The former director of the Central Intelligence Agency demanded that Republican "patriots" impeach President Donald Trump for his performance at the Helsinki summit with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin.

John Brennan, who directed the National Counterterrorism Center and served as CIA director, cited the basis for impeachment listed in Article II of the United States Constitution.

"Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes & misdemeanors,'" Brennan tweeted Monday.

"It was nothing short of treasonous," he charged.

"Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you?" Brennan asked.
