President Trump Hammers ‘Loudmouth, Partisan, Political Hack’ John Brennan

Scott Morefield | Reporter

President Trump on Saturday highlighted “mistakes” made by former CIA Director John Brennan, calling him a “loudmouth, partisan, political hack who cannot be trusted with the secrets to our country.”

“Has anyone looked at the mistakes that John Brennan made while serving as CIA Director?” Trump tweeted. “He will go down as easily the WORST in history & since getting out, he has become nothing less than a loudmouth, partisan, political hack who cannot be trusted with the secrets to our country!”

Trump’s tweet comes three days after he decided to pull Brennan’s security clearance, provoking a lawsuit threat from the former CIA director.

“I think that’s why there’s been such an outcry from many intelligence professions, not to support me, but to support the principle that security clearances are something that’s very solemn and serious and should never ever be used for political purposes,” Brennan told Rachel Maddow. “As you can imagine, a number of lawyers have reached out to say there is a very strong case here, not so much to reclaim mine but to prevent this from happening in the future. And so, I am thinking about what it is that I might want to do.” (RELATED: James Comey Responds To John Brennan Security Clearance Loss)
