Schiff Attacks Trump’s Decisions

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) claims the White House’s statement about removing former CIA Director John Brennan’s and other former officials security clearance is “exactly what you see in authoritarian regimes.”

Schiff stated, “Today’s action, suggesting that we will punish critics of the president by stripping them of their security clearance, that is not what you see in a democracy. That is exactly what you see in authoritarian regimes.”

He called the potential plan  a “despicable action…to try to silence critics,” and the “cowardly action of someone who is afraid of criticism.”
