Kirsters Baish| Corrupt former National Intelligence Director James Clapper issued a response to the announcement that President Donald Trump was preparing to revoke security clearances of numerous Deep State operatives. He was one of those named, along with Obama’s former CIA Director John Brennan, former G.W. Bush CIA Director Michael Hayden, Obama’s former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, and disgraced former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper issued a response to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ announcement that President Trump would be starting the process to revoke security clearances of multiple Deep State officials.
Clapper described the move to do so a “very very petty thing to do.”
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says President Donald Trump’s consideration of revoking his and several other former national security officials’ security clearances is a “very, very petty thing to do.”
When asked about the process for removing the security clearances of former officials, Clapper said it was within the President’s power to do so.
“There is a formal process for doing this,” Clapper said. “But you know, I guess, legally the President has that prerogative, and he can suspend and revoke clearances as he sees fit. If he chooses to do it for political reasons, I think that’s a terrible precedent, and it’s a really sad commentary and it’s an abuse of the system.”
The Gateway Pundit’s Kristinn Taylor reported that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced during Monday’s press briefing that Trump is currently reviewing the process used to revoke security clearances, so that he can get the process going on multiple Deep State officials for having abused their “post-government retention of security clearances by lying about Trump and Russia, as well as politicizing and monetizing their security clearances.”
On Monday, Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky initially brought up the issue. He explained that he would meet with President Donald Trump and talk about revoking John Brennan’s security clearance, which was reported initially by The Gateway Pundit’s Cassandra Fairbanks.
President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton appeared on Fox to give his take on the matter:
