Wednesday afternoon President Trump revoked the security clearance for former CIA Director John Brennan, and threatened to do the same for several others, including former FBI Director James Comey.

Comey, who was fired by the president in May 2017, responded by releasing the following statement on Twitter Wednesday night:

“Once again this president is sending a message that he will punish people who disagree with him and reward those who praise him. In a democracy, security clearances should not be used as pawns in a petty political game to distract voters from even bigger problems. This president befriends and praises despots and dictators like Putin and Kim Jong-un. Those friends provide stark contrast to the patriotic Americans and public servants he disrespects, threatens, and calls enemies: a war hero like John McCain, members of our country’s free press, and devoted public servants like John Brennan. American voters must not shrug off or be distracted from the terrible behaviors of this president, who lies to the American people every day, encourages racism, is a misogynist, and always puts his own interest above those of the United States of America. Politicians enabling this president should be held accountable in future elections. We are each responsible for what we say as well as for our silence.”

    If you sell your house you don’t keep a set of keys to it because it’s not yours any more so if you don’t work for the cia or fbi you don’t need security clearance

    McCain is a traitor and all security clearance for people who have been fired from their positions should be removed as well!!
