Trump strikes back: Brennan's security clearance revoked, 'erratic behavior' cited

By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Updated: 2:46 p.m. on Wednesday, August 15, 2018

President Trump on Wednesday revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, citing his “erratic conduct and behavior.”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, reading a statement from the president, said Mr. Brennan “leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official” to make false charges against the administration.

The president said Mr. Brennan’s actions have “exceeded the limits of any professional courtesy.”

Mr. Brennan has been a harsh critic of Mr. Trump, and a network commentator, accusing him of treasonous actions in his dealings with Russia.

Mr. Trump said he’s still weighing revoking the security clearances of former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice, fired FBI agent Peter Strzok and others — all Democrats.

"Erratic behavior" in this case means having opinions that offended our sensitive snowflake president.

Brennan lied when he told Congress that the phony dossier played no part in the FISA warrants and that turned out to be a lie.
Shoot, he lied back in 2014 when he said the CIA had never improperly accessed the computer files of congressional staffers and that turned out to be a big lie

Besides there's no reason for him to have security clearance.

I didn't listen to his response because I don't give a fig what he has to say.

Among other things, and contrary to the claims by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, the government did indeed apprise the FISA Court of the provenance of the “Steele dossier” (and former spy Christopher Steele’s possible bias); it offered additional evidence to support its conclusion that the key claims in the dossier were at least “credible;” and there appears to have been at least some other evidence besides the dossier offered in support of the government’s claim that there was “probable cause” to believe that Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power. https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinio...n-t-ncna894146

And that's the real point, neither does anyone in the Trump administration.

The reason ex-intelligence officers retain their clearance is for the possibility of consultation. Now that Brennan and Gates et-al have become foes of the administration, they would never be called for their opinion or "expertise" on anything, so there is no reason to continue their high security status.

End Of Story . . .

Which explains Trump's form of leadership, so to speak. He puts his image, before the safety of the country; that is what megalomania*** is all about; Trump is unfit to have the power invested in the office of the Presidency.

***obsession with the exercise of power, especially in the domination of others, and, delusion about one's own power or importance (typically as a symptom of manic or paranoid disorder).

Bad sock puppet! Bad!!

Topic is Brennan's security clearance! Why don't you as either a retired LEO "investigator" or "manager" explain why Brennan should retain his security clearance. Go ahead.

Check your script notes first.
