Ex-DCI Brennan: Lawmakers Who Protect Trump Will Face ‘Reckoning’

John Brennan was the former Director of Central Intelligence under President Obama.

Former CIA Director John Brennan issued a warning Tuesday morning: Lawmakers who protect the president will face a "reckoning".

"Leadership of House Intel Committee has traded last vestige of integrity for politics," Brennan tweeted.

"With other investigative shoes yet to drop, legislators who try to protect @realDonaldTrump will face November reckoning. Hopefully, bipartisan effort in Senate Intel Committee will endure..."

Brennan's remarks come on the heels of Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) announcing that the House Intelligence Committee is ending its investigation into Russian election meddling -- an investigation that has been marred by partisanship.

The committee will not interview any more witnesses and Republicans are in the process of preparing their final report, Conaway told reporters. A draft of that roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review on Tuesday.
