Navy Revoked Security Clearance From Officer Retweeted by Trump in Wake of Charlottesville

A Navy reservist who known to push debunked conspiracy theories on social media was stripped of his security clearance, according to reports by NBC News.

Lt. j.g. Jack Posobiec, a Navy Reserve intelligence officer, was thrust into the public spotlight this week after President Trump retweeted his take on the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, in which the officer implied the public outrage was fueled by media bias rather than concern of violence, according to NBC News . . .

Posobiec told Military Times Thursday that his security clearance was “reviewed” earlier this year and he resigned from the Office of Naval Intelligence in March and filed a complaint with the Inspector General claiming a “toxic work climate” and saying his chain of command treated him poorly due to his personal political beliefs. He said he never advocated for Trump in the office or on duty. (Read more from “Navy Revoked Security Clearance From Officer Retweeted by Trump in Wake of Charlottesville” HERE)
