It’s official, President Trump has set up “the mechanism” for taking away security clearances from “certain individuals.”
White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley informed news reporters that the Trump administration is beginning to take the necessary steps to revoke access to classified intel. from former top intelligence officials.
“What I can say is that the president finds it extremely inappropriate for somebody to go on television under the perception of legitimacy, integrity and level false and baseless claims against another person without any evidence whatsoever,” Gidley said. “He finds that to be somewhat troublesome and concerning, and so he has begun the mechanism to remove security clearances from certain individuals. The names were listed yesterday. And when we have a further announcement on that, we’ll give it to you.”
