Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and CIA Director John Brennan — ripped by President Donald Trump as “political hacks” — have a response at the ready, and will deliver it Sunday, according to CNN’s Jack Tapper.

Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday, Trump lashed out at the former intelligence leaders, as well as fired FBI Director James Comey, for their conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

"I mean, give me a break, they are political hacks," Trump said, according to pool reports, The Hill reported.

"So you look at it, I mean, you have Brennan, you have Clapper and you have Comey. … So you look at that and you have [Russia] President [Vladimir] Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with them.”

He also railed at the Russian interference in the election as a “Democratic-inspired thing” and a “pure hit job."

Multiple intelligence agencies determined Russia interfered in the presidential election,and congressional investigations are underway to determine the scope and purpose of Russia's actions.

Special counsel Robert Mueller also conducting an investigation for the Justice Department.
