“WHEN IT COMES TO THE WORST, IT’S BRENNAN”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jul. 18, 2018) — On Wednesday night’s “Hannity,” former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joseph DiGenova said that former CIA Director John Brennan is “a traitor.”
DiGenova used as an example the claim that Brennan knowingly disseminated “false information” to the intelligence community in order to create the impression that Donald Trump “colluded” with Russia. DiGenova also faulted former NSA Director Michael Hayden and former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, both of whom held their positions under Barack Hussein Obama.
After excoriating all three, DiGenova said, “When it comes to the worst, it’s Brennan.”
DiGenova’s expressed anger at all three former public servants, and Brennan in particular, came after Brennan called Trump’s press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin on Monday “treasonous.” To many observers, Trump gave Putin’s claim that his government did not interfere in the U.S. 2016 election more credibility than reports from the U.S. intelligence community that Russia did, in fact, attempt to disrupt the American 2016 electoral process.
Brennan has demonstrated extreme dislike for Trump on Twitter and on CNN, where he was hired as a commentator last fall. Hayden, too, has been highly critical of Trump since he took office in January 2017.
Hayden served as CIA director under President George W. Bush after leading the NSA from 1999 to 2005.
Panetta was Barack Hussein Obama’s Secretary of Defense when four Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya, at a CIA outpost on September 11, 2012. He testified to a congressional panel that “time and distance” prevented him from dispatching military assistance to the two former Navy SEALS working as CIA contractors who tried to save the lives of Information Specialist Sean Smith and U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
Some believe that Brennan’s cryptic comments directed at Trump on Twitter constitute threats.
