Security Clearance Has Nothing to do with Free Speech

It is the considered opinion that President Donald Trump was well within his authority when he pulled the security clearance of former director of the CIA, John Brennan. Since then, the former director has appeared on all the liberal media. That does not appear that his freedom of speech has been curtailed in any way. How does lack of access to highly sensitive information affect Mr. Brennan? If you add to that the reasons for pulling his clearance, you see more justification for the President’s actions. It is all summed up in this article.

As Written and Reported By Ted Noel for the American Thinker:

By now, we’re all familiar with former CIA director John Brennan’s unhinged tirades against President Trump.  But in that activity, he simply joins the chorus of Jimmy Kimmel, Maxine Waters, and others too numerous to mention.  Each of these loudly and continually announces one Trump sin or another, always without evidence.

Last week, President Trump revoked John Brennan’s security clearance.  Brennan immediately declared that it was “part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech and punish critics.”  Moments later, over a dozen former intelligence officials denounced the president’s action as “suppressing free speech.”  Somehow, the ability to see highly sensitive information is “speech.”  That’s curious.  I thought speech was something that came out of you, not something you took in.
