Brennan’s security clearance should have been revoked

Aug. 20, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to former CIA Director John Brennan’s statement that he would appeal his security clearance revocation: “I am going to do whatever I can personally to try to prevent these abuses in the future, and if it means going to court, I will do that”:

“Former CIA Director John Brennan violated the basic code of conduct through his public accusations that the President engaging in diplomacy overseas with Russia was ‘nothing short of treasonous.’ It is clear that Brennan is no longer suited to be trusted with the secrets of the United States, and President Trump was well within his constitutional authority to revoke Brennan’s security clearance.”
