BACKGROUND INFO: At the height of the concern that President Trump might be tempted to stop the Russia-election-interference investigation by firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a tweet by John Brennan on Saturday, March 17, 2018, described in very definite terms the former CIA director's view of the current President.



BRENNAN'S TWEET

(to the tune of "Let It Be"; the Wikipedia article, as given above shows the details of the tweet. )


When we face a federal crisis 
Former CIA boss' words entreat:
Online words of wisdom, Brennan's tweet.
When FBI's scapegoated
And Executive stance won't retreat,
Posted words of wisdom, Brennan's tweet.

Chorus:
Brennan's tweet, Brennan's tweet,
Brennan's tweet, Brennan's tweet,
Broadcast Twitter wisdom, Brennan's tweet.

And "When we know the full extent
Of your corrupt venality",
That's the introduction: Brennan's tweet.
And with the light that probes
Invoke "disgrace" and "demagoguery".
That's the middle section - Brennan's tweet.

Repeat Chorus:

And he concludes Trump's "rightful place" is
"The dustbin of history"
(Soon we hope - tomorrow): Brennan's tweet.
To wake up from this nightmare,
Special Counsel's probe could set us free.
Echo words of wisdom: Brennan's tweet.

Brennan's tweet, Brennan's tweet,
Brennan's tweet, Brennan's tweet,
Pass torch to Robert Mueller: Brennan's tweet.
