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

I'm pretty sure this is how fake news is invented.
Trump is not silencing him at all, Brennan can talk all he wants.
A ragtag group of misfits lamenting their loss of power over the little people.
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?
Does this make sense to anyone without Trump Derangement Syndrome?
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.
She should go back to ruling over her Samoan slaves before something bad happens.
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi is simply pathetic.
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?
A Nuremberg style trial would be nice.
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!!
I love the sound of misfits lamenting in the morning. 😁
Always willing to volunteer my time for a good cause, y'know.
Riiight... this evil old cootie had none other than Peter what’s-his-name standing behind her as she spoke...
‘pathetic attempt to silence’
Silence? Was Brennan planning to disclose government secrets?
It’s ponch on yer nose beeoth.
Don’t take it to personal since he hit Brennan.
