‘Former CIA Chief Brennan Running Scared’; Will He Go Down Next?

March 21, 2018 (EIRNS)—The above headline, on a March 19 article by Ray McGovern, of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), appropriately captures the mindset of the psychopath former CIA Director John Brennan, whose hysterical attacks on President Donald Trump reflect his own, clearly deep-seated fears, that after the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, he may be House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’s next target and could end up in jail.

On Saturday, March 17, after news of McCabe’s firing was reported, Brennan let out a stream of vituperative tweets aimed at Trump:

“When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America ... America will triumph over you.”

As McGovern points out, these threats have more to do with the fact that Brennan is terrified. “His own unauthorized disclosures and leaks probably dwarf in number, importance and sensitivity those of McCabe.” Nunes’s words that “if they need to be put on trial, we will put them on trial,” McGovern suggests, must have sent chills down Brennan’s spine.

So, Brennan’s hysteria is reaching a fever pitch. Yesterday, after Trump’s phone call to Russian President Putin congratulating him on his election victory, and suggesting they meet sometime soon, Brennan went berserk, complaining of the President’s “fawning attitude” toward Putin. He told MSNBC, earlier today,

“I think the President has shown a lack of understanding of international affairs, as well as a real ignorance of what it takes to be President. He is mean-spirited, he is dishonest, he has shown a lack of integrity, and he has continued to demean the office of the presidency.”

In response to the report that Trump had been advised not to congratulate Putin, Brennan ranted,

“I believe that there are individuals within the White House, the national security [team] and also within Congress that are looking at Mr. Trump, seeing that he is acting more and more like a cornered animal, and lashing out whatever way he can. And who knows what that cornered animal will do once they see the threat to their survival.”

Seems like Brennan is describing his own behavior, rather than Trump’s.
