Trump Accuses CIA Director Of Leaking ‘Fake News’ About Russian Dossier
Key Points: Pres-Elect Trump, intelligence, comments, CIA Director John Brennan, and leaked.
In an extraordinary escalation of tensions between the president-elect and his intelligence agencies, Donald Trump suggested in a tweet Sunday that outgoing CIA Director John Brennan may have leaked information about the existence of an unsubstantiated report that Russia allegedly has compromising information on Trump.
The president-elect went on the attack after John Brennan warned that Trump’s unconsidered comments could threaten national security.
He is going to be, in a few days’ time, the most powerful person in the world in terms of sitting on top of the United States government, and I think he has to recognize that his words do have impact.”
