#1 "He’d been doing this well before Trump. As I have reported."

Obama must have had him looking at all the so called "enemies of Obama" during the first term

#2 No shit, Sherlocks. This isn't news.
Either McCarthy or Solomon (?) broke this story about Soetoro & Brennan's "war room" three years ago

#3 Now to investigate Biden's ties to Ukraine and 0Bama regime's ties to Iran.

But publicly.

#4 I do not think Brennan was tasked to investigate Trump. His efforts were to ensure that Trump would be investigated.

#5 Maybe, just maybe, CIA is - just a bit - too independent? Asking for a friend.

#6 /\. Hence DNI to clip CIA's wings or just another MASSIVE [deep-state] bureaucracy?

#7 I believe the CIA may have other financing ways...

#9 Ref #6. The DNI is a powerless non-entity created to provide the illusion of oversight and control.

#10 So the Central Intelligence Agency wasn't "enough" after 9/11. All part and parcel of government just getting bigger and bigger and BIGGER.

#11 #7 and #8, well, somebody got the money from all that Afghan opium.

#13 I thought CIA couldn't operate in the Us against US citizens?

#14 Personal slush fund as well. All on a "black" budget that nobody audits.

I want to see Brennan die in prison, in an orange jumpsuit.

#15 Re #13: LEGALLY, they can't. But those laws are for the little people.

#16 It's more likely that Brennan had ties to Russia than Trump. After all, It was Brennan who voted for a communist running in a U.S. election.

#17 But Russia's not Communist....I mean, wasn't the Cold War all about fighting "Communism"?

#18 More along the lines of breaking up the USSR and reducing Soviet influence.
