Former CIA director John Brennan on Thursday, the Fourth of July, slammed the U.S. Supreme Court’s granting of whole immunity to Donald Trump for “official” acts performed when president.

“This is certainly not the America I thought we would live in as we celebrate the 248th anniversary of our country’s independence,” Brennan, who led the CIA from 2013 to 2017 and served six presidents, wrote in a stinging opinion piece for MSNBC.

What “appalls and worries me most are the abject ignorance and apparent indifference of the six” conservative justices who made the ruling, mentioned Brennan.

It could have “deeply disturbing practical consequences if an unprincipled and politically corrupt individual is ever elected president of the United States in the future,” he warned. Read Brennan’s essay right here.

Brennan expanded on the subject in an interview later Thursday on MSNBC, throughout which he warned that the choice would enable future presidents — akin to former president and present presumptive GOP presidential nominee Trump — to do just about no matter they needed with out authorized consequence.

Brennan added, “It’s devastating.”
