Pelosi: Trump revoking Brennan's clearance a 'pathetic attempt to silence critics'
The Hill ^ | 8/15/18 | JUSTIN WISE

Posted on 08/15/2018 5:50:01 PM PDT by Libloather

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday called President Trump's decision to revoke ex-CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance a "pathetic attempt to silence" his critics.

"Revoking the security clearance of an honorable patriot is a stunning abuse of power & a pathetic attempt to silence critics," Pelosi tweeted shortly after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement. "This is yet another disturbing attempt by @realdonaldtrump to distract & divert attention from his Admin's #cultureofcorruption, cronyism & incompetence."

**SNIP**

The decision to revoke Brennan's security clearance was quickly met with backlash from former intelligence officials and Democratic lawmakers.

Clapper said on CNN that Trump was infringing on Brennan's First Amendment rights by taking this action.

I'm pretty sure this is how fake news is invented.

Brennan will be silenced when he is executed for treason.

All the other Obama troglodytes should meet the same fate.

When I left my job at the DIA, I lost all of my clearances.

Why should this asshat get to keep a clearance if he is no longer an employee?

I guess the first amendment gives everybody free access to security briefings.

The woman is an embarrassment for the Democatic party. Keep up the good work Nasty Pelosi.

How many of President Bush’s staff were allowed to keep their security clearances when the Left’s God Obama ascended to power and sat on his throne?

Brennan is going to be jacking his jaws and tweeting his nonsense til the day he finally joins his master. Not to worry, Nan.

It’s not a “pathetic attempt to silence critics”, it’s an outstanding method to punish critics.

They’ve called the President of the United States some of the worst names and description ever .. and she calls this pathetic? If you lefties had done this to obama, he would have been on TV giving h*ll to everyone and all of the rest would have been fired.. He warned constantly on the slightest hint of a word he did not like. He was babied and he still complained.
I have never seen a man take so much as Trump has ... for all the world to see and hear. That’s all they hear and no matter what they say, their ears have heard it.. their brain has absorbed it... and it’s not fair to Trump and it is damaging our country! He is trying to get us back... and they are still trying to destroy.

They’d like to replace this freedom Trump is restoring... our jobs, our homes, our communities.. they’d like to trade it all for socialism!! there is not a brain in any of them.. and they would like to be in charge!!

Let me know if someone organizes a work crew for construction of the gallows. I'm pretty good with hand and power tools.

Always willing to volunteer my time for a good cause, y'know.

‘pathetic attempt to silence’

Silence? Was Brennan planning to disclose government secrets?
