Trump Never Revoked John Brennan's Security Clearance

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

President Trump never revoked former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance.

The president announced in August that Brennan's security clearance was being stripped due to "erratic behavior" that disqualified him from having access to sensitive information.

But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times.

A CIA spokesperson declined to comment, telling the Washington Examiner the agency does not discuss individual security clearances. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment.

The revelation comes after Trump gave Attorney General William Barr "full and complete authority to declassify information" related to the origins of the federal investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. A day later, it was reported the order could put at risk a key CIA informant who provided information about the Kremlin's role in interfering in the 2016 election.

Barr, who asked the White House for the new power, has been reviewing the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign for weeks. Barr tasked U.S. Attorney John Durham with reviewing the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation and says he is working closely with Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz's Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse investigation. Republican allies of Trump say information could soon come out that will show misconduct by Brennan and other former Obama administration leaders.

Brennan was (fired?)(dismissed?) whatever by Trump the same day Trump was inaugurated, as I recall.

A security clearance is only valid to the extent that you're working in a position that requires it.

The talking point at the time was it is "tradition" that former government we're allowed access to advise and ease the transition. Which is pure :bs:.

Trump says some things, from time to time, to excite his base that he never follows through with. Maybe this is one of those times. Is Brennan still working for leftwing news outlets? If he is, then he probably still has his security clearance. If he isn't, then he probably lost it and with it, his value to them. This was supposed to have happened last summer.

The question seems to be whether Brennan lost it as part of a normal process, ie whether one has to specifically apply to keep it when leaving/being let go of the position. (I donít know and havenít bothered to look for an answer.)

Different agencies/organizations use different words but, in a nutshell, the "normal process" is that when you leave a job or position the clearance isn't "rovoked" per se but becomes "inactive" ("Dormant", whatever). get another job that requires it with 2 years, and it's just a mere formality to get it reactivated... as long it hasn't been more than 8 years since your last screening.

If the clearance in inactive for 2 years, OR if 8 years passes since the last screening, it becomes "lapsed". The you have to go through the whole process again, which takes 3-6 months.

Careful, those with T.D.S. often suffer severe allergic reactions to facts.
