Trump Threatens to Revoke Ex-CIA Official Phil Mudd's Security Clearance on Twitter After His Fiery CNN Debate with a Conservative Pundit
President Donald Trump raised the possibility that he may revoke another security clearance on Twitter in a petty and power-hungry rant post.
This time he is targeting Phil Mudd, a former CIA official and frequent Trump critic on CNN. Mudd feuded with conservative pundit Paris Dennard in a CNN segment of Friday. Dennard accused Mudd of profiting off his security clearance, which Mudd furiously denied.
"Just watched former Intelligence Official Phillip Mudd become totally unglued and weird while debating wonderful @PARISDENNARD over Brennan’s Security Clearance," Trump tweeted. "Dennard destroyed him but Mudd is in no mental condition to have such a Clearance. Should be REVOKED @seanhannity."
Last week, Trump rescinded the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan in an unprecedented politicization of the security clearance process.
