Watch: Reporter Completely Wrecks Trump’s Rationale For Revoking Brennan’s Security Clearance
On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press briefing to announce that the administration was revoking security clearance for former CIA Director John Brennan, citing “erratic” criticism of President Donald Trump.
But Bloomberg reporter blew up the justification being used by the Trump administration to revoke the security clearance of the career public servant.
Sink pointed out that the administration made a list of people in addition to Brennan who could lose their security clearances — and that it didn’t include a former Trump administration official who had already pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents.
“The reason people would say this argument strains credibility is there’s obvious examples, even from this administration,” he said. “Your former national security adviser admitted to lying to the FBI. Why is this only a list of Democrats who have been critical of the administration, and why should Americans have confidence that you are taking this seriously if there’s not a single Republican on that list?”
Sanders responded by completely dodging the question.
“Again, we would certainly look at those if we deemed it necessary, and we’ll keep you posted if that list gets updated,” she said.
