Ex-CIA Director: Intel Community May Withhold ‘Sensitive’ Info From Trump

(Congressional Agenda) – Former CIA Director John Brennan sat down for an interview with MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace last Thursday evening where he revealed the intelligence community might try to withhold “sensitive” information from Trump, even if he is confirmed as the Republican Party nominee. The deep state is always finding some new avenue of attack, aren’t they? Anything to stop Trump from coming out victorious in the general election and once again taking up residence in the White House.

“The MSNBC senior national security and intelligence analyst, expressed his belief that Trump will be briefed on some national security information – according to the 72-year tradition of sitting administrations tapping U.S. intelligence officials to brief the presidential candidates of major political parties – however, he will not get highly sensitive information,” Fox News reported.

One of the excuses that Brennan offered for not allowing Trump to access intelligence information is his indictment for allegedly mishandling classified documents, making the suggestion that if the former president had access to such information, he might abuse it. Hey, Biden did the exact same thing and yet, here we are. No one is making a fuss about him being made privy to classified information and we’re talking about a man inherently suffering from dementia as well. It seems to me that guy would pose more of a danger than Trump.

“Brennan’s assessment came in response to Wallace bringing up a new Politico article detailing how U.S. intelligence officials are planning to brief Trump but have reservations due to ‘his handling of classified information,'” the piece noted.

The article then said that the “normally humdrum decision was fraught with unusual risk this year due to the pending court case and Trump’s historically cavalier attitude toward national security information.”

Brennan went on to tell Wallace, “It’s somewhat surreal that an individual who is under indictment for mishandling classified information is going to be getting classified intelligence briefings.”

“He acknowledged that it is ‘tradition’ for sitting presidents to offer these briefings, and thus ‘it makes sense’ for Biden to do so. However, the former CIA boss hinted that intelligence leaders will not be giving particularly sensitive information that Trump could abuse,” Fox divulged.

“Now, I’m pretty certain that my former intelligence colleagues will provide briefings that are not going to do any type of damage to sources and methods in terms of providing information to Donald Trump that he could misuse,” Brennan stated.

The former director of the CIA then provided details concerning what might be included in a Trump briefing, going on to say, “But they will provide analytic overviews and briefings about some of the world’s hot spots, letting Donald Trump know what the assessments are at this point.”

He remarked, “I think it’s going to be analysis that will be devoid of the sources and methods, the sensitive things that we are most concerned about, the types of things that were in all those documents that he had in the bathroom and all those areas in Mar-a-Lago.”

Brennan finished by stating that once Trump accepts the briefings, “he probably will disparage them as he has disparaged U.S. intelligence officers as well as U.S. intelligence itself for so long over so many years.”

This isn’t the first time Brennan has tried to spin a narrative of Trump compromising U.S. intelligence and serving as a foreign agent. He continually pushed the now debunked theory that Trump was working closely with Russia to cheat and win the election against twice-failed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

  1. I am willing to bet that Donald Trump knows ten times more than any cabinet official right now and twenty times more than Kamala

  2. Curiously, the impeachments and indictments have proven to be bogus and incapable of being prosecuted against President Trump. It seems the issue is whether the traitors in the intel community are brought to justice and those traitors should be prosecuted and prevented from compromising our national security. Start with Brennan … bring him before Jm Jordan’s Committee.

  3. John Brennan is a proven liar and conspirator against the rights of the people. If he wants sensitive information kept from Donald Trump, he is too late regarding his swimming on the far left side of the Deep Swamp, his voting for the presidential candidate of the Communist Party USA, and his conversion to Islam while in Saudi Arabia.

  4. John Brennan is the one who should not receive security information. He is a liar and a deceitful person who should be banished from public commentary.

  5. Trump’s cavalier attitude? With biden spewing classified info to his ghost writer who has NO security clearance. Not to mention storing such info in an old garage in his car? Talk about two-tiered justice and hypocrisy.

  6. If elected Trump should pull the clearances of at least half of the 51 military people(plus Hillary) that signed that letter to Joe Biden. It’s now proven that the letter was just a political ploy and mostly made up of lies from former partisan hacks for Biden.

  7. Brennan must have a different copy of the Constitution than the rest us. His starts the BILL 0f RIGHTS with EXCEPT TRUMP.
