Conservatives agree that President Trump should revoke the security clearances of those involved in the unfolding scandal regarding the Obama administration’s spying on people in the Trump campaign, according to a poll by FedUp PAC.
More than 98% say that “these people abused the powers of the offices they held” and should therefore lose their security clearances. Among those mentioned have been former CIA director John Brennan, former director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Agency director Michael Hayden, and former national security advisor Susan Rice.
Continuing investigations, especially by the House Intelligence Committee, have found evidence that the FBI, Department of Justice, and the intelligence agencies carried out a campaign of spying during and after the 2016 presidential campaign, hoping to prevent Trump’s election and then to undermine his ability to govern after his November 2016 victory.
Government officials such as those named above often are allowed to keep their security clearances when they leave the government, on the assumption that they may continue to serve as informal advisors. Given the strong hostility of the four mentioned, it seems unlikely that they would want to provide such assistance to the Trump administration and equally unlikely that they could be trusted. All have been outspoken and extreme opponents of President Trump.
FedUp PAC is a grass roots organization whose goal in 2018 is to save the Trump presidency by maintaining GOP control of Congress. FedUp PAC is working to reveal the Democrats as far-left, anti-American extremists who want to transform the United States into a bankrupt socialist nation such as Cuba or Venezuela. It is not affiliated with any candidate or committee.
