Ex-CIA Chief: Trump 'Tweets Not Tweets of an Innocent Individual'

Ex-CIA Chief:  Trump 'Tweets Not Tweets of an Innocent Individual'

John Brennan, a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, took aim at President Donald Trump's claim that he could pardon himself, as well as Trump's claim that special counsel Robert Mueller's probe is unconstitutional.

"His tweets are not the tweets of an innocent individual. So I think it really demonstrates just how desperate he is getting, grasping at straws, and Rudy Giuliani, as well," Brennan said on "MSNBC Live with Hallie Jackson," The Hill reported.

Trump and Giuliani, his lawyer, are not "encumbered by facts," Brennan said in the interview, The Hill reported.

"Neither Rudy nor his boss feel encumbered by facts, truth or common sense and that's why they're throwing these things out now to try to get whatever traction among their base as possible," Brennan said.

"I have the absolute right to pardon myself," Trump tweeted June 4.

Trump's tweets show that the president is concerned about what Mueller and his team could be finding, Brennan said.

"So (Deputy Attorney General Rod) Rosenstein, Bob Mueller, and others are now looking into this and for the president at this point to say it's unconstitutional, I think it just shows how worried is he, how fearful he is about what the special counsel is uncovering," Brennan said in the interview.

Trump's behavior has compelled Brennan to speak out, Brennan wrote Friday in The Washington Post.
