As the jaws of Bill Barr and John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump–Russia probe are beginning to clamp down, former CIA Director John Brennan is panicking.
Now, he has lashed out by attacking President Donald Trump.
Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch’s testimony in the House’s impeachment inquiry has led to a flood of Democrat hysterics and crocodile tears.
Trump had removed Yovanovitch from her post, and he explained the reason for this decision on Twitter, citing her record. For his part, Brennan took the opportunity to attack Trump.
In a longwinded tweet, Brennan huffed that the president’s “comments reflect the despicable nature of [his] character.”
Your comments reflect the despicable nature of your character, hate & fear of our foreign service officers & desperation to protect your corrupt & criminal acts. Your efforts to intimidate will fail. May your downfall be swift, your penalty onerous, & your legacy condemned by all https://t.co/ks9MJpfi6r

Trump’s comments alluded to Yovanovitch’s “bad record,” noting that he, as president, has the right to appoint and recall ambassadors. Brennan’s response to this very simple concept is telling.
Brennan desperately wants Trump gone because as long as Trump is in power, he is a threat to people like Brennan. Brennan doesn’t care about Yovonavitch — he is simply scared.
Heads will roll
Brennan will soon be interviewed by members of Durham’s investigative team, according to The Hill.
At issue is whether the warrants that started the Trump–Russia collusion investigation were based on false information. Obviously that would be illegal — and that is why Durham is hard at work investigating how these events all came about.
Will Brennan go down, along with many others, in Durham’s probe? Only time will tell. In the meantime, it looks like Brennan will spend his time discrediting Trump — a task he’s been trying to do since January 2017.
When will the witch hunt end?
