Obama Officials Stripped Security Clearance from Man Who Got Too Close to Anti-Trump Spy Ring


President Donald Trump has been massively attacked over security clearance being stripped from ex-CIA director John Brennan. However, when President Barack Obama’s appointees did something similar, there were crickets from the establishment media.

In the midst of the “Russian Collusion” investigation, evidence continues to come to light that there was indeed a conspiracy, but not by the Trump administration. Throughout, advisers, pundits, and the general public have urged Trump to take action such as firing Attorney General Sessions or revoking the security clearance of various people.

Although some have been outraged by Trump’s action and have even claimed “obstruction,” this is not the first security clearance stripped during his tenure. In fact, in May 2017, according to The Washington Times, Obama appointees stripped a Trump supporter of his clearance.

In a move that could be called “obstruction” by some, Pentagon Office of Net Assessment strategist Adam Lovinger “was stripped of his security clearance by Obama-appointed officials.” This came “after he complained of questionable government contracts to Stefan Halper, the FBI informant who spied on the Trump presidential campaign.”

They then “relegated him to clerical chores” in spite of his 12 years of work as a strategist. Lovinger’s attorney, Sean M. Bigley, told The Washington times that Lovinger had actually complained about the “Halper contracts in the fall of 2016.”
