Scott Adams, author of “Win Bigly: Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don’t Matter” said President Trump appears to be dealing with a dangerous political witch hunt because Mr. Brennan thought a public roasting of Hillary Clinton and her secret email server as secretary of state was influenced by Russian propaganda.
At a 2016 campaign event, then-candidate Trump jokingly called for Russia to find the thousands of emails that had been deleted from the private server Clinton used while she was Obama’s Secretary of State.
On Thursday, The New York Times published an op-ed by the former CIA boss saying the jest complicated the already challenging work of the American intelligence and law enforcement communities by encouraging a foreign nation to collect intelligence against a United States citizen.”
Adams, who is famous for his cartoon, Dilbert, was one of the first political commentators to Trump’s electoral success. He said the decision to strip Brennan of his security clearance was a completely rational decision.
