White House Revokes Security Clearance of Former, Highly Political, CIA Director John Brennan…

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced today that President Trump has revoked the security clearance of former, highly political, CIA Director John Brennan.


Brennan is the first person from a former list to lose his clearance.  In addition to Brennan security clearances for former FBI director James Comey; former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe; former director of national intelligence James Clapper; former national security adviser Susan Rice; and former CIA director Michael Hayden are being reviewed.

Expanding the list today Mrs. Sanders added: recently fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok; former DOJ lawyer Lisa Page; former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and current DOJ official Bruce Ohr.  With the addition of Bruce Ohr, a currently employed DOJ official, it appears highly likely that he too will soon be fired.

The listed intelligence and justice officials are some of the known participants in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 weaponization of the intelligence apparatus for political purposes. Despite their growing number, we call them the “small group”.

The inside group, writ large, was operating a coordinated effort to influence the 2016 election and weaponize intelligence to target their political opposition.  The inside group was assisted by an external team of political operatives including: Fusion-GPS, Glenn Simpson, Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, Daniel Richman, Benjamin Wittes (Lawfare Blog); as well as contractors and agents -foreign and domestic- used by the intelligence apparatus.

Supporting the efforts of both the inside “small group” and the outside group; a large number of like-minded journalists from Yahoo News, Mother Jones, Buzzfeed, The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC were utilized -via leaks- in framing an intentionally and demonstrably false narrative that provided cover for their activity.

            Not sure, but even if he did, this is NOTHING like that. Technically, there is NO ‘direct evidence’, THAT WE KNOW OF, that any of these people ‘abused’ their security clearances, and NO, I am in NO way ‘defending’ them.

            Just saying, THIS IS YUGE, because either there IS such evidence, or VSG is asserting his authority. Either way, Joe; this is a BIG F’ING DEAL.

      Psalm 10
      1 Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
      Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
      2 In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
      who are caught in the schemes he devises.
      3 He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
      he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
      4 In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
      in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
      5 His ways are always prosperous;
      your laws are rejected by[b] him;
      he sneers at all his enemies.
      6 He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.”
      He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.”
      7 His mouth is full of lies and threats;
      trouble and evil are under his tongue.
      8 He lies in wait near the villages;
      from ambush he murders the innocent.
      His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
      9 like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
      He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
      he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
      10 His victims are crushed, they collapse;
      they fall under his strength.
      11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;
      he covers his face and never sees.”
      12 Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
      Do not forget the helpless.
      13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
      Why does he say to himself,
      “He won’t call me to account”?
      14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
      you consider their grief and take it in hand.
      The victims commit themselves to you;
      you are the helper of the fatherless.
      15 Break the arm of the wicked man;
      call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
      that would not otherwise be found out.
      16 The Lord is King for ever and ever;
      the nations will perish from his land.
      17 You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
      you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
      18 defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
      so that mere earthly mortals
      will never again strike terror.

    Russia and the 2016 Elections
    23 May 2017

    John Brennan, the former CIA director, appeared before the House Intelligence Committee as part of its ongoing investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. He testified that the Trump campaign did have contact with Russia and that he told Russian intelligence in 2016 to end their attempts to influence the U.S. election.

    Here are the steps I’d love to see Trump take over these next 60 days as this would cripple the Democratic Party and give Trump a large majority in house and senate come Nov.

    Step 1 – Cancel Brennan’s clearance first to spotlight ringleader level

    Step 2 – Cancel Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Yates, Clapper, Ohr. clearance to spotlight worker bee level

    Step 3 – Grant Assange immunity on DNC issue and allow him to testify PUBLICLY on any evidence he has on DNC hack and Clinton emails – (This will freak the leftist out of their mind)

    Step 4 – Declassify FISA and present it to the public using Joe and Jay to point out the areas where laws were broken and how the left used this to prop up this entire Russia hoax.

    Step 5 – Declassify the Clinton emails and Weiner laptop emails publicly so all Americans can see

    Step 6 – Expose the Clinton Foundation by using the hard evidence the DOJ recently confiscated from Little Rock

    Step 6 – Huber files indictments on those who conspired to frame and take down a sitting President with sedition charges.

    • Bogeyfree, I believe that it will be done after the election in November, when we’ll get super-majority and political judges will be removed from the benches..


      • Bogeyfree says:

        Why wait until after the midterms?

        There is so much that will take weeks for normal folks to digest and if Trump wants to move independents, moderates and more minorities over into the Republican column come Nov he must IMO get at least the declassified FISA out publicly so the people can absorb, become outraged, demand immediate shutdown of Mueller and then to spit in the face of those who tried to snooker them, they vote republican come Nov and Trump gets huge majorities in both houses.

