John Brennan served as CIA Director under Barack Obama.
Critics believe Brennan is one of the point men in the plot against Donald Trump.
And Brennan sent out one tweet that turned Washington, D.C. upside down.
Brennan responded to a tweet by Donald Trump where the President exercised his Constitutional authority to instruct an agency that reports to him –the Department of Justice – to comply with Congress’ lawful oversight requests regarding FBI misconduct during the 2016 election.
Senator McConnell & Speaker Ryan: If Mr. Trump continues along this disastrous path, you will bear major responsibility for the harm done to our democracy. You do a great disservice to our Nation & the Republican Party if you continue to enable Mr. Trump’s self-serving actions. https://t.co/uAhgL6wfIC

Brennan – as the nation’s former chief spy – issued a chilling threat to Republican leadership.
Is Brennan speaking as a private citizen or as America’s former keeper of secrets?
Was he threatening to unleash damaging leaks about House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should they cave to media and Deep State pressure?
Brennan’s tweet was another twist on a day filled with them.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray met with the President at the White House and they agreed to a proposal to have the DOJ Inspector General investigate the FBI spying on the Trump campaign.
Wray and Rosenstein also yielded to Trump’s orders to allow Congressional leaders to review relevant documents.
In that light, Brennan’s tweet looks like the ravings of a desperate man who realizes his illicit schemes are about to be dragged into the sunlight.
