(CNSNews.com) -- House Speaker Paul Ryan (R.-Wisc.) today tersely rebutted the charge made by former CIA Director John Brennan--who served under President Barack Obama--that President Trump's "performance" at his press conference yesterday with Russian President Vladimir Putin was "treasonous."

At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, CNSNews.com asked Speaker Ryan: "Obama's CIA Director John Brennan said that President Trump's press conference in Helsinki 'rises to & exceeds the threshold of high crimes & misdemeanors' and 'was nothing short of treasonous.' Do you agree with Brennan that Tump's actions were treasonous?"

Speaker Ryan replied: "I do not."

Following President Trump's July 16 press conference with Putin, John Brennan tweeted, "Donald Trump's press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes & misdemeanors.' It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???"
