“Do you believe that he has forfeited his professional courtesy by the frenzied rhetoric that he’s been exhibiting on cable TV and on Twitter?” asked co-host Jesse Watters.
“Here’s the bottom line,” said Pirro. “You’re not entitled to a security clearance. You don’t have a right to have it. The president has the arbitrary right to take it away.”
On Wednesday, President Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance and announced that several others, including James Clapper and James Comey, were under review. (RELATED: Tucker Eviscerates John Brennan On Security Clearance – ‘Not A Stable Man’)
“I have decided to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency,” said White House Press Secretary in a statement from President Trump. “Historically, former heads of intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been allowed to retain access to classified information after their government service so that they can consult with their successors regarding matters about which they may have special insight and as a professional courtesy. Neither of these justifications supports Mr. Brennan’s continued access to classified information.”
