Senator Rand Paul is calling for President Trump to strip the security clearance of jilted former National Security Advisor John Bolton, after the ultra-hawk revealed classified national security information in an upcoming tell-all book.
Bolton was fired by Trump as National Security Advisor in September for endlessly agitating for neocon wars.
Bolton has flirted with the prospect of testifying in the Senate’s sham impeachment trial, going turncoat on President Trump after previously endorsing his negotiations with the President of Ukraine. The career uber-hawk has been rumored to expose a plethora of classified information in his upcoming book, ‘The Room Where It Happened.‘
A potential Senate testimony could prove lucrative for his book sales, as anti-Trump liberals ignore any notion of policy-based politics and coronate the former Bush administration official as a saint for his sudden opposition to Trump.
In response to Bolton’s change of heart, Rand Paul called for his security clearance to be stripped in a Saturday tweet.

Sources indicate that the removal of Bolton’s clearance ranges from possible to likely. President Trump slammed his former National Security Advisor’s release of classified information in a tweet last week.
….many more mistakes of judgement, gets fired because frankly, if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now, and goes out and IMMEDIATELY writes a nasty & untrue book. All Classified National Security. Who would do this?

Rand Paul previously led the charge in calling for deep state liberal John Brennan to lose his security clearance. Brennan, a former CIA director in the Obama administration, almost immediately reinvented himself as a vociferous anti-Trump pundit upon leaving office.
Classified information exists to protect the safety and well-being of U.S service members and the general public. It’s not a gimmick for career bureaucrats such as Bolton and Brennan to monetize.
Deep staters who callously use their government positions to mine information for profit should lose their security clearances.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
