Trump hits John Brennan’s big raw nerve when he mentions him in tweet about Roger Stone

In an early morning tweet Saturday, President Donald Trump wondered aloud why corrupt members of the left were being allowed to get off scot-free with their glaring lies.

“If Roger Stone was indicted for lying to Congress, what about the lying done by Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Lisa Page & lover, Baker and soooo many others?” he wrote.

“What about Hillary to FBI and her 33,000 deleted Emails? What about Lisa & Peter’s deleted texts & Wiener’s laptop? Much more!”


The president posted the tweet a day after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted his former campaign adviser Roger Stone on seven counts, including obstruction, making false statements and witness tampering in regard to the investigation into alleged Russian collusion.

Like others in the past, the tweet hit a big fat nerve with angry former CIA director John Brennan:

As noted by a number of prominent commentators and pundits, the charges against Stone all pertain to process crimes, i.e., those committed because of the failed investigation.

Suppose your mom accuses you of stealing a cookie from the cookie jar. You never stole the cookie, and you know you never stole it because you’d been taking a nap when the act occurred.

But because you don’t want to admit to having been napping during the day, lest you be scolded for being lazy, you lie and claim you were outside walking the dog when the cookie was stolen.

Now imagine that your mom discovers proof that you were napping when the cookie was stolen and decides to ground you for that. Meanwhile, the cookie’s real thief remains uncaught.

That’s basically what happened to Stone, or at least in regard to the charges stemming from his lies. The fact is that neither Stone nor any other member of the president’s former campaign team has been indicted for a real crime such as colluding with Russian operatives to disrupt America’s elections. Like him, most of them have been indicted for merely allegedly making false statements.

In his tweet Saturday morning, the president wondered why, if making false statements counts as an indictable charge, so many left-wing liars remain unindicted and free, including disgraced former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who lied to Congress, and disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan, who lied so much The Guardian named him “the most talented liar in Washington.”

Next to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, that is. During the FBI’s botched investigation into her illicit use of a personal email address on an unsecured private server to transmit State Department intelligence, she likely lied more often than she brushed her teeth.

Case in point:


Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump has long maintained is also an unrepentant liar, let Clinton off scot-free despite the dozens (if not hundreds) of lies she told.

What the president was driving at in his tweet was that there appears to be a two-tiered justice system in America: one for members or allies of the raging anti-Trump left, and the other for the president and his current and former campaign/administration officials.

Is he right? According to the American people, the answer appears to be yes.

Exit polls from the midterm elections last November found that a 45 percent plurality of Americans disapproved of Mueller’s investigation. A poll conducted last spring likewise found that a 53 percent majority of Americans believed the investigation was politically motivated.

A similar sentiment can be seen on social media:
