. He is essentially a third-party candidate. And I've always said, if we ever succeed in electing a third-party candidate, the Reps and the Dems (that is, the Establishment Party) will collude to destroy that leader so that "the people" never, ever dare elect someone not from the Establishment Party. So they'll scapegoat Trump on that account.

But they'll also use Trump as the epitome of the rich, greedy, Capitalist businessman whose economic and business beliefs ultimately lead to ruin. They'll point to the collapsed economy (of all the West, because when they pull the US rug out, they pull it out from under all the West), and say, "See, we gave you a couple of decades of good, socialist-leaning liberals. Under Obama, we gave you 8 years of 'peace and prosperity' because he was a good, anti-US, global socialist. They you ignorant fools went and elected a non-Establishment Party evil Capitalist and you destroyed it all. Don't ever, ever vote for anyone other than the candidates we select for you. Ever."

Jeffersonian Liberal's picture

So Syrin comments that if the CIA actually takes Trump out, everyone will know it was them.

I essentially agree with Syrin and explain in some detail how and why they will not take him out directly but will destroy his presidency.

And some dipshit spineless troll down votes my comment?

Please, explain how you think the central banks will do what they can to help Trump.

Please, explain how foreign countries will rally around the US when we impose America-first policies.

Please, explain why you think the CIA, who Trump has successfully been calling out for a couple of months now, will be able to pull off taking him out without the country unleashing holy hell on them.

If you're going to down vote what is essentially a fairly benign analysis, have the balls to explain yourself.

MEFOBILLS's picture

Your benign analysis seems correct to me.  Trump is not part of  finance Oligarchy.  He makes his living on owning real estate and entertainment.  The finance boys are a threat to Trumps businesses, especially their push for war.

PCR echoes this theme as well.

You just mad because you fell for the dumbest fucking story anyone ever heard hook line and sinker.

Suggest you cry alone in a corner somewhere rather than online. It's pretty pathetic.

Brennan should be looking for another job.  


Overall, Trump is screwed.  The Wuffin Puff club will never accept him.  




fleur de lis's picture

That is a very good point.

Considering Brennan's CIA position he is getting a bit too punchy with the PEOTUS in public.

Going way out on a limb, making lots of noise, veiled threats, and attracking negative attention from an incoming President.

Something is off, like he is overcompensating big time, or maybe Brennan is signaling that he and his hoodlum friends won't go down without a fight.


What are they fighting for?

What could be so important that it would bring CIA gang warfare out into the open?

The CIA psychopaths should have thought of that when the were stuffing their mugs at weirdo spirit cooking parties.

Paid for by our taxes, of course.

Wouldn't it be interesting if they are all in a tizzy about pix and AV of them nibbling on the appetizers and worse.

Puppet is as puppet does.

Dear Mr. Brennan.

Please don't assassinate Trump. It will be one less murder you have to account for when you meet your Maker.

God bless Trump

"Shut your mouth Trumpy dumpy" says Brennan, as the ebb of his murdering CIA fortunes wane. I can see his ghastly head on a spike outside Langley.

CheapBastard's picture

The horses' ass was way  out of line on TV. HE is the one who jeopardizes national security with his flippant remarks. Brennan should be arreasted on Jan 21st for violation of the Patriot Act!

The good news is Trump has 60 million strong people behind him who are ready to defend his goals.

How many does Brennan have?

Anybody notice Mr. Brennan never wore a uniform, never carried a rifle, never personally ambushed or was ambushed, never had an IED blow his vehicle up, never had a buddy killed by a sniper, slept on clean sheets every night, had hot meals and never ate C-Rations or MREs.  Must be nice to have a hot shower every night and not sweat your ass off by day in an Iraqi desert and then freeze your butt off when the sun goes down and the day's sweat gets cold.  I wonder how many innocent people the CIA snatched off the streets of the world and tortured the shit out of without due process of law.  I guess when you will see a video of a US pilot beat to shit after being interrogated (just as we did at Abu Ghraib) you best not scream, "Your violating the Geneva Convention" because the CIA does that every day.  I wonder if the CIA agent that coordinated the Seal Team Six Chinook crash to eliminate anyone who had knowledge of what really happened in the Bin Ladin raid felt quesy about it?

From Wikipedia: "While riding a bus to class at Fordham, he saw an ad in The New York Times that said the CIA was recruiting, and he felt a CIA career would be a good match for his "wanderlust" and his desire to do public service.["

Hey asshole, can you post some of those pics of Trump fighting in Vietnam? How about Gulf War I? Maybe the one where Trump rescued all those Yazidi girls from Daesh? Oh yeah, 'college deferment' and 'bone spurs'. Chickenhawk fatboy trumpy.

Obviously you are unaware that intel officers not only do not wear uniforms, but when they go on a mission behind enemy lines, they go it alone. No sniper team, no back-up, no wing man.... nobody. In comparison, the SEALS have it comparatively easier (though generally SEALS are accompanied by someone from Special Activities, trained just as the SEALS are trained). Real SEALS and the IC respect each other, because both sides know what the other side has faced---and survived. Trump knows nothing, and his childish insecurity tells all SEALS and IC types everything they need to know about him, which is that he is an asshole coward.

