Brennan: ‘No, I Don’t Believe’ Obama ‘Choked’ on Russia

‘President Obama confronted president Putin in September

RUSH EXCERPT:

BRENNAN: "No, I don’t believe the Obama Administration choked. I think we can look at the actions that were taken prior to the election and after the election. I confronted my main Russian counterpart on August 4th and told him, if you go down this road, it’s going to have serious consequences not only for the bilateral relationship but for our ability to work with Russia on any issue because it is an assault on our democracy. And President Obama confronted president Putin in September. assault on our democracy. And President Obama confronted president Putin in September. Jim clapper and Jeh Johnson announced publicly about Russian efforts. After we did that, I wonder whether or not the Russians then announced publicly about Russian efforts. After we did that, I wonder whether or not the Russians then took a step back and said, wait a minute now. We’re not going to be as aggressive as we may have been otherwise."
