Donald Trump says Bruce Ohr next to lose security clearance

Former Intel Chiefs: White House Using Security Clearances As A 'Political Tool'

President Donald Trump said today that he suspects he'll "very quickly" revoke the security clearance for a Justice Department official whose wife worked for the firm involved in producing a dossier on Trump's ties to Russian Federation. Bruce Ohr may be his next target.

Lemon further accused Trump of revoking Brennan's security clearance as a way to "silence" a heavy critic.

Experts have described Trump's move as an unprecedented effort to silence prominent detractors, with some likening it to Sen.

Mr. Ohr's wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for Fusion GPS, the company paid by Democrats to dig up dirt on Mr. Trump, including hiring Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the controversial dossier.

Brennan is the first former national security official to see his security clearance revoked since the White House announced last month that Trump was considering taking that action against several of his most vocal critics in the national security world. "For him to be in the Justice Department and doing what he did, that is a disgrace". Ohr knows the co-founder of Fusion GPS-the firm hired by the Clinton campaign to do opposition research on Trump, according to CBS.

In a statement, ex-CIA bosses appointed by Republican and Democratic presidents - including Robert Gates, George Tenet, Porter Goss, Leon Panetta and David Petraeus - denounced Trump's decision to strip Brennan of his security clearance.

Brennan agreed that the word isn't presidential and that it "means something different" when it's used against a woman of color. She accused the president of using his rowdy political rallies to sow discord, even suggesting Trump is promoting violence.

Ramos hits back at Klopp over comments following Champions League final
And yet here we are, still banging on about what happened between Sergio Ramos and Mo Salah in the Champions League final . It later emerged that the hard-hitting defender also left goalkeeper Loris Karius during a clash between the pair.

On Friday, Trump said he would likely remove the security clearance of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, who has been targeted by Trump supporters, in part because his wife worked for a company that produced a dossier alleging Russian Federation had incriminating evidence against the now president. Writing in The Washington Post, William H. McRaven said he would "consider it an honor" if Trump would revoke his clearance, as well.

Trump defended his move on Brennan on Wednesday, saying it had elevated the former Central Intelligence Agency chief rather than hampered his freedom of speech.

Trump later said that he stripped Brennan's clearance because of his role in investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. "I don't trust many of those people on that list", Trump said.

The signees included seven former CIA directors, six former CIA deputy directors and two former national intelligence directors, James Clapper and retired Navy Admiral Denny Blair.

Trump also lashed out at Mueller, saying former FBI Director James Comey was the special counsel's "best friend". "I think that they're very duplicitous".

Trump's comments, made to reporters as he boarded Marine One en route to a Republican campaign event in NY, came amid rising criticism of the president for using security clearances as a political tool.
