Partisan swamp creature can no longer leverage classified info, says WH
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.
As one example, Trump’s statement referred to when Brennan lied in 2014 about the CIA spying on Congress .
Additionally, Sanders pointed out that Brennan also lied to Congress under oath last year, claiming that the intelligence community did not utilize the infamous Steele Dossier to secure FISA warrants in the surveillance of Trump campaign officials in 2016.
Sanders also said Brennan’s “unfounded and outrageous allegations” and “wild outbursts” about Trump disqualifies him from retaining access to classified information which he “leverages” on MSNBC, where he now works as a commentator.
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.”
Senator Rand Paul praised Trump’s decision Wednesday on Twitter.
“I applaud President Trump for his revoking of John Brennan’s security clearance. I urged the President to do this,” Paul said.
Brennan later responded on Twitter, claiming the revoking of his clearance is meant to “suppress” his “freedom of speech.”
“This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent,” he tweeted.
