James Comey and John Brennan both reacted to the news that Brennan’s security clearance has been revoked.
Comey’s response is so long that it can only be described as another failed book attempt.
Furthermore, Brennan is repeating John Clapper’s plea that yanking his clearance is a violation of freedom of speech.
Freedom of speech.
First, the revocation of a security clearance: it is NOT suppressing freedom of speech.
Freedom of speech is a right to express your opinion without restraint or fear of retribution. (Continued Below)
A security clearance is not a right, it’s a privilege.
Brennan is more than free to continue to lead CNN into low ratings, and he will do it without the luxury of a national security clearance!
As for Comey, in his book which he flagrantly promoted, is known to have divulged classified information. (Continued Below)
Sara A. Carter, investigative journalist cites, “According to multiple intelligence officials who spoke to SaraACarter.com, the behavior of individuals like Brennan, Comey and former Director of Intelligence James Clapper is damaging to national security and erodes the trust the American people have in their institutions.”
Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey reacted to Brennan’s Security clearance with a novella.
WARNING! You will laugh or find it difficult to read without wondering if Comey has lost his mind!
Once again this President is sending a message that he will punish people who disagree with him and reward whose who praise him. In a democracy, security clearances should not be used s pawns in a petty political game to distract game to distract voters form even bigger problems. This President befriends and praises depots and dictators like Putin and Kim Jong-un. Those friends provide stark contrast to the Patriotic Americans and public servants he disrespects, threatens and calls enemies a war hero john McCain, members of our Country’s free press, and devoted public servants like John Brennan. American voters must not shrug off or be distracted from the terrible behaviors of the President, who lies to the American people every day, encourages racism, is a misogynist, and always puts his own interests above those of the United States of America. Politicians enabling this President should be held accountable in future elections. We are each responsible for what we say as well as for our silence.
Brennan’s reaction is to recite the theme that it is a breach of the freedom of speech, just like his communist pal, James Clapper.
Brennan said, “This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent.”
