12 former intelligence chiefs release a statement on Trump revoking Brennan clearance
Twelve former intelligence chiefs signed and released a public letter protesting the decision by President Donald Trump to revoke the security clearance of former FBI Director John Brennan, who has been very critical of the president.
“Ill-considered and unprecedented”
“We feel compelled to respond in the wake of the ill-considered and unprecedented remarks and actions by the White House,” the letter said. “We know John to be an enormously talented, capable and patriotic individual who devoted his entire adult life to the service of this nation.”
“Insinuations and allegations of wrongdoing on the part of Brennan while in office are baseless,” it continued. “Since leaving government service, John has chosen to speak out sharply regarding what he sees as threats to our national security.”
“[W]e all agree that the president’s action regarding John Brennan and the threats of similar action against other former officials has nothing to do with who should and should not hold security clearance – and everything to do with an attempt to stifle free speech,” they added.
The contention that Trump was shutting down free speech mirrored that of former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who said Wednesday that the decision violated Brennan’s First Amendment right of free speech. Clapper was also one of the signatories.
Here’s the list of the former officials who signed the letter of protest:
3 former Directors of Central Intelligence:
3 former CIA directors:
Gen. Michael Hayden
Gen. David Petraeus
A former director of national intelligence:
4 former deputy CIA directors:
“He’s disgraced and discredited himself”
Reports indicate that the president is eager to revoke the security clearances of other officials over their statements opposing his administration and his policies.
Trump tweeted Thursday a quote from Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch which read, “Brennan has gone off the deep end, he’s disgraced and discredited himself. His conduct has been outrageous.”
Now let me ask you a question or two.
First off, exactly what in the fuck does having a security clearance have to do with your First Amendment protections?
Secondly, why would someone who currently has no official connection to the government have or need a security clearance in the first place?
For example, why does Hillary Fucking Clinton still have a security clearance?
It is a proven fact that she has broken multiple laws concerning the handling of communications DIRECTLY affecting the security of this nation.
The former heads of the CIA talking shit here is especially egregious and galling.
Third, do you see somewhat of a pattern in this mass protest over Brennan getting his clearance yanked?
I sure as fuck do.
These people are exposing themselves in broad daylight.
This is the Deep State people and they are pissed off because one of their main players got his ass spanked very publicly.
Allow me to let you in on a little secret.
They are scared shitless.
Trump has the goods on these motherfuckers and they know it.
Watch the ones that howl the loudest.
Brennan in particular has been extremely vocal in his verbal attacks on Trump.
I would be extremely surprised if more of these former administration flunkies don’t find themselves getting their security clearances yanked here in the near future also.
Let me put it to you this way.
When you leave an employer for any reason, do they allow you to keep the keys to the front door?
Why do you think that is?
Why would you expect to keep your security clearance and have access to sensitive intelligence if you no longer held a position in government service?
Especially when it has been discovered that the administration you were a part of has been discovered to be a giant criminal enterprise?
Shit is happening behind the scenes folks. there is a huge battle going on and these occasional outbursts by these people that gets carried by a very complicit media is a sure way to tell when Trump has gotten in a good shot on them.
