Executive Oder #12968, 2.1(b)4, gives the CEO, the authority to grant and revoke clearance for access to confidential information. The Chief Executive Officer is President Trump… no further debate!
When the President believes there is no value to the United States for anyone to retain their clearance, except for personal gain or interfering with Foreign Affairs of the US, or if the President believes a retiree is abusing their access, he can and should revoke that clearance.
In fact, the President could, by another executive order, automatically revoke the clearance of all former government employees, when they leave government service and order that they must petition the President if they believe their continued clearance is essential to the United States, which I personally believe is the way it should be.
Why does Hillary Clinton or Bill or Hussein Obama or John Kerry or Clapper need clearance for access to classified information? [Trump revoked John Brennan’s clearance in 2018.]
The President can allow it on a case by case basis and solve a whole lot of problems.
The only reason most want to retain their clearance is that they can put it on their resume, to get high paying jobs with News Media, so they can use that valuable resource to their personal benefit and at the risk to the US!
Why allow it?
If the President wants a retiring employee to keep it as the President feels that individual will provide advice to the Office of the President, then grant the continuation…otherwise revoke all!
The President should revoke ANY clearance Congressman Schiff has been granted!
Understand, even though Adam Schiff believes he can walk on water, and not fall in … he can’t. He is not exempt from being arrested for violating the law, he is not given any Security Clearance when elected as a Congressman, just because he was elected. The only elected official in the United States exempt from arrest is… you guessed it…the President.
Fact is, although it’s probably never been done…the President could, himself, issue a warrant for Schiff’s arrest or just direct the Marshals to “lock him up”…what about due process, you ask, apparently Schiff did away with it?!
Congressmen do not automatically receive Secret Clearances and those who do receive clearance and then either lie or leak or lie about leaking ANY information, prove themselves to be untrustworthy and must have their clearance revoked.
Congressman Schiff has proven repeatedly that he cannot be trusted not to leak anything that should not be leaked… enough is enough…stop Schiff from being a lose gun and putting our Nation’s security into his untrustworthy hands!
That would also remove him from any Committees requiring clearance. Let him go to court, he has no standing. His clearance depends on the CEO which is NOT Nancy, tear it up, Pelosi!
This is not a political game, that people like Schumer, Pelosi, Nadler and Schiff play… this is the Security of America that these people use like a pawn in a game of chess. Put a stop to it by revoking Security Clearance, that will also keep these untrustworthy elected officials out of secret conferences at the White House.
When the President has reason to believe that someone has leaked info…put them on the box (lie detector) …if they refuse then revoke…simple!
If the President believes John Kerry and Sen Murphy should not have traveled to Iran and met with government officials, revoke their clearances and CHARGE THEM with the Logan Act violations …don’t just talk about it…do it, Mr President, you are the Chief Lawman, tell Barr to do it!!
Pass an Executive Order now, retroactive to all former employees, to cancel all (including former Presidents) clearances immediately unless the current President believes it should be continued, on an individual basis.
Gary, I couldn’t agree with you more. In the military, there were two criteria for being able to have access to classified information, the proper security clearance and the need to know. For example, I had a top secret clearance and had access to nuclear propulsion information, because that was my job, but that did not give me authorization to know classified information about nuclear weapons, because that was not my job. When I left the Navy, there was not a need to know information about classified nuclear propulsion or nuclear weapons. This is even more true of the slimy politicians.
Trump is the MAN
HARVEY WEINSTEIN GUILTY IN SEX ASSAULT CASE!
Mr. J Gary DiLaura,
I fully respect your the service you provided our country by serving in the FBI. FBI agents put in a godly amount of hours of uncompensated work, FBI agents are salaried employees, who if their pay was broken-down to an hourly wage…agents get paid jack.
Mr, DiLaura could you please provide me with one piece of irrefutable evidence?
The Bernie Sander’s camp claim the journalists/media, establishment, and Hillary Clinton are working in a massive conspiracy against Bernie Sanders. They claim that “fake news” is making Bernie seem like a communist. Meanwhile Bernie has always spoken fondly of Communist countries.
Is the mainstream media against Bernie Sanders as well?
“Is the mainstream media against Bernie Sanders as well?”
