Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that the nation's intelligence agencies should "fake it" in any briefings to Donald Trump to avoid divulging significant information because "this man is dangerous."

"How would the CIA and the other intelligence agencies brief this guy?" the Nevada Democrat asked in an interview with The Huffington Post. "How could they do that?

"I would suggest to the intelligence agencies, if you’re forced to brief this guy, don’t tell him anything. Just fake it, because this man is dangerous.

"Fake it, pretend you’re doing a briefing, but you can’t give the guy any information," Reid said.

The top Democrat's comments came after the Republican presidential nominee urged Russia to help locate Democrat Hillary Clinton's missing emails.

Trump's call was also slammed by former CIA Director Leon Panetta, who called it "beyond the pale."

"This guy, he’s part of a foreign power," Reid told the Huffington Post. "We knew he liked [President Vladimir] Putin before this, but this is quite ridiculous."
