Yes indeedy.  Tell the truth about Trump and lose your security clearance. He does have the authority to do that.  Shows him as petty and scared.  Wonder what he is scared OF? (Oh come on. We all know the answer to that)

just another flagrant abuse of power that we have come to expect from the Dictator in Chief. Many of the people he intends to revoke their clearance just happen to be witnesses in the Russia probe as well. Trump is starting to feel the fire burning at his feet from Mueller closing in, so he is lashing out at his critics. Flagrant abuse of power!

Putin Style Authoritarianism - GOP Radicals in Congress Concur

 

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump is considering stripping a half-dozen former national security officials of their security clearances, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday, calling their public commentary about the ongoing Russia probe inappropriate.

Such a move would amount to an unprecedented use of presidential authority to punish political rivals. Critics quickly seized on the announcement, even as those under consideration downplayed the actual effect losing their clearances might have.
The list of former officials under consideration includes former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, former national security adviser Susan Rice, former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden, according to Sanders.
"They've politicized, and in some cases, monetized their public service," Sanders said during a press briefing. "Making baseless accusations of an improper relationship with Russia is inappropriate."
 
 
Sanders would not say when the President would make the decision; she said only that the White House would provide updates when it had them.
Two officials on her list -- Comey and McCabe -- no longer have security clearances, people familiar with the matter said.
