Trump Pats Himself On The Back For Yanking Brennan's Security Clearance

Trump defended his move on Brennan on Wednesday, saying it had elevated the former Central Intelligence Agency chief rather than hampered his freedom of speech.

"Mr. Mueller has a lot of conflicts also, directly himself", Trump said. Trump has denied any collusion and Russian Federation has said it did not meddle in the election. And that's been followed by another statement signed by 60 other former intelligence officials critical of the president's move.

President Donald Trump says he expects to "quickly" revoke the security clearance for the Justice Department official whose wife worked for the firm involved in producing the dossier on Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

Senator Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia, announced Friday on Twitter that he planned to introduce an amendment "to block the president from punishing and intimidating his critics by arbitrarily revoking security clearances".

"There's no silence. If anything, I'm giving them a bigger voice", Trump said. To make matters much worse, not just Edward Snowden but an NSA/CIA/FBI contractor whistleblower client I once represented revealed to a number of so-called government authorities that Brennan, along with James Clapper, were the primary persons who authorized and then carried out mass surveillance by the CIA and NSA, also with FBI involvement, against hundreds of millions of American citizens.

I think Bruce Ohr is a disgrace. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don't know him.

She also received money from endorsements of products including Coca-Cola Co's Smartwater brand and Johnson & Johnson's Aveeno . The number quadruples her 2017 earnings as she starred in The Avengers: Infinity War and filmed Avengers 4 for Marvel.

Brennan accused Trump of committing treason, which Tucker Carlson previously noted on Fox News is a capital offense.

President Trump said today at the White House he's actually doing the opposite. Bruce Ohr may be his next target. I suspect I'll be taking [his security clearance] away very quickly.

Ohr works in the Justice Department's criminal division. All of them have either sharply criticized Trump or are in the crosshairs of the president's congressional allies as they seek to cast doubt on the special counsel probe led by Robert Mueller III. Trump fired Comey previous year. "We did nothing. There's no collusion".

"I call it the rigged witch hunt, (it) is a sham", Trump was quoted as saying in the interview.

Mr Trump on Wednesday openly tied his decision to strip Mr Brennan of his clearance - and threaten almost a dozen other former and current officials - to the ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with his campaign.

According to the Post, a White House official acknowledged that the revocation of Brennan's clearance had been prepared in July, but was released this week to distract attention from media coverage of the former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman's scathing memoir about her time at the White House.
