Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance, so he criticized President Donald Trump and said Mr. President was “Drunk on Power”. President Donald Trump said John Brennan is a straight forward and outspoken critic of him. He also accused him of always “lying” and giving “increasingly frenzied commentary” on television. The Washington post; report was published on Friday. The report revealed Brennan’s security clearance was revoked just to deviate public and media’s attention from Manigault Newman’s book and her audiotapes. So Brennan reacted to that report and said: “the country is in crisis in terms of what Mr. Trump has done and is liable to do.”
The US Army Brigadier General Anthony Tata retired now, has favored the President trump in revoking Brennan’s security clearance. General Tata described that Brennan is a “clear and present danger” to the nation. Brennan responded that President Trump’s revoking the security clearance is just an effort to suppers the freedom of speech. On “Fox and friend”, the pro-Trump Gen.
