Skip to comments.NBC Was Fuming Mad After Their Employee Lost His Security Clearance
Posted on 08/16/2018 4:19:07 AM PDT by Enterprise
As would be expected, the loss of Brennans security clearance was the first thing anchor Lester Holt got to during NBC Nightly News. It looks a lot like payback tonight for some former senior government officials who have spoken out against President Trump, he bitterly declared. The President yanking the security clearance for former CIA boss John Brennan today accusing him of using his access to sow division and chaos at the White House.
Unprecedented, White House correspondent Kristen Welker proclaimed at the start of her report. President Trump tonight revoking the security clearance of one of his harshest critics, career intelligence official and former CIA Director John Brennan, whos also an NBC News analyst. Of course, she omitted how under his leadership the CIA spied on U.S. Senators and hacked their computers, then lied about it under oath.

Sounds like Obstruction.
More questions Mueller will be adding to his list to ask Trump about his frame of mind.(that he can use to compare against secret tape recordings)
He’s no longer in government, he has no need for a clearance. PERIOD!
What’s it to them?
It’s not like he was passing on classified information to them.....Oh wait.
NBC is mad!? HaHahahahahaha. Let former Obama supporting, America hating, Trump despising a-holes have security clearance for Americas sensitive information so he can report them on TV?! Logic and common sense out the window again.
These former government democucks should all lose their security access and their viewing and download histories should be scrutinized. Former employees in the private sector almost never retain any rights to their prior employers intellectual property. This is just insane.
Yes, yes, frames of mind are illegal in all fifty states.
A known communist loses his security clearance? What a country!

I keep saying this: It isn't about the clearance it about the concept of "need to know". Nobody at any news agency had a "need to know" government classified information. It's the whole point.
Why do political appointees who no longer work for the government have security clearances and retired military don’t?
Can I have a security clearance too??? When a government official is no long serving they are just as you and I. When they take these media gigs they should for sure not have clearance. It sure make is much more obvious now who the ‘anonymous’ sources are.
Normally the folks who have seen the underbelly of intelligence keep their mouths shut. Instead, this asshat goes and gets a job with a network.
As soon as these folks are employed in that fashion, security gets yanked. I can see a period of time during the first year where their might be a need to consult with key individuals of a prior admin.....but those days are long over.
Remember, as President, Trump knows everything. Two, he is great at reading people which gives him such an advantage over the rest of us mere mortals. Three, Brennen is a globalist socialist......the so called elite who think the rest of society is too stupid to know what is best.
Yes. Our entire system of security clearances is based on NEED TO KNOW. With no job, what’s Brennan’s NEED TO KNOW? Even those with the highest clearances are still beholden to the NEED TO KNOW each operation they are read on, otherwise even they are not told.
If this whole coup mess is ever totally exposed and folks actually held to account it will be like looking back on Trump election predictions now to look back on these sanctimonious commentaries on behalf of treasonous traitors to the nation.
At a minimum, officials hired by the media should lose their access.
And I doubt seriously that NBC has a contract with FedGov doing classified work! Therefore no need for Brennan to retain a clearance.
This “wink wink nod nod I’ll scratch your back if you will scratch mine!” stuff on clearances for “out-of-high-office” types regardless of whether they are liberal or conservative has to stop !
OH PLEASE. Go talk to Dinesh D’souza about Unprecedented.
A lot of people criticize our POTUS who do not have security clearance.
