John Brennan Rips Donald Trump’s ‘Depravity and Incompetence’ in Final, Scathing Tweetstorm

Former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan took a massive final swipe at President Donald Trump on Monday night, writing on Twitter that he “felt compelled to condemn Trump’s depravity and incompetence.”

“For four years, I spoke out vigorously against Donald Trump’s craven dishonesty, corrupt pursuit of personal interests, & trampling of our democratic principles. After serving over three decades in national security, I felt compelled to condemn Trump’s depravity & incompetence,” Brennan, who served under President Barack Obama, tweeted. “My outspokenness has brought criticism, retaliation by the Trump Administration, & threats by those blinded by Trump’s demagoguery. Yes, it is unusual for a former CIA Director to speak out, but when an autocrat descended upon the White House, silence was not an option for me.”

Brennan said that he hopes Trump faces justice for his unprecedented corruption and criminality, and then praised President-Elect Joe Biden’s picks to lead the nation’s national security agencies.

He added that while he will no longer mention Trump on social media, he will continue to hold public officials accountable for their actions.

“I now plan to ignore Trump. I leave his fate to our judicial system, his infamy to history, & his legacy to a trash heap. The national security team of P-E Biden and VP-E Harris has numerous challenges ahead of it & wise national security policies merit strong bipartisan support,” said Brennan. “And while I will refrain from referencing Donald Trump in Twittersphere again, I will not hesitate to denounce public officials of any political stripe who I believe betray the trust of the American people or engage in unethical, unprincipled, or corrupt activities. I promise.”

Fifty-seven days until the inauguration.
