#U.S. Army Brigadier Gen. Anthony Tata (Ret.) said #President#Trump was justified in revoking the #security clearance of #JohnBrennan, who Tata described as a "clear and present danger" to the nation.
Trump on Wednesday revoked the former #CIA director's clearance, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced, saying Brennan "has a history that calls his credibility into question." In response, Brennan tweeted hours later: "This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all American's, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent."
