Straight-Shooting Non-Partisan Former Civil Servant John Brennan Seems to Threaten Sitting President



Samantha Power then emphasized that Brennan was making a threat:



This then spurred some pushback:


Brit Hume took Brennan's threatening tweet as good reason to link this old Guardian article calling Brennan the most talented liar in Washington DC:

As reports emerged Thursday that an internal investigation by the Central Intelligence Agency’s inspector general found that the CIA "improperly" spied on US Senate staffers when researching the CIA's dark history of torture, it was hard to conclude anything but the obvious: John Brennan blatantly lied to the American public. Again.

"The facts will come out," Brennan told NBC News in March after Senator Dianne Feinstein issued a blistering condemnation of the CIA on the Senate floor, accusing his agency of hacking into the computers used by her intelligence committee’s staffers. "Let me assure you the CIA was in no way spying on [the committee] or the Senate," he said.

After the CIA inspector general’s report completely contradicted Brennan's statements, it now appears Brennan was forced to privately apologize to intelligence committee chairs in a "tense" meeting earlier this week....


Lest we forget, Brennan’s most recent false statement is not his first James Clapper-esque experiment in misinformation. The nation’s top spy is, in fact, a proficient and skilled liar. As Obama's top counterterrorism advisor for his entire first term in the White House, Brennan built, oversaw, executed and excused America’s robotic assassination program. During a speech in 2011, the keeper of the kill list said there had not been "a single collateral death" from US drone strikes because of their "exceptional proficiency [and] precision".

...

Internal intelligence documents leaked to McClatchy later confirmed Brennan to have lied at the time, not to mention the countless media reports before and since documenting other cases of US drone strikes killing civilians.


Remember, the Washington Consensus smuggishly lectured you that not only was there no partisan Deep State, but that such a thing was altogether unthinkable.

Were they just stupid and uninformed -- in which case, the Washington Consensus should be entirely ignored going forward -- or were they in on the conspiracy and protecting their palz?
