This week, President Donald Trump once again outraged liberals by revoking the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan. Quick to attack the Commander in Chief, liberals took to social media to defend the former spy. But one famous patriot, who was praised by Trump, took them to task.
It’s common practice for former heads of government agencies to stay involved, even after they leave their post. The idea is that they have something to offer incoming leaders. That’s all well and good when the officials are decent, hard-working people. But this is the D.C. swamp we’re talking about.
The outgoing administration’s officials were hardly excited to see Donald Trump take over. Barack Obama’s appointees were career politicians. Many of them were far-left lawyers who got the jobs thanks to favors owed to the party. They were in it for the prestige and power that their seats afforded them. Few appeared do work out of a sense of duty or loyalty to the country.
You just have to look at former FBI Director James Comey’s actions to see the caliber of the people Obama worked with.
But much worse than Comey is former CIA Director John Brennan. Since being fired by incoming President Trump, Brennan has not stopped attack him online. This former CIA leader has used Twitter as his virtual soapbox. He has slandered the Commander in Chief nonstop since the election. His comments and attacks are downright shocking and completely inappropriate for a former public servant.
Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

Your fear of exposure is palpable. Your desperation even more so. When will those of conscience among your Cabinet, inner circle, and Republican leadership realize that your unprincipled and unethical behavior as well as your incompetence are seriously damaging our Nation. https://t.co/n6ivjOYxzo

Today, Donald Trump simultaneously lied about the Iranian nuclear deal, undermined global confidence in US commitments, alienated our closest allies, strengthened Iranian hawks, & gave North Korea more reason to keep its nukes. This madness is a danger to our national security.

His Twitter account is dedicated to complaining about the current administration. Instead of offering his advice, insight, and experience to the White House, Brennan criticizes it to anyone who will listen. That’s pretty pathetic, in and of itself. But his attacks are the same weak and tired insults the Democrats and MSM have been throwing at Trump from day one. They are nothing but empty and pathetic lies.
It came as no surprise that President Trump would finally put an end to Brennan’s access to our most sensitive information.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders read a statement from President Donald Trump Wednesday announcing that the administration is revoking former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance…
“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…
Mr. Brennan has a history that calls in to question his objectivity and credibility…
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 facilities, the very aim of our adversaries which is to sow division and chaos.” [Source: Breitbart]
President Trump was completely justified in revoking this man’s clearance. Brennan has done nothing but slander the Trump administration. Why should he continue to gain access to our government’s intelligence?
Any president would be in their rights to do so. President Trump has the final authority to revoke Brennan’s clearance. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t amount to much. Not if you ask liberals, though.
As if everything Trump does, Democrats melted down over this move. They attacked the president while trying to prop up John Brennan. It’s like liberals don’t even think anymore. All they know to do is complain.
John Brennan's public service:
-CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia
-CIA chief of staff
-Director of Terrorist Threat Integration Center
-Director of National Counter terrorism Center
-White House Homeland Security Adviser
-Briefed three presidents

Impressive, right? That whole Director of Terrorist Threat Integration Center sounds super important and stuff. Who knew we had a whole center for terrorist threat integration, whatever the Hell that is.
That being said, seems Philip left out a few pesky details when it comes to Brennan and his public service. Luckily, Dan Bongino was there to fill in the blanks. [Source: Twitchy]
John Brennan’s other “public service”:
-Using foreign intelligence connections to provide intel on an opposition campaign
-Spying on Hill communications to advance Obama’s political agenda.
-Lying about his spying under oath
-Pushing the collusion hoax despite no evidence. https://t.co/rf1XSe6wEI

John Brennan did serve in government for many years. But that doesn’t give him a blank check to say or do whatever he wants.
In fact, the longer a person serves in public office, the more you should be worried. Our government was crafted so that people can serve for a limited time. The Founding Fathers looked at it as a duty to be handed off when the time came. That’s why George Washington served only two terms.
But Congressmen and government officials will often stick around for decades. It’s a red flag; we should be worried about how much power these people are acquiring. It doesn’t take long for a person to become corrupt.
The president himself exposed just a few times Brennan revealed that he was dishonest about his job.
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 on 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.

Dan Bongino exposed the fact that it was John Brennan who helped kickstart the Russian hoax. This witch hunt that seeks to brand Donald Trump as an “illegitimate” president was a scheme cooked up by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. It was helped largely by the corrupt Brennan.
Trump celebrated Bongino’s insight into the crooked Brennan.
“John Brennan is a stain on the Country, we deserve better than this.” Former Secret Service Agent and author of new book, “Spygate, the Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump,” Dan Bongino. Thank you Dan, and good luck with the book!

So as the left continues to whine about poor John Brennan, be sure to show them this.
