Former President Barack Obama couldn’t stand the fact that the American people elected Donald Trump to lead the United States.
Since Trump was elected, the “Deep State” has been working overtime to try and take him down. For those unaware, the Deep State consists of former Obama officials that still work in the government and who use their power to try and undermine Trump.
Former CIA Director John Brennan testified before the House Intelligence Committee on May 23 and tried to take Trump down in the process.
Conservative Tribune reports:
During that testimony, Brennan said he “encountered and am aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign that I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals,” according to The New York Times. That’s what caused him to contact the FBI and press for an investigation.
Sounds compelling. However, as the Washington Times points out, Brennan didn’t name either the Russian officials or the vague “U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign” that caused him concern. Nor did he know what was said.
And, perhaps even most disturbing was the fact that even though he has publicly expressed his dislike for Trump, he still set the wheels of the FBI investigation rolling by contacting the Bureau about the information. He also kept President Barack Obama abreast of the details, even though the president was literally Hillary Clinton’s most powerful supporter.
“I wanted to make sure that every information and bit of intelligence that we had was shared with the bureau so that they could take it,” Brennan said.
“It was well beyond my mandate as director of CIA to follow on any of those leads that involved U.S. persons. But I made sure that anything that was involving U.S. persons, including anything involving the individuals involved in the Trump campaign, was shared with the bureau.”
Brennan admitted that this “served as the basis for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion (or) cooperation occurred.”
Clearly Brennan is pushing his own agenda and it is likely tied to the Deep State. What do you think about this?
