  • >> Stephen: HEY!

  • WELCOME BACK TO A "LATE SHOW," EVERYBODY.

  • MY NEXT GUEST HAS SPENT HIS CAREER IN NATIONAL SECURITY AND

  • SERVED AS THE DIRECTOR OF THE C.I.A. FROM 2013-2017.

  • HE HAS JUST WRITTEN A NEW MEMOIR: "UNDAUNTED: MY FIGHT

  • AGAINST AMERICA'S ENEMIES, AT HOME AND ABROAD."

  • PLEASE WELCOME TO "A LATE SHOW," DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN.

  • DIRECTOR, THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> THANKS TO THE INVITATION.

  • LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DISCUSSION.

  • >> Stephen: AS AM I.

  • I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT SOMETHING THAT WAS REVEALED

  • TODAY.

  • YOU SPENT YOUR CAREER TRYING TO HELP MAKE THIS COUNTRY AND ITS

  • CITIZENS SAFE.

  • TODAY 13 MEN WERE CHARGED WITH PLANNING TO KIDNAP MICHIGAN

  • GOVERNOR GRETCHEN WHITMER AND PUT HER ON TRIAL FOR TREASON AND

  • ATTACK THE STATE CAPITOL TO OVERTHROW THE MICHIGAN

  • GOVERNMENT.

  • HOW DO YOU ACCOUNT FOR THE EMERGENCE OF ANTI-GOVERNMENT

  • MILITIA?

  • WHEN YOU WERE THE C.I.A.

  • DIRECTOR, DID YOU HAVE ANY SENSE FROM THE INTELLIGENCE YOU SAW

  • THAT THIS WAS A GROWING PROBLEM IN THE UNITED STATES?

  • >> WELL, ABSOLUTELY.

  • EVEN THOUGH IT WASN'T THE AREA OF C.I.A. FOLKS, -- FOCUS, I KNO

  • THE F.B.I. WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE WHITE SUPREMACIST GROUPS,

  • THE ONE WHO TRY TO BLAME FOREIGN INFLUENCES AS WELL AS GOVERNMENT

  • OVERSIGHT FOR THEIR PROBLEMS.

  • THEY ARE HYPER NATIVISTS THAT ARE REACT TO WHAT THEY PERCEIVE

  • AS GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION IN THEIR LIVES ANDETH QUITE

  • DISTURBING AND I THINK THE F.B.I. HAS THEIR HANDS FULL IN

  • TERMS OF DEALING WITH THEM.

  • >> Stephen: THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WILL SOMETIMES

  • RE-TWEET THESE NATIVIST ORGANIZATIONS OR PRAISE THEM.

  • IS THAT ITSELF A THREAT TO OUR SECURITY IS THIS.

  • >> ABSOLUTELY.

  • WHAT A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES SAYS MATTERS AND IT

  • RESONATES FAR AND WIDE, AND DONALD TRUMP'S FAILURE TO

  • DENOUNCE THESE GROUPS IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS HAS JUST FUELED

  • THEIR RISE.

  • OF COURSE, YOU SEE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE IN

  • THIS COUNTRY AND WHAT HAPPENED IN TERMS OF THE RISE OF NAZIISM

  • IN GERMANY IN WORLD WAR II, THE STRENGTHENING OF THE ARYAN

  • NATION AND TRYING TO AGAIN RID SOCIETY OF THESE INFLUENCES.

  • SO THESE ARE GROUPS THAT HAVE NO SENSE OF SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

  • OR NO SENSE OF ALLEGIANCE TO ANYBODY OTHER THAN THEMSELVES,

  • AND THE ONE WHO ARE ALIGNED WITH THEIR VIEWS, INCLUDING DONALD

  • TRUMP.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY - FAIRLY BROAD QUESTION -- BUT

  • WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE THE THREATS TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY

  • ON THE NEAR TERM, MIDDLE TERM AND FAR TERM?

  • >> I THINK THE NEAR TERM IS NO QUESTION THAT THE NEXT 100 DAYS

  • IS VERY UNSETTLED PERIOD AND A FRAUGHT PERIOD FOR THE UNITED

  • STATES.

  • WHAT DONALD TRUMP MIGHT DO IN TRYING TO STEAL THE ELECTION AND

  • HOW HE EXERCISES THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY BEFORE AND AFTER

  • THE ELECTION, WHEN HE'S A LAME DUCK.

