The White House is making it clear to intelligence officials from current and former presidential administrations: criticize Donald Trump and you'll lose your security clearance.
In today's White House briefing, spokesmonster Sarah Sanders said Donald Trump is looking into how to rescind the security clearances of John Brennan, James Comey, Jim Clapper, Michael Hayden, Susan Rice and Andrew McCabe, because he believes they have "monetized" their clearances and made "baseless charges" against Trump involving Russia.
All of those officials have been critical of Trump and his administration's policies.
"The president is exploring these mechanisms to remove security clearances because they have politicized, and in some cases, monetized," Sarah Sanders said.
They must not have explored too hard yet, because a few of the officials named haven’t had a clearance for months anyhow.
Sanders also said they have made "baseless accusations" about Russia and Trump.
“You can't accuse the president of 'treasonous activity' when you have a top-level security clearance,” she said, bullshittily.
You can, OF COURSE, call it like you see it, when you see him committing treasonous activity with your own lying eyes.
