Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul put a lot of on the line this week and dropped a bomb on national television about the Obama Deep State.

During an interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar, Paul reacted to reports that former CIA Director John Brennan has not had his security clearance revoked as President Donald Trump ordered.

Trump ordered Brennan to have his security clearance revoked because he played a big role in Russian collusion conspiracy theories as the CIA director and leaked anti-Trump info to the media.

Paul argued that Obama’s Deep State loyalists are protecting their own and refusing to carry out an order given by Trump.

Keilar asked: “What do you think about this recent New York Times story that Brennan still has his security clearance? This was such a big, I guess, promise of the president, demand of the president. He said he was going to pull it, and he still that is.”

Paul was not happy about that and said it greatly concerned him that Deep State loyalists are undermining Trump to protect Brennan.

Well, this is what worries me. People talk about the Deep State. Now, the Deep State is actually protecting their own and not listening to the president’s orders.

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 current chief of staff, the previous chief of staff.

And if they are working against the odds of the president, that really does disrupt our country, does disrupt a representative democracy where the president makes a decision, and if someone is countermanding that, I think we need to get to the bottom of that. And I hope President Trump will say, who is countermanding my orders. I said get rid of his clearance.

And I do think Brennan has been a partisan. And I think Brennan also abused his office in developing the Trump investigation. I think it was done under false pretenses and done for political reasons.

Trump had every right to pull Brennan’s clearance given the things he was saying on national television.

VOTER POLL: Should Obama Be Arrested For Illegally Spying On Trump?

Brennan was one of the most ardent forces from the very beginning pushing the Trump-Russia collusion theories, and he reportedly played a big role in elevating the Clinton-funded dossier to the highest levels of the government prior to the 2016 presidential election.

Brennan has also been accused of leaking classified information to CNN, where he often makes appearances to attack Trump.

Aside from Brennan’s long history of leaking, this is a common theme in the Trump administration.

Trump will give orders and unelected bureaucrats, many of which are Obama supporters, will ignore them.

This must stop.
