'He's Disgraced the Country': Bongino Rips Brennan Over Trump-Bashing Tweet
Dan Bongino said Monday that John Brennan's ominous weekend message on Twitter showed that the former CIA director is "panicking."
Brennan was responding to President Trump's tweet that he'd demand the Justice Department investigate whether the agency itself or the FBI probed his 2016 campaign for "political purposes."
I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes - and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

Brennan said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan would "bear major responsibility" if they continued to "enable" Trump’s "self-serving actions."
Senator McConnell & Speaker Ryan: If Mr. Trump continues along this disastrous path, you will bear major responsibility for the harm done to our democracy. You do a great disservice to our Nation & the Republican Party if you continue to enable Mr. Trump’s self-serving actions. https://t.co/uAhgL6wfIC

"John Brennan has disgraced himself, he's disgraced the country [and] he's disgraced the intelligence community," said Bongino, a former Secret Service agent and current NRA TV contributor.
"He is the one man largely responsible for the destruction of Americans' faith in the intelligence community."
Bongino added that he believes Brennan is the "genesis" behind the entire investigation into the president.
Brennan is no stranger to criticizing Trump. He blasted the president in March over his apparent coziness with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you. https://t.co/uKppoDbduj

Bongino said that Brennan is panicking because he's worried about his reputation and about "felonious criminal leaks".
