To John Brennan: Today President Trump granted our request (Jay Sekulow and me) to handle your case. After threatening if you don’t it would be just like Obama’s red lines. Come on John you’re not a blowhard?— Rudy Giuliani (@RudyGiuliani) August 20, 2018
The president also called out Mr. Brennan Monday morning, saying it would be easy to prove the former CIA director worked with the Mueller investigation.
“I hope John Brennan, the worst CIA Director in our country’s history, brings a lawsuit,” he tweeted.
“If my clearances and my reputation as I’m being pulled through the mud now, if that’s the price we’re going to pay to prevent Donald Trump from doing this against other people, to me, it’s a small price to pay,” Mr. Brennan said.
“Mr. Brennan has recently leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official with access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations — wild outbursts on the Internet and television — about this administration,” Mr. Trump said.
Mr. Brennan fired back the next day in a New York Times op-ed, saying there is no question that the president is guilty of collusion.
“Mr. Trump’s claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash,” Mr. Brennan wrote. ”Mr. Trump clearly has become more desperate to protect himself and those close to him, which is why he made the politically motivated decision to revoke my security clearance in an attempt to scare into silence others who might dare to challenge him.”
