WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 6

‘High Crimes & Misdemeanors’: Former CIA Chief Brennan Calls Trump Presser ‘Nothing Short of Treasonous’

Former CIA Director John Brennan ripped both President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress in the wake of the presser with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,'” Brennan tweeted Monday, citing the language of the Constitution for the threshold for impeachment.

“It was nothing short of treasonous,” he added. “Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.”

After smashing Trump, Brennan went after Republicans who have been silent in the face of such behavior.

“Republican Patriots: Where are you???” he asked.
