John Brennan

President Trump is making good on his promise to snatch the security clearances of former Obama cabinet officials who no longer work for the government.

Brennan, the former head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), responded angrily to Trump pulling his security clearance. He accused the president of colluding with the Russians in an op-ed piece published in the New York Times on Thursday.

Brennan implied that Trump revoked his clearance because he is desperate and has something to hide.

“Trump clearly has become more desperate to protect himself and those close to him, 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," he wrote.

Trump admitted that he snatched Brennan's clearance after Brennan openly criticized Trump's administration in the news media.

"It's something that had to be done," said Trump, who referred to Robert Mueller's investigation as a "sham" and "these people led it!"

Trump said he is reviewing the security clearances of other former Obama administration officials, including former FBI Director James Comey.

Revoking their security clearance means they can no longer hold certain government jobs or read classified documents.

But critics point out that Trump never revoked the security clearance of his former national security adviser Mike Flynn who was fired for lying to Vice President Mike Pence.

Flynn later pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

    Trump is such a petty short-sighted b!tch.
    He does know that people in his cabinet may need the advise from some of these people
    But I forgot Trump knows more than the generals./s

    Oooooooh....it's getting better and better. Trump is Draining the Swamp and there are more circling the drain. You have to have above average intelligence and intuition to put the pieces together and to see what's really going on. Unfortunately, too many people don't. As Trump has prevented wars, busted pedophile groups and had them arrested including a huge group taking kids from Haiti, expose the corruption and criminality of those who have helped to destroy this country while trying to make trade deals to keep this country afloat, Mueller showcases a phony trial with Manafort because of how he spends his money waaay back in 2006 or something. It's like "oh, so you bought alligator shoes and a LV handbag for your wife?...that's criminal!" What fools. Mueller should be ashamed. Trump getting their asses out one-by-one...play time is over....! He should have fired Mueller from the beginning. I have to keep updating my poster....! BWAHAHAHA...I can't wait to add Mad Maxine.

    So, if Trump believes as he has stated, that Brennan is responsible for the Russia probe, and he revokes his security clearance because of this - couldn’t that be construed as obstruction of justice? And I don’t know - I’m asking! He fired Comey because of the Russia probe too, right?

    This White liberal guy was just talking to me and dude is so brainwashed. Like most liberals he is dripping in condescension and just self-righteousness.He could not even get past himself to hear anything that doesn't reflect his spoon fed thought process.

    President Trump is making major chess moves.He is using the plot to get him onto his enemies.I'm beginning to believe that Sessions is doing more than I thought.According to my research Brennan is a communist....

    Navy Adm. William McRaven, right, and U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis in 2013. (Gary Cameron/Reuters)

    By William H. McRaven
    August 16 at 2:44 PM

    William H. McRaven, a retired Navy admiral, was commander of the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command from 2011 to 2014. He oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan that killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

    Dear Mr. President:

    Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.

    Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.

    Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs.

    A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow. A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.

    Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.

    If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be.
