Donald Trump Dares Former CIA Director John Brennan To Sue Him
The President said that Brennan would not follow through on 'legal action'
Following former CIA Director John Brennan's recent response of 'considering legal' action after Trump removed his security clearance, the President responded again by daring the erratic former operative to sue him.
Trump said on Monday that he hoped John O. Brennan sues him before accusing him of being in cahoots with the Mueller investigation.
The President said that Brennan would not follow through on 'legal action' because it would then expose how he was involved with the with the "Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt.”
Brennan told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow about considering legal action in response to the president's revocation of his security clearance.
“I think that’s why there’s been such an outcry from many intelligence professions, not to support me, but to support the principle that security clearances are something that’s very solemn and serious and should never ever be used for political purposes,” the former director began.
“As you can imagine, a number of lawyers have reached out to say there is a very strong case here, not so much to reclaim mine but to prevent this from happening in the future."And so, I am thinking about what it is that I might want to do,” Brennan stated.
I hope John Brennan, the worst CIA Director in our country’s history, brings a lawsuit. It will then be very easy to get all of his records, texts, emails and documents to show not only the poor job he did, but how he was involved with the Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt.

Brennan recently called for the death penalty against President Donald Trump, according to Senator Rand Paul. Senator Paul praised Trump's decision to remove the security clearance from former CIA Director John Brennan for "lying and “erratic conduct.”
“I’ve been calling for a review of the security clearances of a lot of folks…for months and months.”
Rand Paul appeared on Fox News to discuss his recent diplomatic trip to Russia and his public endorsement of the President's revoking of the security clearance of former CIA head John Brennan.
