Following the former CIA Director John Brennan’s erratic behaviour when calling for the death penalty on Donald Trump, the ex-deep state operative reacted to Trump’s removal of his security clearance by considering legal action against the President.
Brennan told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that he is now considering legal action in response to the president’s revocation of his security clearance.“I think that’s why there’s been such an outcry from many intelligence professions, not to support me, but to support the principle that security clearances are something that’s very solemn and serious and should never ever be used for political purposes,” the former director began.
“As you can imagine, a number of lawyers have reached out to say there is a very strong case here, not so much to reclaim mine but to prevent this from happening in the future.”And so, I am thinking about what it is that I might want to do,” Brennan stated.
“At this time, I’m trying to make sure that the principle is what is going to be defended and supported and this is something that should not be repeated,” he continued.“The other people on the so-called enemy’s list now, I think this is just another example of Mr. Trump trying to frighten and intimidate others.”
President Donald Trump has removed the security clearance from former CIA Director John Brennan for “lying and erratic conduct.”Many CIA chiefs are able to keep their access to classified information after leaving office “so that they can consult with their successors regarding matters about which they may have special insight and as a professional courtesy,” Trump said.
