Brennan Claims FBI Agents in FISA Scandal Were “Doing Their Best to Try to Prevent Russian Interference”

Appearing on MSNBC, John Brennan who once wrongly insisted Mueller’s investigation would lead to proof of Russian collusion, defended the FBI agents involved in the FISA scandal and attempted to minimize their wrongdoing by calling them “overly aggressive.”

The IG report found “at least 17 significant errors and omissions” in the Carter Page FISA application that enabled the investigation into Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

John Brennan:

Clearly, there were mistakes made based on the inspector general’s report. And I know a lot of people attribute it to either incompetence or politicization. I might attribute it to these FBI agents who were doing their level best to try to prevent Russian interference in the election. They were probably overly aggressive.
