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?
