Trump worked with Russians and now he’s desperate — Former CIA director

It said that eight other critical officials could also lose their clearances.

Sanders is citing Brennan's "erratic conduct and behavior" and accusing him of "lying" and "wild outbursts".

Specifically, Trump cited Brennan's denials that the CIA would access congressional computer files and statements that a dossier compiled by Christopher Steele about Trump during the 2016 campaign did not inform the agency's findings on Russian interference in the election.

The host asked Brennan if Trump was afraid of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Burr says if the claim is based on intelligence Brennan received while CIA director, it should have been included in the 2017 USA intelligence assessment of Russian meddling in the election.

"This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics", Brennan wrote.

But Brennan, who is now a contributor at MSNBC, has gone much further than his tweet criticizing Trump's twitter battles. "I will not relent".

Former director of national intelligence James Clapper, who led the creation of the ICA, admitted to CNN in 2017 that "some of the substantive content of the dossier" was included in the assessment.

Critics slammed Trump's action as an abuse of presidential power. "I never, ever thought that I would see it here in the United States", he said.

You could be forgiven for having flashbacks to Trump's interview with NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt in the aftermath of his firing a year ago of James B. Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director. "Security clearances for those who still have them may be revoked, and those who have already their lost their security clearance may not be able to have it reinstated". He is saying he is punishing people who were involved in that, which at the very least would seem to create a chilling effect for other would-be critics. He said Brennan of participated in a "shredding of constitutional rights, lied to Congress and has been monetizing and making partisan political use of his clearance since his departure".

"I've seen this type of behavior and actions on the part of foreign tyrants and despots and autocrats for many, many years during my Central Intelligence Agency and national security career". He's also been critical of the president.

Hayden, too, said revoking his clearance wouldn't have any effect on what he says or writes.

"It's detrimental to national security, and what does Brennan gain from this?" Strzok fired. Yates fired.

Sanders says the security clearances of other current and formers officials are also "under review".

He said Trump's "claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash". "The only thing in tatters is the President's respect for the rule of law".

Before serving as homeland security adviser and later CIA Director under President Barack Obama, Brennan served as the inaugural director of the National Counterterrorism Center under President George W. Bush. In 2011, Brennan lied about civilian casualties and US drone attacks. Ohr is now a Justice Department lawyer.
