Outgoing CIA Director John Brennan had some sharp criticism and warnings Sunday for Donald Trump said the President-elect does not have a “full understanding” for Russia’s power and threat in the world.
“I don’t think he said a full understanding of Russian capabilities, and the actions you take on the world,” Brennan “Fox News Sunday.”
He also suggested that Trump is not “the full recognition of” Russia’s aggression, or about why President Obama imposed sanctions against the Kremlin for meddling in the 2016 presidential elections.
“Mr. Trump has to understand that to acquit Russia is a road, he must be very, very careful to the bottom,” Brennan said.
Brennan was appointed by President Obama to run in 2013, the country’s premier spy Agency.
Trump has repeatedly suggested that better U.S. relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. And he was particularly suspected of the entire US intelligence community, since it is closed for Russia, and Putin is trying to influence the elections, in an apparent attempt to help Trump to defeat Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Brennan said on Sunday, “there is no interest in the to choose to undermine the President.”
“Our task is to understand the dangers of the world have (Trump and his Republican administration) the intel we have so you can make the best decision.”
However, he said that Trump “must be disciplined”, and that he is you in front of numerous challenges” in his presidency, that Friday — with terrorism, cybersecurity, North Korea and the Middle East instability begins among those at the top.
“So many questions, on the first day,” Brennan said.
