What the fuck is she doing?!!

Releasing recordings of Trump, Kelly...

It's like she's jumping up and down screaming "ARREST ME!! ARREST ME!!"

For once, Trump may have tweeted the truth.

Omarosa really is a moron!


She's selling a lot of books.

I have no doubt about that.

But it's just more distraction.

You mentioned this in passing somewhere...

Anyway, I guess this will be the next book...

US President Donald Trump has revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, accusing him of using his access to classified information to "sow division and chaos" about the Trump administration.

Key points:

  • Donald Trump is also reviewing security clearances of other former officials
  • John Brennan has been a sharp critic of Mr Trump
  • He took to Twitter after the decision to say it was an effort to "suppress freedom of speech and punish critics"

Mr Trump announced the decision in a statement read by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders at her daily news briefing.

Mr Trump said he was also reviewing the security clearances of several other former ranking government officials, all of whom have criticised Mr Trump, including former US national intelligence director James Clapper, former FBI director James Comey, former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice, and former deputy attorney-general Sally Yates, among others.

Mr Brennan, who was director of the CIA under Mr Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, has been a sharp critic of Mr Trump, frequently appearing on cable television news shows to attack his foreign policy positions.

Mr Trump's statement said Mr Brennan had engaged in "increasingly frenzied commentary" and abused his access to classified information by using it to "sow division and chaos".

"At this point in my administration, any benefits that senior officials might glean from consultations with Mr Brennan are now outweighed by the risks posed by his erratic conduct and behaviour," Mr Trump said.

"That conduct and behaviour has tested and far exceeded the limits of any professional courtesy that has been due to him."

A spokesman for Mr Brennan declined to immediately comment, but Mr Brennan took to Twitter himself to criticise the decision as an effort to "suppress freedom of speech and punish critics".

Democrats are also lining up to denounce Mr Trump's decision, with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi calling the move "a stunning abuse of power".

Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, warned a "dangerous precedent" was being set.

But Ms Sanders defended the decision, saying Mr Brennan had been making "unfounded and outrageous allegations" against the administration.

Mr Brennan called Mr Trump's behaviour at a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin "nothing short of treasonous."

Senator Chris Van Hollen of Maryland said of Mr Trump: "Leaders behave like this in dictatorships, not democracies."
