Many continue the alarm bells as to what Donald Trump represents. Former CIA Director John Brennan took to Twitter with a scathing critique of the President. But does his tweet expect America to triumph ultimately?
Donald Trump in a vindictive move "made" Attorney General Jeff Session fire the FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. So far McCabe is not leaving quietly.
Former CIA Director John Brennan fired off a tweet after the McCabe's firing that should give all pause. Brennan tweeted,
"When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America ... America will triumph over you,"

It is clear the President is attempting to start a series of events to shut down the Mueller investigation that will likely prove the president's business is a corrupt and law-breaking enterprise.
CNN reported the following.
Trump tweeted in the wee hours Saturday morning about the firing, saying the axing made it "a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI."
"Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!" he wrote.
The President's tweet was followed Saturday morning by his personal lawyer John Dowd's comments that special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling should be brought to a close Following Dowd's remarks, Sen. Patrick Leahy again demanded Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley hold a hearing on what he called the politicization of the Justice Department.
"In the last few hours the President's personal attorney has called for the Justice Department, without even an arguably legitimate basis, to prematurely shut down the special counsel's Russia investigation," the Vermont Democrat said in a statement. "
And the attorney general, in a clear violation of his promised recusal under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee, fired a career civil servant days before he could retire, following months of the President's relentless and outrageous prodding."
The chess game is about to begin and the president is likely to lose.
