At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret.
John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US? "I froze," Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual conference. "This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,"

And even more importantly, "What other mischief, other than lying to US Congress under oath, did this miscreant John Brennan, partake of while CIA director"?

Well, to be honest, many democrat candidates and lawmakers are members of the communist party and no bout Brennan voted for one of them
He is a practicing Muslim. Why was he ever approved?
...I voted for the Communist Party candidate...
No matter how young and stupid I ever used to be- I never voted for a communist
Wouldnt you love to ask the questions if you had Barry hooked up?
1976, the heart of the Cold War
Those were dangerous times. Wow, Obama sure knew how to pick em.
Apparently he converted while in office as DCIA.
Is this the same guy who says everyone who doesn’t believe the Trump/Russia collusion story is a commie?
That’s why Obama picked him.
Valerie Jarrett’s family also had communist connections. Just sayin...
Brennan needs to be shot, hanged, drawn and quartered, then buried alive. In that order.
Where the hell was the media when it was reported that Brennan voted for Communist Party USA candidate Gus Hall?
I remember when I was a student applying for a summer federal job I had to affirm that I never was a member of a group seeking to overthrow the Government of the US. And they confirm Brennan head of the CIA?
Should we be looking back at his actions to see if he was undermining the US during his tenure?
Let me see if I have his correct...guy who was the director of CIA actually voted for a full blown commie in 1976 for president. Let’s see his choices: Carter, Ford, McCarthy were the principal candidates and then down the ticket somewhere the commie Hall. Wow. And this clown found his way to the top of the CIA????
One of the principal areas to cover during a security background investigation: LOYALTY as in do you have any question about this person’s loyalty to the US and the Constitution. ANY answer less then NO, required careful examination. Yet this clown became director under the enigma. No wonder.
John Brennan, Obama’s choice for CIA, was a communist? Why am I not surprised?
So, while this communist or former communist sympathizer was CIA Director, whose side was he on? It should not be too hard to find out now, after the fact.
Agree. Double standard. Republicans tarred and feathered for something like this, Dem no big deal. Couple that with his being a Muslim and alarms should have been going off.
Think about this - His CIA interview occurred in 1980 and he had voted for the Communist candidate way back in 1976. Obviously the CIA has been compromised for a very long time

Hopefully if I had him hooked up it would be to the entire output of Niagra Falls Hydro Electric Power plant.
