On Thursday, former CIA Director John Brennan, who has taken it upon himself to be a one-man band slamming President Trump, got more than he bargained for when he tweeted of the “steady collapse of a U.S. Presidency,” adding “I do take strong comfort in knowing that the rule of law & our great government institutions are prevailing.”
Unfortunately for Brennan, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham happened to notice Brennan’s tweet, and responded with a brutal torpedo of a tweet:
For those unaware of Ingraham’s reference, here’s The Guardian from July 2014 , which is decidedly leftist, and its own take on what happened:
The director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, issued an extraordinary apology to leaders of the US Senate intelligence committee on Thursday, conceding that the agency employees spied on committee staff and reversing months of furious and public denials. Brennan acknowledged that an internal investigation had found agency security personnel transgressed a firewall set up on a CIA network, which allowed Senate committee investigators to review agency documents for their landmark inquiry into CIA torture.
Yet speaking to Andrea Mitchell in March 2014, Brennan said, “As far as the allegations of, you know, CIA hacking into, you know, Senate computers, nothing could be further from the truth. I mean, we wouldn’t do that. I mean, that’s– that’s just beyond the scope of reason in terms of what we would do.”
