As Twitchy told you, 60 former intelligence officials have signed a letter condemning the revocation of former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance. Meanwhile, during a related discussion yesterday, CNN counterterrorism analyst and former CIA official Phil Mudd certainly did not appreciate commentator Paris Dennard’s defense of President Trump revoking John Brennan’s clearance, not to mention his claims that former intelligence officials can monetize their clearances. Hold on to something sturdy and watch:

"Zero. I get zero dollars from consulting companies that deal with U.S. government. Are we clear?" Counterterrorism analyst Phil Mudd takes exception to commentator Paris Dennard's suggestion that he benefits financially from his security clearance https://t.co/kPjQ9VFu4t pic.twitter.com/rTdipyFavC

Mudd got so angry he tried to kick Dennard off somebody else’s show.
Dennard stuck by what he said:
I stand by every word in this exchange. https://t.co/47EN1vQkfG

Mudd is not on Twitter but we’re guessing he’d disagree rather loudly.
