Retired Navy Special-Ops Commander Stands With Brennan: 'Revoke My Clearance' Too
The former head of the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command asked President Trump to revoke his security clearance so that he may show solidarity with ex-CIA Director John Brennan.
Trump revoked Brennan's security clearance earlier this week after the former bureaucrat repeatedly bashed him on national television and Twitter.
In a Washington Post op-ed, Retired Navy Rear Adm. William McRaven called Brennan "one of the finest public servants I have ever known."
"I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency," McRaven wrote.
McRaven said he initially had hope that Trump's presidency would be one marked by "good leadership," but said the New York Republican continues "embarrass" the United States.
He called Trump's tactics "McCarthy-era" and said he is trying to "suppress the voices of criticism."
McRaven is known as the commander who oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid that killed Usama bin Laden.
