Democrats and their supporters on the left love John Brennan these days for all of his constant Trump bashing. But it wasn’t always that way. Back in 2014, plenty of Democrats wanted him to step down from the CIA.
FLASHBACK: When Democrats Demanded John Brennan Resign
Former CIA Director John Brennan is being held as a martyr by the left after President Trump stripped his security clearance last week. They’re defending Brennan as a truth teller, even a whistleblower, and claiming Trump is infringing on Brennan’s First Amendment rights by denying him access to classified information.
Townhall points to this 2014 report from The Hill:
Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) became the first senator to make the call when he issued a statement declaring that he had “no choice but to call for the resignation of CIA Director John Brennan.”
“The CIA unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into Senate Intelligence Committee computers,” he said.
“This grave misconduct not only is illegal, but it violates the U.S. Constitution’s requirement of separation of powers,” Udall continued. “These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA, demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences.”
Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), another member of the Intel panel, made the same demand later in the day.
Isn’t it funny how you never hear about this during any of Brennan’s media appearances?
