Russia “brazenly interfered” in the the 2016 election. That’s the contention of former CIA Director John Brennan as he testifies before the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill today.

Brennan also told members of Congress in his testimony that he personally warned the head of Russia’s domestic intelligence service, the FSB, that any attempts by Russia to interfere with the U.S. election would backfire and be met with outrage by American voters.

His testimony is the first time Brennan has said publicly that he had concerns about ties between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
