Donald Trump says Bruce Ohr next to lose security clearance

John Brennan

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he will likely strip Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, of his security clearance and complained again that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the investigation of possible Russian Federation meddling in the presidential election, had conflicts of interest.

According to Fox News, Trump also boasted that he received a "tremendous response" after he yanked former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance earlier this week.

Webb argued that Brennan does not require a security clearance to go on television and wage a "partisan battle" against Trump and he is still empowered to say what he pleases. Here is what this clown - who spent years kissing the derriere of his "Muslim In Chief", with the hope that he would be rewarded with the title of chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (which, thank God, never happened) - had to say about the removal of Brennan's security clearance. The opposition research firm hired former British spy Christopher Steele during the 2016 presidential campaign to compile the dossier. And when these crimes were brought to the attention of former FBI Director James Comey, who also participated in this illegal and unconstitutional mass surveillance himself, he and his general counsel, James Baker, also buried this investigation, as "Obama loving" McRaven had done with the Extortion 17 coverup.

"The defendant did not provide 'substantial assistance, ' and much of the information provided. came only after the government confronted him with his own emails, text messages, internet search history and other information it obtained via search warrants and subpoenas", Mueller wrote.

I think Bruce Ohr is a disgrace. The president suggested that his first target would be Bruce Ohr, a largely unknown justice department official who has become a frequent target of criticism by Trump and the rightwing media.

Trump announced on Wednesday that he was revoking Brennan's security clearance, first citing that the former Central Intelligence Agency director posed a security risk.

The president commented on the issue as he left the White House to travel to Bedminster, New Jersey.

Patrick Cotter, a former assistant USA attorney in the Eastern District of NY and a longtime white-collar defence attorney, said that while a prosecutor could argue that Trump's targeting of clearances was intended as a warning that "if you contribute to, participate in, support the Russian Federation probe and I find out about it, I'm going to punish you", it is likely not obstruction in itself.

Besides Gates, those signing the letter included former CIA directors William H. Webster, George J. Tenet, Porter Goss, Michael V. Hayden, Leon E. Panetta and David H. Petraeus; former director of national intelligence James R. Clapper Jr.; and former deputy CIA directors John McLaughlin, Stephen Kappes, Avril Haines, David Cohen and Michael Morell.

Trump denied attempting to muzzle Brennan.

"There's no silence. If anything, I'm giving them a bigger voice", Trump said.

Still, Trump said Mueller should be allowed to finish a report on potential Russian Federation meddling in the election that Russian Federation has denied. The signers - who served in Democratic and Republican administrations - called Trump's action "ill-considered".

"I don't think it advances the criminal obstruction case, but I think it's factually relevant", said Mark Zaid, a national security attorney. "I will not relent", Brennan tweeted after the announcement.
