Ex-CIA Head Brennan Regrets Attacking Trump: May Have 'Received Bad Information'

Ex-CIA Director John Brennan backtracks on anti-Trump attacks after Mueller's report has vindicated the president

After Mueller handed over his final report on the special counsel's Russia probe on Friday, exonerating the presdient of "Russian collusion" allegations, Americans on all sides have been sobering up to the reality that the investigation was based on nothing more than an anti-Trump hoax.

Aside from vindicating President Donald Trump, Robert Mueller's report has also drawn attention to those who have been fueling the deeply-polarizing campaign for the past two years.

Among the fiercest of Trump's critics has been former CIA Director John Brennan, who has now come forward with his tail between his legs to admit that he was wrong about his president and regrets perpetuating the conspiracy theories.

"I don't know if I received bad information but I suspected there was more than there actually was," Brennan said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"I am relieved that it's been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government over our election

"I think that is good news for the country."

Mueller concluded in his report that Trump and his campaign did not collude with Russians in order to improve his chances of beating Democrat Hillary Clinton

According to the Daily Mail, the special counsel did not draw a conclusion "one way or the other" as to whether the president obstructed justice during the Russia probe, according to the findings.

Mueller, instead, left that decision to Attorney General William Barr, who decided along with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein not to pursue that charge.

Brennan has been a fierce critic of the president.

He wrote in an August op-ed for The New York Times: "Mr. Trump's claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash."

Brennan said Monday there are still questions to be answered and pointed to an ongoing investigation into the president's business dealings by the Southern District of New York.

"I still believe there are a lot of questions that need to be answered, questions about why he's lied so much and so often," he said on MSNBC.

"I do think he, Donald Trump, is concerned that opening up an investigation on criminal conspiracy about working with the Russians would open up a Pandora's box of other types of things..."

"I think the referrals by Bob Mueller to the Southern District of New York and other places demonstrate there's a lot of investigative threads that could implicate Mr. Trump."

Brennan cast off his normally tight-lipped persona to become one of President Trump's harshest critics after he ended his tenure at America's top spy agency. 

In one example, he retweeted Trump in January, writing:

"Your cabal of unprincipled, unethical, dishonest, and sycophantic cronies is being methodically brought to justice. We all know where this trail leads. If your utter incompetence is not enough to run you out of office, your increasingly obvious political corruption surely will."

He predicted the Mueller probe could ensnare Trump family members.

He predicted, incorrectly, that Mueller would bring additional indictments dealing with criminal conspiracy.
