Trump connects Russian Federation probe, action on Brennan

But Trump said Wednesday he is reviewing the clearances of several other former top intelligence and law enforcement officials, including former FBI Director Comey and current senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr.

In a statement, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., cited a New York Times op-ed published Thursday, after Brennan's security was revoked, in which Brennan wrote that Trump's claims of no collusion were "hogwash", saying the only remaining questions were whether the collusion amounted to a criminal conspiracy and whether the Trump team obstructed justice in order to cover up the collusion Brennan alleged.

"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", McRaven wrote. Writing in The Washington Post, William H. McRaven said he would "consider it an honour" if Trump would revoke his clearance, as well.

Brennan, who was the Central Intelligence Agency director during the second White House term of former President Barack Obama from 2013 to 2017, said that Trump's claims that "no collusion" occurred between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation "are, in a word, hogwash".

Castro said, "It's a clear abuse of power, and it's a mark of an authoritarian dictator, really, rather than a democratically-elected president of the United States. So, when I see Mr Trump in the oval office not conducting himself the way I think a president should I am going to speak out".

On Thursday's episode of CNN's the Lead, anchor Jake Tapper observed that despite President Donald Trump's antipathy toward what he calls a "rigged witch hunt", the president is inadvertently aiding the Russian Federation probe.

Sen. Susan Collins, Republican from Maine, said she saw no grounds for revoking Brennan's security clearance, "unless there is disclosure of classified information, of which I'm unaware". "Did he just open yet another door for the special counsel?" "I call it the rigged witch hunt, (it) is a sham", Trump said in an interview with the newspaper on Wednesday.

There was no reference to the Russian Federation probe in a White House statement Wednesday that was read at a press briefing and then sent out to reporters.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders calls on a member of the media during the daily press briefing at the White House, Aug. 15, 2018.

He told the Journal he doesn't trust "many of those people on that list" and thinks "they're very duplicitous" and "not good people".

"I'd strip the whole bunch of them", Hannity said. The White House later issued a revised statement with that date removed.
