President Trump suspects he’ll revoke Ohr’s clearance ‘very quickly’

A sketch of Judge T.S. Ellis III

On Thursday, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton tweeted about their lawsuit for documents relating to Brennan's leak to Reid, and said pulling Brennan's security clearance was "the right call".

In the statement, the officials call the move "unprecedented" and caution against using security clearances as a political tool.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Trump admitted his decision on Brennan's clearance was linked to the ongoing federal probe into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election. McCraven told Trump that as president, he has been an embarrassment and humiliation, and called the revocation of security clearances of his critics an attempt to silence criticism. The opposition research firm hired former British spy Christopher Steele during the 2016 presidential campaign to compile the dossier.

Trump took questions from the White House lawn on Friday, aand grumbled about the Russian Federation "witch hunt" while insisting that he actually amplified the voice of former Central Intelligence Agency director Brennan by revoking his clearance. Clapper and former CIA Director Michael Hayden have appeared on a White House list of people who may also have their security clearances revoked. And, while many intelligence officials-like former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, and Department of Justice attorney Bruce Ohr-have all had some of their Trump-Russia communications exposed, thus far, Brennan has been spared.

President Donald Trump has demonstrated a noticeable fondness for military leaders, surrounding himself with officers such as Chief of Staff John Kelly, Defense Secretary James Mattis, and former national security adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

McRaven was critical of Trump, saying he's "embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation".

It was previously reported that Marvel was trying to convince Disney to potentially re-sign Gunn in the wake of the controversy. Efforts to get Disney to reappoint James Gunn as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 have seemingly fallen on deaf ears.

A retired Navy admiral who oversaw the raid that killed Osama bin Laden is telling President Donald Trump that he'd be honored if Trump would yank his security clearance just like he did to former CIA Director John Brennan. I have never respected him.

"I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad".

The president's comments were a swift departure from the official explanation given by the White House earlier Wednesday that cited the "the risks" posed by Brennan's supposed "erratic conduct and behavior".

"I don't know McRaven", Trump said before boarding Air Force One to go to a fundraiser in the Hamptons before heading to his Jersey golf club for the weekend, a visit he said was "going to be all work".

Renato Mariotti, a former federal prosecutor agreed. "They should be looking at the other side", he said, a reference to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party.

Former officials often retain security clearance after leaving office to allow their successors to consult them on issues of the day.
