Trump ‘clearly is not carrying out his responsibilities with any sense of purpose and common sense’.
Former CIA Director John Brennan issued fresh criticism of President Trump on Friday night, calling him “drunk on power” after he revoked Brennan’s security clearance this week.
“I think right now, this country is in a crisis in terms of what Mr. Trump has done and is liable to do,” Brennan told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
“And so, are the Republicans on the Hill — who have given him a pass — going to wait for a disaster to happen before they actually find their backbones and spines, to speak up against somebody who clearly, clearly is not carrying out his responsibilities with any sense of purpose and common sense from the standpoint of national security,” Brennan added.
Brennan also told Maddow that he was considering his legal options after Trump pulled his security clearance, saying he wanted “to prevent this type of abuse by Donald Trump in the future.”
