There is no reason for his security clearance the moment the present administration stopped seeking his input, and especially when he shopped himself to the cable channels using his former position as a means to attack this president. He’s commie to boot who should never have made it to that position in the first place. Enough said.
TRUMP YANKS JOHN BRENNAN’S SECURITY CLEARANCE
The swamp is being cleared, slowly but surely.
President Trump revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan. There is probably no person in America that is more deserving of losing this privilege on account of his reckless conduct than Brennan. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a lengthy statement from the president to reporters on Wednesday explaining the reasons for his decision. The president’s statement said that “at this point in my administration, any benefits that senior officials might glean from consultations with Mr. Brennan are now outweighed by the risks posed by his erratic conduct and behavior.” In addition to “a history that calls into question his objectivity and credibility,” the statement continued, “Mr. Brennan has recently leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official with access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations — wild outbursts on the Internet and television — about this administration. Mr. 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.”
While he was serving as the CIA director under former President Barack Obama, Brennan was reported to have been the prime instigator behind the Russian collusion witch hunt. He used the discredited, unverified Steele dossier as a lure for the FBI to get involved. According to a report by Paul Sperry, published by RealClear Investigations on February 11, 2018, “Several Capitol Hill sources say Brennan, a fiercely loyal Obama appointee, talked up the dossier to Democratic leaders, as well as the press, during the campaign. They say he also fed allegations about Trump-Russia contacts directly to the FBI, while pressuring the bureau to conduct an investigation of several Trump campaign figures starting in the summer of 2016.”
The salacious unsubstantiated dossier was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, but that did not matter to Brennan. “Just because it was unverified didn’t mean it wasn’t true,” Brennan said about the dossier on Meet the Press earlier this year. The dossier served as a major justification for the FBI and the Department of Justice to apply to the FISA court for a surveillance warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. In trying later to distance himself from the infamous Steele dossier, Brennan may have committed perjury in his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee in May 2017.
