Trump stripped John Brennan of his security clearance, this is Admiral William McRaven's response:

Dear Mr. President:

Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.

Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.

Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs.

A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow. A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.

Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.

If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be.

Why do people still keep their security clearance when they no longer have the job? Turn in your keys, your name badge, and access to intelligence files from around the world. I know when I quit my last job, they no longer let me have access to the accounting and inventory system. What a bizarre tradition for DC to have. "Yes, you haven't worked in government for twenty years, lobby for a foreign company, but you still get access to CIA reports about that business."

John Brennan has been engaged in the illegal coup attempt to overturn a lawful election. No integrity, honesty or character. He lied to congress on the record about hacking members of congress in retaliation for oversight attempts by congress. He thinks he is above the law and belongs underneath the prison along with this admiral who is so vouching for him. He is, in short, a traitor.

Damn straight!

John Brennan was the dirtbag who who was spreading around this "Russian Theory" that the Trump campaign was involved with Russia. He - more than anyone else is responsible for the lies and deceit. He was (and is) trying to subvert the citizens of the USA. He should get the electric chair for being a traitor against America. John Brennan is a lowlife scumbag.

Exactly. Now we are hearing that revoking his security clearance is somehow silencing him, LOL!! I guess he can't speak without having a special clearance no other cable news commentator has... what a joke. If Obama had a hostile ex CIA chief trying to undermine his presidency daily on FOX, does anyone with a handful of brain cells not think Obama would have revoked his security clearance?

It doesn't matter what he did. No one should have security clearance after they leave office. There are several reasons why but they don't need it anymore and they can use it. We've seen so many people use things to make themselves Rich after they leave office. It's not appropriate

It appears that never-Trumper Burr even agrees with me.

The argument is that a former CIA guy could help with consulting if he or she still had a security clearance. BUT, if the said CIA person is extremely hostile toward an administration, who in their right mind would take anything he said with anything more than a grain of salt? Brennan has proven his dishonestly beyond a reasonable doubt so he's best to stay with MSNBC and to NOT have any access to information not available to any journalist.

I think Tucker did a pretty good job in explaining the lunacy here. I defy anybody to tell me where he is wrong or how he is lying.
