Trump: John Brennan "A Very Bad Person"

|

President Trump responded to former CIA director John Brennan's accusation of treason after his joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday. Trump called Brennan "a very bad person." He also called out other "bad people" such as Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Comey, and Andrew McCabe of the FBI.

"Well, I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it, a lot of things happened under his watch. I think he is a very bad person," Trump said Tuesday in an interview with FNC's Tucker Carlson.

"This has been going on for a long time, but these are people that in my opinion are truly the bad people and they are being exposed for what they are and it's a shame that it has to happen, but it's really hurt our country," Trump also said.





TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: The reaction to your press conference in Washington was swift and intense, former CIA Director John Brennan described it as treasonous and a potentially impeachable offense. Why the push toward conflict with Russia in Washington on both sides?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it, a lot of things happened under his watch. I think he is a very bad person. I also think that when you watch Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, when you watch all of the things that have happened and Comey, take a look at that and McCabe, who has got some pretty big problems, I assume, you look at the deception and the lies, what's gone on in the last fairly long period of time before I won. I mean, long before I won, during the campaign, I guess, probably during the Republican [primary] - when I was fighting against 17 other Republicans.

So, this has been going on for a long time, but these are people that in my opinion are truly the bad people and they are being exposed for what they are and it's a shame that it has to happen, but it's really hurt our country.
