Ex-CIA Chiefs Decry Trump Yanking Brennan Status

(2018-08-18) — A dozen former CIA officials penned an open letter alleging President Donald Trump revoked former CIA boss John Brennan’s security clearances as a unprecedented “political tool”, and demanded restoration of Brennan’s top-secret access to help him make political attacks against Trump on TV and in newspapers.

The letter, signed by intel chiefs dating back to the Reagan administration, noted that “It’s tough to get in front of the cable news cameras if they think you don’t know anything more than the average person who watches cable news. Who’s going to book a retired know-nothing? Without cable news hits, it’s tougher to get book deals and consulting gigs, or to position oneself for work in a future administration. Next thing you know, you’ll see these very important men living in cardboard boxes under a bridge.”

While some of the signatories of the letter disagree with Brennan’s political attacks on Trump, they noted that “conscience demands that one know upon which side one’s bread is buttered. Face it: without security clearances, we’re all just asterisks in the history books.”

Trump Silences Ex-CIA Boss, Times Op-Ed Claims

(2018-08-16) — Former CIA Director John Brennan said President Donald Trump yanked his security clearance to silence his criticism of Trump. Brennan’s influence and voice has been eliminated, he said in an op-ed in today’s New York Times and on MSNBC.

Trump pulled the Obama administration official’s clearances because the president believes Brennan deceptively instigated what became the Mueller investigation, and has kept up a relentless attack against the president, which The White House said has national security implications.

In his Times column, Brennan calls Trump’s claim that there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia, “hogwash.”

“Like a dictator, Trump shut me down and squelched my voice,” Brennan wrote in the globally-distributed news source. “No one can hear me now. Free speech is dead, and Trump will run amok.”

“I don’t know why I go on,” the former CIA chief added, “since no one reads The New York Times or watches MSNBC. Hello…is this thing on?”

Putin Groomed ‘Brilliant Double-Agent’ Trump

(2018-07-20) — Sources in the Kremlin said today that former KGB agent Vladimir Putin began grooming young Donald Trump as an intel asset decades before either man became president.

“Young Putin met Trump by chance, but immediately recognized in him the cunning, genius, strategic thinking, tactical mastery, and discretion required to be a brilliant double-agent,” according to an unnamed source close to the Russian president.

The revelation, of course, presumes Trump was already in the pay of the CIA, and that Putin hoped he could be turned.

“Putin plied Trump with money, women, book and personal branding deals, and fame out-of-proportion to his accomplishments,” the Kremlin source said. “Trump lapped it up, but never let on that he had become part of a long game to be Putin’s White House puppet.”

The two allegedly conspired, decades in advance, to lay the groundwork for a successful Republican presidential campaign, by having Trump cheat on and abandon wives, dive into the gambling industry, donate generously to Democrats, and studiously avoid learning about matters of policy, governance, or conservatism.

”All of Putin’s careful work has come to fruition,” the anonymous source added, “with the almost-inevitable election of a man who slavishly obeys what he’s told, and never veers from the script written by his handlers.”

The shocking revelation explains Trump’s obsequious news conference after the Helsinki summit last week, and makes his impeachment and conviction nearly as certain as Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election victory.
