FOX NEWS – Former CIA Director John Brennan is blaming bad information for his near-constant attacks on President Trump after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion between Trump and Russia ended up clearing the president.
He admitted in a statement a day after Attorney General William Barr released a summary of Mueller’s findings, showing there was no evidence Trump or anyone close to him colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election,
“I don’t know if I received bad information, but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was,” Brennan told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government over our election.” Brennan added.
President Trump on Tuesday evening slammed Brennan for backpedaling on the Mueller probe and admitting perhaps he was given ‘bad information.’
This tweet is a great example of your paranoia, constant misrepresentation of the facts, and increased anxiety and panic (rightly so) about the Mueller investigation. When will those in Congress and the 30 percent of Americans who still support you realize you are a charlatan?

Last March, the former CIA Director called the President a “charlatan” after Trump criticized the Obama administration for opening an investigation into his campaign without any evidence of wrongdoing.
John Brennan on the Mueller probe, “I don’t know if I received bad information, but I THINK I SUSPECTED THAT THERE WAS MORE THAN THERE ACTUALLY WAS.” Wow, he admits he was wrong! Congress should go back to work on drug prices etc.
