The Obama administration used every branch and every person as a political weapon against their political opponents. The recent Project Veritas video is evidence of the continued efforts of the Obama hold overs and the Swamp to undermine this President. Unfortunately these low level individuals are easy to disavow and the people above them that are the real problem won’t let themselves be caught unless there is an actual investigation they will continue. This is a significant strategic move because now the classified information they are passing around with former administration officials will become atomic to them . If they have any and can’t get them back inside they are guilty of espionage and looking at long time prison sentences. President Trump is sending them a warning, which is very kind of him. He has the authority to do this without warning which would likely result in massive arrests. We should watch this carefully. The bluster by former Director of the CIA John Brennan is masked evidence of the concern that the deep state has as President Trump has given them the rope necessary to hang and they have continued to take the bait.

President Trump wants to strip former Obama intelligence officials of their security clearances for making “baseless” accusations against him on Russia, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday.
Trump is seeking to take away access to sensitive material for former CIA Director John Brennen, former FBI Director James Comey, former national security adviser Susan Rice, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former NSA Director Michael Hayden and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Sanders told reporters.
All have been tough on Trump in TV appearances.
“The president is exploring these mechanisms to remove security clearances because they’ve politicized and in some cases monetized their public service and their security clearances and making baseless accusations of improper contact with Russia or being influenced by Russia against the president is extremely inappropriate,” Sanders said.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Monday Trump should revoke Brennan’s clearance, but Sanders said Trump wants to go further.
“Not only is the president looking to take away Brennan’s security clearance, he’s also looking into the clearances of Comey, Clapper, Hayden, Rice and McCabe,” Sanders said at the White House briefing. “The president is exploring the mechanisms to remove security clearances because they politicize and in some cases monetize their public service and security clearances, making baseless accusations of improper contact with Russia.”
Asked by reporters if this was a violation of the officials’ First Amendment rights, Sanders disagreed.
The president doesn’t like that they are “politicizing” the agencies.
