Brennan: Trump could block intel agencies from preventing Russian interference in 2020

JOHN BRENNAN, FMR. CIA DIRECTOR, MSNBC CONTRIBUTOR: Well, I wouldn’t put it past him to try to prevent the intelligence agency from understanding what might be happening if he felt that was going to be harmful to his policy or personal interests or objectives.

That’s why I’m concerned about the upcoming presidential elections. It’s clear that the Russians interfered to help Mr. Trump in 2016. Is Mr. Trump turning a blind eye because he doesn’t mind if the Russians involve themselves again to try to enhance his prospects for reelection?

It’s really quite unnerving to think this president, Mr. Trump, can, in fact, turn off law enforcement and its intelligence capabilities if they pose a threat to him personally.
