Some people may wonder why former CIA boss, John Brennan ha his security clearance yanked. Some people may wonder why these former officials still retain them after they leave the service of the nation. President Donald Trump knows the answer to both of those questions and he put that knowledge to good use. Mr. Brennan was of no possible use to the current administration and could not have been counted on to provide helpful information if it was needed. He had also aligned himself with the virulent opposition, so why give him any credence he did not deserve? Read more below.
In response to Democrat Senator Warner let’s make one thing clear. Revoking the security clearance of a person who longer “needs to know” is *not* Nixonian. Weaponizing the IRS against conservative citizens who held zero power *was* Nixonian.
I applaud President Trump for his revoking of John Brennan’s security clearance. I urged the President to do this. Read more here: https://t.co/SAQNTJ1UAn

Brennan falsely accused President Trump of treason. Such dangerous hyperbole may be tolerable for unhinged TV pundits, but it is unacceptable from a former CIA Director. It was a new low. Of course Brennan’s security clearance was revoked. #Brennan #BrennanClearanceRevoked

Brennan loses security clearance.
-Clapper lied under oath
-Rice blamed Benghazi on a video
-Page demoted, then left
If any of these folks still have a clearance, they should lose it too.

As Written and Reported By Saagar Enjeti for the Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump revoked former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance Wednesday, citing Brennan’s repeated public appearances attacking him and past behavior while in office in a lengthy statement.
Trump noted that the extension of security clearance to Brennan and other former officials was a courtesy and so that they could be consulted by current government officials for their expertise. The President however noted that “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.”
Trump cited Brennan’s past misstatements to Congress in 2014 about accessing congressional staffers emails and his discussion of the Steele dossier’s role in assessing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The president took particular issue with Brennan’s status as a TV pundit who has been one of the most outspoken officials against his tenure, frequently calling him unfit for office. “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…..
