Rand Paul: Is Brennan getting paid to leak secrets to the media?

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said he will meet with President Donald Trump today and ask him to revoke ex-CIA director John Brennan‘s security clearance perhaps because the former spy chief is getting paid to leak secrets to the media.

Paul made no specific allegations against Brennan, but floated a hypothetical situation based on the possible conflict-of-interest presented by Brennan’s position as a senior national security and intelligence analyst for MSNBC, a vehemently anti-Trump network.

“Is John Brennan monetizing his security clearance?” Paul tweeted Monday morning. “Is John Brennan making millions of dollars divulging secrets to the mainstream media with his attacks on @realDonaldTrump ?”

Immediately following the insinuating tweet, Sen. Paul then announced his intention to ask President Trump to yank Brennan’s security clearance.

“Today I will meet with the President and I will ask him to revoke John Brennan’s security clearance!” he posted to Twitter.

Paul’s tweets follow news that the House Judiciary Committee would like to have a word with Brennan.

“We have lots of questions for John Brennan and he will definitely be sought by the committees for an interview,” Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said on Fox News Sunday. “This is an extremely disturbing thing to see both he and James Comey, supposedly impartial government officials carrying out their jobs in very important areas in intelligence gathering and law enforcement, express the kind of extreme bias that they’ve shown—which I think reflects quite accurately what they were doing back in 2016.”
