Former CIA Director John Brennan sent President Donald Trump warning on Friday right in the middle of the impeachment hearing being held by the House Intelligence Committee.
The U.S. ambassador to Ukraine who was removed from her position in May compared herself the men killed in Benghazi in her opening testimony and gave a rather tame testimony about losing her job in the Trump administration.
Trump immediately kicked of the hearing by tweeting about the fired ambassador saying, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go?” Trump claimed, adding “Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.”
Former CIA chief John Brennan apparently did not what Trump said about Yovanovitch. He immediately struck back at Trump with an ominous tweet reading: “Your comments reflect the despicable nature of your character, hate & fear of our foreign service officers & desperation to protect your corrupt & criminal acts. Your efforts to intimidate will fail. May your downfall be swift, your penalty onerous, & your legacy condemned by all,” Brennan said in a tweet Friday morning.”
Former Congressman Jason Chaffetz warned recently that the new IG criminal report will target people outside the Justice Department including former CIA Director John Brennan.
“And I now think [The IG Report] it’s going to envelop in people outside the Department of Justice. People like John Brennan and others, into other agencies and I think that will be, as we look back, the reason why it took months and months longer is because this tangled web is much further and deeper than just the people at the Department of Justice.”
This comes after reports that Brennan has been requested to be interviewed by Connecticut Attorney John Durham, who is looking into as confirmed by Brennan to NBC News.
Trump met with Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday. CNN confirmed that the Horowitz report was discussed in the meeting that caused him to show up 45 minutes late to his rally in Louisiana.
