Revoke and Provoke

The fall-out from President Trump’s decision to revoke John Brennan’s security clearance continues to pile up as a “letter, signed by 177 former national security officials appointed by both Republicans and Democrats, accused Trump of acting against Brennan because Brennan had criticized him … Monday’s letter followed a similar missive that was released last week by senior figures including six former directors and five former deputy directors of central intelligence and a former director of national intelligence.” Tweets ensued. From The Guardian: Trump dares ‘worst CIA director’ Brennan to sue as security row deepens. (Brennan didn’t threaten to “sue” anyone.)

+ AP: Prosecutors preparing charges against Michael Cohen.

+ And the NYT article behind the latest weekend tweet/shit-storm: White House Counsel, Don McGahn, Has Cooperated Extensively in Mueller Inquiry.
