60 former CIA officials defend Brennan in statement

Sixty former CIA officials signed a statement responding to Trump revoking John Brennan's security clearance.

"In a recent statement 15 senior former intelligence officials expressed their strong opposition to actual or threatened removal of security clearances from former government officials. All of us believe it is critical to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure. But we believe equally strongly that former government officials have the right to express their unclassified views on what they see as critical national security issues without fear of being punished for doing so. Our signatures below do not necessarily mean that we concur with the opinions expressed by former Director Brennan or the way in which he expressed them. What they do represent, however, is our firm belief that the country will be weakened if there is a political litmus test applied before seasoned experts are allowed to share their views."

So, it seems that the consensus among the intelligence community is that Trump is weakening our country... I mean, I knew, I think we all did, but to see it on paper... Damn.
