Ex-CIA Director John Brennan nails Trump: ‘Impossible for you to escape justice’

Former CIA Director John Brennan on Monday fired back at President Donald Trump over his latest tweet attacking the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.


After Trump claimed that there is no “smocking gun” proving his campaign conspired with Russian officials, Brennan responded by gloating that the president must know he’s in deep legal jeopardy to post such frantic and misspelled messages on social media.

“Whenever you send out such inane tweets, I take great solace in knowing that you realize how much trouble you are in and how impossible it will be for you to escape American justice,” Brennan wrote. “Mostly, I am relieved that you will never have the opportunity to run for public office again.”

Earlier this year, the Trump White House revoked Brennan’s security clearance on the grounds that the former CIA chief was trying to “sow division and chaos” with his criticisms of the president.
