Brennan: ‘I Stand Very Much’ By the Claim That Trump Committed Treason

‘The type of things he is doing, I need to speak out’
By Grabien Staff

TODD: "You have been more outspoken than really any former official. And in fact, it may be why many Republican legislators feel comfortable taking the president's side, they believe your comments have been over the top. Do you regret essentially accusing the president of treason? Do you regret some of the things you have said?"
BRENNAN: "I called his behavior treasonous which is to betray one's trust and aid and albeit the enemy and I stand very much by that claim."
TODD: "You are the former CIA director accusing the sitting president of the United States. It’s not a private citizen. A lot of people here, the former CIA director accusing the sitting president of the United States of treason, that’s a monumental accusation.
BRENNAN: "Well, I think these are abnormal times and I think a lot of people have spoken out against what Mr. Trump has done and maybe it’s my warning, training as an intelligence professional. I have seen the lights blinking red in terms of what Mr. Trump has done and is doing and is bringing this country down on the global stage and he's fueling and feeding divisiveness in our country. He continually lies to the American people. The type of things that he is doing, I think I need to speak out. So I have been speaking put rather forcefully because I think it is important to do so. I don’t believe I’m being political at all. I am not a Republican. I am not a Democrat. And many members of the Congress over the years who have security clearances have spoken out rather forcefully against whoever was in the Oval Office if they weren’t from the same political party. So now as a private citizen they are telling me that I should not do that? I am sorry, I am just fundamentally disagree with them."
