Never has the United States ever had a worse CIA Director than Obama’s pick the converted Muslim John Brennan.

It will be great to get this loser under oath.
Will he perjure himself?
Time will tell.

“We have lots of questions for John Brennan and he will definitely be sought by the committees for an interview,” Goodlatte said during a Fox News interview on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.
“This is an extremely disturbing thing to see both he and [former FBI] James Comey, supposedly impartial government officials carrying out their jobs in very important areas in intelligence gathering and law enforcement, express the kind of extreme bias that they’ve shown now, which I think reflects quite accurately on what they were doing back in 2016.”
Goodlatte was responding to an opinion piece this week by the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel, which Bartiromo said made the case that Brennan “deserves a bit of belated scrutiny.”
The op-ed by Stressel, titled “Brennan and the 2016 Spy Scandal,” discussed how Brennan sought to push into the public spotlight the narrative that Russia was interfering in the 2016 election to help Trump get elected — and specifically did so by contacting then-Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

“In a late August briefing, he told the Senate minority leader that Russia was trying to help Mr. Trump win the election, and that Trump advisers might be colluding with Russia.
(Two years later, no public evidence has emerged to support such a claim.),” Strassel wrote.
“But the truth was irrelevant,” she added. “On cue, within a few days of the briefing, Mr. Reid wrote a letter to Mr. Comey, which of course immediately became public” and insisted that the FBI investigate the matter.
Goodlatte added that as part of the Judiciary and Oversight Committees’ joint search for answers on the Russia investigation, he will also seek testimony from Comey, who was criticized in last month’s Justice Department inspector general report for deviating from department norms with his decision-making during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and Obama-era attorney general Loretta Lynch.
Following Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday, Brennan stepped up his attacks on the president, calling Trump’s performance during a joint press conference “nothing short of treasonous.”
