President Donald Trump made a controversial decision on Wednesday to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, who served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency during Barack Obama’s administration.
Army Brigadier General Anthony Tata told Fox news Thursday that ex-director Brennan is “a clear and present danger” to America because he wants to “overthrow” President Donald Trump. “He spied on American citizens and lied in front of Congress about that spying,” the general explains. In fact, democrats have conveniently forgotten how much they hated Brennan, just a few years ago and called his actions “violations of the fourth amendment and laws preventing them from domestic spying.”
“Question 29 on the security clearance form says, you know, ‘have you ever supported overthrowing the U.S. Government?’ All you’ve got to look at are Brennan’s tweets,” he adds. “He supports the removal of this president. That’s enough evidence to get rid of his clearance.”
Senator John Kennedy (R-La) is on record labeling Brennan an embarrassment to the intelligence community for his obvious political bias. “I’ve made my feelings known about Mr. Brennan. I think most Americans look at our national intelligence experts as being above politics,” the senator notes.
“Mr. Brennan has demonstrated that’s not the case. He’s been totally political. I think I called him a [profanity] and I meant it. I think he’s given the national intelligence community a bad name.”
Not only that, newly surfacing evidence indicates that while serving as head of the CIA, Brennan may have helped to engineer a “regime change” of the Trump administration.
He likely brought his political engineering skills into the Russian “collusion” conspiracy between the Clinton campaign, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and other top-ranked Obama officials. Congress is still trying to determine if Barack Obama was in that loop.
President Trump has assembled a list of those he is considering for security clearance revocation. Clearances can be revoked for “cause” which is usually something that could lead to blackmail or bribery incidents like, “alcoholism, financial problems, health concerns or the mishandling of classified material.”
Former FBI Director James Comey and high ranking DOJ official Bruce Ohr are named. “I don’t trust many of those people on that list,” President Trump explained. “I think that they’re very duplicitous. I think they’re not good people.”
Even Brennan’s attorney, Bradley P. Moss, admits the President can legally take the action. “This is the president taking a step that he most likely had the legal authority to take,” he says then flips it his way to point out it hasn’t been done before.
The president cited Brennan’s “unfounded and outrageous allegations” critical of his policies as indicating substantial negative bias. Democrats were quick to call it partisan foul play. Brennan went on the offensive and took out an op-ed, to declare he “won’t be scared into silence.”
There is a reason why Central Intelligence Agency operatives are called “spooks.” They are famous for cloak and dagger “covert” and “clandestine” operations. They’re the guys that get called in when a government overthrow is in the wind.
They work undercover all over the world, blending into the shadows. Everything they do is a lie because if someone were to learn the truth of who they are and what they do, they go home in a box.
Not only that, they have the coolest spy gear on the planet. When you have the kind of power that the CIA has, you don’t have to go through channels to get things done.
Even liberal Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca.) has a story to tell about Brennan to remind the public of his history. In March of 2014, she accused Brennan’s CIA of a whole slew of “cover-ups, intimidation, and smears aimed at investigators” who had the audacity to question their torture methods.
On the floor of the Senate, Feinstein accused “the CIA of potentially violating the U.S. Constitution and of criminal activity in its attempts to obstruct her committee’s investigations into the agency’s use of torture.”
Specifically, Senator Feinstein “confirmed recent reports that CIA officials had been accused of monitoring computer networks used by Senate staff investigators.” Up until then, the rumors that the CIA attempted to “remove documents from the network detailing evidence of torture that would incriminate intelligence officers” were unsubstantiated.
Brennan pushed back by saying claims they “monitored” the Senate committee computer networks were ridiculous. They set the system up intentionally to share their documents with the committee so they already had full control of the system. It is always monitored.
Feinstein was hopping mad, the CIA reported the committee to the DOJ for possible criminal charges. “The two investigations, launched at the behest of the CIA, amounted to an attempt at ‘intimidation.’” She called what they did “violations of the fourth amendment and laws preventing them from domestic spying.”
Senator Mark Udall (D-Co.) backed her up. He applauded Feinstein for “setting the record straight today on the Senate floor about the CIA’s actions to subvert congressional oversight.”
“Unfortunately,” he continued, “the CIA responded by trying to hide the truth from the American people about this program and undermine the Senate intelligence committee’s oversight role by illegally searching committee computers.”
