Sarah Sanders just dropped a nuke bomb in her press briefing today. It is a stunner and the media was literally speechless.
The media’s collective jaws hit the floor when one reporter asked Sarah about John Brennan’s security clearance.
Rand Paul had earlier came forward and asked president Trump to yank the former Obama staffer’s security clearance.
From Fox News:
President Trump is looking into revoking the security clearances of several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday.
During the daily press briefing, Sanders told reporters that the president was considering taking away clearances for former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former Director of National Security Michael Hayden (who worked under President George W. Bush).
Early Monday, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said he would ask Trump to remove the security clearance of Brennan, suggesing he was “monetizing” his clearance.
President Donald Trump is considering revoking the security clearances of Obama-era government officials John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper, Susan Rice and Michael Hayden, and also former FBI official Andrew McCabe, because they have used classified information to make politicized statements, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters, Bloomberg News reports.
So Trump may yank the security clearance of James Clapper, Andrew McCabe, Susan Rice, Michael Hayden, and John Brennan.
That is Michael Corleone settle all family business style…but Sarah saved the best for last.
Asked about yanking Joe Biden President Obama’s security clearance Sarah said not at moment but didn’t rule it out.
