Trump revokes former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance

Security clearance doesnt automatically mean you are entitled to classified information. It is on a need to know basis. Someone with a Top Secret security clearance isn't automatically entitled to any Top Secret information they want. It's all based on what is needed for your job.

While unethical and fucked up, those folks not having their TS will at most impede future job searches. That's fucked up, yes I know, but lots of people around here are under a different impression of security clearance than is reality.

Comey could not just walk in somewhere and access information requiring a TS/SCI without demonstrable need of doing such, like working for the govt.

That said, it is fucking scary that Trump has a say in all of this. What a shit show.
