Obamagate’s Origin in John Brennan

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The press showered Brennan in reverential coverage last week, casting him as a patriot of the highest order. What a joke.

Was the CIA's John Brennan using Reid to put additional pressure on James Comey to accelerate his investigation into Trumpworld?
