After Brennan, 9 others face losing security clearances, too
Boston Globe ^ | 8/15/18

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday acted on a threat and revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, citing a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information. Brennan, who served in the Obama administration, had retained his security clearance, as is custom, but had also become an increasingly sharp critic of Trump’s.

Trump says he is reviewing security clearances for nine other individuals: James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr. Some have been publicly critical of the president, while others are linked to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.

Trump calls the investigation a ‘‘witch hunt.’’

A look at the 10 individuals:

Why is anybody no longer employed by the government allowed to keep security clearance. Are they above the rest of us private citizens? Sounds like some sort of special class. Time for them to move on and get on with their lives and stop trying to be our masters.

He is lucky this wasn’t 1945 or he would be offered a cigarette and a blindfold in front of a pockfilled wall.

No clearance, no appearance (cause the Wild West is where I wanna be). Truly, it cuts their cable TV appearances.

Removal of Brennan’s clearance was not petty as former AG Gonzales claimed. It was deserved. Brennan committed treason in orchestrating an attempted coup of the Trump administration. That is why is his clearance was revoked. That is why the others on the list will be revoked. Why doesn’t the MSM report the real reason?

The security clearance poem:

Gone Brennan, when Clapper?, Gone Comey, Screams Trapper
Next Page, When Rice?, President Trump, playing nice
Bye bye Strzok, then Yates? Long tall Sally, Trump they Hates
Next is Brucie, so long Ohr, losing security makes em sore
King Obama, Kenyan Clown, What a mess, America found
Trump will fix it, Press Unfair, Don’t you love his Golden hair!

Of course this doesn’t necessarily stop Brennan’s allies who have clearance from continuing to feed him info, but it does put them in the position of violating the law when they do so, since these “allies” will no longer be able to discuss top secret info with Brennan legally. A lot of info is suddenly going to start drying up and the MSM is going to go begging for dirt. His allies will have to make the choice of risking their careers or to stop associating with Brennan. Hee Hee! A lot of the “hidden swamp” will find themselves isolated and shut down. Any sensitive info that comes into Brennan’s hands now will be easily tracked and more of the “hidden swamp exposed”. Just lovely!

Great picture except they included Jeff Sessions...

Someone should do an animated gif of Trump kicking Magoo out of the boat and into the swamp where he belongs.

As I hear, they keep it for a transition period to help newbies. Either way, it’s time!
