Clapper and Brennan couldn't have been so smart, nor patriotic. Their unethical actions as high ranking members of the intelligence community have brought disgrace to their respective agencies. No way would I lend any credence to their opinions of any D.N.I. !

Sharyl, i've been out of the country for two weeks. What is going on.? 60 % of the respondent think the Director of National Intelligence is corrupt? Was this a push poll? A corrupt poll? Can this be true? I'm not surprised that the work of John Brennnan has let to distrust?
