Senator Rand Paul said that the Deep State ignored President Trump’s order last summer to revoke former CIA Chief John Brennan’s security clearance, and said, “People talk about the Deep State, now the Deep State’s actually protecting their own and not listening to the President’s orders.” The New York Times recently reported that John Brennan, a rabid Trump hater, still has his security clearance because the White House never followed through with the bureaucratic work it would have taken to strip the clearance.
