This quintessential swamp creature Brennan is a die-hard Obama-lover apparatchik, and he is famous for lying to Senate during his testimony on CIA spying on Congress back in 2014. He also lied to Congress in 2017, while under oath, mind you, as he claimed the so-called intelligence community did not use the Steele dossier in order to obtain FISA warrants, for spying on Donald Trumps campaign officials in 2016.
Brennan is also known for his temper tantrums on Twitter:

He lied to congress under oath. So, why isn’t he being prosecuted or in prison by now?
This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent.
What a pompous corrupt twit. The ruling elites and their minions really think all American's are idiots.
Because he’s a liar and a nut-job.
During his application to the CIA he also admitted in a lie-detector test that he had voted for the U.S. Communist Party candidate for president, Gus Hall, in 1976.
The RNC Swamp critters would have even more openly rebelled had Trump moved against their DNC loyalist fellow swampers with the speed they were due.
We really need to expunge the sorts of people who helped sustain the religion of peace BS from out intelligence and security community, who did their worst to bury efforts such as those by Stephen Coughlin to have a real world, rather than taqiyya world, appraisal of terrorism ... something they did well before Obama took office.
People do not retain security clearances after they leave the job, even if they are not fired. They no longer need to know. It has always been this way.
So the question is: is the author of this tripe truly stupid, or is he a new world order toady attempting to promote the notion that clearance revocation requires some sort of justification?
There isn’t a third possibility. Those are the only two.
Communist and socialist are insults and slurs way worse than the standard fare that the Left freely uses these days.
Simple - once you leave the job, you no longer have a need to know so the clearance goes away. EZ - PZ

= = =
former - -
So why would he need a current security clearance now?
(Other than spying and leaking?)
sufficient reason.... would have been to revoke it because the man is no longer employed in a position requiring access to sensitive or secret govt information
it should have been revoked when the man left govt service
the question is, why wasn’t it?
And ‘cause Brennan is a traitorous Comsymp!!!
Maybe Trump is signaling who is going to be indicted.
Because the ruling class and their minions have an unspoken agreement not to turn state’s evidence against each other.
But, they can still be informed legally via back door contacts. The revocation makes such information sharing illegal. Brennan is a Wahabis Muslim convert as well as a communist sympathizer. Is this someone who can be trusted?
The media is really angry Trump took away Brennan’s ability to leak to them.
This is the Gus Hall who, as leader of the Communist Party USA wrote a book where he openly admitted that there would be a substantial portion of U.S. citizens who would have to be executed once the communists took over the country.
I read about that statement about his book in a source that stated that because of that open admission, the Communist Party had been trying to hide Hall’s book and would destroy copies and eliminate them from libraries. At the time, I was skeptical about this assertion and wondered whether the author was exaggerating.
I noticed that Hall’s book was in the card catalog of the Glendale, CA public library, but it wasn’t on the shelf. [This was in the late 1960’s.] When I requested it, the librarian produced a copy from a special behind the counter stack. I asked why Hall’s book was treated in this special way. She replied that books were kept “behind the counter” when it was determined that versions in the open stacks would be stolen or damaged. By keeping a copy behind the counter, the librarians would know who was handling it.
That experiment cured my skepticism! :)
Of course, this is bull-pucky. There they both are complaining about their free speech rights being restricted, whilst at the same time they are exercising their free speech rights. Do they think Americans are dumb and don't see that?
Besides, Brennen and Clapper, have jobs as talking heads for CNN, the leader in anti-Trump, fake news on cable TV. Their freedom of speech will be just fine.
And notice that there is no mention that none of these people, including Brennan, have jobs with the federal government anymore. They shouldn't continue to have clearances if they are no longer working in government positions that require it.
It should be standard procedure to revoke these security clearances and not have to defend pulling them to the media.
A security clearance has noting to do with free speech.
