Ex-CIA Chief Brennan: Trump's Remarks 'Nothing Short of Treasonous'

Ex-CIA Chief Brennan: Trump's Remarks 'Nothing Short of Treasonous'

By    |   Monday, 16 July 2018 02:00 PM

Three former heads of the U.S. intelligence community blasted President Donald Trump's joint press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin, with one calling the president's remarks "nothing short of treasonous."

Former CIA director John Brennan, former CIA and National Security Agency (NSA) chief Michael Hayden, and former head of the Office of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper panned the president's performance alongside Putin Monday in Helsinki, Finland.

Trump called special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe a "disaster" while standing next to Putin, spurning the unified position of the U.S. intelligence community.

Brennan, a frequent and fierce critic of Trump's, was apoplectic.

Clapper called the president's behavior "truly unbelievable."

"On the world's stage, in front of the entire globe, the President of the United States essentially capitulated and seems intimidated by Vladimir Putin. So it was amazing and very, very disturbing," Clapper said on CNN.
