During a Monday interview on Fox News, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul stated the obvious and said that the United States will be safer now that former CIA chief John Brennan no longer has a security clearance. Sen. Paul expressed solidarity with President Trump’s decision of stripping Brennan’s security clearance.
“I think John Brennan’s actually a national security risk to the country and we are safer because his security clearance’s gone,” Paul said. “The reason I say that is in 2012 he actually released information to other CIA agents who went on TV and said, ‘oh, we have a double agent in Yemen.’”
“Their life was put at risk because of John Brennan’s releasing information that he shouldn’t have,” Paul explained.
Paul also brought up the fact that Brennan lied to a committee about investigating Democrats’ computers and asserted that Brennan should have been fired “long ago.”
“He shouldn’t be within a mile of classified information because he’s a national security risk — he doesn’t know how to keep his mouth shut,” Paul concluded.

Continued clearance after leaving service is a courtesy, not a guarantee. If someone abused it, courtesy will be revolved. Brennan 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. Brennan opened a Pandora’s box and now his credibility and future as a Trump-bashing commentator on CNN and MSNBC will crater.
And I pray this is just the beginning. Just think how much safer we will be when the security clearances are revoked from the entire swamp of rats!!
