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.

Watch:

“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.

Watch:

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