Scores of ex-spies join in rebuking Trump over security clearances

Share this:

“There have been one or two other times where I recall a bunch of people speaking out, but not in this number and not at this speed,” Harlow said. 

“They are trying to speak out against politicizing national security and security clearances. This is not about a person. It is about the practice of trying to regulate speech by former officials by tinkering with their security clearances.”

“There are rules and regulations under which circumstances they should be removed,” he added. “None say they should be removed if the holder of the security clearance annoys the president.”

Brennan told MSNBC on Friday that the president's move was "an egregious act" that "flies in the face of traditional practice, as well as common sense, as well as national security."

He went on to say, "I think that's why there's been such an outcry from many intelligence professionals," he said. "Not to support me, but to support the principle that security clearances are something that's very, very solemn and sacred, and they never, ever should be used for political purposes — either to grant friends those clearances or to revoke clearances of your critics."
