President Trump tweeted about Brennan, writing, “John Brennan on the Mueller probe, ‘I don’t know if I received bad information, but I THINK I SUSPECTED THAT THERE WAS MORE THAN THERE ACTUALLY WAS.’ Wow, he admits he was wrong! Congress should go back to work on drug prices etc.”
President Trump’s tweet was a reference to Brennan’s March 25 appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe shortly after the release of the Mueller report.
When asked if he was surprised by the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not find evidence of collusion in his Russia probe, Brennan replied, “Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I suspected there was more than there actually was…”
Brennan replied to the President’s tweet minutes later, writing, “I subsequently learned from the Mueller report that there was a lot more evidence of collusion and obstruction of justice than was indicated in the misleading & highly politicized Barr memo. Your obvious fear of Congressional action is warranted & your dishonesty is appalling.”
