During his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump was asked if he believed U.S. Intelligence Community or Putin on Russian hacking:
I don’t see any reason why it would be [Russia.]
In response, Ex-CIA director and former National Counterterrorism Center John Brennan called Trump “treasonous”:
Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” 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???
