Outgoing CIA Chief Warns Trump To Watch His Tongue

The outgoing CIA director John Brennan has warned Donald Trump to watch what he says while blasting the US president-elect for comparing the intelligence community to Nazi Germany.

“What I do find outrageous is equating intelligence community with Nazi Germany,” Brennan said on Sunday, days after Trump blamed intelligence agencies for the release of unconfirmed reports about his ties with Russia.

Trump took to twitter to accuse US spy agencies of leaking “phony allegations” against him to the media even when they knew there was no proof.

Brennan also said that once Trump is inaugurated things will be different for him and that he’ll have responsibilities beyond just “talking and tweeting.”

Press TV reports:

Infuriated by the report, Trump went on a Twitter rant, saying that the intelligence community should be held into account for allowing “this fake news to ‘leak.’”

“One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?” his tweet read.

Brennan took offense at Trump’s analogy, advising the incoming president to avoid “spontaneity” and “understand” the impact of his words before uttering them.

“I do take great umbrage with that and there is no basis for Mr. Trump to point fingers at the intelligence community for leaking information that was already available publicly,” the spymaster said.

“Spontaneity is not something that protects national security interests,” he argued. “And so therefore when he speaks or when he reacts, just make sure he understands that the implications and impact on the United States could be profound.”

The remarks further exposed the simmering tensions between the president-elect and the intelligence community.

Last week, Trump rejected the findings of a confidential intelligence report by the CIA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National Security Agency (NSA), which accused Russia of hacking Democratic Party emails to influence the US election.

    Well Mr. Brennan, Mr. Trump was not far off on that comparison. You know damn well what your agency has been doing, and we know what you’re THINKING of doing.

    ” Intelligence community “…? Protecting the Twin Towers ? Or the Pentagon ? Or the Bush WMDs ? Or 16 years of occupying and bombing the middle east ? How about spying on every law abiding American citizen . The difference is the armband .

    Let’s face the reality, USA is boarding the same lines of natzi Germany. The cia is guilty if many things including killing jfk and importing tons of cocaine into the usa to destroy the black communities across the USA. That is 2 of many things they did. We need a change before this world implodes or explodes and we are left with nuthing. All of those cia and Clinton traders need to be hung by the neck to demonstrate what should be done to the scumbags that destroy lives and this planet.

    SO!!! Brennan likes to have his way with whoever he can have his way with. That is why he is unsuitable for public service or freedom in an open society.

    On Jan. 17, 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower gave the nation a dire warning about what he described as a threat to democratic government. He called it the military-industrial complex, a formidable union of defense contractors and the armed forces….American President John F. Kennedy wanted to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds…
    Bernie Sanders Supported Him. The National Archives retains a trove of more than 3,500 JFK assassination records, obtained by Tunheim’s review board, that have never been seen by the public. The records are historically significant. The JFK Records Act of 1992 mandates the release of all of these records by October 26, 2017.
