President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted.

“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter.

“It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”

Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day.

Trump praised Putin during Monday’s press conference while criticizing the U.S. government and FBI over the election meddling probe. Asked about his past comments that Putin is a “competitor,” Trump told a reporter that “competitor is a compliment.”

Trump also dismissed allegations that his campaign colluded with Russian government agents, calling his investigation into his campaign a “witch hunt.”

“The probe is a disaster for our country. It’s kept us separated,” Trump said.

The comments come after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian military intelligence officials for their role in hacking and disseminating DNC and Clinton campaign emails. The indictment did not identify any Americans.
