  • ♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'RE BACK WITH FORMER C.I.A.

  • DIRECTOR AND AUTHOR OF THE NEW BOOK, "UNDAUNTED," JOHN BRENNAN.

  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE THE STABILITY OF THE UNITED STATES

  • GOVERNMENT GIVEN OUR PRESIDENT IS SICK NOW AND HAS SO MUCH

  • DISTRUST OF GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS THAT HAVE SORT OF

  • MAINTAINED THE AMERICANA OF THE LAST FEW DECADES.

  • THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN ACCUSED, QUITE CREDIBLY, OF

  • DESTABILIZING GOVERNMENTS AROUND THE WORLD OVER THE LAST 50

  • YEARS.

  • AS SOMEONE WHO WANTS RAN THE C.I.A., DO YOU SEE PATTERNS OF

  • FOREIGN BEHAVIOR IN THE UNITED STATES THAT IS HELPING TO

  • DESTABILIZE OUR GOVERNMENT THE WAY THE UNITED STATES HAS

  • DESTABILIZED GOVERNMENTS AROUND THE WORLD?

  • DO YOU SEE THE RUSSIANS PLAYING GAMES AGAINST US THAT WE PLAYED

  • IN OTHER REGIMES AROUND THE WORLD?

  • >> WELL, I THINK THE ADVENT OF THE TECHNICAL AND DIGITAL ERA

  • HAS GIVEN THE RUSSIANS AS WELL AS THE CHINESE AND OTHERS A

  • GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO TRY TO CARRY OUT THESE INFLUENCE

  • OPERATIONS AND REALLY SHAPE THE ATTITUDES AND VIEWS OF THE

  • AMERICAN PUBLIC.

  • WE SAW THAT IN THE 2016 ELECTION AND THEY ARE VERY SOPHISTICATED

  • CYBER ACTORS.

  • I BELIEVE OUR ADVERSARIES LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES HERE IN THE

  • UNITED STATES INCLUDING THE FREEDOMS AND THE LIBERTIES WE

  • ENJOY TO OPERATE HERE.

  • THAT'S WHY THE F.B.I. AND THE REST OF THE INTELLIGENCE

  • COMMUNITY REALLY, YOU KNOW, HAVE TO BE ON THE TOP OF THEIR GAME

  • TO UNEARTH, UNCOVER AND STOP THESE ACTIVITIES FROM TAKING

  • PLACE.

  • AS YOU POINT OUT NOW, IN THE MIDST TO HAVE THE PANDEMIC, AND

  • WE HAVE A PERSON IN THE WHITE HOUSE, WHO EVEN ON THE BEST OF

  • DAYS, IS RECKLESS, IMPULSIVE AND UNSTABLE, LAYER ON TOP OF THAT

  • HIS COVID DIAGNOSIS AS WELL AS THE MEDICATIONS AND THE STEROIDS

  • HE'S UNDER, THAT'S WHY I'M REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT HE

  • MIGHT DO DURING THIS PERIOD OF TIME WHEN, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A

  • COMBINATION OF FACTORS THAT LOOKS LIKE A VERY DANGEROUS

  • COCKTAIL FOR THE WHITE HOUSE.

  • >> Stephen: THE BOOK IS "UNDAUNTED," AND IT'S REALLY A

  • MEMOIR, AS YOU SAY "MY FIGHT AGAINST AMERICA'S ENEMIES AT

  • HOME AND ABROAD."

  • IT IS WELL KNOWN THE RUSSIANS ARE TRYING TO INFLUENCE OUR

  • ELECTIONS NOW.

  • WE DO A BETTER KNOW A BALLOT.com WHERE PEOPLE CAN GO

  • AND LEARN EVERYTHING THEY NEED TO.

  • OUR VOTING IS SO DECENTRALIZED AND SO FRAGMENTED, MY CHANGE

  • COUNTY BY COUNTY AROUND THE UNITED STATES.

  • IS THE FACT WE HAVE SUCH A FRACTURED AND DECENTRALIZED

  • VOTING SYSTEM A BENEFIT WHEN A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO

  • HACK INTO OUR ELECTIONS?

  • >> A BLESSING AND A CURSE, GIVEN THAT STATES CONTROL VOTING

  • SYSTEMS.

  • UNFORTUNATELY I THINK WE'VE SEEN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS IN VARIOUS

  • STATES TRY SUPPRESS VOTING, BUT AS FAR AS THE TECHNICAL

  • ARCHITECTURE IN THE UNITED STATES, THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE

  • THAT DISTRIBUTION AMONG THE VARIOUS STATES THAT ARE NOT

  • INTERCONNECTED, IT MAKES IT MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR FOREIGN ADD

  • ADVERSARIES TO HAVE STRATEGIC IMPACT TO CHANGE VOTING TALLIES.

  • RUSSIANS HAVE NAVIGATED THE SYSTEMS, WE KNEW IN 2016 THEY

  • MAY HAVE TAKEN TOWN SOME VOTER REGISTRATION ROLES.

  • BUT I'M WORRIED INSTITUTIONS THAT HAVE A ABILITY TO SHAPE

  • VOTES IN KEY STATES.

  • >> Stephen: HIS BOOK, "UNDAUNTED," ON SALE NOW,

  • DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

  • THANK YOU, SIR.

  • >> THANK YOU.
