Brennan Security Clearance NOT Revoked...

Trump’s Targeting of Intelligence Agencies Gains a Harder Edge

Michael S. Schmidt and Julian E. Barnes 11 hrs ago

WASHINGTON — President Trump tried somewhat clumsily last year to revoke the security clearance of the former C.I.A. director who played a role in opening the Russia investigation. He then wanted to release classified documents to prove he was the target of a “witch hunt.”

Both attempts petered out, hampered by aides who slow-rolled the president and by Justice Department officials who fought Mr. Trump, warning he was jeopardizing national security.

But this week, Attorney General William P. Barr engineered a new approach. At Mr. Barr’s urging, Mr. Trump granted him new authorities to examine the start of the Russia investigation, demonstrating a new level of sophistication for an old line of attack. Unlike Mr. Trump’s hollow threats and name-calling, Mr. Barr’s examination of how the intelligence community investigated the Trump campaign could offer a more effective blueprint for the president to take aim at his perceived political enemies.

“The president is not known for the precision, judiciousness or thoughtfulness of his attacks, but he is in attack mode here and we seem to be opening a new front,” said David Kris, the head of the Justice Department’s national security division during the Obama administration.

A spokeswoman for the Justice Department and a lawyer for Mr. Trump did not respond to messages seeking comment. Mr. Trump told reporters on Friday that he hoped the attorney general “looks at everything, because there was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country.”

1. If this doesn't show how toothless the presidency actually is

I don't know what could. The only time the deep state lets the president look like he's leading is when they're using him to shield their warmongering/profiteering.

5. Waiting for the Acolytes to weigh in as to this being an enormously clever trap

by the 77 dimensional chess player to put Brennan away once and forever.

6. It's funny how dickheads blame Trump, instead of those people, for that..............
