The former CIA director has been slammed for branding President Trump a ‘disgraced demagogue’ who will be confined to ‘the dustbin of history’.
Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul blasted John Brennan on Sunday for suggesting that will be how the President is remembered.
Paul hit back at the former director, saying that him spying on Americans while running the agency was disgraceful.
‘This man had the power to search every American’s records without a warrant,’ Paul tweeted Sunday.
‘What’s disgraceful is attacking the Bill of Rights and the freedom of every American.’
The fierce exchange came after Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired FBI official Andrew McCabe two days before his retirement and eligibility for a full pension.
Sessions said he fired McCabe, the FBI’s onetime deputy director, following an FBI report and an inspector general’s report on McCabe’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers while she was secretary of state.
Brennan posted to Twitter: ‘When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history’, apparently referring to President Trump (pictured)
Brennan, who declares himself non-partisan on his Twitter page, posted: ‘When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history.
Paul’s (pictured) disapproval of Brennan is well known and goes back years
‘You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you.’
Paul’s disapproval of Brennan is well known and goes back years, Fox News reported.
He staged a historic 13-hour filibuster on the Senate floor in 2013 to block Barack Obama’s nomination of Brennan to lead the CIA.
The senator demanded to know whether the administration would execute a drone strike on an American on U.S. soil.
Just 18 months later Paul joined in a bipartisan call to have Brennan removed as the CIA chief.
The call came after revelations the agency had spied on Senate Intelligence Committee staffers.
