Former CIA Director John Brennan is fussing about having his security clearances revoked and now threatens to fight President Donald Trump in court. It appears as though Brennan wishes to save face in regards to his reputation, and has reportedly stated that he would be willing to take Trump to court. This is turning into a drama that one could only imagine watching on television with some popcorn and a fine glass of red wine. Brennan appears to be coming hard for President Trump, but Donald is telling him to bring it. He’s not scared and he’s facing his adversary right on Twitter for everyone to watch. Trump dares him to bring a lawsuit which will then open Brennan up for being potentially exposed for other things. Trump doesn’t have much else to be exposed for. Anything people are looking for hasn’t been found (because it’s probably fake) and Trump puts everything else on Twitter.
Trump battled back against the now revoked CIA director, stating “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. He won’t sue!”

It was just a day ago that The Guardian reported on Brennan threatening “legal action against Donald Trump, after he was summarily stripped of his security clearance in an unprecedented display of presidential pique.” They then reported that Brennan stated on NBC’s Meet the Press that he wasn’t about to be cowered by Trump nor his action to “deprive him of access to classified information.”
Brennan claimed to have been contacted by multiple lawyers and that he was considering what options he has. He also reportedly told NBC that Trump was revoking his security clearances as a way to “scare other existing and former government officials.”
Whatever the reasoning for revoking a former CIA directors security clearances is, doesn’t matter. He’s the FORMER CIA Director, not the current director, so it still remains to be seen why Brennan needs clearances anymore if he’s not currently working for the government. Or is he?
When Brennan threatened to take legal action, Trump heard about it and dropped a bombshell on Twitter basically inviting and double-dog-daring Brennan to bring it in court and hit Trump with his best shot.
Trump’s big daring words might bring back some childhood memories of “The Christmas Story” and John Brennan might be the boy with his tongue on the pole. ”
If Brennan takes Trump to court and loses, then he will look embarrassing. It’s better if he #WalksAway and carries on with his next career move. Otherwise, then go ahead, Brennan. Put your tongue on the pole and watch all crowd run to the window and laugh, just like they did in that beloved movie.
Does it sound like we’re getting ready for a legal fight, or are people just blowing smoke at each other?
