Former Senior level Obama Administration officials keep trolling President Donald Trump with alarming rhetoric.
Not surprisingly, it’s many of the same players who touted their role in investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
John Brennan’s Most recent Troll
Former CIA Director John Brennan is the most recent troll.
“Your cabal of unprincipled, unethical, dishonest, and sycophantic cronies is being methodically brought to justice,” Brennan Tweeted at Trump. Brennan was responding to Trump’s tweet regarding Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of Roger Stone for lying to congress.
“If Roger Stone was indicted for lying to Congress, what about the lying done by (James) Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Lisa Page & lover, Baker and soooo many others,” said Trump.
Brennan has made outlandish statements against Trump many times before.
Apparently many people, including editorial writers for The Washington Post, suspected Brennan had lied to Congress on multiple past occasions. In fact, one opinion editorial asked Obama to fire him.
For example, Brennan claimed in 2011 that no civilians were killed in dozens of U.S. drone strikes on overseas. Later that claim was thoroughly disputed. During this time, he was the counterterrorism adviser so he would’ve known. Brennan also flat out denied that his agency spied on Senate computers. This denial came approximately six weeks after Feinstein first made the accusation to the CIA in private about the spying. He later apologized.
Your cabal of unprincipled, unethical, dishonest, and sycophantic cronies is being methodically brought to justice. We all know where this trail leads. If your utter incompetence is not enough to run you out of office, your increasingly obvious political corruption surely will. https://t.co/S6DMeGICXZ

David Laufman Trolls Trump Too
Several weeks ago it was David Laufman, former head of the Justice Department’s counterintelligence unit, who trolled Trump with alarmist comments on MSNBC.
Laufman helped supervise the controversial probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, as well as Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. He cited personal reasons for his departure but many sources suggested it was his role in the FBI’s failed handling of the Clinton and Trump probes that ended his career.
Trump was a threat to U.S. national security, Laufman said, because the president wanted to conceal details of his meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Never once did Laufman say Trump has been the target of extraordinary national security leaks and maybe this is the reason why.
Instead he told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, “it’s a painful anguishing thing to acknowledge that the president of the United States is a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States.”
“The notion that the president of the United States would be trying to conceal the details of conversations with the leader of our principal foreign adversary was positively chilling,” said Laufman.
What’s chilling is the number of former officials allegedly under investigation by the DOJ for mishandling the investigation into Trump’s haven’t hesitated for a moment to undermine the president.
Their words do have consequences and their actions unlike any we’ve seen in history.
