Donald Trump: ‘I’ve Never Respected’ John Brennan

"Bruce Ohr is a disgrace, with his wife Nelly, doing what he did", he said, hinting that he was ready to take away Ohr's security clearance too.

He actually did Brennan a favor, he argued, because he now has increased name recognition because of the controversy over the president's move, which he told The Wall Street Journal was prompted by Brennan's role in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

"Let him write his report", Trump said.

McRaven echoed those sentiments, arguing in his op-ed that Trump has "embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation".

As Hill Reporter covered yesterday, legal analysts say that a president getting involved in the process of revoking security clearances, especially without going through the usual channels, is utterly unprecedented, and could result in legal battles to determine whether Trump actually has that power. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don't know him.

"If Brennan is to be faulted for anything, I don't think it is engendering a conspiracy against Trump, but failing as a major intelligence official to advocate a tough, firm, active policy against Russian measures to meddle with our elections", Rove said. And that's okay with me, because I like taking on voices like that.

Saudi cuts oil output as OPEC points to 2019 surplus
Despite the slight reduction in forecasts, Opec indicated the robust growth in demand is driving global oil markets into deficit. Bloomberg's monthly OPEC oil production survey put the Middle Eastern nation's output at 10.65 million barrels a day last month.

"It's a disgusting thing, frankly".

Brennan wrote: "Trump clearly has become more desperate to protect himself and those close to him, which is why he made the politically motivated decision to revoke my security clearance in an attempt to scare into silence others who might dare to challenge 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. It's a totally rigged deal. It's not us. It is a rigged with hunt.

But Trump said Wednesday he is reviewing the clearances of several other former top intelligence and law enforcement officials, including former FBI Director Comey and current senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr. "They should be looking at the other side", he said, a reference to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party.

If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken.

William McRaven, a retired four-star admiral who oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid, directly addressed Trump in a Washington Post op-ed published online Thursday.
