Trump's quest for vengeance against John Brennan

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by OKNancy (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

resident Donald Trump’s obsession with former CIA director John Brennan could be on a collision course with an ongoing Justice Department probe as Attorney General Bill Barr takes a more hands-on approach to examining the intelligence community’s actions in 2016.

Barr has been meeting with the U.S.’ closest foreign intelligence allies in recent months, making repeated overseas trips as part of an investigation he is overseeing into the origins of the Russia probe and whether any inappropriate “spying” occurred on Trump’s campaign.

As part of that investigation, Barr and John Durham, the federal prosecutor he appointed to conduct it, have been probing a conspiracy theory for which there is little if any evidence, according to several people with knowledge of the matter: that a key player in the Russia probe, a professor named Joseph Mifsud, was actually a Western intelligence asset sent to discredit the Trump campaign — and that the CIA, under Brennan, was somehow involved.

Trump, meanwhile, has become “obsessed” with Brennan, who frequently gets under the president’s skin by publicly questioning his mental acuity and fitness for office, according to a former White House official. On Brennan, “it was always, ‘he’s an idiot, he’s a crook, we ought to investigate him,’” this person said, characterizing Trump’s outbursts.

1. Barr acting as a fixer for Trump instead of as Atty General of the US.

What an evil being.

2. Trump knows that Brennan knows that he is in bed w/the Russian mob, Putin, and the Saudis

Thank God we have real patriots like Brennan. Trump is part of the biggest crime in American
history. You can't be for America and Trump at the same time.

BTW Natasha Bertrand is hot.

3. What a joke

We're supposed to "get over it" and the Mueller and impeachment investigations are because we can't accept the results of the 2016 election. Seems to me the Republicans are the ones who can't "get over it" and let it go--and they *won* for god's sake! How much more time in the Trump residency is going to be wasted on trying to proved he really did win?

4. So sorry, but this is not Breaking news. - locking

This is a great article. I read it earlier today. I thought then about posting it in GD, but got distracted.
This is an analysis of Trump and Barr's feelings about Brennan and the intelligence groups.
It's not really breaking news.

Please re-post in GD...