  • I'M QUITE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT HE MIGHT RESORT TO AND DO DURING

  • THAT PERIOD OF TIME.

  • >> Stephen: LIKE WHEN HE'S SAYING IN THE DEBATES, STAND

  • BACK AND STAND BY.

  • >> ABSOLUTELY.

  • AND HIS REFUSAL TO ACKNOWLEDGET THAT HE'S GOING TO ACCEPT THE

  • RESULTS OF THE ELECTION.

  • I THINK THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS TIME AND IT'S CLEAR THAT DONALD

  • TRUMP WILL RESORT TO ANY TACTIC.

  • I THINK HE HAS DEMONSTRATED TIME AND TIME AGAIN HE HAS NO RESPECT

  • FOR THE RULE OF LAW AND PRINCIPLES IN THIS COUNTRY AND

  • THE FACT THAT THE REPUBLICANS ARE BOWING TO HIS EVERY WHIM

  • MAKES ME VERY CONCERNED.

  • IN THE MEANTIME, JOE BIDEN WILL HAVE HIS HANDS FULL WHEN HE'S

  • TAKING OVER IN JANUARY IN TERMS OF ADDRESSING THE CHALLENGES WE

  • FACE, COVID, THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN, SOCIAL JUSTICE, THE

  • TENSIONS IN THIS COUNTRY, THE POLARIZATION TAKEN PLACE UNDER

  • DONALD TRUMP.

  • SO I THINK 2021 WILL BE A CHALLENGE FOR JOE BIDEN ON THE

  • DOMESTIC AS WELL AS THE INTERNATIONAL FRONT.

  • HE'S GOING TO HAVE TO REPAIR ALLIANCES AND PARTNERSHIPS THAT

  • HELPED TO STRENGTHEN OUR NATIONAL SECURITY OVER THE LAST

  • 75 YEARS.

  • HE'S ALSO GOING TO HAVE TO SEND AN UNMISTAKABLE SIGNAL TO

  • ADVERSARIES THAT TRUMP IS GONE SO VLADIMIR PUTIN AND KIM JONG

  • UN AND OTHERS REALLY HAVE TO TAKE NOTE THAT JOE BIDEN IS A

  • DIFFERENT PRESIDENT THAN DONALD TRUMP.

  • OVER THE LONGER TERM, CLIMATE CHANGE.

  • YOU KNOW, THE IMPACT ON OUR WEATHER AND HOW THAT'S GOING TO,

  • YOU KNOW, LEAD TO THE RISE OF THE OCEANS AND THE ENCROACHMENT

  • ON COASTAL COMMUNITIES AND MIGRATION FLOWS AND HOW URBAN

  • CENTERS WILL BE OVERWHELMED, THE CYBER REALM, DIGITAL DOMAIN,

  • GENETIC ENGINEERING.

  • THERE WERE SO MANY LONGER-TERM ISSUES THAT WHILE WE WERE SO

  • OBSESSED WITH THESE POLITICAL PROBLEMS AT HOME, WE'RE NOT

  • TAKING THE TIME AND WE'RE NOT DEDICATING THE EFFORT AND THE

  • RESOURCES TO ADDRESS WHAT I THINK IS GOING TO BE THE

  • CHALLENGES FOR THE NEXT GENERATIONS OF AMERICANS.

  • >> Stephen: BECAUSE WHILE WE'RE ALL FIGHTING EACH OTHER

  • HERE, WE'RE NOT BEING AWARE OF THE WAVE THAT'S COMING OVER THE

  • HORIZON OF THESE OTHER CHALLENGES.

  • >> YEAH, WE'RE IGNORING IT AND WE'RE NOT DOING WHAT'S NECESSARY

  • BECAUSE WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO REVERSE CLIMATE CHANGE

  • OVERNIGHT.

  • THIS IS A CONCERTED EFFORT OVER THE LONG TERM THAT THE UNITED

  • STATES HAS TO BE THE LEADER WE ONCE WERE AND I THINK WE SOON BE

  • AFTER JOE BIDEN BECOMES PRESENT.

  • >> Stephen: BACK WITH MORE OF THE AUTHOR OF "UNDAUNTED,"

  • C.I.A. DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN.

>> Stephen: HEY!
