Rand Paul suspects someone revoked President Trump's order to have former CIA Director [perjurer and un-indicted 9/11 co-conspirator] John Brennan's security clearance revoked.

But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times in a report published last month...On CNN, Paul said the "deep state," in which federal or military officials defy a democratically elected government, was likely to blame. "Now the deep state is actually protecting their own and not listening to the president's orders," the Kentucky Republican said on Tuesday. "I was sitting in the White House when President Trump said I want his security clearance taken, and I saw the order given. I saw the chief of staff was there, not the current chief of staff, the previous chief of staff."
