Mark Levin weighs in on 'Hannity' after Trump revokes John Brennan's security clearance. He asked how did a communist like John Brennan get one to begin with. Levin said the media called Trump's move partisan. However, other people Trump is considering revoking clearances from are Republicans such as James Comey.
"Who else is the president looking at? Comey and people who are keeping score, Comey is a Republican. How many times have people told the media, Mueller is a Republican, Comey is a Republican, and even they question the president! OK, you got a Republican," Levin said.
Levin said the group did nothing to stop Russian interference even when they had their clearances.
"Meanwhile, when they were in office, when they had their security clearances, when they had power, they didn't stop the Russians, they didn't stop the red Chinese, they didn't stop the North Koreans, they funded the Iranians, and, in fact, they are responsible for the greatest scandal in American history by interfering with our election and trying to undermine the Trump campaign," he said.
Levin also noted that former DNI James Clapper committed perjury to a Senate committee.
"James Clapper committed perjury. He lied to the American people and Senator Wyden and that committee a long time ago, his security clearance should have been pulled," he said.
From Wednesday's Hannity:
SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Joining us now is the host of CRTV's Levin TV, the host of Life, Liberty, and Levin, Sunday night right here on the Fox News Channel. Number one in the slot. I called him the great one Mark Levin.
Mark, we have never had a former communist who literally we now know spread Russian lies to misinform, propagandize the American people to impact a presidential election either. These are unprecedented times.
MARK LEVIN, FOX NEWS HOST: Let's see if we can unravel this from the fabulously stupid Omarosa media.
First of all, apparently the fact that Brennan voted for a Stalinist who was funded by the Soviets, a communist party USA was very attractive to Barack Obama who made him CIA director. Think about that.
So how did this man ever get a security clearance? I'm curious about this.
Now, a couple of things. The president is, looking at Brennan, he revokes his security privilege. Professor Dershowitz needs to know that's a privilege. That's not a right to security privilege.
The fact to the matter is, nobody is stopping Brennan from speaking. In fact, nobody could stop. He has a big mouth, he will never shut up, he'll go on TV and be the kook that he is.
The idea that he has a right to access to information because he served in the Obama administration at the CIA is a preposterous argument, but of course the ACLU will take it up the case because they take up a lot of stupid cases. That's number one.
Number two, who else is the president looking at? Comey and people who are keeping score, Comey is a Republican. How many times have people told the media, Mueller is a Republican, Comey is a Republican, and even they question the president! OK, you got a Republican.
And by the way, for the media, most of these people the president are looking at are white. I know that's very important to you.
Now Comey was fired at the recommendation of Rosenstein. Comey was a leaker and he absconded with government documents when he left. His security clearance should be pulled. McCabe is under criminal investigation, the number two from the FBI.
Never before in history, media, his security clearance should be pulled! Peter Strzok was just fired. The guy in charge of counterintelligence investigations for misconduct, his security should be pulled!
James Clapper committed perjury. He lied to the American people and Senator Wyden and that committee a long time ago, his security clearance should have been pulled.
Bruce Ohr, another one. Pulled! Yates, another one, not because the president has a problem with Democrats or liberals, he has a problem with these people. And we haven't even got to the unmasking issue yet. So this is not a First Amendment issue.
Meanwhile -- meanwhile! When these people have security clearances, what the hell did they do with them? Well, let's take a look. The Russians interfered in our election, right? Well, who was president, who was head of the CIA, who was national security advisor, who was the head of the FBI? All of these people with their security clearances in position to power did nothing effective to stop the Russians from interfering in our election.
They did nothing to stop China from stealing our technology. They did nothing to stop North Korea's nuclear program. And even worse, they awarded the Islam -- hold it, Mark, the terrorist regime in Tehran with $150 billion, right? With $150 billion and provided them with a pathway to nuclear weapons.
Good job, boys and girl in the Obama administration with your security clearances. The fact that Obama appointed these people and gave them security clearances, it's not the obligation of this president to let them retain their security clearances. There is no constitutional issue. That's just nonsense. And again, one of them is a Republican. So that makes this all OK.
HANNITY: Mark, I would take away all of their clearances.
LEVIN: I would take away all of their clearances too. But the fact of the matter is we really need to focus in on the conduct of these individuals. Look at the phony media and the arguments they are making.
This is like a dictatorship. This is -- this is -- and we've never seen anything like this before. All these blabbermouths who know nothing, you are going to see Clapper on TV until you throw up on your loafers.
You are going to see Comey he had his book thing, you are going to see Brennan all over the place, all these phony victims and so forth and so on.
Meanwhile, when they were in office, when they had their security clearances, when they had power, they didn't stop the Russians, they didn't stop the red Chinese, they didn't stop the North Koreans, they funded the Iranians, and, in fact, they are responsible for the greatest scandal in American history by interfering with our election and trying to undermine the Trump campaign.
HANNITY: And the Trump presidency. I think we got to remember, hold on, Mark and throw off all my loafers. But more importantly, that's what we call you the great one. Great commentary, Mark Levin. Thank you.
