Trump warns he'll revoke clearance of Justice Department official

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the decision to pull Brennan's clearance at a briefing on Wednesday, reading a statement from Trump that accused Brennan of making "a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations - wild outbursts on the internet and television - about this Administration".

The Republican chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee is challenging former CIA Director John Brennan's claim that President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

The signees included seven former CIA directors, six former CIA deputy directors and two former national intelligence directors, James Clapper and retired Navy Adm. Denny Blair.

"I will be introducing an amendment next week to block the President from punishing and intimidating his critics by arbitrarily revoking security clearances".

"If anything, I'm giving him a bigger voice", he said Friday, according to The Washington Post.

"There are few, if any, who have a more impressive record of service", Hayden said.

In August 2016, just two days after Brennan briefed Senator Harry Reid and other members on Russian interference in the election, the Nevada senator wrote a letter to then-FBI director James Comey, calling the FBI to investigate Trump's campaign. "Revoking the security clearance of former Central Intelligence Agency chief is nothing but a blatant attempt to silence a critic, to take away his right to free speech, to purge him". "For him to be in the Justice Department, and to be doing what he did, that is a disgrace".

Ohr's wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS during the campaign - something Mr. Trump has tweeted about to highlight his assertions of political bias behind the Russian Federation investigation.

President Donald Trump spoke to members of the media, today, before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington for a short trip to Andrews Air Force Base, Md., and then on to Southampton, N.Y., for a fundraiser.

Trump also lashed out at Mueller, saying former FBI Director James Comey was the special counsel's "best friend". 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". A good leader sets the example for others to follow. "And Mr. Mueller has a lot of conflicts, also".

He wrote in Thursday's New York Times that Trump "clearly has become more desperate to protect himself and those close to him. We did nothing. There's no collusion".

The newspaper reports that Trump called the investigation a "rigged witch hunt. a sham" and went on to declare, "And these people led it".

Putin told reporters in Helsinki, while standing next to Trump, that he had wanted the former NY businessman to win the White House.
