    Rand Paul Calls For President Trump to Strip John Boltonís Security Clearance

    Senator Rand Paul is calling for President Trump to strip the security clearance of jilted former National Security Advisor John Bolton, after the ultra-hawk revealed classified national security information in an upcoming tell-all book.
    Bolton was fired by Trump as National Security Advisor in September for endlessly agitating for neocon wars.

    No one, especially not John Bolton, should be able to use their security clearance for profit! I say revoke his clearance now ⁦@realDonaldTrumphttps://t.co/nH0qyrwEYe

    Sources indicate that the removal of Boltonís clearance ranges from possible to likely. President Trump slammed his former National Security Advisorís release of classified information in a tweet last week.
    Ö.many more mistakes of judgement, gets fired because frankly, if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now, and goes out and IMMEDIATELY writes a nasty & untrue book. All Classified National Security. Who would do this?

    Rand Paul previously led the charge in calling for deep state liberal John Brennan to lose his security clearance. Brennan, a former CIA director in the Obama administration, almost immediately reinvented himself as a vociferous anti-Trump pundit upon leaving office.

    What's Bolton's relationship to the US GOV at this point? How is his clearance justified? Is this a lifetime award?

    Would US Gov stop functioning if security clearances were enforced properly?

    No relationship.
    And it seems that the status quo is to let them keep it in case they get another government job or a job in the MIC etc.

    It would probably function much better if they took them away from anyone with no current need for them

    I agree the minute they leave the office they should have their security clearance taken. It's nuts to let these guys continue to have it.
