How in the hell does a Democratic Senator think that he has the power to strip the President of control of security clearances? Senate Intelligence Committee vice chairman Mark Warner, D-Va, in a totally political pandering stunt proposes an amendment to strip the President of that power. We call bovine excrement on that. Senator. We recognize it for what it is. All clearances should be pulled from any and all persons who do not hold an active position in the government. They do it to all the working class when they leave a job, so why should the elites be treated any different? This is a taxpayer-funded boondoggle so they can work as security consultants. Private employers should pay for clearances/updates as it does for all private employees.
On a side note it sure does seem like Senator Warner has been getting extremely vocal of late any time something like this happens. Is there a chance he is hiding something?

“I will be introducing an amendment next week to block the President from punishing and intimidating his critics by arbitrarily revoking security clearances,” Warner tweeted. “Stay tuned.”
