The bureaucratic Deep State is fuming over President Trump’s announcement that he’s considering revoking the security clearance access of several Obama administration officials.
The individuals in question include former CIA Director John Brennan, ex-FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former NSA Director Michael Hayden, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.“It’s kind of a sad commentary for political reasons,” Clapper told CNN on Monday. “This is kind of a petty way of retribution, I suppose, for speaking out against the president.”Hayden claimed having his clearance stripped won’t affect him.

A former Obama bureaucrat emerged on Fox News Monday to claim that Trump’s potential move against the Deep State would “ring the alarm bells in Washington.”
“These are Republicans as well as Democrats. And I think we’re going down a slippery slope,” said Adam Ereli, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Education and Cultural Affairs.
“Attacking them this way, or going after them in this way, or slanting the playing field in this way seems to me to set a very dangerous precedent.”
Trump’s consideration to revoke their security clearances was likely due to Senator Rand Paul’s advisement to do so after Brennan accused the president of treason – a crime punishable by death – on Twitter for attending a diplomatic summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
