Lying liars who lie

Anytime you see James Clapper or John Brennan bloviating, either on TV or on Twitter, remember that these are two men who violated the law, and then lied under oath about violating the law, and got off with no punishment because they helped Democrats in office.

A James Clapper can lie to Congress under oath about intelligence surveillance of U.S. citizens; a John Brennan can lie about CIA monitoring of U.S. Senate computers, or mislead Congress about the absence of any collateral damage in the use of drones. Yet we are supposed to give both further credence based on their emeriti titles or to believe their current Captain Renault-like outrage over President Trump’s lack of presidential decorum? But what in their past has earned them the moral high ground? Claiming that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was largely “secular,” or redefining jihad as “a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam”?

These people are a huge reason why Trump won.  Who in the hell trusts these people other than greedy, corrupt, power-hungry tyrant-wanna-be assholes?
