Deep Sweep

President Trump is looking to revoke the security clearances of former top FBI and CIA officials whom he feels spend too much time on television criticizing him. (Editor’s note: Many of those named don’t still have a security clearance, and others don’t use it at all.)

The president is exploring the mechanisms to remove security clearances because they politicized and in some cases monetized their public service and security clearances.” (Just when I was about to be outraged, she got me with that line about monetizing public service…)
