Former CIA director John Brennan, accused Trump of seeking to hush critics about his relationship with Russia. He also said he had spoken with lawyers about the revocation of his clearance. Brennan had cited evidence that President Trump colluded with Russians. He also accused the president of seeking to obstruct the investigation into Russia. President Trump, who has denied collision with Russia, and obstruction of the investigation against him, said he would consider yanking security clearances of other Barack Obama-era officials he says have made false statements about him and Russia. When Brennan said he had spoken with lawyers about the revocation of his clearance, Trump goaded him via twitter.
