Mark Warner: Trump Going After Security Clearances of Critics ‘Smacks of Nixonian-Type Practices’
WARNER: "These people were being singled out to have either their clearances revoked or in the process of being revoked to me smacks of nixonian practices, trying to fire anyone that is willing to criticize this president. That puts us in unchartered territory. I wonder if this president, again -- I thought there was a bit of an irony one of the reasons for taking away Brennan's clearance is erratic behavior. I wonder if the White House can look in the mirror on that question. I wonder if this precedence will lead to the president trying to take away Mueller and his whole team's security clearances, this is clearly another effort to silence critics and not allow the Mueller investigation and for that matter or Senate intelligence community investigation to get to the bottom of this."
