Barack Obama’s Deep State has sought to undermine Donald Trump from the moment he won the GOP primary.
Even though Obama is out of office, his Deep State allies placed themselves in positions of influence and power to continue their work.
But that could all be about to change with this one act Trump just took.
President Trump just stripped former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance over his “erratic conduct and behavior.”
After leaving the Central Intelligence Agency, Brennan regularly criticized President Trump on Twitter and as a regular commentator on MSNBC.
The Washington Times reports:
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, reading a statement from the president, said Mr. Brennan “leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official” to make false charges against the administration.
Mr. Trump’s statement began, “As the head of the executive branch and commander-in-chief, I have a unique constitutional responsibility to protect the nation’s classified information, including by controlling access to it. Today in fulfilling that responsibility, I’ve decided to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency.”
The president said Mr. Brennan’s actions have “exceeded the limits of any professional courtesy.”
Not long ago, Brennan attacked President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin as “nothing short of treasonous.”
Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

Senator Rand Paul previously raised questions about Brennan’s security clearance back in July. At the time he asked, “Is John Brennan monetizing his security clearance? Is John Brennan making millions of dollars divulging secrets to the mainstream media with his attacks on @realDonaldTrump?”
During a White House Press Briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted the president was considering revoking security clearances of other members of Obama’s Deep State, including former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Peter Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Bruce Ohr, whose wife worked on for Fusion GPS on the fake Russia dossier.
