MSNBC: Trump Feels Emboldened After Stripping Brennan’s Clearance
GEIST: "Let's get right into this and some new reporting from 'The Washington Post' that President Trump feels emboldened by stripping ex-CIA director John Brennan of his security clearance. Trump believes he’s emerged looking strong and decisive in his escalating feud with Brennan, two aides are telling 'The Post.' Adding, 'The President shows a visceral disdain for the former CIA director when he sees him on television.' White House officials say Trump did not focus on his power to remove clearances until this summer. White House aides confirm that Trump made his decision weeks ago about Brennan who serves as an MSNBC contributor."
