Posted on 05/27/2019 3:14:42 AM PDT by a little elbow grease
President Donald Trump on Thursday granted Attorney General William Barr the authority to declassify information relevant to the investigation into how spying on the Trump campaign started in 2016. Former CIA Director John Brennan appeared on MSNBC's "All in with Chris Hayes" to discuss the decision.
According to Brennan, Barr investigating the origins of the Russia probe is "outrageous."
"How big a deal do you read the portion of the executive order last night that appears to give [Attorney General William] Barr the unilateral authority to declassify?" Hayes asked.
"Well, I see it as a very, very serious and outrageous move on the part of Mr. Trump, once again, trampling on the statutory authorities of the Director of National Intelligence and the heads of the independent intelligence agencies. And it's unclear to me what Mr. Barr is actually going to do. Is he investigating a crime? Well, what's the predication of that crime? Or is he just going to be looking for information?" Brennan asked.
"I think it's rightly, as you pointed out, right at the top, that Mr. Trump can just give to just some of his defenders on the right and cherrypick information that could be taken out of context. But, I think more fundamentally, is the concern is that very, very precious source and methods of the United States intelligence community, as well as our partners and allies abroad, those who share this sensitive information with us," Brennan explained. "Is Mr. Barr, who doesn't have an understanding of the equities involved, is he just going to release information he deems appropriate for Mr. Trump's defense? So this is very serious and I know my former colleagues in the intelligence agencies are looking upon this with great concern and worry."

Brennan Explains The Bogus Reason He Believes It's 'Outrageous' For Barr To Investigate Russia Probe
I just searched again. This article was posted before.
Too much Brennan ..........
What is "outrageous" is that Brennan, as the President's Counter-Terrorism "czar", converted to Islam while he was the CIA's Station Chief in Saudi Arabia.
Well, since he asked . . . yes, AG Barr is investigating multiple crimes.
This makes the Barr easily distinguishable from the Mueller investigation.
So now the talking heads will stop chanting cover up and start chanting uncover up?
>>> And it’s unclear to me what Mr. Barr is actually going to do. Is he investigating a crime? <<<
Yes. Multiple federal crimes by multiple Hussein hacks.
Same for Brennan's entire cabal, right up the ladder to the highest point at which justice can be meted out.
If I had to guess, justice will be meted out to some folks away from the public glare. But, if POTUS gets his way (and he usually does), it will be meted out nonetheless--for the sake of the country and all that is right and holy.
“...Mr. Trump, once again, trampling on the statutory authorities of the Director of National Intelligence and the heads of the independent intelligence agencies.”
The President of the United States trampling????
Most people would characterize what Trump did as invoking HIS statutory authority.
Are these heads of intelligence agencies a law unto themselves? Untouchables?
"Solace for me would be a Roger Stone style RAID in the middle of the night since I dont trust the FBI, perhaps it could be done be US Marshals, LOTS of AKs fully loaded, THEN having him handcuffed with ALL of his neighbors watching, then having him locked up!!!!
CORRUPT, MUZZIE, POS!!!"
Beautiful .......... (and make sure CNN has been notified in advance so they can be there hiding in the bushes).
This makes the Barr easily distinguishable from the Mueller investigation."
LOL...... so true.
This time there are crimes ...... the most rancid crimes.
Brennan has an appropriate first name cause he’s full of doodoo.
Hilarious... Absolutely frikkin’ hilarious. It shows the type of stupid people Obama appointed.
You’re going down, John. The more you open your yap the more I’m absolutely convinced of it.

Because these evil f*cks thought they ran the world and that they’d never get caught. Then knew that if she won, they’d be rewarded and would take down any that opposed her and their agenda. Now that they’ve been caught, they’re shitting their collective pants and waiting for when the US Marshal’s show up at their houses.
And it’s unclear to me what Mr. Barr is actually going to do. Is he investigating a crime? Well, what’s the predication of that crime? Or is he just going to be looking for information?” Brennan asked.
Nothing more than cornered rats lashing out.
Ask “WWPRD” i.e. What would Paul Redmond do?
Pull Brennan’s passport and revoke his access/clearance, not for cause (yet) as Brennan might not have a “Need To Know” any longer.
This bozo is scared stiff about Barr's superior knowledge of the law, and the perils for those who foolishly break it.
These Obama-era jerks are used to a sap-happy president more than willing to strangle the law to get what he wanted.
He wanted Trump and all he stood for, incuding his supporters, out of his way.
Barr is about to discover what exactly these scummy Obama minions did in that effort.
BS. The president alone can declassify anything he decides to. Barr is his staff member designated to help him do this. And I think some sources and methods need some disinfecting sunshine because they were used in the coup attempt. The people have a right to prevent a reoccurrence
OH, THOSE HEADY DAYS OF “ANYTHING GOES”..... WHEN HILLARY WAS A “SURE-THING”
Brennan, a fiercely loyal Obama appointee, talked up the dossier to Democratic leaders, as well as the press, during the 2016 campaign and fed allegations about Trump-Russia contacts directly to the FBI, while pressuring the bureau to conduct an investigation of several Trump campaign figures.
