Rachel interviewed John Brennan, for Director of the CIA under President Obama, on Friday’s show. Brennan lost his security clearance this week, when the current occupant of the White House revoked his clearance for being a big ol’ meanie.
Like Rachel, I have not been a great supporter of Brennan in the past (remember rendition?), however, I do support his current actions of speaking truth to power to this GOP/Russia-owned administration.
Anyhoo, if you have about 35 minutes, give this interview a listen. I love it when, around the 25 minute mark, Brennan hesitates a moment, and then says the unstable orange chucklehead is “drunk with power.” Don’t get me wrong, that statement is scary as shit, but seeing a man, who is normally so careful with his speech, produce those words on national teevee does my heart good.
The day after Robert Mueller’s team called a butt load of witnesses, Manafort’s defense rested, having called zero witnesses in his trial for fraud and money laundering.
In my humble opinion, Manafort is trying to present an image of confidence that the prosecution failed to prove its case — and failed. In reality, it appears that the defense was worried about Mueller’s team being able to cross-examine their super-duper honest witnesses.
Anyhoo, I feel safe making the blindingly obvious prediction that tRump, while he’s not using his “executive time” to scrub away the stink of flopsweat, will be frantically tweeting more misspelled batshit insane “thoughts” than usual. Maybe bring in Hannity for a soothing tongue bath…
