"This is not funny," Brzezinski said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"This is really bad. Just for the record, we are all really nervous. So if people out there feel nervous, we do too. We don’t think this is funny."

Brzezinski also said the country is at a "low point in American history."
 
"I don't know how anybody can defend this president, even if it's their job," she said.

"Like you've got to have a job after this. You've got to look in the mirror after this. Sarah Huckabee or whoever is going to speak out next. You have to look in the mirror and think about this country after this is over. You need to think of the end game here."
 
On Saturday morning, the president, citing no evidence, claimed Obama had his phones tapped in Trump Tower before his presidential victory.
 
Trump questioned whether it was legal for a sitting president to be "'wire tapping' a race for president prior to an election."
 
"How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process," the president tweeted Saturday. "This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!"
 
A spokesman for Obama on Saturday said in a statement that a "cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice."
 
"As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen," spokesman Kevin Lewis added. "Any suggestion otherwise is simply false."
 
FBI Director James Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject Trump's claims, according to a New York Times report.
 
White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Sunday called the reports about "potentially politically motivated investigations" before the 2016 presidential election "very troubling."

In a series of tweets, he said the president is "requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigation powers were abused in 2016."
