FROM EIR DAILY ALERT
Trump May Escalate Against London’s ‘Russiagate’ Faction
July 23, 2018 (EIRNS)—President Trump is “looking into” revoking the security clearances of several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced today. She accused the former officials of having “politicized” or “monetized” their public service, Fox News’ Brooke Singman reported today.
Sanders stated that Trump was considering revocation of security clearances for some former officials after Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) urged on President Trump to specifically revoke former CIA Director John Brennan’s clearance. Today Sen. Rand Paul tweeted, “Today I will meet with the President and I will ask him to revoke John Brennan’s security clearance!”
John Brennan is notorious for fighting against the declassification of the final, 28-page chapter of the 2002 Congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11, exposing the aid of various Saudis to the San Diego-based Saudi pilot/hijackers involved in 9/11.
U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said that Congress has “lots of questions” for John Brennan. Brennan called Trump’s statements after the summit in Helsinki “treasonous.” Goodlatte suggested that Brennan could have been biased against Trump, and that this might have influenced his judgment during his service.
“This is an extremely disturbing thing to see both he and [former FBI Director] James Comey—supposedly impartial government officials—carrying out their jobs in very important areas—express the kind of extreme bias that they’ve shown now, which I think reflects quite accurately what they were doing back in 2016,”
