#1 What was it Colin Powell said? "You broke it, you bought it..."

#2 There is a process to appeal security clearance suspensions or revocations. USE IT !

#3 So... Constitutionally the president is the sole voice regarding national defense. The president can classify or reclassify at will. The people who actually go through background clearance investigations lose their clearance when they leave the job requiring it.

Trump changes the CUSTOM of extending the clearance of appointed officials past their leaving office. This is somehow a Constitutional crisis, despite all of the above.

Brennan lied to Congress about, of all things, warrantless surveillance of the entirety of the U.S. and of Congress. He should be thankful no one's figured out how to take him to court on that.

#4 *Giggle* Judge starts with "You no longer work for the US Government in any fashion and want a 'US Government' TS Security Clearance to do .... what exactly?"

#5 I hope Brennan does file suit, I think what comes out in discovery will be quite interesting.

#6 If Brennan was in Texas, he would be all hat, no cattle.

#8 Mr Brennan: Now that you are no longer employed in the national security area, I have one question for you and any who demand that you retain a security clearance:

What, precisely, is your NEED TO KNOW that qualifies you to have a clearance?

Otherwise, STFU.

#9 Another example of President Trump's superpower -- getting his opponents to confidently aim for him and hit themselves really, really hard.

#13 Actually the Supremes declared a case and decided clearances fall under the executive branch.

And Brennan doesn't want to be under deposition - I think Rudy said "Bring It!"
