White House national security adviser John Bolton on Sunday suggested that former CIA director John Brennan might have released classified information, but acknowledged that he isn’t certain Brennan did so.

Bolton said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” that he is “very troubled” by the conduct of Brennan, a frequent critic of President Trump who lost his security clearance last week. President Trump said he was protecting the nation’s classified information in announcing that he was revoking Brennan’s security clearance.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I think a number of people have commented that he couldn’t be in the position he’s in of criticizing President Trump and his so-called collusion with Russia unless he did use classified information,” Bolton said. “But I don’t know the specifics.”

  1. I really don’t believe that a person in the intelligence community needs to have a security clearance once they leave office. They don’t need access to anything once they leave office and if their “expertise” is needed later then they should have the security investigation done to give them a short term clearance that is terminated after their help is finished. To be honest if an expert has to be called back into the intellegence community then that, to me shows that the intelligence community isn’t really that intelligent. When a person leaves the office it would stand to reason that there are still others that they worked with that are just as knowledgable about the situation that should be able to do the job, if not then there is something wrong. If there isn’t someone to step into the shoes of the person that left with the same knowledge then that would mean that the person leaving was keeping information to themselves, not sharing with higher ups or anyone else that should know that information.

    It doesn’t matter if the person retires, quits or is fired they don’t need to continue to have access to any information that isn’t public knowledge.
