hahahahaah. Who is he going to sue and for what. His own words and actions convict him and Trump has the legal right and ability to pull his and the other Deep State Traitors security clearance. I'm sure Hillary can get Putin to issue them another one for Russia.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, I donít want my Clarence pulled, I donít want my Clarence pulled, I donít want my Clarence pulled!

I guess I should have thought about the spying on the Trump campaign, to help the Clinton campaign first.
If I did, ide still have my Clarence, and the president wouldnít be punishing me for my crimes.

Once you are no longer employed with the government why would you be allowed access anyway?
Go Trump

To leak classified information that jeopardizes the integrity of investigations, and generally to continue the resistance of President Trump.

Well that is what Brennan needs access for.
Go Trump

Odds are if Brennan takes legal action, somehow it will be heard at the 9th Circus.

As Trump has proven, U.S. presidents have too much individual power. Very few matters affecting our country should be left to the decision of a single person.

At least a smart and confident president seeks the advice of others. Trump relies on the demons in his head.

Hmmmmm...... Did OBAMA have too much individual power as President? Where HIS pen/phone proved more powerful than Congress TRUMP'S pen/phone has largely been used to ERASE what Obama spent years of inflicting on America.......

President doesn't have any more power then the previous 44 Presidents had, but he isn't wasting them on nonsense. He is cleaning the swamp, and putting a screeching halt to people gaining financial power from keeping secrets they have no right to, that goes for Comey, McCabe, Pstzok , better known as lover boy, Rice, any other left overs from the previous 44 Administrations.

obviously, you and I are universes apart. I favor most of what Obama did with his executive power. But that is not my point. When I say NO president should have the only vote on major issues affecting our country, I mean it. That would include both Obama and Trump.

I agree..... Executive power should be tempered with just a bit of discretion as to how it affects the whole Country. SOMEBODY certainly did that with the view that THEIR ideology would be the only guide for the Nation and piss on who had any opposition to that ideology.

The statement,"elections have consequences and John I won the election......" seems to stand out about who decided THEIR ideology was the one they would inflict on America.

Not quite. Obama consulted many experts in making that decision. Trump consults only himself, and therefore gets moronic advice.

But again, I believe no one person, including a president, should have unilateral power to decide issues that bear on the fate of the world.

No comprende.

Oh, I got it! You mean "why"?Treaties are a part of it.

But I don't think a president should have the power to revoke someone's security clearance based on a whim, or to stifle the opposition. What Trump did to Brennan was political in intent, and therefore an abuse of his (undeserved) power.

The man called the President a traitor and he said he has to much power.
Nobody elected this man and the President was right in revoking his security clearance.
These thorns in the side of Trump have done nothing but try and cause him grief.
It's time the other side gets the grief.
