Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper spoke about the possible White House decision to take away security clearance of former top Obama-era officials.
Clapper stated “Well, it’s interesting news. I’m reading it and learning about it just as you are. I think it’s, off the top of my head, a sad commentary—for political reasons—this is a petty way of retribution, I suppose, for speaking out against the president, which I think on the part of all of us, are borne out of genuine concerns about President Trump.”
“I think this is just a very, very petty thing to do and that’s about all I’ll say about it.”
