In multiple tweets, a former CIA operations officer who ran as an independent candidate in the 2016 presidential election, accused Donald Trump of being a "traitor" following revelations that the FBI was investigating him for possibly being an agent of the Kremlin.

Linking to the blockbuster report from the New York Times that FBI officials opened up a secret investigation into the president over concerns behind his motivation to fire former FBI Director James Comey, Evan McMullin called the president out.

"That the FBI had cause to investigate a sitting American president for possible collaboration with a foreign power against the nation should shock and awaken us to the gravity of our situation. Still beyond the perception of many, Trump has betrayed us," McMullin tweeted.

He followed up saying he is "fascinated by traitors" and laid into Trump.

"I’ve always been fascinated by traitors," he wrote. "They consider themselves highly intelligent, yet fail to understand how likely they are to be caught. When they are, they become men without a home, having betrayed their countrymen and been used by an enemy. So it will be with this one."
