WOW! Obama-era CIA Director Suggests Coup If POTUS Fires Mueller (VIDEO)
President Trump’s war against the pervasive Deep State is slowly ratcheting up, as talk of Special Counsel Robert Mueller being fired is discussed inside the White House and Press more and more. The Deep State isn’t pleased.
During a panel session at the Aspen Security Forum, Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan could barely hide his contempt for President Trump, suggesting an executive branch decision to fire Mueller should result in the removal of the Commander-in-Chief. In other words, a coup.
In the most vocal opposition to president Donald Trump yet, former CIA Director John Brennan said that if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch.
“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.
The exchange is 43 minutes into the clip below:
Brennan has had it out for Trump even before he was president. The Former CIA director got the FBI’s probe of the Trump team rolling claiming back in May to the House Intelligence Committee that he was intercepting “tidbits on Trump associates making contacts with Russians.”
Washington Times reported:
“…[Brennan] believed the contacts were numerous enough to alert the FBI, which began its probe into Trump associates that same July, according to previous congressional testimony from then-FBI director James B. Comey.
The FBI probe of contacts came the same month the intelligence community fingered Russian agents as orchestrating hacks into Democratic Party computers and providing stolen emails to WikiLeaks.
Mr. Brennan, who has not hidden his dislike for Mr. Trump, testified he briefed the investigation’s progress to Mr. Obama, who at the time was trying to aid Hillary Clinton in her campaign against the Republican nominee.
As Mr. Brennan described his actions to the House committee: “I wanted to make sure that every information and bit of intelligence that we had was shared with the bureau [FBI] so that they could take it. It was well beyond my mandate as director of CIA to follow on any of those leads that involved U.S. persons. But I made sure that anything that was involving U.S. persons, including anything involving the individuals involved in the Trump campaign, was shared with the bureau.
“I was aware of intelligence and information about contacts between Russian officials and U.S. persons that raised concerns in my mind about whether or not those individuals were cooperating with the Russians, either in a witting or unwitting fashion, and it served as the basis for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion [or] cooperation occurred,” Mr. Brennan added.
Still to this day, neither the FBI or CIA has made an official statement laying out tangible events where any members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.
