Former CIA Director (and nonpartisan American (Lolz)) John Brennan weighed in on President Donald Trump’s tweet lauding the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, going the full drama queen route:
When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you. https://t.co/uKppoDbduj

Dude, simmer down. Most of us still remember you were a Commie sympathizer back in the day who helped weaponize our surveillance state against a political opponent for purely political reasons. https://t.co/FrdoOWOXli

The IG report recommended McCabe be terminated. It seems Mr. Brennan disagrees with the IGs findings.
Oh well. https://t.co/ym8sXsVC0S

Samantha Power, who was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under former President Barack Obama, warned President Trump on Saturday that it was “not a good idea to piss off John Brennan” after the former CIA director told him in a tweet that America would “triumph over you.”
Brennan certainly has the bluster when he needs it, but just in case his tweet about America “triumphing over” the president it elected didn’t sound threatening enough, Barack Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations unmasked herself to give a warning to Trump:
Not a good idea to piss off John Brennan. https://t.co/VLg94OLL2R

Why exactly is that, pray tell? Any personal anecdotes to share, or are those being saved for yet another tell-all book?
Why? Are we supposed to construe his tweet as a threat to do something? If so, what? https://t.co/c0d8mqi21i

Why's that? Does John Brennan possess some extra-citizen special treatment? Or is he just a partisan appointed hack spouting off hackery (like you)? https://t.co/AR2tdn7Rlh

So Samantha Power is basically acknowledging the existence of Deep State weaponizing of the intelligence community to retaliate for political or personal reasons… Sad!😝 https://t.co/m8cdU4KYUx

Oh, Brennan will tweet again, you can bet on that. He might even do a guest panelist hit on MSNBC some night.
John Brennan is an MSNBC News Analyst. He's got powerful friends like Rachel Madddow. She might do a hard-hitting segment on Brennan's enemies. https://t.co/yBPHVwMR44

Veiled threat to Trump?
I remember Chuck Schumer making almost the same kind of threat …something about 6 ways to Sunday. https://t.co/B3mMNdkki8

So we're supposed to sit back and let corruption happen because exposing it is going to cause John Brennan to have a hissy fit? https://t.co/mKnSn0lwxA

This isn't Libya, Ms. Power. https://t.co/RpkpU7Tl3w

Libya is barely Libya anymore thanks to the bang-up job by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her entourage.
Why, because he'll decide to leak top secret information? You're encouraging lawlessness. Also, why did you feel it was necessary in your role as UN Ambassador to unmask Americans?https://t.co/U4bMew0Wht
— Jordan Schachtel (@JordanSchachtel) March 17, 2018
Oh here we go. The Obama Ambassador to the U.N. who unmasked hundreds of people a month before she was fired.
Another threat by the deep state. https://t.co/H4Qk7JYXxs

For sure, he might issue illegal FISA warrants to unmask you. https://t.co/1kMTVT2QAG

Maybe he can unmask 260 people. https://t.co/M03eTCKobo

Yeah…cause we'd hate to think more people might be unmasked and spied on illegally, huh?@SamanthaJPower

Obama administration allies have previously hinted at possible intelligence community retribution against Trump.
In January 2017, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., warned Trump that the intelligence community had “six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
