Former CIA director, John Brennan, has expressed his views on President Donald Trump revoking his security clearance.
Below are some of John Brennan’s noteworthy quotes on the matter.
“It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent.” – John Brennan, India, 16 August 2018
“I think Mr Trump is getting more and more concerned, more and more desperate and I would say more and more frightened, as there is closer and closer magnification of some of the things that those around him have been involved in. So I do think it’s important that I continue to speak out.” – John Brennan, Dayton Daily News, 16 August 2018
“This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out.” – John Brennan, Delco Times, 16 August 2018
