John Brennan: Trump Might Launch ‘Military Action Against His Perceived Adversaries’

‘People have been speculating he is going to order a quick withdrawal out of Afghanistan and Iraq of U.S. troops’

EXCERPT:

BRENNAN: “You know, people have been speculating that he is going to order a quick withdrawal out of Afghanistan and Iraq of U.S. troops. Well, the retro grade of U.S. forces which is pulling them out needs to be done very carefully, safely, and securely. And if he orders a very rapid and hazard withdrawal, this could put our troops at great risk. Same thing is true is might he decide to launch some type of military action against his perceived adversaries. So he still has powers of the presidency in his hands the next 70 days and I am hoping people around him are counseling restraint so he does not engage in rash and reckless behavior which he has unfortunately been known for.”
