What a difference in the approach in the two current threads on this, one presents information, lists possible issues with this and asks for views and concerns. This one immediately lackeys itself with the decision, throws names around calling people mental and has no issue with the unprecedented act.

What Trump Youth here doesn't realize is that this is so irregular it will just draw more attention to an already shady administration and an ongoing investigation.

All just nails in the coffin.

So basically just like trump.



At least Trump wasn't a Communist!


"Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party of the United States?"


Nope! Nothing more that a red blooded, red neck Murican who lived most of my life in flyover country! Hell, even served my country.


This is like 1947 all over again.


Believe it or not I actually learned to read! My favorite book was by this guy named George Orwell, called "1984". My favorite! Also loved Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World!

Hell! I am smarter than I thought! I can write too! Woo Hooo

I'm beginning to think Trump doesn't actually like doing his job.

Brennan retired for Christ sakes.

And , your point ?
Methinks there was none.
No , Brennan did not retire for Christ's sake. Maybe Satan's ?
He retired as he saw the writing on the wall
You get terminated , and there is no retirement

In case no one has posted this yet. A flashback, courtesy of Q.

Brennan was forced to apologize to U.S. Senators, after admitting that his CIA was SPYING on them.

Trump - Full statement on revoking John Brennan's security clearance


As the head of the executive branch and Commander in Chief, I have a unique, Constitutional responsibility to protect the Nation’s classified information, including by controlling access to it. Today, in fulfilling that responsibility, I have decided to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Historically, former heads of intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been allowed to retain access to classified information after their Government service so that they can consult with their successors regarding matters about which they may have special insights and as a professional courtesy.

Neither of these justifications supports Mr. Brennan’s continued access to classified information. First, at this point in my Administration, any benefits that senior officials might glean from consultations with Mr. Brennan are now outweighed by the risks posed by his erratic conduct and behavior. Second, that conduct and behavior has tested and far exceeded the limits of any professional courtesy that may have been due to him.

Mr. Brennan has a history that calls into question his objectivity and credibility. In 2014, for example, he denied to Congress that CIA officials under his supervision had improperly accessed the computer files of congressional staffers. He told the Council of Foreign Relations that the CIA would never do such a thing. The CIA’s Inspector General, however, contradicted Mr. Brennan directly, concluding unequivocally that agency officials had indeed improperly accessed congressional staffers’ files. More recently, Mr. Brennan told Congress that the intelligence community did not make use of the so-called Steele Dossier in an assessment regarding the 2016 election, an assertion contradicted by at least two other senior officials in the intelligence community and all of the facts.

Additionally, Mr. Brennan has recently leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official with access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations – wild outbursts on the internet and television – about this Administration. Mr. Brennan’s lying and recent conduct, characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary, is wholly inconsistent with access to the Nation’s most closely held secrets and facilitates the very aim of our adversaries, which is to sow division and chaos.

More broadly, the issue of Mr. Brennan’s security clearance raises larger questions about the practice of former officials maintaining access to our Nation’s most sensitive secrets long after their time in Government has ended. Such access is particularly inappropriate when former officials have transitioned into highly partisan positions and seek to use real or perceived access to sensitive information to validate their political attacks. Any access granted to our Nation’s secrets should be in furtherance of national, not personal, interests. For this reason, I have also begun to review the more general question of the access to classified information by former Government officials.

As part of this review, I am evaluating action with respect to the following individuals: James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr. Security clearances for those who still have them may be revoked, and those who have already their lost their security clearance may not be able to have it reinstated.

It is for the foregoing reasons that I have exercised my Constitutional authority to deny Mr. Brennan access to classified information, and I will direct appropriate staff of the National Security Council to make the necessary arrangements with the appropriate agencies to implement this determination.

Thank-you for posting that! Some of those individuals will be EASY to justify Security Clearance revocation, like Strzok and Page. Susan Rice will be harder. The next installment of the Spygate IG Report will make it much easier, however.

I have an issue with you so called " Trump Youth" statement...its utter rubbish.

Those of us that served, worked our arses off and cared for our neighbor in the pre internet world of beer muscled key board jockeys...dont want to just give away our good sense and decades of efforts to vociferous basement dwellers to squander away.

Your politicians just pay you lip service, and pocket money, they dont care about building, just profit, at all costs.

America made the free world, and it looks like the dirtbags running it are going to destroy the free world from America too.

Trump, with all his failings, still gets that, thats why he has our support, not because we are racists, war mongers or anything else.

Now when he opens his big flytrap and doles out some classified stuff, he will be whittled down to a twig.

He is a bitter and jealous maniac.

Very dangerous.

Watch for him to come up with some real whoppers and get burned to a crisp

I don't know why Sarah Sanders didn't include former Attorney General LORETTA LYNCH on the list of those having their clearances reviewed. She called for rioting and blood in the streets, after Hillary lost. That makes her even more unstable than Brennan.

Gosh darn Paul. You gotta keep up with QAnon bud. He's laid out Trump's entire plan against the deepstate.

To the world that is the description of trump.
What did he say.. for lying and crazed ranting ?

That's just too much ya know.

Brennan says "No collusion? Hogwash!"
And he would know.
Trumps afraid right now. He's very worried his son is going to be next on Muellers hit list.
He's terrified what Michael Cohen has and he's terrified what Omorosa may have on the administration.
He knows what he did. He knows what they did and his utter desperation is glaringly obvious.
