Remember when the former CIA director John Brennan said the President meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki was treasonous? He was very specific and he clearly meant the meeting was “treasonous” and the President was a traitor.

Perhaps Brennan might take the time to understand what treason means.
In the mean time he needs to become a bit more familiar with the concept of “Slander.”
It’s difficult to find someone guilty of slander particularly a public figure like the President of the United States. (Source)
In the mean time president Trump could go ahead and tie him up in court for the rest of Brennan’s life.
Defamation is the same thing.
As the saying goes, “Some people must learn the hard way.”
The betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.
The Treason Clause traces its roots back to an English statute enacted during the reign of Edward III (1327–1377).
This statute prohibited levying war against the king, adhering to his enemies, or contemplating his death. (Source)
It was an imbecilic comment for a former CIA director to make when it would in no way met the constitutional definition.
Just the same, people took it seriously with 216,000 ‘liking’ it and nearly 100,000 retweeting it, sending fake news around the world.

Brennan tweeted about the so-called “treason” on July 16 of this year.
“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors,” he wrote, “It was nothing short of treasonous.
Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”
That seems rather clear. Brennan said the meeting was “treasonous” and exceeded the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors”[…]
Oh let me guess, on the morning of November 9, 2016 after the Associated Press called the Presidential election, the Muslim convert (or so it seems) found himself “triggered” after which he became a tad erratic, feeling of which has lasted for the past 600+ days?
Well then, it’s a damned good thing that POTUS rescinded Brennan’s security clearance.
