Brennan: Trump-Putin Presser Nothing Short Of "Treasonous," "There Will Be Consequences For Him"


Former CIA director John Brennan said President Trump's behavior at his joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday was "nothing short of treasonous." Brennan said Trump is "giving aid and comfort to the enemy" and warned that there will be "consequences" for him.

"When I use the term, this is 'nothing short of treasonous,' I equate it to the betrayal of one's nation, aiding, abetting, giving comfort to an enemy," Brennan said in an interview with NBC's Today on Tuesday.

Brennan further explained the treason accusation on today's MSNBC's Morning Joe.

"And that's why I use the term that this was 'nothing short of treasonous.' Because it is betrayal of the nation. He's giving aid and comfort to the enemy. It needs to stop. And Mr. Trump needs to understand there will be consequences for him too," Brennan said.

"I hope those that voted for Mr. Trump in good conscience will see he's leading us down a very dangerous path," Brennan added.

Brennan tweeted Monday: "Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???"
