FINALLY: Trump Revokes CIA Stooge John Brennan’s Security Clearance

Published

President Donald J. Trump took decisive action and revoked the security clearance of a former high level intelligence official on Wednesday.

“[John] Brennan’s lying and recent conduct characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary is wholly inconsistent with access to the nation’s most closely held secrets and facilities, the very aim of our adversaries which is to sow division and chaos,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

John Brennan was the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from 2013 to 2017, and was the United States Homeland Security Advisor from 2009 to 2013.

“The President has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information and who has access to it,” Sanders said.

Additionally, the White House is reviewing the security clearances of the following bad actors in the intelligence and law enforcement communities: former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Agency (NSA) Director Michael Hayden, former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice, disgraced former FBI attorney Lisa Page, former Obama Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, disgraced former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strozk, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, whose security clearance has been deactivated but not terminated, and Bruce Ohr, who still works for the Justice Department.

“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,” Sanders said.

Big League Politics discussed this practice with retired CIA Chief of Station Brad Johnson in an interview on Monday.

When asked the purpose for keeping the security clearances after intelligence officials leave their positions, Johnson told Big League Politics that there was no particular reason, simply that there is no process in place for their removal.

Brennan, now an MSNBC contributor, should absolutely not have access to classified information, given the conflict of interest. Imagine how easy it is for him to leak classified intel – a major crime – to his current colleagues?

President Trump Rules Out Deploying Troops to Restore Order, Even as Riots Show No Signs of Slowing Down

Trump has opted to not show strength in the face of this crisis.

Published

Just one day after President Donald Trump said he was willing to send military forces into states across the country to put down riots, he is reportedly backing off of the idea.

According to administration officials, Trump is happy with the result of yesterday’s enforcement measures during the riots – which included law enforcement officials being shot and police getting hit by SUVs. He will not be using the Insurrection Act to put troops on the streets to restore order anytime soon.

“The law is absolutely still on the table if things get really bad, but as of now he doesn’t think it’s going to have to go that far,” an administration official said to Axios.

“As President Trump has said, we cannot allow the voices of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by angry mobs, which is why the President will continue to take lawful, decisive action to stop the violence and restore the security of all Americans,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.

Trump made the pivot after RINO Republicans whined about his harsh rhetoric as the country burns due to extreme left-wing riots.

“I don’t think the Pentagon’s keen on getting brought into this unless they absolutely have to. We need to restore order, but using active duty military troops in circumstances like this is a fairly rare occurrence,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Tuesday.

“I would prefer that these things be handled by the state and local authorities,” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said. “You want to de-escalate, rather than escalate.”

Yesterday, Trump declared that he would show zero tolerance for any more rioting and looting in the streets:

President Donald Trump announced tonight that he will deploy military force in cities that are gripped by riots if blue-state governors do not get their acts in order and do so soon.

“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people,” Trump said in his speech. “I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.”

Trump made it clear that he is an “ally of all peaceful protesters” who are protesting about injustices committed against George Floyd, who died during a police encounter with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. However, Trump will not allow the rioters to disgrace Floyd’s memory with their looting and wanton property destruction.

Trump announced that he would deploy “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers” in order to restore order in American cities. These forces could be deployed as soon as tonight considering how blue-state governors have done so poorly at keeping their states safe.

Earlier in the day, Trump had criticized governors throughout the country for their “weak” response to the growing violence.

President Trump has backed off at least temporarily from his boasts, showing yet again that his bark is much worse than his bite.
