The sheer adversity that Donald Trump has been forced to face during his fledgling presidency is unprecedented, both in its scope, but also in its fervor, fanaticism, and ferocity.
This is thanks to the pedantic “resistance”, and their insinuation that Donald Trump is inherently evil, like the emperor in Star Wars, or Adolf Hitler. This is simply due to the fact the Donald Trump is not Hillary Clinton – the mistaken heir apparent to former President Barack Obama, and one of the most incredibly corrupt career politicians that the American government has ever had the displeasure of employing.
Given just how furious the liberal left has been during these last 19 or so months of the Trump Era, it’s no surprise that the current administration has been having some difficulty keep a tight wrap on information coming and going from the White House. Plagued by leaks to the press, Trump himself has taken a firm stance on informational security, with several members of the administration already finding themselves unemployed due to their likely collaboration with uncouth and undermine-minded journalists.
Now, in an effort to continue battening down the hatches, President Trump is considering revoking the security clearances of several Obama-era officials.
President Donald Trump is considering revoking the security clearances from former intelligence officials who served under former President Barack Obama, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
“Not only is the president looking to take away Brennan’s security clearance, he’s also looking into the clearances of Comey, Clapper, Hayden, Rice, and McCabe,” Sanders said during the White House press briefing.
The list features prominent critics of the Obama administration who had access to top-secret intelligence. Sanders said that the president was concerned that former officials were politicizing their institutional knowledge from the country’s top intelligence agencies.
For many within the White House team, these revocations cannot some soon enough.
Brennan has caught flak from the political right after Kentucky Senator Rand Paul accused the former intelligence czar of “monetizing” his security clearance in leaks to the press.
