Brennan testifies Der Trumper is trying to undermine the Justice system.

Everything Brennan said is true, but he also pointed out the Der Trumper was a clear and present danger to our entire form of Government and had no idea what he was doing. https://www.brennancenter.org/analysis/his-own-words-presidents-attacks-courts

 

So Der Trumper removes Brennan's ability to work for contractors working for the Federal Government, a new form of Blackballing which was first made popular by Republican Joe McCarthy in the 1950's.

 

Strangely, the dupes who have had THEIR paychecks ravaged by Republican tax policy are the most virilent supporters of Der Trumper's petulant and childish response to valid criticism. Is this another "misery loves company, so lets make everyone miserable"  mime the Republican base has been given by their GOPerLords?

NOTHAPPENING:  Why should anyone retain their security clearance once they quit, retire, or fired?

 

 

You really don't know why? Because many of these people have years of experience with most situations being faced by current intel people.....in other words, they bring great expertise and are an invaluable aid to the people that replaced them. Much like a neurosurgeon might seek advice from a recently retired colleague to get every advantage he can get. Trump's latest hissy fit could harm national security.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also read a list Wednesday of other former law enforcement, national security and intelligence officials, all noted critics of the president, whose security clearances may be at risk as well.

 

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has decided to revoke former CIA Director John Brennan's clearance for access to classified information, he said in a statement read by press secretary Sarah Sanders Wednesday.

The courtesy of allowing a former administration official to retain security clearance has been "outweighed by the risk posed by his erratic conduct and behavior," Trump said in the statement. "Mr. Brennan has a history that calls into question his objectivity and credibility..."

 
 

"Mr. Brennan has recently leveraged his status ... to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations, wild outbursts on the internet and on television, about this administration," he added.

 

Who thinks any one of them cares?

As looney as some of the things Brennan has said it's better not to trust him with a clearance.  But who cares?  Well, probably Brennan.  That security clearance can be worth a lot of money consulting with companies like defense contractors, which is why people want to keep them.

Why - Because the US Government used to be a place that was steeped in Tradition - it was a place where those who served their Country Honorably for Decades were Honored after they left Service with a few Perks like keeping their Security Clearances.................this ac tion by Trump is pure Swamp Politics

 

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who was on a list of officials whose statuses were being reviewed by Trump, told CNN that it was “unprecedented” for the White House, as opposed to an agency itself, to pull clearance.

 

Michael Hayden, who ran the National Security Agency under Bill Clinton and George W. Bush and the CIA under Bush, told CNN that he hadn’t gotten a briefing from the CIA in nine years since leaving that job. “With regard to the implied threat today that I could lose my clearance, that will have no impact on what I think, say, or write,” he added.

Never had a clearance I see.

 

You keep your clearance when you CHANGE JOBS. Since Republicans have been driving to Privatize the Civil Service, there's a boodle of jobs requiring a clearance that do NOT involve working for the Government. It's a very expensive proposition to get a TS clearance, and it's going to be tax dollars that pay for it, so letting Government people with a clearance keep it FOR A WHILE when they leave Gov't service makes good economic sense IF they get a contractor job needing a clearance. That would include a bunch of the people lil donny soggydrawers and his peanut gallery are whimpering about.

 

Now let's consider "access" to TS material - that means you have a job that REQUIRES you to see the classified information. If you have no such job, your clearance will lapse automatically, and if somebody gives you classified info that is NOT part of your current job or after it's lapsed, you will both attend the Long Course at Levenworth.
