The president-elect last week blasted intelligence agencies after it was reported that Trump had been briefed on an unverified dossier alleging Russia had compromising information on him.

Brennan said Sunday that the president-elect needs to be disciplined about what he says publicly and criticized Trump for likening the actions of the intelligence community to those of Nazis.
