Citing John Brennan’s “erratic conduct and behavior,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced in a briefing yesterday that President Donald Trump had stripped the former CIA director of his security clearance. Brennan — a fierce Trump critic who led the agency through most of President Barack Obama’s second term — tweeted that the move was “part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics.” Trump says he’s also reviewing the security clearances of nine other officials and staff, including ousted FBI Director James Comey.
