On this weekend’s broadcast of on “Fox News Sunday,” CIA Director John Brennan said President-elect Donald Trump’s tweet comparing the U.S. intelligence community to Nazis was “outrageous.”
Last week reacting to a leaked dossier of unverified information about Trump and Russia the president-elect tweeted, “Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to ‘leak’ into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?”

Today Brennan said, “What I do find outrageous is equating an intelligence community with Nazi Germany. I do take great umbrage at that, and there is no basis for Mr. Trump to point fingers at the intelligence community for leaking information that was already available publicly.”
