“I WILL NOT RELENT” – Brennan Slams Trump After His Security Clearance Revoked
On Wednesday, Sarah Sanders announced President Trump revoked ex-CIA Chief John Brennan’s security clearance during a press briefing.
“Historically, former heads of intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been allowed to retain access to classified information after their government service so that they can consult with their successors regarding matters about which they may have special insights and as a professional courtesy. Neither of these justifications supports Mr. Brennan’s continued access to classified information.”

Ex-CIA chief John Brennan slammed Trump Wednesday afternoon and vowed, “I will not relent.”
Brennan said Trump’s decision to pull his security clearance is “part of a broader effort” to suppress freedom of speech and punish critics.
Brennan tweeted: This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent.

The issue was brought up in July by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) who said he would be meeting with Trump about revoking the security clearance of John Brennan, reported TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks.
In a July press briefing, Sarah Sanders named former Obama CIA Director John Brennan, former G.W. Bush CIA Director Michael Hayden, former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice, fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper as people who may have their security clearances revoked.
John Brennan routinely attacks President Trump from his Twitter account and called Trump’s meeting with Putin in Helsinki “treasonous.”
Brennan previously warned the President about Mueller’s investigation saying, “Stay tuned Mr. Trump.”
John Brennan was involved in this attempted coup which is why he’s lashing out on his Twitter account.
In fact, Chairman Nunes is currently investigating whether John Brennan perjured himself in a public testimony about the dossier.
On Monday, Rudy Giuliani told Sean Hannity that John Brennan was the “quarterback” for Spygate and should be in front of a Grand Jury.
