Yesterday, social media and the Democrat Party’s mainstream media outlets were ablaze with criticism for President Trump over his decision to revoke Obama’s former CIA director John Brennan’s security clearance. The rabidly anti-Trump John Brennan even tweeted about Trump’s decision, claiming his action “is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump (note, he doesn’t properly address him as “President” Trump) to suppress freedom of speech and punish critics.
Brennan’s comments are rich of course, as most Americans, even supporters of Barack Obama, are aware of the extraordinary measures Obama and his regime took during his presidency to silence their critics, even using the IRS as a tool to shut down conservative voices.
Brennan ended his tweet by saying his “principles” are worth “far more than clearances”, adding “I will not relent”.
This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent. https://t.co/TNzOxhP9ux

It looks like Brennan’s “principles” are about to be called into question…

According to the American Thinker, this may be a sign that the tide is turning and the cabal that conspired to fix the 2016 presidential election and then, when that failed, remove Trump from office is going to be exposed and ultimately held to account. As the Democrats and their media enablers bloviate about John Brennan’s imaginary First Amendment right to a perpetual security clearance, a statement of support for the president came from an unexpected source yesterday.
Lou Dobbs tweeted an official statement from establishment Republican Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina, on comments by Barack Obama’s former CIA director John Brennan:
Senate Intel Chairman, Richard Burr is defending President Trump. I believe this is a remarkable turn in the tides of Washington affairs and may well represent the beginning of the end of the Mueller Witch Hunt.

Lou Dobbs may be on to something in terms of the significance of this statement. Burr is highlighting a trap that Brennan is now caught in. As Clarice Feldman pointed out, Senator Burr is the chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) and a member of the Gang of Eight that gets access to the most secret documents. He is also a conspicuous member of the GOP establishment and until yesterday had been reticent in his approach to these Deep State scandals. Yet here he is, alluding to a trap that Brennan may be in.
Yesterday, President Trump acknowledged Lou Dobbs’ tweet with his own tweet supporting Dobbs’ tweet of Senator Burr’s official statement, confirming the Brennan trap:
