Helpful! James Clapper inadvertently spells out why John Brennan shouldn’t have a security clearance

Blind squirrels, nuts, etc.

Former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, is obviously no fan of Trump, but he was on to something here even if he didn’t mean to be:

Clapper described — perhaps inadvertently but perfectly — why axing Brennan’s security clearance was the right move: A former intel official who’s a super-partisan “freight train” of very public anger towards the president shouldn’t have a clearance. Barring proven “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s up to the voters to decide who should be president — not some rage-driven, bitter Deep State operative who’s pissed off that somebody’s pulling back the curtain the occasionally ugly inner workings of the federal government.
