Fact: Former CIA Director John Brennan Voted For A Communist Presidential Candidate

Former CIA Director John Brennan did vote for a Communist Party presidential candidate.

Brennan, who served as the Director of the CIA under former President Obama, is a huge critic of President Trump.

Most recently, Brennan called President Trump’s comments at the press briefing with Russian President Vladimir Putin “treasonous.”

Supporters of President Trump including Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Sebastian Gorka pointed out Brennan had voted for the Communist Party candidate for president.

The Daily Caller wrote a fact check on Paul’s claim about Brennan.

The fact check story discovered Brennan admitted he voted for the Communist Party candidate for president in 1976 and he described how he disclosed his vote during a polygraph test with the CIA.

Brennan had to take a polygraph test to gain admission to the CIA, and during the test, he was asked whether he had ever worked with or for a group dedicated to overthrowing the U.S. government. “This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,” he told the audience.

Brennan voted for Gus Hall, the presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA, in 1976.

Brennan defended his anti-Trump advocacy in an interview on MSNBC.

The Hill reports:

Former CIA Director John Brennan on Thursday explained his intense criticism of President Trump, saying that he is hoping to shake “some sense” into the president’s aides and Republican lawmakers.

“When I see the types of things that Mr. Trump is doing, yes, I will speak out,” Brennan said on MSNBC. “I’m hoping to be able to shake some — quite frankly — some sense into the people around Mr. Trump and those on the Hill.”

How ironic that Brennan wanted a communist to be president and he accuses President Trump of treason.
