Former CIA Chief John Brennan had his security clearance revoked by President Donald Trump Wednesday. Brennan has been one of the president’s biggest critics when it comes to matters of national security.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a statement from the president in which the Trump alleged that Brennan was using his access to classified information for personal gain.

Sanders also announced that revocations from other former higher-up law enforcement and intelligence officials’ security clearances are also on the table. The people in question: ex-FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI agent Peter Strzok and ex-FBI Lawyer Lisa Page.

What do all these people have in common? They have all gotten on Trump’s bad side, of course!

    I can’t imagine how you could use a security clearance for personal gain without that being a serious Federal crime. I’ve seen people in the military lose their security clearance because they had a loan out on a car. I’m curious to know what this guy actually did.

    I wonder if he really cares. When you high on the food chain you can always get things done you want to do. I think you have to renew them every so often anyway, I’m sure he won’t lose sleep over it. Big bad T-Rump strikes again!!!ūüėí

      If you lose your security clearance and it’s required for your job, you lose the job also. I’ve seen it happen. It’s not about being a big shot, it’s about a requirement to perform a specific job.

    If you are already out of the job, then you don’t need the clearance so it probably is already gone.
