Trump slams outgoing CIA Director Brennan, after criticism over Russia threat

 

President-elect Donald Trump blasted the Director of the CIA, John Brennan is no different on social media Sunday after Brennan Trump said about 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 a “full recognition” of Russia’s aggression, or it is missing, 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.

Trump responded with a two-tweet message that is critical of the CIA-Brennan and inquired whether the Director had supplied a dossier of unverified allegations that Russia had gained spies, compromising personal and financial information on trump.

On the day after the dossier contents were published by BuzzFeed, Trump posted on Twitter that the intelligence services “should never have allowed this fake news to ‘leak'” before the question “do we live in Nazi Germany?”

Trump has always hoped for a better U.S. relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and he has become suspicious vis-a-vis 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 Trump compared the U.S. intelligence community in Nazi Germany, leaking, presumably, the content of the opposition-research dossier on him is “outrageous.”

“There is no interest in the undermining of the president-elect,” he said. “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,” said Brennan, who President Obama appointed to the directorship of the CIA in the year 2013.
