“'John Brennan is panicking. He has disgraced himself, he has disgraced the Country, he has disgraced the entire Intelligence Community. He is the one man who is largely responsible for the destruction of American’s faith in the Intelligence Community and in some people at the top of the FBI,” Trump wrote on Twitter. 

“'Brennan started this entire debacle about President Trump. We now know that Brennan had detailed knowledge of the (phony) Dossier...he knows about the Dossier, he denies knowledge of the Dossier, he briefs the Gang of 8 on the Hill about the Dossier, which they then used to start an investigation about Trump,” the president added.

While Trump was using Bongino’s comments, he added in his own commentary by labeling the controversial dossier “phony.”

“'It is that simple. This guy is the genesis of this whole Debacle. This was a Political hit job, this was not an Intelligence Investigation. Brennan has disgraced himself, he’s worried about staying out of Jail.’ Dan Bongino,” Trump said.

The president appeared to be loosely quoting Bongino from an appearance he made early Monday on “Fox & Friends.” 

Bongino hosts his own podcast, called “The Dan Bongino Show," and has unsuccessfully run for the House and Senate several times. He is also a host for NRATV.

"Mr. Trump: Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. Jim Clapper is a man of integrity, honesty, ethics, & morality.
