I think it’s safe to say that Senator Rand Paul has no love for former CIA Director John Brennan. Back in August of 2018, an order was given by President Trump to have Brennan’s security clearance revoked. According to the New York
“This is what worries me. People talk about the deep state now the deep state is actually protecting their own and not listening to the president’s orders. I was sitting in the White House when President Trump said I want his security clearance taken, and I saw the order given.
“I saw the chief of staff was there, not the current chief of staff, the previous chief of staff and if their working against odds of our President that really does to disrupt our country, does disrupt our representative democracy where the President makes a decision.
“If someone is countermanding that, I think we need to get to the bottom of that. I hope President Trump will say who was countermanding my orders. I said get rid of his clearance and I do think that Brennan has been a partisan. And I think Brennan abused his office in developing the Trump investigation. I think it was done under false pretenses and done for political reasons.”
I think that Brennan has no business having a security clearance. It needs to be revoked right away! Also, there needs to be an investigation to find out why the President’s orders were not followed. CNN Newsroom tweeted about the interview.
“People talk about the deep state, now the deep state’s actually protecting their own,” says Sen. @RandPaul on ex-CIA Dir. John Brennan keeping his security clearance. “I was sitting in the White House when President Trump said I want his security clearance taken.”
Today, Senator Paul took to his Twitter account to blast the former Director by tweeting,
“Disgraceful, extent to which the deep state will go to protect their own. I was in the Oval Office w/@realDonaldTrump when he directed officials to revoke John Brennan’s security clearance. A partisan hack & mouthpiece for the media has no business holding a clearance.Revoke now!”
Spot on, Senator Paul! Do you think Brennan’s a partisan hack? Do you think there should be an investigation as to why his clearance was not revoked? Leave a comment and let us know.
