President Trump caused uproar among Democrats and several pundits of the mainstream media when he decided to pull the security clearance of disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan.
And now that the dust has settled, a new poll conducted between August 22 and 23 proves Trump’s tough decision on Brennan has the backing of majority of Americans. But it gets even juicier! Most Americans think another disgraced official deserves the same karma as Brennan. See Below

Even MORE respondents think Former FBI Director James Comey should have his security clearance revoked! As per the poll, a WHOPPING 64% of respondents want Trump to pull the plug on James Comey’s security clearance.

The poll also shows that 60% of those questioned think any former national security official who wants to be a consultant or contribute to TV programs should have their security clearance revoked.
This would include ex-CIA official Philip Mudd, who often is seen critiquing the President and went ballistic on live TV after Trump supporter, Paris Dennard, suggested he should have his security clearance pulled.

According to Daily Caller, “The Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll is an online survey completed by 1,330 registered voters. The partisan breakdown was 37 percent Democrat, 32 percent Republican, 29 percent independent and 2 percent other.”
Co-Director of the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll concludes from the results, “An overwhelming majority of the public thinks that former officials should lose their security clearance, and believe that former officials like Brennan and Comey should no longer have any clearance.”
Trump is said to be looking into the possibility of revoking other former officials from previous administrations, including James Clapper, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Bruce Ohr, James Comey, Peter Strzok and many more.
And it only makes sense as many of these former officials have openly shown their extreme disdain against President Trump and could be a danger to national security depending on what information they could leak to the press for political purposes. (Video Below)
