Obama Security Clearance at Risk?

By

Obama can rest easy.

President Trump debunked claims by the fake news media that he was going to pull Obama’s security clearance. Trump said he “never” even thought of the idea.

From usatoday.com

WASHINGTON – While conducting a rhetorical war with members of Barack Obama’s administration, President Donald Trump said Tuesday he is not reviewing the national security clearance of the former president himself.

“Never discusses or thought of,” Trump said in a tweet.

Trump made the claim while decrying a New Yorker article that he said “falsely reported that I was going to take the extraordinary step of denying Intelligence Briefings to President Obama.”

The article focused on the conflict between Trump and former CIA Director John Brennan, who has accused Trump of acting improperly on issues ranging from Russia to his criticism of Obama. Brennan has also accused Trump of colluding with Russians who sought to influence the 2016 election by hacking Democrats.

What do you think folks? Should Obama keep his security clearance?
