Donald Trump: ‘I’ve Never Respected’ John Brennan

In the face of horror the Catholic Church is worried about PR

The opposition research firm hired former British spy Christopher Steele during the 2016 presidential campaign to compile the dossier. And that's okay with me, because I like taking on voices like that.

Signalling that his efforts to target clearances over his frustration with the Russian Federation investigation were not over, Trump tweeted that it was a "disgrace" for Bruce Ohr to be in the Justice Department. That is disqualifying for Mueller. Without citing evidence or offering proof, he said Mueller had conflicts of interest.

Trump turned his ire towards former Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr for communicating with the phony dossier investigator Christopher Steele after he was sacked from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and working with Russian oligarchs. Rosenstein appointed the special counsel and oversees his work.

A retired Navy admiral who oversaw the killing of terrorist Osama bin Laden says that if President Donald Trump is going to revoke the White House security clearance of former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, then Trump should revoke his, too.

The first letter, which was initially signed by 12 former senior intelligence officials from each administration going back to Ronald Reagan's presidency, added three signatories since it was first published Thursday.

"You don't have to agree with what John Brennan says (and, again, not all of us do) to agree with his right to say it, subject to his obligation to protect classified information", it continues.

Trump denied attempting to muzzle Brennan. "Very, very important. I've had a tremendous response for having done that".

"There's no silence. If anything, I'm giving them a bigger voice", Trump said.


The White House says it's also continuing to review the clearances of Hayden and other officials, many of whom have criticized the president.

He told The Wall Street Journal he believes Brennan is one of those responsible for Mueller's probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump obstructed justice by trying to derail the investigation.

The Post's list of targets includes the former director of national intelligence James Clapper, the former FBI directors Michael Hayden and James Comey, the former national security adviser Susan Rice, the former acting attorney general Sally Yates, the former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, and the former FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. He and others have disputed that claim, and the revocation has drawn the ire of current and former intelligence officials. "That signal is inappropriate and deeply regrettable".

Mark Warner on Friday said he plans to present an amendment preventing President Trump from "arbitrarily revoking security clearances".

Brennan said earlier this week he would "not relent" despite the removal of his clearance.

During an appearance Thursday morning on "Fox & Friends" on the Fox News Channel, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway defended Trump's action.

Brennan on Twitter described Trump's action on Wednesday as part of a broader effort "to suppress freedom of speech and punish critics", adding that it "should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out".

"I don't know McRaven", Trump said.
