WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released the following statement after the White House announced President Donald Trump has revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan:

“I applaud President Trump for his revoking of John Brennan’s security clearance. I urged the President to do this. I filibustered Brennan’s nomination to head the CIA in 2013, and his behavior in government and out of it demonstrate why he should not be allowed near classified information. He participated in a shredding of constitutional rights, lied to Congress, and has been monetizing and making partisan political use of his clearance since his departure.”
