Brennan Considers Legal Action         08/19 11:14

   BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) -- Former CIA Director John Brennan says he is 
considering taking legal action to try to prevent President Donald Trump from 
stripping other current and former officials' security clearances.

   Brennan said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he's been contacted by a 
number of lawyers about the basis of a potential complaint.

   Last week, Trump revoked Brennan's security clearance and threatened a long 
list of others, including critics and those connected to the Russia 
investigation.

   Brennan says he'll do whatever he can "to try to prevent these abuses in the 
future." He says, "If it means going to court, I will do that."

   More than 75 former intelligence officials have denounced Trump's decision 
to yank Brennan's clearance, saying they have a right to express their views 
without fear of punishment.
