New York Republican Representative Peter King was no fan of John Brennan way back in 2010. Back then, Brennan was Obama’s national security advisor. Representative King saw him as a dangerous loose cannon way back then. Mr. King says that Brennan displayed all his arrogance and dishonesty in dealing with Congress even then. Here it is as described by King.
As Written and Reported By Kerry Picket for the Daily Caller:
Former CIA Director John Brennan claimed this week President Trump revoked his security clearance as political retribution, a claim that got support from 60 former CIA officials. But according to one congressman at the time, when Brennan served as President Obama’s counter-terrorism advisor, the intelligence community thought differently of him.
New York Republican Rep. Peter King, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told this reporter in August 2010 that Brennan was derelict in providing accurate and timely intelligence to Congress, and as a result of Brennan being on the White House payroll, oversight was nearly impossible.
“Here’s the problem … and this is from people from the intelligence community too. John Brennan is running intelligence policy from the White House. He is getting in the weeds in different intelligence organizations that are out there,” King said.
“He’s doing this from the White House. Obviously, he is not subject to Congressional scrutiny, because he’s on the White House staff, and it’s a very dangerous situation, where you have a homeland security advisor who is beyond the reach of Congress actually making, running, and carrying on intelligence policy. It’s wrong. I’m not aware of it happening before.”
King admitted he did not get along with Brennan, but he gave examples of the issues Congress had with the Obama counter-terrorism…..
