Former CIA Director: I Lost Faith in Russia's 'Willingness and Interest to do the Right Thing'
Business Insider's US Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell sat down with Brennan at an Intersport Leadership Summit at The Masters on April 6.
Former CIA Director John Brennan says President Donald Trump is right to try and improve the United States' relationship with Russia. But, speaking from experience, he is skeptical Trump will be able to pull it off.
During the 45-minute discussion, Brennan said he "tried like heck" to improve the relationship between Russia and the United States, but after a number of meetings and phone calls, he "lost faith" in the country's "willingness and interest to do the right thing."
