Donald Trump revokes security clearance of former Central Intelligence Agency director

"Today, in fulfilling that responsibility, I have made a decision to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency", Trump said in a statement dictated in the White House briefing room by his press secretary Sarah Sanders.

President Donald Trump announced Wednesday he had revoked former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan's security clearance, marking an unprecedented use of a president's authority over the classification system to strike back at one of his prominent critics.

In her new memoir Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House, Omarosa Manigault Newman alleges to have heard of a tape of the president using the n-word on the set of his reality television show The Apprentice.

While Brennan has been a vocal critic of the President since Trump took office, Brennan is well-regarded by both Republicans and Democrats as a seasoned national security expert.

"The veteran Clintonista also accused President Trump of participating in tapes involving "Scatophilia", "Bestiality", Pedoph [i] lia", and "Penceophelia". Coats is the top intelligence official working in government and was appointed by Trump. My principles are worth far more than clearances.
