By Townhall. Former CIA Director John Brennan no longer has a security clearance. It’s been revoked. He’s out of the club. Oh, and you bet the liberal news media was all over this, once again going into meltdown mode over something that was perfectly within the president’s authority. But like with anything that Trump does, we’re always on the verge of a total constitutional crisis…in CNN-land. Guy also wrote that Brennan’s pervasive partisan antics warranted his clearance being revoked. Oh, but it’s all politically motivated, you see (via Politico):
President Donald Trump’s decision to revoke former CIA director John Brennan’s security clearance is a “politically motivated” attempt to silence those who disagree with the president, Brennan said in a New York Times op-ed on Thursday.
“Mr. Trump clearly has become more desperate to protect himself and those close to him,” Brennan said. “which is why he made the politically motivated decision to revoke my security clearance in an attempt to scare into silence others who might dare to challenge him.”
Brennan’s op-ed published Thursday, one day after the White House announced the president had revoked the former CIA director’s security clearance and placed the clearances of several current and former officials under review. Brennan, who has often been critical of Trump, helmed the intelligence agency from 2013 to 2017.
Wait, you’re saying there’s a campaign to silence you, yet you can still say whatever you want, right? You just did. And the anti-Trump media are going to give you even more media its and exposure over this security clearance nonsense. Former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson also torpedoed this absurd narrative.
