President Donald Trump, in a trio of tweets Monday, showcased comments made by former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino blaming ex-CIA Director John Brennan for starting "this entire debacle" about the president, and claiming Brennan has "disgraced the country."
Bongino also said Monday, during an appearance on Fox News' "Fox & Friends," he believes former Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, ex-FBI Director James Comey, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also had 'detailed knowledge" of what was happening.
"There was a very small working group of people involved in this political hit job on Donald Trump," Bongino said. "The reason Brennan is panicking, and a lot of others have gone silent, they are not just worried about reputational harm. Brennan has disgraced himself. He knows history is not kind to him."
There were "criminal leaks" involved concerning the Trump campaign, he added, and "they are worried about staying out of jail . . . There were felonious criminal leaks of information. Someone was responsible."
The Trump tweets, and Bongino's comments, come after Brennan attacked Trump on Twitter on Sunday night:
