If this is true, this isn’t just Trump Derangement Syndrome. This is a betrayal of America and a gift to the Russians.

John Brennan, the former young communist, and Obama’s CIA Director has been one of the biggest critics of Trump’s behavior during the infamous press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. (RELATED: Rand Paul Defends Trump, Slams ‘Completely Unhinged’ CIA Director.)

He’s been so critical, in fact, that some are speculating that he ran to the New York Times to provide evidence of just how wrongheaded Trump was to agree with Putin about election meddling during the conference. Here is the beginning of the NYT report:

Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election.

The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation.

Brennan was the head of the C.I.A. at the time. The report further lists who was present at the briefing where Trump learned of Russian interference: “John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director; James R. Clapper Jr., the director of national intelligence; and Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency and the commander of United States Cyber Command.”

The report also confirms that aforementioned source, which was so secretive, that Brennan actually kept mention of him or her from President Obama’s daily briefing during the waning days of presidency. Instead, he would relay knowledge through a separate channel, namely with white unmarked envelopes.

Some have speculated that Brennan may have leaked the information of a source close to Putin to the NYT:

If Brennan did leak this source to the NYT, he may have just signed his death warrant. This, not Trump’s bungled words about Russia, is what being a traitor looks like.

Whoever leaked the source, they’ll surely have blood on their hands. What do we think is going to happen with that information? Will Putin just shrug his shoulders and forget about it?

Of course not. He’ll seek out this U.S.-supported spy and dispose of him in either a discreet manner, or a loud one. Either way, it’ll be nasty.

And that’s the kind of consequences Brennan may have helped create by tattling to the New York Times in order to make Trump look bad.

It looks like Trump Derangement Syndrome has reached a new low.
