Former CIA director John Brennan blasted President Donald Trump for celebrating the firing of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe late last night in a tweet, with a tweet of his own calling the president a "disgrace" to his office.

"When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you," Brenna tweeted early Saturday morning.

The former intelligence official was responding to a late night tweet where Trump wrote: "Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!"
