John Brennan Stands By Calling Trump “Treasonous”

Former CIA director John Brennan appeared on Meet The Press this morning and Chuck Todd asked if he stands by his claim that Trump has committed treason.

“Well I called his behavior treasonous, which is to betray one’s trust, and to aid and abet the enemy, and I stand very much by that claim,” Brennan answered.

“You are the former CIA director accusing the sitting president of the United States,” Todd pointed out. “It’s not a private citizen. A lot of people hear the former CIA director is accusing the sitting president of the united States of treason, that’s a monumental accusation.”

“Well, I think these are abnormal times and I think a lot of people have spoken out against what Mr. Trump has done” said Brennan. “I think I need to speak out. And so I’ve been speaking out rather forcefully because I believe it’s important to do so. I don’t believe I’m being political at all. I’m not a republican, I’m not a democrat.”
