Ex-CIA Chief John Brennan Encourages Deep State to Defy President Trump

Former CIA Director John Brennan said government officials were obligated to “push back’ against President Donald Trump’s order to declassify documents and text messages related to the Russia investigation.

Bloomberg is reporting that the FBI and the DOJ will ignore Trump’s order and release only heavily redacted documents that provide no evidence of the wrongdoing that the plotters of the stealth coup have been involved in.

Basically, the FBI and the DOJ are daring President Trump to do something about this blatant insubordination.

TGP:

The Deep State is in an obvious panic mode since President Donald Trump ordered a number of documents relating to the Russia investigation be declassified. Joining the loud choir of those who are pushing for insubordination against the president is former CIA Director John Brennan.

Appearing on MSNBC on Tuesday, Brennan urged people in the intelligence community to ignore the president’s order. The former CIA head was stripped of his security clearance by Trump in August for his bizarre behavior.

“A number of individuals are trying to protect Mr. Trump and abusing their authorities and their powers, whether it be in Congress or within the executive branch,” Brennan said.

“And this is something that I am hoping that individuals of conscience are going to stop and prevent because I am concerned that this is just one indication that Mr. Trump is going to increasingly look for steps to take in order to further try to subvert the Mueller investigation,” Brennan continued.

Brennan joins Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Senator Mark Warner, and Senator Charles Schumer who sent a letter to the heads of the intelligence agencies demanding that they commit an act of insubordination and defy the presidential order.

“Your agencies’ review, and any communication with the White House on the substance of the material, should not proceed further until you have briefed the Gang of Eight in person,” the letter orders.

The intelligence agencies serve at the pleasure of the president — and this clearly crosses the line separating the branches of government.

On Monday, President Trump went scorched earth and ordered the DOJ to publicly release all text messages WITHOUT REDACTION relating to the Russia investigation from James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. More

In other words… Brennan says: “I don’t want to get caught, red-handed, in my complicit leaking of classified info and then lying about it! I don’t want to wear prison orange! Save me!”
