Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner on Friday said he plans to present an amendment preventing President Trump from arbitrarily revoking security clearances.
Warners announcement came after Trump earlier this week revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan and hinted Friday that he would soon do the same for Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr.
I will be introducing an amendment next week to block the President from punishing and intimidating his critics by arbitrarily revoking security clearances, Warner tweeted. Stay tuned.

Fine. Revoke security clearances on ALL ex-employees.
Nothing arbitrary about that.
Hey Stupid its separation of power. Someone separated the box from the rocks.
Wouldn’t it easier just to use some political-hack judge to usurp legitimate executive authority?
There is nothing ARBITRARY about Trump’s actions with the clearances. Just more Deep State criminals protecting their own anti-Trumpers. Same old crap.
Who elects fools like this warner creature?
Amen to that!
Mark “Get Me One More Glass of Wine and I Will Tell You Stuff Only Mueller and I Know” Warner.
Warner graduated from George Washington University, (GW), earning his B.A. in 1977 with a 4.0 GPA and a minor in political science. He was valedictorian of his class at GW and the first in his family to graduate from college. At GW he worked on Capitol Hill to pay for his tuition, riding his bike early mornings to the office of U.S. Senator Abraham Ribicoff (D-CT). When his parents visited him at college, he obtained two tickets for them to tour the White House; when his father asked him why he didn't get a ticket for himself, he replied, "I'll see the White House when I'm president."
Oh great! Another demoncrap yankering after the White House.
The president is the final authority as commander-in-chief of the Army and Navy. Warner’s bill would be unconstitutional.
Yeah, so this amendment process...good luck with that. 2/3rds of both houses to propose or get a Constitutional Convention. And then 3/4ths of the state legislatures to ratify.
An Amendment to what, Mark?
A bill? The Constitution?
These people are running scared and it shows.
Revoke his clearance!
Support Free Republic, Folks!
He says amendment, but not amendment to the Constitution.
He didn’t want his lips to burn saying the C word.
I agree. get rid of all security clearances of ex employees and make them reapply when needed for private contract work...
It helps to read the article: “The amendment would be made to the defense appropriations bill”
LOL! That's rich, wonder if he'll try holding his breath.
Lights are on...
I had top secret clearance in the shipbuilding industry during the Reagan buildup. When I left that job, my security clearance was no longer in effect. It’s that simple.
