Former CIA Director John Brennan has expressed confidence that US President Donald Trump will never be permitted to run for public office again.

In reaction to a Monday tweet by Trump, in which the president claimed that the case against his former long-time personal lawyer Michael Cohen does not implicate him, Brennan wrote that there was no possible way for the businessman-turned-president to escape from justice. 

Whenever you send out such inane tweets, I take great solace in knowing that you realize how much trouble you are in & how impossible it will be for you to escape American justice. Mostly, I am relieved that you will never have the opportunity to run for public office again. https://t.co/JzB6YH8C6H

“Whenever you send out such inane tweets, I take great solace in knowing that you realize how much trouble you are in & how impossible it will be for you to escape American justice,” Brennan wrote.

“I am relieved that you will never have the opportunity to run for public office again,” he added.

Trump’s former attorney, who used to be his fixer, implicated the ex-businessman in illegal payments.

Experts believe Cohen's confessions will have serious consequences for the president, including jail time. 

Trump, however, says that Cohen is trying to get his jail sentence for his illegal activities reduced by implicating him in the dealings as part of a plea bargain with prosecutors working on an investigation led by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller. 

He has rejected accusations against him and made efforts to describe the Mueller investigation against him as a witch hunt.
