Gosh, Philip Rucker makes John Brennan out to sound like a pretty RAD and important guy …
John Brennan's public service:
-CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia
-CIA chief of staff
-Director of Terrorist Threat Integration Center
-Director of National Counter terrorism Center
-White House Homeland Security Adviser
-Briefed three presidents

Impressive, right? That whole Director of Terrorist Threat Integration Center sounds super important and stuff. Who knew we had a whole center for terrorist threat integration, whatever the Hell that is.
That being said, seems Philip left out a few pesky details when it comes to Brennan and his public service. Luckily, Dan Bongino was there to fill in the blanks:
John Brennan’s other “public service”:
-Using foreign intelligence connections to provide intel on an opposition campaign
-Spying on Hill communications to advance Obama’s political agenda.
-Lying about his spying under oath
-Pushing the collusion hoax despite no evidence. https://t.co/rf1XSe6wEI

So much boom.
In fact, the amount of boom in this list boomed so loudly that it stopped booming only to boom again.
Yeah, we noticed Philip left out that whole perjury thing …
But wait, Sean Davis had even more to add!
John Brennan was CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia when the Khobar Towers were bombed. He was deputy exec. director of the agency on 9/11. He was CIA chief of staff during the Iraq WMD debacle. And he ran the CIA when it spied on Congress (which he lied about under oath).

Huh, Sean mentioned perjury too.
Seeing a theme here.
-using his security clearance to make money…

He’s certainly been a popular guy on the ‘circuit’ these days, this is true.
I am still asking, after all these years, as to why anyone keeps clearance after leaving (other than those who continue to work for CIA, FBI)???

No idea, but apparently it’s some sort of Constitutional right.
