Mika Brzezinski has lashed out at President Donald Trump's criticism of the FBI and its role in the Russia investigation as a very troubling sign for American democracy.

"With so much at stake, it's one thing to look at this president as a bumbling idiot who tweets and says stupid things and is inappropriate, misogynistic, racist and embarrassing. That's one way to look at it," the co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," said Wednesday.

"But my question is, when is it okay to say that what we are witnessing before our eyes are the rudimentary beginnings of the destruction of a democracy? When should we be worried that this is happening? I say now."

Her co-host Joe Scarborough praised FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe whose political alliances are under fire by Trump, with the president suggesting the probe into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election is motivated by Democrats.

"This man dedicated his life to you and to your family, keeping you safe from terror attacks in New York City, in Washington D.C., across the country, serving with the Federal Bureau of Investigation," Scarborough said.

"And because Donald Trump has completely blown through every single barrier, every single constitutional protection, now some are attacking this American hero because it just fits  their political message of the day. It's despicable."
