The former CIA chief John Brennan speaks after his security clearance withdrawn; ‘America’s News HQ’ panel reacts.
John Brennan, the former CIA Director and outspoken critic of President Trump said in an interview on Sunday that he is ready to do what he can to prevent others of their security clearances revoked, including taking the President to court.
Brennan, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” said the lawyers have to prevent him about the issue and spoke about obtaining a preliminary injunction, that the more security clearance revoked.
“If my openings and my reputation, as I’m dragged through the mud now, if that is the price we pay, to prevent Donald Trump to do this against other people, for me it is a small price to pay,” Brennan said. “So I’ll see what I can do personally, to try to prevent these abuses in the future. And if it means that you have to go to court, I’ll do that.”
Brennan, who said served in President Obama’s administration, it is up to Congress to set aside politics and step in. “This is the time that your country is going to go on you don’t trust to do what is best for their party but what is best for the country,” he said.

Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., Brennan criticized the political comments on “Fox News Sunday,” but an alternative to crack proposed his space.
“John Brennan has really cross the finish line. He is one of the leaders of the resistance movement. … I understand President Trump frustration,” Johnson said, noting that Brennan began hard to criticize the President, as soon as he took office. “The best way of dealing with this, in any administration, is: If you don’t want to consult with someone who does not have them, tearing their security clearance, just don’t give them access to the classified information.”
