Brennan’s Security Clearance Revoked

Obama’s hatchet man voted communist, lied, and was generally unhinged. It was time.

President Donald Trump followed through on threats and revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, Barack Obama’s lead hatchet man in the “collusion” kerfuffle.

Don’t forget what Sen. Rand Paul noted last month, too: “You have to realize John Brennan started his illustrious career by voting for the Communist Party.” After Brennan accused Trump of treason, Paul also called Brennan “the most biased, bigoted, over-the-top, hyperbolic sort of unhinged director of the CIA we’ve ever had.” He was right.

In a statement on the decision, Trump said:

Mr. Brennan has recently leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official with access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations … about this Administration. Mr. Brennan’s lying and recent conduct … is wholly inconsistent with access to the Nation’s most closely held secrets and facilitates the very aim of our adversaries, which is to sow division and chaos.

More broadly, the issue of Mr. Brennan’s security clearance raises larger questions about the practice of former officials maintaining access to our Nation’s most sensitive secrets long after their time in Government has ended. Such access is particularly inappropriate when former officials have transitioned into highly partisan positions and seek to use real or perceived access to sensitive information to validate their political attacks…

For this reason, I have also begun to review the more general question of the access to classified information by former Government officials.“

That list includes James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Susan Rice, and James Clapper.

Brennan responded with a tweet declaring martyrdom: “My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent.” We’re guessing he’s angling for a book deal worth far more than either his clearances or his “principles.”
