Trump’s Latest Tweets Attack CIA Director


President-elect Donald Trump is using his best weapon against mainstream media – his Twitter account – to hammer outgoing CIA Director John Brennan.

Trump said Brennan did a poor job as the leader of the agency and even went as far as suggesting that Brennan may have leaked the unverified dossier which tried to link Trump to Russian intelligence.

In Brennan’s interview with Fox News on Sunday, he attacked President-elect Trump for “talking and tweeting” and questioning intelligence reports. Brennan also accused Trump of underestimating the Russians.

Trump tweeted in response, “Oh really, couldn’t do much worse – just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?”

Trump then followed up with a series of tweets and addressed the CIA director Brennan’s comments.

This is not the first time Trump and the intelligence agencies have butted heads. During Trump’s campaign, the President-elect started with Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, for closing the case against Hillary Clinton.

At Trump’s press conference last week, he accused the intelligence community of behaving like “Nazi Germany” by possibly leaking the report from Buzzfeed that contained unverified accusations of sexual encounters involving Trump and Russian women, as well as alleging Trump staff members worked with the Russian intel to defeat Clinton.

James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence has denied that the intelligence community had anything to do with the leaked report.
