CIA Director Brennan Admits Voting for Communist Party in 1976

"We've all had indiscretions in our past," the CIA director said

CIA Director John Brennan admitted to supporting the Communist Party in the 1976 election last week during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual conference.

Speaking at a panel discussion on diversity in the intelligence community Thursday, Brennan revealed how his previous vote for Communist Gus Hall had resurfaced during his first polygraph test at the agency.

According to CNN, after being asked if he had “ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US,” Brennan worried that a truthful answer would end his goal of becoming a CIA analyst.

“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 said. “I froze, because I was getting so close to coming into CIA and said, ‘OK, here’s the choice, John. You can deny that, and the machine is probably going to go, you know, wacko, or I can acknowledge it and see what happens.'”

8:52 It is a big deal. Was then; is now.

1976 was Jimmy Carter v Gerald Ford and this knucklehead chose to vote for the Communist Party candidate. Russia was still Communist Russia and the Berlin Wall was intact. The Gulag Archipelago had been published 3 years earlier. But he thought a Communist as President was the best choice.

Took him a while but he found one to work for.
