Dem Rep Beyer: Revoking Brennan’s Security Clearance ‘Move Towards Authoritarianism’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Representative Don Beyer (D-VA) stated that the revocation of former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance is “a striking move towards authoritarianism.”

Beyer said, “[T]his is a striking move towards authoritarianism. You know, this is what dictators do. They shut down the press. They shut down dissent. They jail their opponents. Or in this case, they steal their security clearance. And it’s mean, it’s petty, and it’s ironic, given that Ivanka and Jared have security clearances, who were busy having secret meetings with Russians about hacking emails, as opposed to a patriot who served our country for all these years.”
