INSTANT Classic: Nancy Pelosi doesn’t like Trump’s ‘partisanship’ in dealing with ex-intel officials shilling for The Resistance

Deep State comedy.

This week, Nancy Pelosi made this criticism of Trump for saying he wanted to revoke the security clearance of former intel officials like James Clapper, John Brennan and James Comey:

Somehow Pelosi managed to say that without being struck down by a lightning bolt from on high.

Heaven forbid political partisanship invade the untainted, unbiased and super-objective Deep State:

Nope, no partisanship there!

Also, did you know that former intel officials routinely get to keep their security clearances? Because I wasn’t aware of this:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Trump is “exploring” taking away the security clearances of a variety of former intelligence chiefs in light of their comments on the president’s claims on Russian interference, claiming officials are “politicizing” government agencies and “monetizing” their political offices.

Sanders told reporters that Mr. Trump is considering removing the clearances of Obama intelligence officials, including FBI Director James Comey, former CIA director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Director of National Security Agency Michael Hayden, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe.

Democrats are, of course, having a fit about that. But just imagine if Obama were president and there were former intelligence officials who worked under Bush going out on a daily basis saying the president should be removed from office — their clearances would have been yanked faster than you can say “if you like your plan you can keep it.”
