President Trump has pulled John Brennan’s security clearance and is still working on the clearances for James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr.
The president, he doesn’t play Y’all. James Clapper should be next as both he and Brennan work for CNN. That will cut off CNN from classified material, they can’t be trusted with. In fact, no one on that list can be trusted and by time Congress or Sessions acts, Trump’s second term will be over. There is no justifiable reason to allow them to keep access to this material or anything new that pops up.
The administration has threatened the action before. Sarah Sanders said today in a statement from the President:
“I have decided to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Historically, former heads of intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been allowed to retain access to classified information after their government service so that they can consult with their successors regarding matters about which they may have special insight and as a professional courtesy. Neither of these justifications supports Mr. Brennan’s continued access to classified information.”
In a statement from the president read by administration spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the White House, the president accused Brennan of using his access to the nation’s secrets for personal benefit.
“As the head of the executive branch and commander-in-chief, I have a unique constitutional responsibility to protect the nation’s classified information, including by controlling access to it,” Trump’s statement read.
“Today in fulfilling that responsibility, I’ve decided to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency.”
Let’s hope the president moves swiftly, but I am also wondering if the Deep State will try to find an activist judge to rule that he can’t do it although constitutionally, he has an unrestricted right to do so.
