This is good news, and should have happened a long time ago. Let’s hope more follow.

President Trump has revoked the security clearance for former CIA director John Brennan, the White House announced Wednesday, in the first decision to come from a review of access for several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders read a statement on behalf of the president during the start of the press briefing, saying Brennan “has a history that calls his credibility into question.”

The statement also said that Brennan had been “leveraging” the clearance to make “wild outbursts” and claims against the Trump administration.

“The president has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information and who has access to it, and that’s what he’s doing is fulfilling that responsibility in this action,” Sanders said Wednesday.

Last month, the White House said they were looking into the clearances for other former officials and Trump critics, including former FBI director James Comey; former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe; former director of national intelligence James Clapper; former national security adviser Susan Rice and former CIA director Michael Hayden (who also worked under President George W. Bush).

    Brennan & many more should have Security Clearance revoked ! I find it astounding in general how many are holding security clearance in general & once out of that position it should be canceled. New job new clearance ! More of the Swamp cleanup that has become obviously needed!

    Keeping your Security Clearance seems like another Establishment agreed upon practice like giving former Presidents office money, Obama approving Secret Service for entire Pres. families forever, Bush-Clintons giving each other awards, exempting Congress from Obamacare, etc. #DrainTheSwamp
