Breaking: President Trump Considering Revoking Key Obama Officials Security Clearance

Top Security Clearances  May Be Revoked

A bombshell revelation was unveiled by Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the press briefing on Monday. A list of former Obama officials who could lose access to classified information includes former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former CIA Director Michael Hayden.

NEW: Press Sec. Sanders says Pres. Trump “looking to take away” security clearances of high-profile Obama era officials and Trump critics:

• Former CIA Dir. Brennan
• Former FBI Dir. Comey
• Former DNI Clapper
• Former NSA Dir. Hayden
• Former National Security Adviser Rice

This potential move has caused quite a stir on the left as opponents voiced their disapproval on Twitter. Actor/director Rob Reiner, who has been a key figure in the Democratic Party “resistance” against Trump said via his Twitter account that the United States is “taking a big step towards autocracy.”

We’ve just taken another big step towards Autocracy. An illegitimate President just threatened to remove security clearances from John Brennan, James Clapper & Michael Hayden for being patriots who are critical of a POTUS hell bent on destroying Democracy. Save the US. VOTE!!!

Putting a Stop to It

The move to revoke the security clearance of Brennan was championed by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who expressed his fear Brennan and others are using their security clearances as vehicles to enrich themselves monetarily via mainstream media appearances.

Just got out of WH meeting with @realDonaldTrump. I restated to him what I have said in public: John Brennan and others partisans should have their security clearances revoked.

Sanders also spoke during the press briefing about how former Obama officials have "politicized" or "monetized" their public service. “When you have the highest level of security clearance … when you have the nation’s secrets at hand, and go out and make false [commentary], the president feels that’s something to be very concerned with,” Sanders said.

Panic on the Left

Brennan, Clapper, and others have been regular contributors on liberal-leaning mainstream media “news” shows. Brennan was recently on MSNBC and NBC News. Comey urged Democratic voters on Twitter this past weekend to abandon socialism.

Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left. This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership.
— James Comey (@Comey) July 23, 2018 

Comey and other former Obama officials could soon find themselves under the glare of congressional inquiry. Prominent Republicans would like Brennan and others to testify on Capitol Hill regarding the investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 presidential election.

  1. This is just tip of the iceberg. Much more to come in the next two months.

  2. Remove ALL the clearances of former employees!

  3. Just a small part of the job ahead of us which is to remove all Globalists, Progressives and Liberals from positions of power and influence. In addition, to dry up the source of the corruption and infiltration of traitorous subversives and criminals into our government, we must extricate ourselves from the Central Banking System which in the USA is the FED

  4. What is the reason it's taking so long? This should be the norm. Especially when the ones considered are working with a coup to undermine an duly elected president!
