McRaven Asks Trump to Revoke His Security Clearance

Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him. Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.

— William McRaven, who oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden, wrote an open letter to President Trump in the Washington Post.
