Former CIA Director John Brennan shot back at President Trump on Sunday for "trying to delegitimize" the country's intelligence officials and their unanimous conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election. As Trump flew to Hanoi, Vietnam, after the meeting Saturday, he told reporters aboard Air Force One that the high-ranking intelligence officials who compiled a report finding Russian Federation interfered in the election "are political hacks".
Earlier, trump said that Vladimir Putin is offended because of the U.S. charges of Russian interference in the elections of the President of the United States. A special counsel and several congressional committees are investigating whether his campaign colluded with Moscow.
Former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former FBI Director James Comey, served under both Republican and Democrat governments.
Trump's inability to distinguish the interests of his ego from those of his country explains his rapport with the Philippines' blood-stained president, Rodrigo Duterte, with whom he shares a disdain for the press, a loathing of former President Barack Obama, and a penchant for insulting people's mothers. They don't (openly) say collusion is real, but it's awkward enough that they claim Moscow engaged in efforts to help the president win.
"If Donald Trump is under investigation and his administration and people around him, the Russian Federation collusion and whole Mueller investigation, right", he continued, "in simple terms the president would think it's probably not in my best self interest to be seen again sidling with Vladimir Putin, cozying up to Vladimir Putin and making lovey dovey eyes in these pictures we've been showing here".

"He said he didn't meddle", Trump told reporters on an Air Force One flight to Hanoi, Vietnam. You can only ask so many times.
"As for whether I believe or not".
Such a comment is out of character for the iconoclastic, blunt president.
"As now led, by fine people, I believe very much in our intelligence agencies", Trump said.
