Defense Secretary Jim Mattis Gives Brennan Dose Of Reality On Revoking Security Clearance

Former Obama CIA Director John Brennan didn’t hide his unsatisfaction about President Trump’s decision to revoke his security clearance earlier this week.

He responded by saying: “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.”

Brennan added: “My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent.”

The former Obama CIA Director John Brennan is acting like an immature child.

Luckily, on Friday defense Secretary Jim Mattis expressed solidarity with President Trump’s decision of stripping Brennan’s security clearance.

Mattis said: “All I can tell you is, I have taken security clearances away from people in my previous time in uniform, and a security clearance is something that is granted on an as-needed basis.”

Here you have it… Security clearances should be as Defense Secretary Mattis says, “as needed”. The whole issue of security clearance wasn’t a problem until John Brennan made it an issue by abusing the “privilege”.

Continued clearance after leaving service is a courtesy, not a guarantee. If someone abused it, courtesy will be revolved. Brennan did the WRONG thing when you tried to undermine the WILL of the American People in a presidential election. No former director has acted in your vindictive spiteful manner. There are punishments for that. I pray this is just the beginning.

Plus, “Former” is the keyword. If you don’t currently hold a Federal position, your adjudication is revoked. That’s in all Federal branches. So, there is no reason for Brennan to still has his clearance EXCEPT to continue to harass or release info he shouldn’t!
