Newt Gingrich: Brennan an Obama 'Toady' Who Lied About Benghazi

Former CIA Director John Brennan is "totally out of touch with reality" with his claims that he is not acting politically with his accusations against President Donald Trump, ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday.

"How would you like to have a director of Central Intelligence so lacking in common sense that he thinks he can write a tweet accusing the president of the United States of the equivalent of treason, high crimes, and misdemeanors, and then explain that he is really not political," Gingrich told Fox News' "Fox and Friends."

"John Brennan is totally political. He was basically a toady to President [Barack] Obama."

Gingrich also said it is an "open and shut case" that Brennan lied to the American people about Benghazi, where Ambassador Chris Stevens and other embassy personnel were killed.

"It is an open and shut case with zero question that Brennan was engaged in lying to the American people about Benghazi," said Gingrich. "These people were all willing to lie to the country in return for whatever political games they were playing, and they all thought they would be protected because they all thought Hillary would win ... they are all terrified because the more we learn, the worse they look."

Gingrich also defended Trump for revoking Brennan's security clearance.

"Frankly, Brennan should never have been director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and it's a little disheartening to watch the old boy's club get together and write a collective letter when which they did this weekend in defending Brennan," said Gingrich.
