John Brennan says he learned about security clearance revocation from White House press briefing

Published

on

In his first live interview since news broke that his security clearance had been revoked, former CIA director John Brennan told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow about how he learned about the revocation.

“No one got in touch with me from the CIA since it was first noted that my security clearance was under review,” Brennan told the host. “I learned about it when somebody called me to tell me that [White House press secretary] Sarah Huckabee Sanders was announcing at the podium that these clearances were revoked.”

Throughout the interview, Brennan insisted that he’s less concerned about his own well-being in the wake of his revocation and more for the American people — especially considering that Trump has an “enemy list” of intelligence community members whose clearances he’s hoping to revoke.

“I think this is just another example of Mr. Trump trying to frighten and intimidate others,” the former CIA director said. “But I can tell you, having worked in the national security and intelligence community for many, many years — these are not the type of people who are bullied or intimidated by the likes of someone of Mr. Trump.”
