Did You Notice Anything Ironic About That Tweet From John Brennan on Iran?
It’s a great day. The architect of Iran’s nuclear weapons program Mohsen Fahrizade is dead. He got shot up. The world is better off. Yet, the only people who appear to be upset are the Obama folks. Take a look at what former CIA Director John Brennan tweeted.

h, isn’t this a Logan Act violation? I mean, if we’re going by Michael Flynn rules, it is, and he should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. That’s the irony about this tweet. It’s exactly what Flynn pretty much did which landed him in front of the crosshairs of the Obama administration in its final days. The man President Trump selected as his national security adviser merely had run-of-the-mill conversations with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak after the 2016 election.
Glenn Greenwald who recently bolted from the publication he co-founded, The Intercept, over censorship concerns noted the peculiar ramifications of Brennan’s tweet.
“This, ironically, is exactly the message that Flynn gave to Russia during the 2016 transition — hey, guys, don’t get crazy with retaliation: wait until we’re in power shortly and things will be different. Maybe the FBI should investigate Brennan for Logan Act violations” he wrote.
In the periphery, that’s what’s disgusting about this whole circus with Flynn. These guys are going to get away with it. He was targeted by the Obama administration. The ex-president’s January 5 meeting with his top national security and law enforcement officials where they discussed how they would protect the FBI’s Russia investigations makes that clear.
