Former CIA Director John Brennan called President Trump’s press conference on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin “treasonous.”

Mr. Trump dismissed an opportunity during the press conference in Helsinki, Finland to confront Mr. Putin about the allegation of Russia interfering with the U.S. 2016 election, calling the special counsel’s investigation a “disaster for our country.”

Mr. Brennan, who has often been a critic of the president, took to Twitter to react to the president’s comments.

Sen. Jeff Flake, Arizona Republican, who is also a vocal critic of the president, joined in on Twitter, saying Mr. Trump’s performance was “shameful.”
