Trump blasts former and current US intelligence agents, calls them ‘sleazebags’

In a surprising attack targeting the US intelligence community, President Donald Trump has taken a swipe at current and top echelons of the agency.

While attacking John Bolton, his former national security adviser, Trump said:

“John Bolton, one of the dumbest people I’ve met in government and sadly, I’ve met plenty, states often that I respected, and even trusted, Vladimir Putin of Russia more than those in our Intelligence Agencies. While of course that is not true, if the first people you met from so called American Intelligence were Dirty Cops who have now proven to be sleazebags at the highest level like James Comey, proven liar James Clapper, & perhaps the lowest of them all, Wacko John Brennan who headed the CIA, you could perhaps understand my reluctance to embrace!”
