John Brennan Blasts Trump's Press Conference As "Nothing Short Of Treasonous"

The neocons, not to mention members of the military-industrial complex, are furious at the thought of losing Russia as the biggest global bogeyman responsible for tens of billions in bottom line profits to US defense corporations.

Case in point: John Brennan.

Former Obama-era CIA Director - and ubiquitous tweeter of anti-Trump rhetoric - John Brennan just unleashed the most aggressive comment yet on the Trump-Putin Summit, claiming it was an act of treason.

"Why did Trump meet 1 on 1 with Putin? What might he be hiding from Bolton, Pompeo, Kelly, & the American public? How will Putin use whatever Trump could be hiding to advantage Russia & hurt America? Trump’s total lack of credibility renders spurious whatever explanation he gives."

"Donald Trump's press performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes and misdemeanors,'" Brennan tweeted. "It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???"

Additionally, Brennan called on Pompeo, Kelly and Bolton to resign over Trump's behavior at presser with Putin...

CNN's Anderson Cooper was apparently reading from the same gospel, calling the Trump-Putin press conference "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader certainly that I've ever seen":

We wonder what Brennan and Cooper would have said about this US president's comments to a Russian leader...>

Moments after his tweet, Brennan appeared on MSNBC and demanded Trump cabinet officials resign in protest.

WILLIAMS: “We just read what you said on Twitter. Your reaction to what you’ve just seen?”

BRENNAN: “Well, Brian, I thought that there was nothing Donald Trump could say that would shock me, but I was wrong. I was just totally shocked at the performance of Donald Trump in Helsinki at a press conference with Vladimir Putin. I just found that it was outrageous. And even when the press — and thank goodness the press asked the right questions — even when the press gave him an opportunity to hold Russia accountable for anything, he chose to talk about Hillary Clinton, about his election, about servers. He criticized American citizens, Secretary Clinton and others as opposed to really taking advantage of a world stage, with all the world’s eyes upon them, to point out how unacceptable Russia’s behavior and interference in our election and the elections of other democratic countries around the globe is. But he just shirked those responsibilities. I cannot understand how the national security team can continue to abide by this and how Pompeo and Bolton and Kelly can continue in their jobs. This, I think, rises to the point of good American patriots resigning in objection to that performance by Donald Trump. I’m at a loss of words to describe just how outrageous his words, his statements, his behavior has been. And one can only conclude that he fears Vladimir Putin. And that one-on-one discussion, who knows what was discussed there. And how Mr. Putin now is the master puppeteer of Donald Trump, the person who is in our Oval Office. Outrageous.”

WILLIAMS: “I just saw a picture of Huntsman and Pompeo while the President was speaking, looking a bit stricken. But to your point about patriots, to your point about resignations, what do you think the practical impact, just say by the end of business today, tomorrow, will be?”

BRENNAN: “I don’t know. That’s why I said in my tweet Republican patriots all over the country, including in the Congress, where are you? When are you going to speak out and roundly condemn what Donald Trump is doing? And all of those good Americans who voted for Mr. Trump believing that he was going to protect this country, I think you have now his demonstrated unwillingness, maybe inability, to protect this country’s interests. I think this is a time for all Americans to rally and to say, ‘Mr. Trump, you are not doing what is necessary in order to keep this country strong and safe.’ And Mr. Pu

Is that your entire comment or just a place holder while you struggle in vain to think of something witty?

 

PS -- So it was a place holder which is a shame because your original statement "geez" made much more sense than the edit.

As for your observation, such as it is, haven't you noticed that the reason why Hillary won't go away is because Hillary won't go away?

Brennan is a very disturbed individual. Part of the old guard. Not even 'jew', but sold out to the interests of the luciferians. It's actually shocking that a guy like this even exists AND that thinks anybody cares or should care about who he is, what he thinks or has to say.

A total swamp creature made utterly irrelevant, flailing away at the wind while his satanic world order he spent his lifetime building come crashing down all around him.

Time to die old man, time to die and face the judgment - loser

What an absolute monster.

But look at the scowl on his face, and the fear in his eyes - the look of a cornered animal - he knows he's dead meat.

His days of hiding in the swamp are drawing to a close. Soon all the world will know his darkest dirty secrets and there will be nowhere to run to, and nowhere to hide.

The light is coming. Be afraid. Be very afraid...

   ... perhaps, this has something to do with Brennan’s ire ... >>> “Putin Gives Trump Shocking Evidence That Obama-Clinton CIA Director John Brennan Is Longtime Russian Spy” ... >>> http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2607.htm ...

   ... “ ... Of the main “kompromat” recruitments made in 1976 by deep cover operative KGB officer Oleg Erovinkin, this report details, was a Fordham University student living in New York City named John Brennan—who not only worked on the US president campaign of the Communist Party USA candidate Gus Hall, but voted for him too—with Brennan, in 1980, then joining the CIA in what he described as: “I had previously sent in an application to the CIA because of a New York Times ad I saw one time on the way to Fordham, and I had some overseas experience.  My wife knew that I had that application, so she prodded me and said, 'Send that application in so you can get a real job and help pay the bills,' which I did, and it was a great, great opportunity”.

The New York Times advertisement for CIA recruitment Fordham University student John Brennan replied to, this report explains, was placed into this newspaper by senior CIA intelligence officer Aldrich Ames—who at the time headed the CIA’s operations in New York City—but, who was, also, one of the KGB’s most highly placed in history “deep cover” operatives ever to have worked for the CIA—and for which Ames is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole in a US Federal penitentiary. ... “
