Former CIA Director John Brennan slammed the House Intelligence Committee’s final report on their Russia investigation, calling it “highly partisan” and saying that it “means nothing.”

Brennan, who was appointed by former President Obama and who has become one of President Trump’s fiercest critics, said people should wait for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to conclude.

“A highly partisan, incomplete, and deeply flawed report by a broken House Committee means nothing,” wrote Brennan. “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.”

His comment came as a reply to Trump, who again called for an end to the investigation into Russian election meddling in response to the committee’s report.

The GOP-led committee ended its investigation earlier this year.

The report criticized both the Trump and Hillary Clinton campaigns for “poor judgment and ill-considered actions” related to dealings with Russia.

Democrats on the panel have harshly criticized the report.
