Obama’s Intel Leadership Team Included at Least Two Admitted Former Communists – Not Including Obama

We knew that Brennan was a Communist. Now we know Comey was a Communist too! What does this say about Obama?
We’ve known for some time that Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan, the one who’s now knee deep in the scandal to remove President Trump from office, was once a Communist. Brennan, through his own words, let this be known in 2016 –
Last week, however, CNN reporter Tal Kopan found a striking admission from CIA Director John Brennan. When he first applied to join the CIA, and received his polygraph test, he was asked this standard question:

This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate.” Brennan was responding to a question about barriers to recruiting diverse candidates for the intelligence agencies, including whether past records of activism could hurt someone applying for a clearance later in life.
Brennan called his support of the Communist Party a mere “indiscretion,” and reminded his audience that the Constitution grants free speech. He then remembered that he said to himself he could either lie and the polygraph machine would “go wacko” or tell the truth and face the consequences, including possibly being rejected for employment.
