WH: Trump Looking to Revoke Security Clearances From Brennan, Comey, Clapper

The president is "exploring the mechanisms" to take away security clearances from those who monetize their access.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Monday that President Trump is considering pulling security clearances from a number of Obama administration officials.

Sanders listed former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director Michael Hayden, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe as candidates for revocation.

“The president is exploring the mechanisms to remove security clearances because they’ve politicized and, in some cases, monetized their public service and security clearances,” the press secretary said.

Sanders blasted the former intelligence chiefs for using their security clearances to launch what she called “baseless” accusations of Russian contact with the president.
