Oliver Stone: 'Shocked' by Intelligence Agencies' Hostility Toward Trump
Oliver Stone joined Tucker Carlson to discuss his new four-hour documentary on Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russia's alleged meddling in the U.S. presidential election, and intelligence agencies' "hostility" toward President Donald Trump.
Stone said that many in the intelligence community have claimed that Putin "hacked" the U.S. election, but he said we don't know that for sure.
"We have to have evidence of this. There's a thin amount of evidence," Stone said. "It's been told to us by three agencies - the CIA, the NSA and the FBI. It was told to us in January, a few days before Mr. Trump came into office."
He said the intelligence assessment is "thin" and simply doesn't have the evidence required.
He also said that CIA Director John Brennan created a "fear and paranoia" with his testimony that Russia directly interfered in the election.
"I'm shocked at what the CIA did and what Brennan did. It seemed like he was very hostile to Trump," Stone said.
"Trump was, in a sense, slapped in the face with two weeks to go," Stone said. "This thing is serious. It's calling Trump, essentially, a 'Manchurian Candidate.' That's as hostile as it's ever been in a transition."
He said if anybody actually influenced the 2016 election, it was former FBI Director James Comey, who announced that the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email was dropped and then reopened just weeks before the election.
