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.
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?

John Bolton Completes Turncoat Transformation, Slams Trump White House For Delaying Tell-All Book
Bolton’s book is subject to a national security review.
Former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton bemoaned a national security review of his upcoming tell-all book when speaking at Duke University on Monday.
Bolton isn’t pleased that his book, “The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir,” is being delayed while White House national security personnel thoroughly review it to ensure any and all classified information remains private. According to Bolton, the book’s been in review since December 30th, hardly a lengthy period of time to ensure that classified U.S intelligence isn’t released to the broader public.
According to Bolton, the process is censorship.
“I say things in the manuscript about what [Trump] said to me; I hope they become public someday. He tweets, but I can’t talk about it — how fair is that?”
Bolton was fired as National Security Adviser for consistently trying to undermine the President’s America First foreign policy vision, instead preferring a neoconservative approach of regime change, globalism, and wide-ranging foreign intervention.
He’s flirted strongly with anti-Trump resistance liberals since his ouster, falling out of the President’s good graces and drawing his ire in presidential tweets.
For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, “begged” me for a non Senate approved job, which I gave him despite many saying “Don’t do it, sir,” takes the job, mistakenly says “Libyan Model” on T.V., and..

This isn’t the first time that Bolton has claimed the White House are censoring him. He incorrectly believed the White House was blocking his access to his official Twitter account, when by all indications it simply appears he was unaware how to bypass the two-factor authentication needed to access Twitter from a new IP address after his firing.
It’s totally reasonable for Bolton’s profiteering book to be delayed for any and all considerations over classified information. The longtime neoconservative pundit will simply have to wait to cash in.
