President-elect Donald Trump tweeted Sunday night about outgoing CIA Director John Brennan, questioning if he’s the “leaker of Fake News?”

Trump’s first tweet quoted a Fox News headline that read, “CIA’s Brennan warns Trump, says he doesn’t ‘fully understand’ Russia threat” and added commentary of his own.

“Oh really, couldn’t do … much worse – just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?

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.
