Last Week, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul called for President Trump to pardon Edward Snowden, comparing his record favorably to former Obama-era Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Paul wrote “James Clapper brazenly lied to Congress denying that the Deep State was spying on all Americans. @Snowden simply revealed Clapper’s lies and exposed unconstitutional spying.”
“He deserves a pardon from @realDonaldTrump!” Paul added
This caused former Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan to fume at Paul’s tweet.
Jim Clapper has had a lifetime of dedicated & selfless service to America.
Edward Snowden betrayed his country, providing exceptionally sensitive intelligence to China & Russia.
You consistently demonstrate utter ignorance of U.S. national security.
You disgrace the Senate.
Mike Cernovich fired back at Brennan asking “This you?”
This you? https://t.co/QqMoLVMNfb

Rita Panahi added “James Clapper also claimed the NY Post’s legitimate & verifiable stories on the Biden family were “textbook Soviet Russian tradecraft at work…””
