It’s not as if anyone was asking for former CIA Director John Brennan to offer his take on current events, but no one was asking for James Comey’s, either, and we still got it. So basically, a tweet like this was inevitable:
The damage being inflicted by @realDonaldTrump on our national conscience & our government is tragic.
Members of Congress & staffers who defend & misrepresent his indefensible actions are telling Americans it’s ok to be dishonest, unethical, & corrupt.
How far we have fallen.

It’s easy for Brennan to sit up there on his high horse when he’s so obviously willing to overlook his own history of corruption. His record is nothing to be proud of. Donald Trump’s no angel, to be sure, but what we’re looking at here is a pretty classic case of projection.
