It's fairly obvious why this particular interview excited you so much to start a thread about it's contents...and what's the point?
To comfort yourself by finding a like minded view - in John Brennan of all people.

I thought it was an amusingly eloquent quote that is relevant to current events , you are not judge and jury to what gets posted here.
My opinion is my opinion I don't need to validation from Brennan or anybody else.



Of course you won't admit that even to yourself, but I assure you it is obvious.

Pop psychology.

And my opinion is that you are still struggling to get over an election that seriously effected you - leading you to hang on the words of John Brennan for comfort. You are welcome to continue seeking such solace and posting what you want, I wouldn't dream of trying to stop you.

Because alliteration means srs bsns

What does srs bsns mean ?

My guess would be 'serious business'.


Winner winner, chicken dinner

Brennan has responded with fire and fury today to Trump's celebrating , on twitter , the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe , and quite eloquently I thought.

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
twitter.com...

Gotta give it to him , he has a way with words.

Leave it John , he aint worth it !





trump was tweeting more lies today....too. the man just does not stop.

He will get the IG report because it could infer further obstruction of justice. He's with the FBI. He has already interviewed McCabe and can recall him at any time. Why would he be worried about staying away from this? He can subpoena anyone he wants to talk to if they don't come voluntarily. He won't lose a valuable witness.

Mueller was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the election and the trump organizations involvement in that. They don't indict for non crimes.
He is also investigating obstruction of justice as relates to James Comeys firing. This is fodder for that investigation.

Remember when we were pretending these high-level intel officials weren't political hacks?

That's a pretty thorough debunking of any claims that firing McCabe was intended to disrupt the Mueller investigation. Good job.

Whataboutisms are weak.

I think the assertion the poster made is appropriate. Im baffled at the criminal apologists willing to throw rule of law under the bus just to stick it in Trumps eye.

Correct. That is why I mocked amfirst.

At the risk of being accused of "whataboutism," I am extremely troubled by those who are turning a blind eye to the criminal behavior of Donald Trump and his swamp critters. The FBI is trying to fulfill its duty to uphold the Constitution, and the White House is doing everything it can to obstruct justice. Meanwhile, congressional Republicans are bringing their party into disrepute by colluding with the White House for extremely short term political gain.

Personally, I am looking forward to the GOP splitting into a Trump-Populist faction and a traditional center-right faction so I can vote for Republican candidates again.

Really? Is that what you call it? The FBI got Co-opted by the Obama Admin into this mess, first with the Clinton Server/Email Disaster and the kid gloves they put on, then with spying on Trump associates with a FISC warrant that seems to be done with very shoddy procedures if not outright lies to the court. You have people in the FBI talking about high level meeting to discuss an "insurance policy" that would prevent Trump from being President.


That's "Upholding the Constitution"?

What criminal behavior? Besides Manafort for whatever he did (and the FBI knew about, and cleared him over) years ago, and Flynn (ahem) "lying"...what criminal behavior?

How? By following the recommendation of OPR and firing McCabe? That resulted from an investigation started by Obama when he authorized (finally) Horowitz digging in.

How is he obstructing justice? By standing idly by while the FBI tries to fulfill its duty to uphold the constitution by firing McCabe for being a dirty cop? Thats what "lack of candor" means.

Brenan wants to defend McCabe. Doesn't surprise me.

Conspiracy. Money laundering. Blackmail. Espionage. Trump fired Comey because he refused to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn, who has pleaded guilty to avoid more serious charges. He fired McCabe for not ending the Russia investigation, and I wouldn't be surprised if Sessions were gone soon. Your only consolation is that "obstruction of justice" might not be an impeachable offense.
