I had a TS most of my career, and a TS is active for 10 years unless revoked. In fact, I got my TS renewed just before I retired as it is attractive to lots of employers. So, do we know for sure their clearances have been revoked?????


No...we dont know for sure about any of them.

I'd trust what the WH knows before any "unnamed sources".

I had mine for a while as well and they dont just go away when you leave a job...as far as I know they dont even when fired unless there was some extenuating circumstances that called for it.

A Top Secret is good for 10 years. It gives you access just to the stuff that you are cleared to see. I had a TS, but it did not mean I could access Nuclear codes. It meant I could only see or work on very specific things related to my job. It can be revoked for criminal behavior, but normally it is good until it expires, or it gets renewed.

Having a clearance doesn't mean your privileged to information that's usually on a need-to-know basis as well

If fact, Comey and Rice should be immediately prosecuted - they both signed off on the VERIFICATION of sources for the FISA warrant.

The sources were never verified - Steele is NOT a source - he's a PURVEYOR - the sources for the dossier contents are anonymous.

May the gates of hell be unleashed upon all their asses.......

Exactly.

You have the clearance but also need to be cleared to be involved. The clearance just means your background was clean enough that they trust you for the most part.

I believe a "sponsored clearance" can be revoked by the sponsor company though. Not sure if this applies here or not as I dont know how the Intel agencies handle their clearances.

As far as I know, they keep them unless specifically revoked.

If they were getting access to updated info after they left, then whoever was giving them info would be in serious doo-doo, as well as whoever received said info. You cannot possess or give out info to anyone who hasn't been read int a particular job.

Well, he's already had Russian prostitutes urinate on the bed the Obama's slept in. What next? Send one of his misguided suck-ups out to cut his tires? Put chewing gum in Michelle's hair? I wonder why he never developed emotionally? hm. Daddy issues I guess.

And yes. Donald Trump is the President. We elected Donald Trump. He is the POTUS.
Donald Trump. Manhattan playboy, petty mobster, king of bankruptcies, and not paying his bills. A man who can barely construct a literate, coherent sentence, and has never read a book. Yep. Sho is.

Correct. Even if you have the required clearance, if you don't have a need to know because you're not involved in whatever project the information belongs to, you have no right to said material. It's not like on TV where you get to be like "I have top secret clearance, show me what you got". It doesn't work like that. So for example Clapper, who is no longer involved with the CIA in an official capacity, has no need to know anything even though his clearance is still active. Anyone that has been passing him classified info is subject to prosecution.

Could you use it outside of your official capacities?
