Donald Trump says Bruce Ohr next to lose security clearance

Could Mollie Tibbetts's abductor be 'hiding in plain sight'? Donald Trump says Bruce Ohr next to lose security clearance
Derrick Tucker | 18 August, 2018, 02:57

After revoking security clearance from former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, Donald Trump reportedly is prepared to exact the same vengeance on other individuals who he sees as political enemies. They call the White House's move "inappropriate" and "deeply regrettable".

According to former acting Central Intelligence Agency director Michael Morell, Gates was out of cell range when the letter was originally released, but he's an "important voice".

"Bruce Ohr is a disgrace, with his wife Nelly, doing what he did", he said, hinting that he was ready to take away Ohr's security clearance too. It marked the latest example of the president contradicting a story his aides had put forward to explain his motivations.

"What it shows is that the president is fixated on the Russian Federation investigation, he's angry about it, and he wants to do everything he can to discourage or slow down the investigation", he said. Lake said Brennan is an ideal foe for Trump since he's intelligence community figure with the sharpest criticisms against the administration. "I think it shows the state of mind and intent to interfere or impede any unfavorable discussion of his potential connection to Russian Federation". "We know John to be an enormously talented, capable, and patriotic individual who devoted his adult life to the service of this nation", said tonight's statement, signed by former Central Intelligence Agency directors William Webster, George Tenet, Porter Goss, Leon Panetta, David Petraeus, and Hayden, along with Clapper and former deputy Central Intelligence Agency directors John McLaughlin, Stephen Kappes, Mike Morell, Avirl Haines, and David Cohen. "He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don't know him", McRaven wrote.

Melania Trump Fires Back At Omarosa's Attack On Her Marriage
The dispute has been building for days as Manigault Newman promotes her memoir " Unhinged ", which comes out officially Tuesday. Sarah Huckabee Sanders can not say for certain that President Donald Trump never said the N-word during The Apprentice .

Just hours later, his explanation had changed. "The Hillary Clinton whole investigation was a total sham". "I think they're not good people". Very, very important. And I've had a tremendous response for having done that.

As Hill Reporter covered yesterday, legal analysts say that a president getting involved in the process of revoking security clearances, especially without going through the usual channels, is utterly unprecedented, and could result in legal battles to determine whether Trump actually has that power. Last year, in a speech at the University of Texas, he pushed back against Trump's assault on the news media as "the enemy of the American people".

Early this month, he admitted in a tweet that the Trump Tower meeting, which was arranged by his son, Donald Trump Jr., "was a meeting to get information on an opponent".

During an appearance Thursday morning on "Fox & Friends" on the Fox News Channel, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway defended Trump's action.
