#1 ...Hear, hear. Once you're no longer employed by the Federal Government (or a contractor), you lose the fu@king clearance - is that so hard to figure out? There is no First Amendment right to a clearance (anyone who suggests that losing a clearance is a 'free speech' issue should be soundly thrashed everytime they bring it up), and there's certainly no right to a clearance while you are actively working to cripple or for that matter take down a President of the United States. Anyone who believes Brennan wasn't using his access to further his agenda is either a useful idiot or flat-out complicit.

And while we're at it, pull the clearances on every last one of those morons who signed the letter complaining about it. That alone may do more to put the fear of God and Donald J. Trump into people than anything else he's done so far.

People on the 'inside' still feel comfortable talking with him (Brennan, Clapper, etc). Without clearance.... not so comfortable. They (some of the talkers) still have to pass polygraph exams.

You want to know where the leaks come from? Take a guess.

#3 Gee, what a concept: "need to know" (NTK).
