Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said that Former Director of the CIA John Brennan’s rhetoric with President Trump is one of the reasons we’re having a security clearance crisis.
“John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself,” Clapper said on CNN “State of the Union” Sunday, “John is sort of like a freight train and he’s gonna say what’s on his mind.”

James Clapper was responding to a NYT op-ed former CIA Director John Brennan penned a few days ago wherein he claimed Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.advertisement - story continues below
Brennan isn’t handling his security clearance being revoked by President Trump too well–he’s fuming!
Brennan’s op-ed drew a huge backlash even from people who aren’t supporters of President Trump.
Surprisingly, Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) released a statement slamming John Brennan’s claims in his NYT op-ed that President Trump’s campaign colluded with a foreign power.
“Director Brennan’s recent statements purport to know as fact that the Trump campaign colluded with a foreign power. If Director Brennan’s statement is based on intelligence he received while still leading the CIA, why didn’t he include it in the Intelligence Community Assessment released in 2017?” Senator Burr said in a statement.advertisement - story continues below
Senator Burr continued, “If his statement is based on intelligence he has seen since leaving office, it constitutes an intelligence breach. If he has some other personal knowledge of or evidence of collusion, it should be disclosed to the Special Counsel, not The New York Times.”
“If, however, Director Brennan’s statement is purely political and based on conjecture, the president has full authority to revoke his security clearance as head of the Executive Branch,” Mr. Burr concluded.
Brennan also routinely attacks President Trump from his Twitter account, at one point claiming President Trump’s Helsinki Summit with Putin was “treasonous.”
Brennan is completely unhinged and his nonstop attacks and anti-Trump bias further prove he weaponized the intel agencies to target Donald Trump.advertisement - story continues below
Both Clapper and Brennan have perjured themselves; they both promoted Hillary’s phony dossier and are panicking as the truth slowly comes out.
Watch Clapper throw John Brennan under the bus…

Brennan does not take well to being criticized, it will be interesting to see his response to being called a “freight train” whose “rhetoric has become an issue in and of itself.”
