He’s a retired Army Ranger and a Benghazi Hero. Kris Paronto has proven he doesn’t put up with guff from anyone, and former CIA Director John Brennan just learned the hard way that that also applies to social media.
Brennan has been busy bashing President Donald Trump, as per usual, and claimed that being stripped of his no-longer-necessary security clearance is somehow Trump attempting “to suppress freedom of speech (and) punish critics.”
Please note that while Brennan is making this claim, he is still freely speaking and criticizing Trump. On social media and television.
In response, Paronto fired off a tweet at Brennan that shone a very bright spotlight onto Brennan’s tweet-mentioned “principles.” In his sights was the horror show of what happened in the aftermath of Benghazi:
My principles are greater than clearances too John, especially when you and the @CIA kool-aid drinkers punished us for not going along with the Benghazi cover-up story in order to protect you, @HillaryClinton ‘s & @BarackObama ‘s failures. You put your politics before us. https://t.co/qWFWujKthL

Much of what has been claimed about Brennan in the tweets can be verified through news reports, government hearing records and other authoritative sources. While Paronto has strong reason to not be a fan of Brennan, his criticism of the man might not be only fueled by his personal experience.
