John Brennan: Russia recruited Americans to ‘wittingly and unwittingly’ influence the 2016 election – Washington Times

“They will try to seed partisan animosity here in Washington and try to roil the waters,” Mr. Brennan told a tense hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. “Even though the election is over, I think Mr. Putin and Russian intelligence services are trying to actively exploit what is going on now in Washington to their benefit and to our detriment.”

The three-decade veteran of the CIA blasted Washington’s culture of leaks, a problem the White House wrestled with this month after President Trump met with Russia’s ambassador and foreign minister in the Oval Office and news later seeped out that the two men discussed classified information.

“These continue to be very, very damaging leaks, and I find them appalling, and they need to be tracked down,” Mr. Brennan said, adding that leaks were national security threats.
