Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) accused on Monday of having been a member of the Communist Party during the Cold War, saying that the former CIA director lacks the credibility to discuss President Trump’s meeting with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.
“John Brennan was a disaster as CIA director. He was a disaster as the counterterrorism official. He was a member of the Communist Party during the Cold War,” DeSantis said on Fox News.
“So this is not exactly the guy I would listen to about Russia,” he added.
DeSantis’s comments came hours after Trump sat down with Putin in the Finnish capital Helsinki for a highly anticipated summit.
The article goes on to state the following:
Brennan tore into Trump after the remarks, writing on Twitter that the president’s comments were “nothing short of treasonous” and insisting that Trump is “wholly in the pocket of Putin.”
DeSantis’s allegation that Brennan was a member of the Communist Party hinges on the former CIA director’s admission that he voted for the Communist Party’s presidential candidate Gus Hall in 1976.