        Then let the indictments come out if necessary after the election.

        I really think if Trump declassified FISA, got Assange to testify that it was not the Russians who hacked the DNC server and Trump declassified the HRC emails and Wiener laptop emails Trump could get 60 in the senate.

Of course, that would never be allowed by the perpetually outraged, screeching Congress critters with lots to hide, but watching him lay out everything on TV would be The Greatest Show on Earth…and a long overdue one.

    This is a good start. Every single person involved with the abuse of our government apparatus to over turn a legal election should lose their clearance. Charges should be brought to them

    Every TV pundit who is getting classified information and using to enrich themselves through political activism should have clearances pulled. If getting classified info is through illegal leaks they to should have charges brought to them.

    No one should be playing around with classified. It’s classified to protect Americans and should be treated as such. If it isn’t really classified but a shield to protect themselves from accountability it’s time to rethink the classification system.

    I believe anything bad that anyone says about Glenn Simpson. I knew him when he worked as a writer at Insight magazine (The Washington Times). He was about 25 or 26 at the time. We both lived in the Adams Morgan area of DC, and sometimes he would ask me for a ride across town. He was a handsome young man (I am much older) and quite full of himself. Once, in the car, he told me this bizarre story — it was completely fabricated — about “orgies” that the writers and editors of Insight magazine were having at parties, and he went into detail. I was shocked and told another writer at Insight what Glenn had told me — and of course found out the truth. I think Glenn is a congenital liar, and he does it for fun. He is, exactly as our President has said, one of those “really bad people.” Funny, I had never come across anyone quite so malign until I had lived in Washington DC.

      Huber has the power to access a grand jury and indict. I would imagine he would first consult with superiors at DOJ. That could get complicated, especially if Rosenstein happens to be a subject of one of the indictments.

    Of course now JOHN BRENNAN understands that the “protection” he had with his security clearance being revoked, he is a marked man for the CLINTONMACHINE. Remember that Brennan was part of the “inner ring” of the Hillary Clinton cabal to destroy Donald Trump and guarantee that Hillary Clinton would be the 45th President of the United States.
    Once the security clearances of Comey, Clapper, et al are also revoked, they will also realize that their “protection” is gone and they also will be marked men in the CLINTONMACHINE vectors.
    Hence we see part of the result in Brennan’s tweets. He is moment by moment becoming disconnected from reality as he begins looking over BOTH shoulders at the same time, something he’ll have to do for the rest of his—-life.

      William E. Colby: A Highly Suspicious Death
      By Zalin Grant

      This was Saturday, April 27, 1996. William Colby, a former director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, was alone at his weekend house across from Cobb Island, Maryland, 60 miles south of Washington, D.C. Colby, who was 76 years old, had worked all day on his sailboat at a nearby marina, putting it in shape for the coming summer.

      After he got home from the marina, Colby called his wife, Sally Shelton, a high-ranking State Department official who was in Houston, Texas, visiting her mother. He told her that he had worked hard all day and was tired. He said he was going to steam some clams, take a shower, and go to bed.

      Colby made the call at 7 p.m. He was seen a few minutes later by two sets of witnesses in his yard watering a willow tree. One of the witnesses was his gardener who dropped by to introduce his visiting sister. His two next-door neighbors saw him at the same time from their window. After he finished watering his trees, he went inside and had dinner.

      The witnesses saw him at 7:15 p.m. The sun set at 7:57—42 minutes later.

      When he was found dead in the water nine days later, it was said that he had gone out paddling his canoe at nightfall and drowned. I was in Paris when I read the story in the International Herald Tribune. I knew William Colby. And I didn’t believe that for one second….CONT’D:

      Not even Brennan himself in his tweet. They know the President is completely in the right to do this.


    • bflyjesusgrl says:

      Dershowitz on Hannity was trying to say it may violate his 1st amendment and ACLJ should sue. Levin later said no way, because clearance is not a constitutional right. Sean read rules on CIA Dir clearances which states they can be renewed every 5 years and may be retained as long as they act like a regular CIA employee. Clearly Brennan is not acting like a CIA employee!!

        I agree with Levin. His rights aren’t being violated, but this is one of those “teachable moments” when we’re reminded that just because you have the right to do something, doesn’t mean you should. Besides, it’s not what he’s said about Trump that got his clearance canned. It’s what he’s done and is doing that makes him a national security risk and an abuser of clearance privileges. The fact he couldn’t keep his mouth shut and behave with some dignity publicly was his choice. It was a bad one, but if his yapping had any impact on the decision, all it probably did was publicly highlight a lack of judgement that hastened the inevitable.

