Fmr CIA Director Brennan: I Think Tillerson Was Fired for Being ‘Far Too Principled,’ Haspel ‘Should Be

Don’t Let the Door Hit Ya


Under the Constitution, the legislature, the Congress and Senate, are in charge of domestic policy. The President of the United States effectively sets foreign policy. That’s the way it designed to work.

Therefore the President, with the advice and consent of the Senate, gets to appoint the Secretary of State, his chief foreign affairs adviser. One would naturally assume that anyone the president chooses would be on the same page, as it were. After all, it’s the Secretary’s job to implement the President’s foreign policy designs. It is certainly not the job of him or her to develop or attempt to implement his or her own policy. The State Department is there to do the president’s bidding. In other words, one might say that the Secretary should be “sufficiently loyal” to the President. 

But not according to former CIA Chief, turned MSNBC Senior National Security and Intelligence Contributor, and current resident Trump basher John Brennan. Brennan makes California democrat Congressman Adam Schiff sound almost reasonable. Well…almost.

Ian Hanchett recently observed  an exchange between an MSNBC anchor and Brennan.

“On Tuesday’s ‘MSNBC Live,’ MSNBC Senior National Security and Intelligence Contributor and former CIA Director John Brennan argued that outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was dismissed because he ‘was far too principled, and not sufficiently loyal to Donald Trump,’ and stated that newly designated CIA Director Gina Haspel ‘should be confirmed.’”

  2. Brennan is a douche. Period. I consider HIS endorsement of Haspel as Pompeo’s successor the single BAD mark against her. What did she do that DBag-Brennan liked her so much?

    I think Tillerson and Trump were more closely aligned at the beginning when they were two non-politician successful businessmen. Tillerson’s viewpoint had been formed over years of dealings where political considerations were more prominent and he could not afford to alienate anyone. As an oil co exec, he learned to appease–his/their leverage was far less than USA leverage. Over time, Trump has gained a different viewpoint with his increasing actual knowledge on many things that had not had direct impact on him [so his opinions were “malleable” as ‘Jimmah Cahter’ said on them] but Tillerson’s were formed with far more knowledge from the start and have not changed. He was a silent member of the Foggy Bottom swamp culture all along. This became more and more apparent over time so why did DJT keep him so long? JE Dyer at Liberty Unyielding has an interesting, and IMO accurate angle to this–