Because they believe that Bernie Sanders can’t win and he will only reelect Trump.
And they might be right.
They claim it’s because Bernie Sanders is going to reveal the corruption of the deep state. Mr. Shadow, you can’t have it both ways.
Historically, when the Communists took over a country, they replaced Capitalist corruption with Communist corruption.
In World War I, the Allies signed the Sykes-Picot Agreement dividing the Middle East and Eastern Europe among the Western Powers.
After the Bolshevik Revolution, the Communist Trotsky revealed the Allies’ devious agreement to divide up the world.
But, ultimately, the Communists created their own agreements dividing up the world.
Stalin, who had Trotsky murdered, even divided up Eastern Europe with Nazi Germany.
If Bernie is elected and replaces the Deep State, he will replace it with a new Deep State more to the liking of Anti-Fa.
The same way the Tsarist Secret Police, the Okhrana were replaced with the Communist Secret Police, the Cheka.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
The mainstream media is against Crazy Bernie because he is open and honest about the Democrat party’s positions. They want to sneak in the liberal agenda through the back/side door because they know that walking in the front door like Crazy Bernie is doing would expose their true intentions and they know that approach is bound to fail.
NICE GUY 3.0, I’m not sure I understand your question. If it’s evidence that Hillary has mounted a campaign against Sanders, just look online at the contract she signed with the DNC, 9 months before the last Dem National Convention! She took complete control of the disbursement of ALL DNC money contributed to the DNC…what candidate should get money…hmmm? Who do you think she chose? But understand this, Nice Guy, Bernie Sanders will NEVER, EVER become President of the US. He is a Communist at the extreme and an ADMITTED Socialist in the least. Do you fully understand the difference between a Socialist US and a Constitutional Republic America? If you support Bernie…you do not! Do your own research… Constitutional Republic vs Socialist…you won’t like the difference and you can’t have both because there is no guarantee of any Rights( Constitution) in a Socialist State. Your only Rights are those “given” to you by the Ruling, elected party…don’t let anybody tell you different! The Right Side
A Socialist United States would be a nightmare like Sweden.
A Communist United States would be a complete disaster like the Soviet Union.
Many of Bernie’s supporters long for a return to Labor Camps like the old Soviet Gulag.
Many of Bernie’s supporters are members of Communist and Anti-Fa groups..
Only Bernie’s Labor Camps will be called Reeducation Camps.
NiceGuy should read Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago.

“Milwaukee Will Burn” * Sanders Staffer Threats Of Violence
Pull the butt-plug out of your ass and listen to me!
I have only ridiculed Bernie Sanders! You got that, Mr. Cankle lover? Now go back to whatever it is you do, when you’re not day dreaming about Allison Mack and tub of peanut butter.
99% of life we can agree on:
I believe in life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, the United States Bill of rights, and the Ten Commandments. Sincerely, those 5 things shape my core beliefs. If you don’t believe in those principles, then you’re not an American.
—He is a Communist at the extreme and an ADMITTED Socialist in the least.
I agree 100%!!!!
—Do you fully understand the difference between the Socialist US and a Constitutional Republic America?
Yes, I know the difference. It’s why my dad volunteered before he was drafted to go to Vietnam.
—Constitutional Republic vs Socialist…you won’t like the difference and you can’t have both because there is no guarantee of any Rights( Constitution) in a Socialist State.
I hate communism more than I hate fascism!
Bernie Sanders is a danger to everything I believe in and is dear to my heart. He is a bigger threat than China, Islam, or the Russians.
Bernie Sanders is an existential threat to America!
I can not believe FOX has not mentioned Bernie’s Corporate Accountability and Democracy. It’s pure communism!
Go to Bernie “Commie” Sanders site: link below.
Corporate Accountability and Democracy is unconstitutional!
Keep in mind Berne chose $100 million;
to appeal to the masses. It’s 100 million today and could be 10 million or as little as 1 million tomorrow. Get my point?
Thank you for pointing me in the direction where I can find more information. I appreciate your time.
Fox has announced they will soon be doing an in-depth review of Crazy Bernie’s views.
Thank God!!! Sanders needs to be exposed before the Democratic Party Primaries Super Tuesday!!!!
