President Donald Trump claimed House Republicans had cleared him and his campaign of Russia collusion -- but former CIA director John Brennan warned him the worst was yet to come.


The House Intelligence Committee's GOP majority issued a report Friday that found no evidence of collusion, although the panel's Democrats dissented, and Trump called for the special counsel probe's end.

"Just Out: House Intelligence Committee Report released," Trump tweeted. "'No evidence' that the Trump Campaign 'colluded, coordinated or conspired with Russia.' Clinton Campaign paid for Opposition Research obtained from Russia- Wow! A total Witch Hunt! MUST END NOW!"

Brennan replied to Trump's tweet a short time later, and cautioned the president against prematurely celebrating the GOP findings.

"A highly partisan, incomplete, and deeply flawed report by a broken House Committee means nothing," Brennan tweeted. "The Special Counsel’s work is being carried out by professional investigators—not political staffers. SC’s findings will be comprehensive & authoritative. Stay tuned, Mr. Trump...."
