NBC Reporter: Trump Will Cause ‘Financial’ Harm to Clapper, Brennan by Revoking Security Clearances
Brietbart ^ | 24 July 2018 | Robert Kraychik

NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian suggested Monday that President Donald Trump would hurt the livelihoods of Obama administration alumni by taking away the “valuable commodity” of their security clearances. Dilanian (pictured, bottom center), who covers the intelligence community and national security issues, accused Trump of “seeking to levy a financial penalty” on former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper — both of whom are paid contributors at cable news networks.

Brennan now works for Dilanian’s employer NBC News as an MSNBC analyst. Clapper has since joined CNN in a similar capacity.

He further insinuated that federal employees should consider resisting the order if the president gives it, lambasting Trump for what he called an “extraordinary threat of political retribution.”

But they make their living in the swamp. You don’t expect them to...gasp...get a job where they have to work?

A pox on all their houses.

Do they think that “security clearance” means financial security?

Wouldn’t that prove the fact that Clapper & others are monetizing security information?

They can’t resist it. The president of the United States is the ultimate authority regarding classification and security clearances. There is so much these journalists think they know, yet have no idea about. A degree from Columbia doesn’t make you Alfred Einstein.

They should not be profiting from a security clearance.
Particularly this group of traitors.

I have no problem with these turds experiencing fiscal difficulties for their crimes. It’s a good start.

Robert Mueller has done financial harm to Paul Manafort.

Good luck to us all.
