Former CIA Director Takes a Skinning Knife to the Mango Mussolini

This is language you don't hear every day, or at least most of us don't.  Former CIA director, John Brennan, apparently enraged at the punitive firing of former FBI deputy director, Andrew McCabe, two days before McCabe's scheduled retirement, laid into Trump.

Former CIA Director John Brennan is accusing President Donald Trump of “venality, moral turpitude and political corruption” for rejoicing over the firing of the FBI’s deputy director.

Brennan responded Saturday to a tweet Trump sent hours after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he had fired Andrew McCabe. Trump has repeatedly accused McCabe of dishonesty.

Brennan tweeted to Trump: “When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you.”

Meanwhile word is out that McCabe, like his former boss, James Comey, memorialized his conversations with Trump. Hmmm, more memos. I expect McCabe, his pension trimmed by Trump's vindictive move, will want those documents aired in public.

McCabe fired back at Trump, blasting the Grifter in Chief for using him as a scapegoat. Vox has McCabe's statement here.

If Trump is succeeding at anything it's wracking up enemies, people in high places. At the moment Trump appears to have the whip hand but he's too stupid and mentally infirm to pull this one off. I don't think Brennan was simply venting.

sounds like a cage match to determine which set of thugs gets to rule.

Cage match or not, distractions keep USA off balance while dealing with Russia, China and even Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the ME. Seems like a pretty powerful group.

Anon, are you a bot? I'm not sure and so I can't give you the benefit of the doubt. You're gone. Adios.
