Brennan Backtracks: “…I received bad information “
A lot of people have a lot to answer for at the conclusion of Robert Mueller’s investigation – and none of them are members of the Trump campaign, as none of them colluded with Russia.
The real scandal turned out not to be collusion, but the players who coordinated to push a bogus narrative about collusion, which eventually led to a secretive FBI counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, which then became Mueller’s special counsel after the firing of James Comey.
John Brennan has a lot to answer for—going before the American public for months, cloaked with CIA authority and openly suggesting he’s got secret info, and repeatedly turning in performances like this. pic.twitter.com/EziCxy9FVQ

The CIA’s John Brennan was among those who helped elevate the bogus narrative to the point where American intelligence authorities intervened. As was documented in the book Spygate, Brennan himself acknowledged that it was he who sparked the FBI’s investigation by passing British intelligence from spying on Trump associates to American intelligence agencies. According to one account, the leader of the GCHQ (the British version of the NSA), Robert Hannigan, passed material in summer 2016 to Brennan. The information was deemed so sensitive it was handled at “director level.” After an initially slow start, Brennan used GCHQ information and intelligence from other partners to launch a major inter-agency investigation.
And it was all a load of B.S.
So what’s Brennan doing now? Taking no responsibility while claiming that he must’ve simply been given bad information.
According to the New York Post:
Brennan admitted on Monday that he may have relied on “bad information” for his relentless attacks on President Trump.
Brennan — who once warned that “our Nation’s future is at stake” — told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he may have been misled on the extent of Trump’s connections to Russia.
“Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was,” Brennan said. “I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government over our election.”
We only have two options here. The first is that Brennan was pushing a bogus conspiracy to take down the Trump campaign – which I believe is the case. The second is that Brennan couldn’t discern good information from nonsense, which is hardly a quality the director of the CIA should have.
And isn’t spreading disinformation about the election what he was accusing the Russians of doing? Brennan just accused himself of doing the same.