All the fucking weekend warriors on this site barking about their guns and their half MOA are playing computer games and living a delusion of their assumed skill set. Many of you, likely most, have no fucking skills at all and wouldn't last a second in the real world. Yea, yea, yea, you've 'trained' and have some big friggin AR-10 with Magpul furniture and an VCOG and NV, and you can shoot a half MOA out to 1800 yards with a fifty mph shifting wind at 6000' ASL in non-standard atmosphere with just ballistics tables tucked away in your head. Sure you can. That delusion and your Mom's basement might keep you safe.

The clown Trump has spent his entire cartoonish life erecting monuments to his own fragile ego and insecurity ("do these hands look small?"), and has served not a single second's service to anybody or anything except himself. Zip. Yet he has the audacity to call people who have willingly gone into harm's way completely alone "Nazis". He also thinks he is an expert on everything. Remember this from the campaign: "I know more about ISIS than all the generals". Do you think the military has any respect for Trump whatsoever? Hint: they do not. A couple suck-ups might want another star, but they are few and far between. Everybody else is wondering what the fuck we did to ourselves. Nobody liked Hillary, but Trump is now making her look like King Arthur.

Trump is a fucking goddamn coward asshole piece of shit chickenhawk who would shit his panties if he ever heard a shot fired in anger or had to face off against a group intent on cutting his head off. Poetic justice would be to drop the chubby clown into Raqqa or Mosul in the same manner that intel community types have done it, then wait for the YouTube video of the moron's 'de-coronation'.

There's a hundred thirteen stars on the right wall of the lobby of a building in suburban VA, with a few more in the works that Trump isn't even worthy to view. Fuck him to Hell.

You assholes think you know stuff because you read it on the internet and it 'makes sense'. Fuck you. You know nothing and are just somebody's sheeple. Goddam fucking sheeple.

Those who do not already feel embarrassed by Trump, or who do not realize he is a disaster in the making, will by June.

Then you approve how the intelligence services have handled these leaks and Brennan's comments? The color revolutions and governmental overthrows? Because they must be REAL patriots?
Perhaps you're proud of the drug running and opium business used to fund black ops while they poison the lives of Americans.
You are quick to rant on about someone who shows a lack of respect for the intelligence services, but why should we? Care to illuminate us on what role they played in 9/11?
You speak as if they are deserving of great respect. When anyone who has done any history at all knows of their connections to MI-6, the Mossad, Operation Paperclip/ Gladio/MKUltra, etc. etc.
These agencies are purveyors of tremendous evil, death and the destruction of people all over the globe.
Trump may end up being a clown, but he will pale in comparison to the denizens of hell from Langley.

The jealous rantings of a person who spent their life accumulating money by doing illicit deals and wanted to add some glory to his miserable existence by gaining a position in the Trump administration. But as it has become clear that Trump has no use for epic liars and traitors, Chindit's thoughts of glory have turned to rage as he gets to end his days alone, in his castle, with the nightly nightmares of a life of pillage and no use to the greater good of humanity. Fade into dust old man.

And you may want to read up on the events of Benghazi, when the ZIA assets you love so much were cowering in their own shit whilst the deplorables you so hate, the contractors, were out fighting to save all of their skins.

Chindit13, I have not been where you have been, nor done what you may have done, but I have known a few who have and engaged in deep discussions with them, to my benefit. Our only difference is that I chose different decisions for who I wanted to be and I acted upon those decisions.

Perhaps it is the difference in what role we accept for which power we seek in our lives, personal- as defined as physical, or spiritual -as defined as more all incompassing. If one accepts that there is only physical to our existence, then I have to ask them, "who is playing the role of you in your dreams?"

Just trying to be helpful, not a smart ass.

In the parlance of our time, the word "patriot" is applied to any member of the American military, including the CIA, who participated in any conflict, at home or abroad, that was instigated by the political establishment and supported by the public. This, despite the patent stupidity of each and every one of those actions over the last 70 years. Thus, to be a patriot is to do the bidding of patently stupid, immoral and corrupt individuals; bribing, deceiving, incarcerating, torturing, killing other humans in pursuit of lofty-sounding goals (bringing democracy, ridding the world of dictators).

It's a gigantic clusterfuck and it would all end tomorrow were it not for "patriotic" Americans standing up and being counted, for God and country. Oh say can you see...

Corrector! Culturally, the Chinese really don't give a shit except doing business, making money and protecting their territory. They never attacked another country unless it threatened theirs.

MEFOBILLS's picture

They never attacked another country unless it threatened theirs.


UH - Not entirely correct.  China has internal tribal affiliations, and different languages.  The Han defend their lands, even though it can be proven the land wasn't historically theirs.

For example, the Han are trying their best to take Tibet with migration .  (Some difficulty since Han are not evolved to breathe air at high altitudes.)

Generally, the Chinese suck at war when compared to whites.  When Chinese are asked what they think about Russians, their answer is "good at fighting."  If you were China, would you threaten Europeans/Russians/Americans with invasion?  It wouldn't go well for you.

Hans have Smaller bodies, less robust skeletons, less testosterone, slightly higher average IQ.  Smaller smart fraction (genius) in IQ distribution.  Less agression than whites.

In general, yes - they are not as hegemonic.  The vietnamese think that China invaded them.
