Continued clearance after leaving service is a courtesy, not a guarantee. If someone abused it, courtesy will be revolved.
During Wednesday’s press briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced President Trump revoked 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.”
Brennan lost his clearance because he was part of a conspiracy to defraud the American people, interfere in an election and frame a Presidential candidate. That was more than obvious.
However, former Obama CIA Director is not satisfied with Trump’s decision, so he responded saying: “This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out.”
Brennan added: “My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent.”

He’ll relent when he’s in prison!
No, Mr. Brennan… Our President did the right thing today. You did the WRONG thing when you tried to undermine the WILL of the American People in a presidential election. No former director has acted in your vindictive spiteful manner. There are punishments for that. I pray this is just the beginning.
Plus, “Former” is the keyword. If you don’t currently hold a Federal position, your adjudication is revoked. That’s in all Federal branches. So, there is no reason for Brennan to still has his clearance EXCEPT to continue to harass or release info he shouldn’t!
