Former CIA Officials Pen Letter Against Brennan Losing Clearance

You can condemn all you want, Former CIA Director John Brennan doesn’t need to know to keep his security clearance.

When Brennan left the U.S. Government, he should have lost his clearance, but the good ole boys decided to allow him to keep it so he could get paid handsomely as a contributor to the news networks. MSNBC picked him at as a paid contributor because of his government access, don’t let that get lost in the fire.

Honestly, I can’t believe all this bitchin’ and moanin’ over this former government worker losing his security clearance. Word on the street is he was sharing a lot of secrets with the opposition media. I can’t confirm that, but I can tell you what I know.

Sixty former CIA officials released a letter Friday evening condemning President Trump’s decision to rescind the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan and said the action was comparable to the White House issuing a “political litmus test” to ensure senior government officials agree with the administration.

“All of us believe it is critical to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure. But we believe equally that former government officials have the right to express their unclassified views on what they see as critical national security issues without fear of being punished for doing so,” the letter, signed by analysts, officers, and other personnel, stated.

“Our signatures below do not necessarily mean that we concur with the opinions expressed by former Director Brennan or the way in which he expressed them,” it continued. “What they do represent, however, is our firm belief that the country will be weakened if there is a political litmus test applied before seasoned experts are allowed to share their views.”

His clearance is gone, and he won’t be seeing it for the foreseeable future, and that’s how it goes.
