    The former head of US intelligence blasted one of the officials who signed the letter casting doubt on Hunter Biden’s laptop - calling him a lying “phony” and igniting a Twitter war over the weekend. The spat erupted Saturday when Richard Grenell, the former Trump-appointed acting director of national intelligence, reacted to a post from John Sipher, who retired from the CIA in 2014, about ethical behavior among public servants. “Didn’t @john_sipher sign a letter 3 weeks before the 2020 elections saying don’t look at Hunter Biden’s laptop because it’s Russian disinformation?” Grenell tweeted Saturday. “Now he’s lecturing people about...

    House speaker Nancy Pelosi has made a big deal about President Trump supposedly spying on his political opponents. In the most recent case, a slew of leaks to top media organizations over Russia collusion leaks has got her and her sidekick, Rep. Adam Schiff, hopping.According to the New York Times:Mr. Schiff called the subpoenas for data on committee members and staff another example of Mr. Trump using the Justice Department as a "cudgel against his political opponents and members of the media."It is increasingly apparent that those demands did not fall on deaf ears," Mr. Schiff said in a statement....

    In other words, the regime codifies and sacralizes Ruling Party conspiracy theories, while it pathologizes and criminalizes Ruled Party conspiracy theories, all as a means of controlling the narrative in our so-called “democracy.” For quite some time the loaded phrase “conspiracy theory” has enjoyed pride of place alongside the nebulous, catch-all phrase “hate speech” as a censorship predicate used to silence online speech. Since 1/6, however, the phrase’s use case has expanded from censorship predicate to a prized tool in the Globalist American Empire’s security state’s latest attempt to target Trump supporters as de facto domestic terrorists.Today, that rhetorical razorblade...

    A report by Paul Sperry at Real Clear Investigations has provided more clarity into the plotting by the CIA to oust Trump. Specifically, it focuses on the handiwork on “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella, a CIA analyst. We learn a little here Federal documents reveal that the 33-year-old Ciaramella, a registered Democrat held over from the Obama White House, previously worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan, a vocal critic of Trump who helped initiate the Russia “collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Ciaramella contacted Schiff’s staff and the “huddled” with Schiff to plot...

    Robyn Gritz spent 16 years at the FBI, where she investigated a series of major national security threats. But she says she got crosswise with her supervisors, who pushed her out and yanked her security clearance. For the first time, she's speaking out about her situation, warning about how the bureau treats women and the effects of a decade of fighting terrorism. --SNIP-- Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who led the Defense Intelligence Agency, worked closely with Gritz to find terrorists overseas. He says it's a shame the FBI let go of someone with years of top national security experience.

    Once again, more evidence has emerged proving not only that the “deep state” is real, it has become an existential threat to the president of the United States and the security of the country he was elected to lead. On Thursday The New York Times published a report noting that Attorney General William Barr would be ‘professionalizing’ the effort against the intelligence community (the deep state’s core element) after POTUS Donald Trump “somewhat clumsily last year to revoke the security clearance of the former C.I.A. director who played a role in opening the Russia investigation.” That would be former CIA...

    President Trump never revoked former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance. The president announced in August that Brennan's security clearance was being stripped due to "erratic behavior" that disqualified him from having access to sensitive information. But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times.

    House Democrats will hear from former CIA Director John Brennan about the situation in Iran, inviting him to speak next week amid heightened concerns over the Trump administration’s sudden moves in the region. Brennan, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, is scheduled to talk to House Democrats at a private weekly caucus meeting Tuesday, according to a Democratic aide and another person familiar with the private meeting. Both were granted anonymity to discuss the meeting. The invitation to Brennan and Wendy Sherman, a former State Department official and top negotiator of the Iran nuclear deal, offers counterprogramming to the...

    Earlier this week, the Washington Post found the nerve to breathlessly lionize Tricia Newbold, an unelected bureaucrat bent on blocking the president’s access to trusted advisers. The Post announced that the “whistleblower told lawmakers that more than two dozen denials for security clearances have been overturned during the Trump administration.” These reversals include “the President’s daughter, her husband Jared Kushner and national security adviser John Bolton.” The story, like so many others, was dripping with innuendo against the president’s advisers but short on any actual misconduct that would justify denying security clearances.

    Full title: Here's Who Jason Chaffetz Believes Should Lose Their Security Clearance Over The Mueller Investigation Former Chairman of the House Oversight Committee and Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz (R) said he believes House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) needs to resign from the committee and have his security clearance revoked. Despite the Mueller report showing President Donald Trump did not collude with Russia, Schiff has gone on various TV shows saying there is "evidence" that actually proves that finding to be false. Of course, Schiff continually pushes that narrative but has absolutely nothing to back up claim. “I...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton no longer has a security clearance. Clinton had her security clearance withdrawn in August “at her request,” State Department official Charles Faulkner wrote to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, in a letter released Friday. Five other individuals whom Clinton had designated as researchers had their clearances withdrawn in September. The letter was dated a day after the clearances for Cheryl Mills and four other names, which were redacted, were withdrawn. Mills served as Clinton’s chief of staff during her tenure at the State Department. “At her request, former Secretary Clinton’s security clearance...

    Adam Lovinger, a former Defense Department analyst ... a whistleblower, is now battling to save his career. The Pentagon suspended his top-secret security clearance May 1, 2017, when he exposed through an internal review that Stefan Halper, who was then an emeritus Cambridge professor, had received roughly $1 million in tax-payer funded money to write Defense Department foreign policy reports, his attorney Sean Bigley said. Before Lovinger's clearance was suspended he had taken a detail to the National Security Council as senior director for strategy. He was only there for five months before he was recalled to the Pentagon, stripped...

    President Trump revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan last week after ordering a review of nine people — one current and eight former officials — who he considers political adversaries. One name not on the publicly announced list: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic candidate whose campaign was plagued by an FBI investigation into her mishandling of classified information. Many former officials retain security clearances, but the status of Clinton's clearance is not publicly known, despite being subject to intense debate, including bicameral legislation seeking to revoke her access.

Schweizer and Bruner write: Former CIA Director John Brennan’s temper tantrum over the revocation of his security clearance has inadvertently pointed a spotlight at one of the Swamp’s favorite get-rich-quick tricks: the national intelligence contractor hustle.
