(USA Today) Striking at one of his fiercest critics over Russia, President Trump said Wednesday he has revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, and continues to review the clearances of other Barack Obama administration officials.
Brennan has used his status “to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations” and “wild outbursts on the Internet and television about this administration,” Trump said in a statement read by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