        Maybe John would like to tell us about those passport breaches 9 years ago or so, and explain why they were “necessary” to protect “democracy”, while he’s publicly venting his outrage.

    I’m sure Brennan’s countenance did not change at all when he heard about the long overdue and justified revocation of his security clearance. It seems impossible to look more miserable, pouty, angry, grouchy and bitter than his usual look or when he’s performing for the cameras on CNN and MSNBC.

      No, but obummer would be pulled, at the same time.
      Interesting the ‘spin’ is that this was cause he had exhibited ‘erratic’ behavior. Are the others listed, as being under consideration, ALSO exhibiting erratic behavior?

      Sounds like a cover reason, to me. Also, POTUS can pull, or grant, S.C.’s at his discretion, and doesn’t need to give a reason.

      Yet, he said a week ago it was ‘under consideration’,…Wonder what the rules and regs actually say about pulling S.C.’s. Any treepers know?

      I also find it interesting that Michael Hayden is on the list. Veeeeery interesting!

    “In addition to Brennan security clearances for former FBI director James Comey; former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe; former director of national intelligence James Clapper; former national security adviser Susan Rice; and former CIA director Michael Hayden are being reviewed.”


    You have to revoke them ALL; not just everybody who was part of the Hussein Treasonocracy, but EVERYBODY who ISN’T a current member of the administration.

    What about Valerie Jarrett? She’s running the entire ‘resistance / coup’ from Hussein’s D.C. house!

    It’s a FARCE.

    The ONLY people our government successfully keeps SECRETS from is We the People.

    Anybody, current or past, who worked for Hussein is an automatic national security risk, PERIOD.

    Cutting off Brennan and leaving all the others is like cutting one snake off of Medusa’s head before you check her for lice.

        The president of the United States, especially this one, does NOT operate out of position of fear, certainly not out of fear about what this treasonous scum might think to do from their prison cells as they await execution.

        And we need to stop operating from a position of fear as well.

        We CONSTANTLY derail our own efforts out of fear of “what they’ll do” in response.

        SCREW ‘EM.

        They’re going to do it anyway, so you better hurt them as badly as possible while you can.

        It’s that simple.

        There is NOTHING to be gained by going ‘easy’ on this treason-scum.

        They are literally no different than ISIS in many respects, they just wear nicer clothes.

        They can’t do ANYTHING to him if he is not breaking the LAW.

        THAT is the critical distinction between the criminal political-class and the MAGA team.

        The whole “if I do it to you, then you’ll do it to me” paradigm only exists when they’re ALL treasonous criminal bastards.

        The blackmail, the threats, the coercion, that whole mafia model our political-class runs on only works when everybody is dirty.

        That paradigm falls apart if you’re not a treasonous criminal bastard.

        They don’t even know the meaning of the WORD. Their ‘upset’ is not what we ought to be focusing on.

        I AM PISSED at these treasonous bastards for ruining our country and our lives — and everyone else who begins to understand how evil these people are ought to be also.

        Their snowflake ‘upset’ at that sick, twisted pyschopath’s ‘loss’ is NOTHING compared to the blood-soaked PURGE they so richly deserve — and most certainly should receive.


        These people are committing TREASON, they are trying to destroy our COUNTRY, and even THAT is only the tip of the iceberg.

    Are security clearances revoked when one is indicted? I remember in the Navy those awaiting court martial were taken out of their shops (if you needed a security clearance to work there), and put in some temporary labor unit until trial.


  46. snellvillebob says:

    John Brennan moved from a position in the White House to became CIA Director in January 2013, the same year that Dianne Feinstein’s office manager in San Francisco was discovered to be a Chinese spy. One would assume that a CIA director would be made aware that a top politician on the Select Senate Intelligence Committee had employed a foreign spy for over 20 years. So Brennan was logically part of the cover up and had something on Feinstein. This must be why she did not demand that he be fired for hacking her computers and then lying about it.
    Hillary Clinton allegedly took 500 FBI files with her when she and Bill left the White House in January of 2001.

    Yeah, this shuts Brennan up because without a security clearance it cuts him off from talkin’ with his pals Clapper, Comey, McCabe, and Ohr. If they do talk to him about any of this stuff then they have committed a crime by revealin’ classified information. Strzok got silenced the same way. The rest of the Bozos are under review. All he can do now is squawk like some cranky old crone. Some tough guy, Ha!
