In the most expressive opposition to president Donald Trump yet still, ex – CIA Director John Brennan stated that if the White House makes an attempt to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should decline to follow the president orders, as they would be – in his perspective – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch.
“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan informed CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.

On Friday at the Aspen Security Forum former CIA director John Brennan stated senior officials in the executive branch should reject the order if President Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller
Speaking on a panel to CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer with ex – DNI chief James Clapper, John Brennan effectively called for a coup in opposition to the president if he should give the order to fire the DOJ appointed investigator.
“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out,” Mr. Brennan stated. “I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future.
“If he’s fired by Mr. Trump, or is attempted to be fired by Mr. Trump, I hope, I really hope that our members of congress, our elected representatives, will stand up and say enough is enough, and stop making apologies and excuses for things that are happening that really flaunt, I think, our system of laws and government here,” Mr. Brennan explained.
The editorial staff of ZeroHedge, an influential global blog which covers politics, economics, and war from a libertarian perspective, also came to the conclusion that Mr. Brennan’s statement was “effectively calling for a coup” should President Trump give the order to fire Mr. Mueller.
Equally Mr. Brennan and Mr. Clapper informed Wolf Blitzer they have “total confidence” in the appointment of Mr. Mueller to head the Russian-election hacking probe, even going as far to call the pick “an inspired choice”.
“Absolutely,” Mr. Brennan explained to Mr. Blitzer when inquired if he had trust in Mr. Mueller. “They don’t come any better.”
“Absolutely, that was an inspired choice” Mr. Clapper informed Mr. Blitzer, in sync with his ex – colleague. “Nobody better than Bob Mueller [sic], who’s a straight shooter and will not be intimidated by anyone.”
Both Mr. Brennan and Mr. Clapper tendered their resignations to the Trump administration just before the January 20th inauguration.
On President Trump’s first day in office Mr. Brennan belittled the newly minted commander in chief’s visit to the CIA headquarters in Langley as a “self-aggrandizement” and stated he should be ashamed of himself.
“Former CIA Director Brennan is deeply saddened and angered at Donald Trump’s despicable display of self-aggrandizement in front of CIA’s Memorial Wall of Agency heroes,” ex – CIA deputy chief of staff Nick Shapiro stated. “Brennan says that Trump should be ashamed of himself.”
Mr. Clapper has been much less vocal than his ex – peer, but has belittled the Trump administration over their assertions toward the intelligence community, particularly the President’s earlier characterization in a tweet contrasting the nations spies to Nazi Germany.
“That was a terrible, insulting affront, not just to me or John, we get paid the big bucks, but I’m talking about the rank and file, men and women, patriots and intelligence community — that was completely inappropriate and over the top – I had to do something about it,” Mr. Clapper explained to Mr. Blitzer on Friday.
