Army Gen. Supports Trump Revoking Security Clearance of ‘Communist John Brennan’: He’s a ‘Danger’ to Nation

President Donald Trump revoked former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance, and retired U.S. Army Brigadier Gen. Anthony Tata gave the decision a thumbs up.

Tata told “Fox & Friends” that “Communist John Brennan” shouldn’t have had security clearance to begin with.

“I think that John Brennan is a clear and present danger and a threat to this nation,” Tata said.

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a statement from the president that said Brennan “has a history that calls into question his objectivity and credibility.”

“The president has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information and who has access to it, and that’s what he’s doing is fulfilling that responsibility in this action,” Sanders said.


“I call it the rigged witch hunt, [it] is a sham,” Trump told The Wall Street Journal. “And these people led it. So I think it’s something that had to be done.”

Brennan responded in a tweet:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also responded, calling it an “abuse of power”:

However, many agreed with Trump’s decision in revoking Brennan’s security clearance:

In 2016, Brennan recalled taking a lie detector test when he first entered the CIA in which he was asked, “Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the U.S.?”

He admitted that as a college student in 1976, he voted for the Communist Party candidate for president.

“I froze,” Brennan said, CNN reported. “This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate.”

“Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin added to the discussion.


“He supports the overthrow of this particular president, and he needed to have his access to information revoked,” Tata said.
