John Brennan reacted to comments President Trump made during an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday night.
“I don’t think it is surprising at all that we continue to hear there sociopathic ramblings from Mr. Trump claiming there was this effort to try to prevent him from being elected or to try to unseat him. I welcome any type of continued investigation in terms of what I testified in front of Congress,” he told MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson.
Brennan also disputed Sen. Rand Paul’s, R-Ky., claim that he “insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report.”
BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report… Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.

“That’s absolutely incorrect and 180 degrees from the truth. It was CIA that was pushing not to have it included, not to have it taken into account at all in that intelligence community assessment. I testified in front of Congress and I will continue to do it. This was something that Jim Comey and the FBI thought it was appropriate that Mr. Trump, who was going to become the President of the United States, would be aware of this report that is circulating and how it could be exploited by the Russians or others to try to undermine this government,” said Brennan.
