President Trump has revoked the security clearance for former CIA director John Brennan, the White House announced Wednesday, in the first decision to come from a review of access for several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders read a statement on behalf of the president during the start of the press briefing, saying Brennan “has a history that calls his credibility into question.”
The statement also said that Brennan had been “leveraging” the clearance to make “wild outbursts” and claims against the Trump administration.
“The president has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information and who has access to it, and that’s what he’s doing is fulfilling that responsibility in this action,” Sanders said Wednesday.
Last month, the White House said they were looking into the clearances for other former officials and Trump critics, including former FBI director James Comey; former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe; former director of national intelligence James Clapper; former national security adviser Susan Rice and former CIA director Michael Hayden (who also worked under President George W. Bush).
When you leave a position that requires a security clearance, you no longer have a “need to know” and usually get “read off” (debriefed) and have to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Brennan should have been denied further access to classified information and had his clearance revoked as soon as he was replaced as CIA director.
His corruption, background, and dubious behavior should have called his job into question a while ago, but such as it was, he fit right in with Obama’s regime.
Brennan colluded with British and Estonian spies to undermine the election.
A Feb. 13, 2010 speech Brennan gave at the New York City School of Law was organized by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group founded by the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization, whose members operate within the United States. During the speech, he soft-peddled Islamic jihad as a touchy-feely soul-searching struggle. Brennan also forced Benghazi survivors to sign non-disclosure agreements, and opined that critics of Obama’s flaccid ‘counter-terrorism’ policies were ‘serving goals of Al Qaeda’ .
More: In a 2008 paper, Brennan called on U.S. officials to “cease public Iran-bashing,” and recommended that the U.S. “tolerate, and even … encourage, greater assimilation of Hezbollah into Lebanon’s political system, a process that is subject to Iranian influence.” He helped strip language about “radical Islam” and similar terms from government vernacular, choosing instead to refer to “violent extremism.”
In 2014, his CIA illegally spied on the U.S. Senate, breaking into congressional staffers’ emails for material to use to prosecute them and then lied about it.
Brennan actually squeezed the fake dossier allegations into Obama’s daily briefings and lied about his knowledge of the dossier before Congress.
What a twat.
Brennan’s propensity to kiss the ass of muzzie cutthroats and his flirtation with the Communist Party should have been enough to prevent him from getting anywhere near the White House, but then again, Barky got in, so go figure.
Brennan is a douchebag who has done everything he can to undermine the national security and foreign policy of the United States. He fit right in with the Obama regime.
