Former CIA Director John Brennan tore into President Trump for his comments during a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, arguing that Trump’s performance was “nothing short of treasonous.”

“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Brennan tweeted Monday.

Putin denied interfering in the 2016 election, despite the U.S. intelligence community determining that Russia was responsible for hacking into computers owned by the Democratic Party during the campaign.

When Trump was asked whether he believes the U.S. intelligence community’s findings or Putin’s denial, Trump appeared to side with the Russian president.
