Ex-CIA Director: Trump Was ‘Nothing Short of Treasonous’ at Helsinki Summit

Former CIA Director John Brennan slammed President Donald Trump on Twitter after his Monday press conference with Vladimir Putin, claiming that his unwillingness to blame Russia for meddling in the 2016 U.S. election “rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” “It was nothing short of treasonous,” Brennan continued. “Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” As Brennan noted, Trump neglected to blame Russia in any significant way during the conference: When asked by a reporter if he held Russia accountable “at all” for the strained relationship between the two nations, Trump responded that “I hold both countries responsible. I think the U.S. has been foolish. We all have been foolish. We have both made some mistakes.”
