John Brennan: 'I Plan to Ignore Trump' and 'Leave His Fate to Our Judicial System'
Former CIA director takes shots at President on Twitter
Former CIA Director John Brennan took to Twitter to boast about President Donald Trump’s apparent defeat, despite the results only being projected by the establishment media, and not officially
Brennan suggested Trump may also be in legal jeopardy.
The former Obama CIA director, who has been frequently attacking the president since he took office four years ago, says he will henceforth be silent about Trump.
“I now plan to ignore Trump," Brennan said.
"I leave his fate to our judicial system, his infamy to history, & his legacy to a trash heap,” he said, before praising Joe Biden and Kamla Harris.
I now plan to ignore Trump. I leave his fate to our judicial system, his infamy to history, & his legacy to a trash heap. The national security team of P-E Biden and VP-E Harris has numerous challenges ahead of it & wise national security policies merit strong bipartisan support.— John O.

But Brennan took a few more shots at Trump despite his vow of silence, saying:
“For four years, I spoke out vigorously against Donald Trump’s craven dishonesty, corrupt pursuit of personal interests, & trampling of our democratic principles."
"After serving over three decades in national security, I felt compelled to condemn Trump’s depravity & incompetence,” he said.
“My outspokenness has brought criticism, retaliation by the Trump Administration, & threats by those blinded by Trump’s demagoguery."
"Yes, it is unusual for a former CIA Director to speak out, but when an autocrat descended upon the White House, silence was not an option for me," Brennan added.
Brennan, who had his security clearance revoked by Trump in 2018, claimed earleir this month it was “outrageous” that Republicans were not urging POTUS to stop claiming “wide-scale fraud" after the election.
During an interview on MSNBC’s "Deadline," the former CIA chief claimed Trump was trying to derail Joe Biden's "inevitable" inauguration.
“I am just very concerned that Donald Trump right now is thinking and talking with his advisers and his inner circle of people, to see what he can do to try to derail, what I think is the inevitable inauguration of Joe Biden," Brennan said.
"And so it is up to people like William Barr now, the attorney general who has demonstrated he’s willing to be Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, to stand up and to refuse any type of direction that he may get."
