John Brennan might have leaked classified intelligence. The Washington Examiner reports:
Sen. Richard Burr, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, pushed back Thursday on ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s claim that President Trump colluded with the Russians,warning that it could be an “intelligence breach.”
The challenge by Burr comes as some GOP allies say Trump abruptly revoking Brennan’s security clearance this week is no big deal, while Democrats and allies of Brennan suggest it could set it a dangerous precedent for ex-officials who have been vocal critics of the president.
The White House announced on Wednesday that Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance, after which Brennan accused the president of attempting to “suppress freedom of speech & punish critics.” In an interview with the New York Times published Thursday morning, Brennan, who was CIA director under former President Barack Obama, said there is no doubt Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election despite his repeated denials.
“Mr. Trump’s claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash,” Brennan wrote in an opinion piece published Thursday for the Times.
Will he be arrested for this?
