Former CIA and FBI official Philip Mudd, who is also an analyst for CNN, debated pro-Trump commentator Paris Dennard. The debate was over whether Trump was revoking security clearances to punish his political enemies. The debate came a week after Trump announced the revocation of former CIA director John Brennan’s clearance. Mudd became visibly angry when Dennard accused officials such as him of profiting from their clearances. After watching the debate, Trump went to twitter to ask followers if his clearance should be revoked.
