“If there is a scintilla of evidence that the president colluded with the Russians and Brennan had that evidence, the entire world would already know,” Scott told Fox News’s Neil Cavuto on Saturday.

Brennan, who had his security clearance revoked by Trump his past week, wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times on Thursday that Trump’s “claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash.”

The former CIA director’s argument centered around Trump’s public statements and media reports on the ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

“So the fact of the matter is, a part of what he said in his op-ed is that the president’s public comments suggest collusion,” Scott said on Saturday. “I think that’s ridiculous.”

The president has repeatedly insisted that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
