Trump condemned by 12 former CIA chiefs over revocation of John Brennan's security clearance

Trump condemned by 12 former CIA chiefs over revocation of John Brennan's security clearanceTwelve former CIA chiefs have denounced Donald Trump’s decision to revoke John Brennan’s national security clearance, condemning the move as “an attempt to stifle free speech”. The US president on Wednesday removed the ability for Mr Brennan – himself a former CIA director – to access sensitive government information, citing the Russia investigation as the reason behind the move. “We all agree that the president’s action regarding John Brennan and the threats of similar action against other former officials has nothing to do with who should and should not hold security clearances – and everything to do with an attempt to stifle free speech,” the statement said.
