During the daily briefing at the White House Wednesday afternoon, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said President Trump is looking to revoke the clearances of a number of former intelligence and law enforcement officials.
Addressing the clearance removal, Mr Trump dismissed Mr Brennan's criticism and cited "the risks posed by his [Mr Brennan's] erratic conduct and behaviour". Mr Comey has said that he no longer has security clearance. "The president has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information and who has access to it".
Trump's erratic behavior and warm words for Russian leader Vladimir Putin, whose agents interfered in the 2016 election to help the Republican, have turned many former foreign policy officials against him, from both Republican and Democratic administrations. My principles are worth far more than clearances. Brennan responded to the move on Twitter within hours of the announcement.
"No. If there were others that weren't, that we deemed necessary, we would certainly take a look and review those as well", Ms. Sanders said when asked if Mr. Trump is going after his political opponents.
This is a scathing retort less than 24 hours after the White House announced that President Donald Trump had ordered the revocation of Brennan's security clearances, a move that many saw as a symbolic threat created to silence critics of this administration. "I call it the rigged witch hunt, [it] is a sham".
The move immediately prompted accusations of political retaliation by current and former officials, as well as security analysts, who said Trump would set a unsafe precedent by punishing political speech. "It was unwise for Brennan to be so vitriolic in his comments, unwise but not illegal".
Last month he called the United States president's performance at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland "nothing short of treasonous".
Historic NASA mission will be first to 'touch the sun'
The Space Agency says the probe will travel up to 430,000 miles per hour and have to withstand temperatures near 2,500 degrees. The solar spacecraft mission exists because of his work in heliophysics, the study of the sun.
Democrats have been vocal in condemning US President Donald Trump for revoking former Central Intelligence Agency chief John Brennan's security clearance, forgetting that time he spied on a Democrat-run Senate committee in the name of #Resistance.
Admiral Mike Rogers, the director of the NSA at the time when the ICA was drafted, wrote to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) that the dossier was used to inform the assessment, according to Real Clear Investigations.
In a statement, President Trump accused Mr Brennan of having "leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official with access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations, wild outbursts on the internet and television about this administration".
Former top national security officials have historically maintained their security clearances so they can consult with their successors. Strzok had worked on the Mueller investigation but was removed after anti-Trump text messages that Strzok exchanged with an FBI lawyer became public.
Paul told reporters this week that Russian officials refused to acknowledge interfering in the 2016 presidential campaign and he said the USA should stop expecting the country to confess.
"An enemies list is ugly, undemocratic and un-American".
