Former CIA director made some strong predictions about the Mueller investigation a couple of weeks ago. He could not have been more wrong. Seriously.
The Daily Caller reported:
FLASHBACK: JOHN BRENNAN PREDICTED ADDITIONAL MUELLER INDICTMENTS JUST TWO WEEKS AGO
Former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan predicted just two short weeks ago that President Trump’s family members or associates would be indicted in the special counsel’s probe.
During an appearance on MSNBC on March 5, Brennan predicted that Mueller would issue indictments related to a “criminal conspiracy” involving Trump or his associates’ activities during the 2016 election. The forecast proved far off the mark on Friday after Robert Mueller ended his investigation without issuing new indictments.
“If anybody from the Trump family … is going to be indicted, it would be in the final act of Mueller’s investigation because Bob Mueller and I think his team knows that if he were to do something, indicting a Trump family member, or if he were to go forward with an indictment on a criminal conspiracy involving U.S. persons that would basically be the death knell of the special counsel’s office,” Brennan told anchor Lawrence O’Donnell.

Brennan got roasted for this on Twitter:
You can't blame MSNBC viewers for being confused. They largely kept dissenters from their Trump/Russia spy tale off the air for 2 years. As recently as 2 weeks ago, they had @JohnBrennan strongly suggesting Mueller would indict Trump family members on collusion as his last act: pic.twitter.com/nPlaq5YVxf

Now that Mueller has finished his investigation, it’s time to investigate these people who have entangled America in a 2 year national nightmare to destroy @realDonaldTrump

So the #MuellerReport is finished. No further indictments. Many folks looking really stupid today. @CNN @RepTedLieu @ericswalwell @SenBlumenthal @JohnBrennan and on, and on, and on… pic.twitter.com/3suFE3brnr

A prime example of cable news being more interested in affirming their audience’s views, rather than informing them.

Maybe Brennan should consider retirement.
