Quote of the Year: Brennan Calls Out President for “Moral Turpitude”


“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.”

Twitter post by John O. Brennan on March 17, 2018 responding to Mr. Trump’s tweet about “a great day for democracy” when Andrew McCabe was fired for supposedly lacking “candor” following a recommendation by the Justice Department’s Inspector General… but this was all based on an invalid premise: that McCabe wasn’t authorized to release statements to reporters.  The firing was rushed to get McCabe out before his birthday so he couldn’t get his full retirement benefits or, more importantly, his health insurance.  This appears to be a petty act of vindictiveness by Mr. Trump, who directed Mr. Sessions to do the dirty deed even though the IG’s investigation wasn’t finished.  He’s making a mistake by provoking an enemy who is a witness to his obstruction of justice.

Meanwhile, McCabe tweeted about his children:

“Things that have caused tears from our children this evening.

Being served Milk in a Green Cup

Coloring was taking too long

The Mail hasn’t come yet

The News was on

The TV was turned off

A toy wasn’t allowed to be brought downstairs

Life in General

I’d say he’s taking it pretty well.
