You know, it’s really hard to feel bad for John Brennan getting his security clearance revoked when he’s got allies like ex-DNI James Clapper making arguments like this:
Ex-DNI James Clapper, targeted by Trump, tells me these moves are “unprecedented” & jeopardizes his 1st Amendment rights. Watch: pic.twitter.com/8HvwJ77uDB

Give us a break.
WTF is this clown talking about? First Amendment?

Since when is getting a security clearance revoked a threat to your 1st Amendment rights?

First amendment rights have NOTHING to do with a security clearance

L?L nobody has a RIGHT to a top security clearance.

An eternal top secret security clearance is a God-given, unalienable right for ex-government employees who lied to Congress under oath. The things you learn from watching CNN! https://t.co/4iocNPslPR

To be fair, even Brooke Baldwin seemed confused by Clapper’s assertion.
What in the possible hell does a security clearance have to do with free speech?? Too dumb to have clearance

Clapper got caught lying under oath to Congress. He should have lost security clearance then.
