JOHN BRENNAN losing his Top Secret/Secret security clearance will severely curtail his ability to earn consulting fees. Former top Intel and Law Enforcement officials, often earn significant income through contracts steered their way, by their buddies still in government. Income from giving speeches, and the importance of Brennan's MSNBC role as an informed "expert", are reduced as well. As is often the case, it's all about the $$$.

That's why John Brennan is "considering" taking legal action to have his Security Clearance restored:


Former CIA Director John Brennan told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Friday night that he is considering legal avenues in response to the president’s revocation of his security clearance.

“I think that’s why there’s been such an outcry from many intelligence professions, not to support me, but to support the principle that security clearances are something that’s very solemn and serious and should never ever be used for political purposes,” the former director began.

“As you can imagine, a number of lawyers have reached out to say there is a very strong case here, not so much to reclaim mine but to prevent this from happening in the future. And so, I am thinking about what it is that I might want to do,” Brennan stated.
Excerpted from: dailycaller.com...

But the BIG QUESTION is: Will the legal process of attempting to restore his clearance, shine a bright light on John Brennan's recent, and not so recent, past actions and statements? Is there a "discovery" and "justification" component to this process?

If so, this could be an attempt that Brennan ends up wishing he never started. There are several unsavory, publicly-known things in his past.

If the White House fights the legal action in court, a lot more will come out. Perhaps that's the plan?

He's just blowing smoke. I highly doubt this 'consideration' of his will result in any real action.

John... just go AWAY!

This is a Trump Derangement Syndrome feed tube shot to juggle aloft the mental illness enough to keep it well and alive in those infected.

Brennan is an idiot.

Tell me what jury would rule in his favor?

He was selling his clearance.

Brennan wouldn't go to trial, with a jury and all. It would be an internal court thing (maybe FISA court?), but goodies would leak out.

That's how we ended up with fake dossiers being used as proof to spy on presidential candidates.

Security clearance is not a right. He has no legal case.

Brennan is an idiot.

Legally, to keep his clearance he must publicly act like a current Director. You know, not be partisan.

So ya... he's an idiot.

He probably wants to use it as a reason to start his own Go Fund Me page.
He saw how profitable it is for Strzok.

There are new judges being installed at a record pace. But who knows if Brennan would get an honest one.

Brennan should publish his tax returns so we can make sure he isn't being paid by any derogatory organizations.

Like maybe some side money from the DNC and/or any Democrat PACs like Hillary's.

Of course we would also need a full IRS audit to be sure the tax returns are correct and not tainted.

I'm sure Brennan wouldn't mind.

He could even have Rachel Maddow get first dibs on her show with Lois Lerner as a guest expert.

President Trump is attempting to goad Brennan into legally contesting the revocation. Today labeling Brennan as "political hack", who "cannot be trusted with secrets".

www.foxnews.com...

STRONG WORDS that wouldn't be said unless President Trump has proof to back them up.

Dim Senator Mark Warner ( I have a thread on how CROOKED he is) is introducing an emergency bill to prevent President Trump from "arbitrarily revoking security clearances".

A communist working for our government? And Brennan has the NERVE to say President Trump is a Traitor? Give me a break John!

Based on this wording, I'd say that Brennan is NOT going to try and fight for his security clearance back and just act like he's doing this for the sake of others moving forward. He'd be a fool to try and do this for himself, but he has to act like he's fighting back somehow just to make him appear innocent.

Being punished by President Trump is like a badge of honor for snowflakes, isn't it? Did Omarosa start a GoFundMe account yet?

If Brennan wants to fight the U.S. government, he'll have to open his life's treasure chest. Maybe back to when he used to torture cats for fun.
