Trump Revokes Ex-CIA Chief Brennan’s Security Clearance

The announcement comes the day after Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani warned Brennan may face a grand jury for “quarterbacking” the phony Russia investigation.
“The guy running it is Brennan. And he should be in front of a grand jury,” Giuliani said on Hannity.
“Unless he’s the biggest idiot intelligence agent that ever existed—although he never really did much intelligence work—it’s false. You could look at it [the dossier] and laugh at it.”
The Trump administration has revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, according to a statement from the president.

“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.

Today, in fulfilling that responsibility, I’ve decided to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said reading Trump’s statement.

Rand Paul calls out commie Brennan as "the most biased, bigoted, over-the-top, hyperbolic, unhinged director of the C.I.A. we’ve ever had."

  1. I'd say cancel everyone’s security once they leave government service. Honestly, what would it take if they are needed later. If they had a security clearance it wouldn’t take much to reauthorize. I just don’t think anyone not in government should have government security clearance. For what, to sell information to private companies and foreign governments.

      Absolutely and just because they have say a Top Secret clearance doesn't mean they can see everything that is labeled so as they must have a need to know also.

    2. The rationale is that they can advise, so they need to retain it.

      If someone has a given level of clearance before, and their "expertise" is truly needed, they can be re-granted that level and read into the specifics.

      This blanket retention of clearance needs to be stopped.

  3. Right Badger!! Security clearance is assigned as a condition of a particular position of a government EMPLOYEE. When their EMPLOMENT is ended, so is their security clearance! Furthermore, ALL government officials and agents are OUR EMPLOYEES working UNDER our delegated powers enunciated in the Constitution. We the People are their SUPERIORS when they are operating in their positions! --Ron W
