The former head of the CIA, John Brennan, suggested that executive branch officials should refuse to obey President Trump if he fires Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Brennan was speaking last week at the Aspen Institute’s Security Forum, alongside the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

‘I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out,’ Brennan said.

I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue,’ he continued. ‘That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future.’

Brennan brought up an executive branch revolt when Blitzer asked him how he’d like to see Congress handle the situation.

The ex-CIA chief suggested he’d want a response from them both – the executive branch and Capitol Hill.

‘If he’s fired by Mr. Trump or attempted to be fired by Mr. Trump, I hope, I really hope that our members of Congress, elected representatives are going to stand up and say enough is enough and stop making apologies and excuses for things that are happening that really flout, I think, our system of laws and government.’
