Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) put President Trump on notice. According to Paul, Trump needs to remove Former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s security clearance as soon as possible.
In a fiery tweet, Senator Paul said, “No one, especially not John Bolton, should be able to use their security clearance for profit! I say revoke his clearance now.”
John Bolton is currently readying to release a book about his time in the White House.
Bolton’s book is suspected to contain classified information. The Trump administration is fighting the book’s release as is.
Regardless of the ongoing politics with the Trump administration, Bolton needs his clearance revoked. He’s proved himself to be a shameless publicity hound that’s more interested in his career than serving his country.
It’s a move that makes sense for the Trump administration. Bolton singlehandedly extended the impeachment trial by two weeks and is a thorn in Trump’s side. If he’s going to be leaking to the media, he shouldn’t have a clearance.
