Experiencing a standard liberal weenie meltdown, retired Navy admiral William McCraven, who is also a member of the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Board, which, for the past 20 years, has donated to liberal Democrat candidates 10 to 1 over Republicans, blasted his boss, President Trump, in a Washington Post op-ed.
McCrazy is a bit on the rag over President Trump’s revocation of swamp rat John Brennan’s security clearance, which McCrazy and Brennan both, apparently, believe they have some sort of “right” to.
You don’t, McCrazy! The most important qualification for being granted the “privilege” of a security clearance is trust. John Brennan lost the trust of his superiors, especially his Commander-in-Chief, a long time ago. I personally would not trust Brennan as far as I could throw Michael Moore or a 500-pound ball of Jell-O, pardon my redundancy.
Nor do I trust you, McCrazy! How far would you have risen through the ranks had you publicly criticized and disparaged your boss at any point in your military career? Your career would have been over immediately, and you know it! A security clearance is about trust. If you can’t be trusted, you do not deserve, nor should you be granted a security clearance.
Now, go away. We the People gifted you a magical career, allowing you to retire young with a nice, fat pension and tons of bennies, while you insult us by ridiculing the man we duly elected as your Commander-in-Chief.
Here’s hoping President Trump obliges you and revokes your clearance forthwith.
McCrazy’s op-ed in The Washington Post….
Dear Mr. President:
Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.
Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.
Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs.
A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow. A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.
Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.
If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be.
Bullshit! The point person was Rob O'Neill. Big difference between sitting in the cozy WH war room and facing an armed, fugitive terrorist surrounded by other armed, fugitive terrorists. A security clearance is a privilege, not a right! You lose the trust, you lose the clearance.

Never in our history have we had the prior admin's #IntelCommunity Sr leadership use their former positions of trust as a platform to relentlessly spread lies & innuendo to undermine the next @POTUS. What @JohnBrennan et al have done is unprecedented
DRAIN. THE. SWAMP.

A former official maintains a security clearance after departure SOLELY for the benefit of the govt. John Brennan has clearly demonstrated he is of no use to this administration.
