    Rand Paul: Deep state protected John Brennan's security clearance

    Sen. Rand Paul suspects someone revoked President Trump's order to have former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance revoked.
    The president announced in August that Brennan's security clearance was being stripped due to "erratic behavior" that disqualified him from having access to sensitive information. But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times in a report published last month.
    Asked to comment about it in an interview on CNN, Paul said the "deep state," in which federal or military officials defy a democratically elected government, was likely to blame.
    "Now the deep state is actually protecting their own and not listening to the president's orders," the Kentucky Republican said on Tuesday. "I was sitting in the White House when President Trump said I want his security clearance taken, and I saw the order given. I saw the chief of staff was there, not the current chief of staff, the previous chief of staff."
    "People talk about the deep state, now the deep state's actually protecting their own," says Sen. @RandPaul on ex-CIA Dir. John Brennan keeping his security clearance.

    He was referring to former White House chief of staff John Kelly.
    "If they are working against ... the president that really does disrupt our country, does disrupt a representative democracy where the president makes a decision. If someone is countermanding that, I think we need to get to the bottom of that," Paul said.
    A close ally of the president, Paul said he hopes Trump will conduct a search to find out who defied his order.

    You should support Brennan.


    At least that is what some posters would have us believe.

    You need to understand Brennan's perspective.

    Any stick will do to beat a dog, right?

    And Trump is the designated dog to be beaten, the MSM says so.

    It couldn't be that Trump is the best available rock to use to crush the slug of the deepstate, right?
