Tucker Eviscerates John Brennan On Security Clearance — ‘Not A Stable Man’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Thursday ripped anti-Trump former CIA Director John Brennan, an “out of the closet extremist” who still apparently has a “top secret security clearance,” according to two “Tucker Carlson Tonight” sources.


Calling him a “cable news shouter” and “paid” MSNBC analyst who “insults Donald Trump and advocates for the Democratic Party,” Carlson noted that although Brennan is no longer a government employee, he retains “perhaps the most valuable asset he had in government, a top secret security clearance.”

“This is an awesome power,” said Carlson. “Our intelligence agencies keep America’s most sensitive secrets. They hold highly personal information on every American, including you. It is terrifying to think that John Brennan still has access to any of this. Brennan is an out of the closet extremist. This week he accused Donald Trump of treason, a death penalty offense. On Tuesday, he suggested it would be reasonable for the intelligence agencies to conceal information from the president. That’s a violation of their charter and a violation federal law.”

He also makes “florid threats,” like the below, “directly to the president.”

“Not a stable man,” said the Daily Caller founder, adding that Brennan “is also a passionate ideologue with a documented history of dishonestly.” (RELATED: Sen. Rand Paul Goes After John Brennan After He Calls Trump ‘Treasonous’)

“And not just a little bit, a lot. As CIA director, he lied about spying on senate staffers and killing civilians with drone strikes. He lied about the Steele dossier famously. In 2010, he prevented the CIA from referring to Islamic militants as ‘jihadists’ because, and we’re quoting now, ‘jihad is a holy struggle and a legitimate tenet of Islam.’ This is not a man who should have a security clearance. We called NBC news today to ask if Brennan has revealed classified information on their air or passed it to his colleagues at NBC. NBC did not respond.”

“You hate to think the deep state is real, that there’s a permanent government that operates independently of voters and of democracy itself,” Tucker concluded. “But as long as guys like this have security clearances, honestly you’ve got to wonder.”
