Trump challenges John Brennan to sue him over security clearances

President Trump responded in a Monday morning tweet to former CIA Director John Brennan's statement on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he would consider suing Trump to prevent him from revoking the security clearances of other former intelligence officials.

"I hope John Brennan, the worst CIA Director in our country’s history, brings a lawsuit. It will then be very easy to get all of his records, texts, emails and documents to show not only the poor job he did, but how he was involved with the Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt. He won’t sue!"
