(CNSNews.com) – Sen. John Kennedy (R.-La.) said on Thursday that former CIA Director John Brennan "is lost in a sea of dumb."
Kennedy was commenting on Brennan's claim that President Donald Trump’s Monday press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin was “nothing short of treasonous."
On July 16, Brennan had tweeted: "Donald Trump's press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes & misdemeanors.' It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???"
At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, CNSNews.com asked Senator Kennedy: “Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan said that President Trump’s press conference in Helsinki ‘rises to and exceeds the threshold of high crimes and misdemeanors’ and ‘was nothing short of treasonous.’ Do you agree with Brennan that Trump’s actions were treasonous?”
Kennedy said: “Brennan is lost in a sea of dumb and has been.”
Brennan was CIA director from March 8, 2013 to January 20, 2017. Prior to that he was the Homeland Security Advisor, 2009-2013. Brennan is 62, married, and has no children.
In 1976, when Democrat Jimmy Carter was running against Republican Gerald Ford, Brennan voted for the Communist Party (CPUSA) presidential candidate Gus Hall.
The CPUSA was always loyal to the Communist Soviet Union and supported the genocidal dictator Joseph Stalin, even when he was allied with Nazi Germany (1939-41).
When Brennan voted for the CPUSA, the Soviet Union still occupied Eastern Europe and had split Berlin, Germany in two with the Berlin Wall.
