The former CIA director under Barack Obama, John Brennan had his security clearance revoked today by the White House. The Prsident’s full statement is available at FOX News. House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders read a statement to the press that included the following:
Brennan “has a history that calls his credibility into question.” …
… Brennan had been “leveraging” the clearance to make “wild outbursts” and claims against the Trump administration in the media.
“The president has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information and who has access to it, and that’s what he’s doing is fulfilling that responsibility in this action.”
Others have been placed on a list for consideration to remove their security clearances: “…former FBI director James Comey; former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe; former director of national intelligence James Clapper; former national security adviser Susan Rice and former CIA director Michael Hayden.”
Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, former FBI agent Peter Strzok (who was fired from the bureau last week) and former FBI general counsel Lisa Page were added to the list on Wednesday.
