‘He won’t sue!’ Trump dares John Brennan to sue him over clearance revocation

Published

Press conference by US President Donald Trump at the NATO Summit in Brussels.

President Donald Trump dared former CIA director John Brennan to sue him over the revocation of his classified clearance.

The president ramped up his feud Monday morning with the former intelligence official after announcing last week that Brennan no longer had access to classified information.

“I hope John Brennan, the worst CIA Director in our country’s history, brings a lawsuit,” Trump tweeted. “It will then be very easy to get all of his records, texts, emails and documents to show not only the poor job he did, but how he was involved with the Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt. He won’t sue!”

Brennan said the day before that he may pursue legal action against the president, who revoked his security clearance last month and announced the move last week.

Trump admitted he revoked Brennan’s clearance as punishment for his criticism, and dozens of former top intelligence officials signed on to a letter blasting the move.

Cory Green, an Army Reserve and Navy veteran and private security officer running for Utah's 1st Congressional District, was charged with forcible sexual abuse in 2010 after he allegedly brought two teenage masseuses to a Motel 6, performed a sex act with an escort in front of them, and then paid one of the teenage girls for sex. He insists that the girl lied about her age and that his victim extorted him.

Here’s what really went down with Trump’s Taliban peace talks misadventure

Published

on

Donald Trump is not known for finessing foreign policy but for years prior to his election and during his campaign, he was mostly right about Afghanistan. He called it a “total disaster,” said it was “wasting our money” and that we should leave “immediately.”

It seemed that Trump understood the timeless – if sometimes historically inaccurate - tropes about Afghanistan being the “graveyard of empires” and home to “ungovernable” tribesmen who could outwit and humiliate the British, the Soviets – and us.
