While the deep state continues to rant and rage on over John Brennan having lost his security clearance and the threat of their clearances being pulled, they and their media sock puppets are counting on the stupidity of viewers.
CNN paid commentator said he didn’t monetize his security clearance while arguing with Trump supporter — then he cursed at him https://t.co/DN8e1otVQf

All are attempting to lie, bully and spin their way back from a nation’s newfound revelations that after leaving the federal government, profiteers are able to shop U. S. intelligence throughout the globe because they retain security clearance.
Swamp Critters “doth protest too much, me thinks.”
Enter that bitter, NeverTrumper/war monger, Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, who this morning referred to Fox News anchors as “prostitutes.”

I urge you to read Uriel’s article in its entirety, For those unsure, it’s an eye opener.
