I joined Austria’s Radio FM4 on Thursday to review Donald Trump’s motives for stripping security clearance from former CIA Director John Brennan (pictured) — none of which have anything to do with US national security:
1. Trump’s concern over the Trump-Russia investigation
2. Trump’s anger at Brennan’s public criticism of him
3. Trump’s desire to cover up claims that he is a racist, fed in recent days by former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman
The chat also explains the process for security clearances in the US Government and the effect of Brennan losing his on consultations about national security.
