Trump suggests Clapper is "being nice" to keep his security clearance

“Even James Clapper has admonished John Brennan for having gone totally off the rails,” Trump said.

“Maybe Clapper is being nice to me so he doesn’t lose his Security Clearance for lying to Congress!” the president continued…

Clapper … said on Sunday that he thought Brennan’s rhetoric was becoming an “issue.”

“John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself,” Clapper said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “John is subtle like a freight train and he’s gonna say what’s on his mind.”
