Former CIA Director John Brennan on Wednesday slammed President Trump over what he called his "temper tantrums," saying that the president's recent behavior indicates he's panicked about the Russia investigation.

"Your bizarre tweets and recent temper tantrums reveal your panic over the likelihood the Special Counsel will soon further complicate your life, putting your political & financial future in jeopardy," Brennan tweeted, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"Fortunately, Lady Justice does not do NDAs," he added, an apparent reference to the Trump campaign's reported use of nondisclosure agreements for its employees.

Brennan's comments come after Trump has repeatedly taken to Twitter to voice outrage with his critics. Trump on Sunday lashed out at the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a trio of Fox News anchors and NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

He's also denounced George Conway, a frequent critic who is married to White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway, on multiple occasions this week.

Trump on Wednesday tweeted that George Conway was "VERY jealous of his wife's success & angry that I, with her help, didn't give him the job he so desperately wanted."

"I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!" Trump said of George Conway.

George Conway said in a tweet Wednesday that Trump's criticism of him seemed to prove his point that he has narcissistic personality disorder.

"You. Are. Nuts," he said in a separate tweet.

Brennan has repeatedly criticized Trump and the GOP over the past two years. He said in December that he hoped the "forthcoming exposure of (Trump's) malfeasance and corruption will convince enough Republicans to abandon" him.

Trump, meanwhile, has derided the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt."
