In a rare tweet, former CIA director John Brennan cautioned against President Donald Trump's pick for the Veterans Administration.


"I personally know and greatly respect Ronny Jackson," Brennan began Thursday. However, he said he knows Jackson "as a terrific doctor and Navy officer. However, he has neither the experience nor the credentials to run the very large and complex VA. This is a terribly misguided nomination that will hurt both a good man and our veterans."

The move comes after many have questioned the appointment as being too inexperienced to run an agency.
