His actions in recent months are unacceptable. An Inspector General's report confirms what has already been reported in the media—the CIA spied on its Senate overseers and made false claims to the DOJ against Senate staffers investigating the agency's use of torture.
It's clear now that Mr. Brennan was either clueless about what was going on in his agency or he outright lied to the Senate about it. His belated, private apology and his referral of the matter to an internal CIA “accountability board” are not an adequate response.
Director Brennan lost Congress’ and the public’s trust when the CIA illegally read the communications of Senate staff—not to mention violating the system of checks and balances at the heart of our democracy.
Take action today and tell President Obama that Director Brennan is no longer a reliable leader.
It's time for CIA Director John Brennan to go. His recent actions and those of the agency he oversees are unacceptable. An Inspector General's finding that the CIA spied on the Senate Committee investigating its use of torture is a frightening abuse of power.
But not only that: Director Brennan lied to Congress about the illegal surveillance. It wouldn't be the first time Director Brennan has lied or misled the public about the CIA's actions.
Director Brennan and the CIA should be held accountable. It's time for President Obama to fire Director Brennan and send a message to the CIA that illegal surveillance on Americans will not be tolerated.
