Former CIA Director John Brennan on Monday slammed President Trump for meeting alone with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Brennan, a frequent Trump critic, questioned what the president was hiding from his own advisers by insisting on meeting one-on-one with Putin at their summit in Helsinki, Finland.
Why did Trump meet 1 on 1 with Putin? What might he be hiding from Bolton, Pompeo, Kelly, & the American public? Brennan tweeted. How will Putin use whatever Trump could be hiding to advantage Russia & hurt America? Trumps total lack of credibility renders spurious whatever explanation he gives.
Trump and Putin met one-on-one in Helsinki before moving into an expanded bilateral meeting with advisers. In their first meeting, only translators were present. Trump reportedly did not want to have a note-taker in the room because of a concern that details would leak.
Trump and Putin sat down with photographers and reporters before heading into the meeting. Trump said he thinks the U.S. and Russia would end up having an extraordinary relationship. He said before the start of the expanded meeting that the summit was off to a very, very good start.
Hours before the start of the meeting, Trump sent a tweet blaming years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity," as well as the federal investigation into Russian election meddling, for poor U.S.-Russia relations.
Trump said that he would raise the issue of Russian meddling with Putin, but suggested that he did not think anything would come of it.
Brennan still trying to make himself relevant.
He's history and should just fade away like old generals do. lol
None of his GD wacked out business.
Was Mullah Brennan kneeling on his prayer rug with his smelly butt in the air when he said it?
Presidents talk to other World Leaders , get over it ,LOL
Brennan tweeted. My total lack of credibility renders spurious whatever explanation I give.
I noticed on the LOCAL NBC morning news, the newcaster lady said something about Trump’s meeting with Putin is “... shrouded in mystery....”. So they are setting up the talking point of some collusion/conspiracy will be taking place between POTUS and Putin.
Nothing Brennan says matters at all. It’s irrelevant.
9.5 out of 10 people couldn't tell you who John Brennan is.
Brennan should be in Gitmo.
As Obama once told somebody, (paraphrasing, to Brennon), “Go get yourself a campaign, run for election (president),then YOU can call the shots”, ...otherwise go play with your complimentary departing gift...your retirement package.
It would be an act of great kindness if this guy were to depart this vale of tears...soon.
When you win 306 electoral votes, you get to decide who you meet with and who is in the room.
The Ex-CIA director is a nobody and why the media pays any attention to what he has to say is shameful.
Amen to that!
When do we get to put Brennan in prison?
I wish DOJ or Congress would charge Brennan with perjury.
I'll bet its not,"After the next election I'll have more flexibility.".
Hilarious isnt it?
Imagine if Jimmy Carter had a one to one talk with the Russian leader. Or Billy Clinton. Dont forget, Barack Obama did... and it was all sunshine and happiness and a new era of world peace.
Brennan needing to talk because he knows Trump has the goods on him. But he fools nobody. Gitmo is where you are going Brennan.
I can bet that Trump is not going to be more flexible like a certain Chicago Commie did.
