John Brennan: I Welcome John Durham's Probe, "I Have Nothing To Hide"


Former CIA Director John Brennan said on Friday he looks forward to the day when the truth comes out and people like President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr are shown to have "deceived the American people."

Brennan on Trump using the power of the government for his own interests: "That is something that I saw overseas in my national security career, and I never thought I would see that happening here in the United States."

"John Durham, a well-respected individual from the Department of Justice…is looking at what happened during those last months of the Obama administration and the first year or two of the Trump administration," Brennan told MSNBC's Chris Hayes. "I'd like to think that John Durham and the other DOJ and FBI investigators will continue to honor their oath of office and to carry out their responsibilities without any consideration of political interests of Donald Trump."

"I feel very good that my tenure at CIA and my time at the White House during the Obama administration was not, that I was not engaged in any type of wrongdoing or activities that cause me to worry about what this investigation may uncover," Brennan said Friday night. "So, I welcome the opportunity to talk with the investigators. I have nothing to hide. I have not yet been interviewed by any of those individuals involved in this matter but I'm willing to do so."

"I do believe that, for too long, the American public's been misled by Donald Trump, by William Barr and others," he claimed. "And so I look forward to the day when the truth is going to come out and the individuals who have mischaracterized what has happened in the past will be shown to have deceived the American people."
