Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul urged President Trump to remove former national security adviser John Bolton’s security clearance in a Saturday morning tweet.
“No one, especially not John Bolton, should be able to use their security clearance for profit! I say revoke his clearance now @realDonaldTrump.”
— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) February 1, 2020
Those words were accompanied by a RealClearPolitics article detailing why Bolton’s security clearance could be in jeopardy once the impeachment trial has concluded. The article states that the removal of Bolton’s clearance is an “almost certainty,” according to two anonymous government officials.
The senator has been a staunch critic of Bolton’s foreign policy ideas, which the Kentucky senator has called “naive,” and he also criticized the former ambassador in a tweet a few days ago asking “Why didn’t John Bolton testify to the US House? Apparently his book wasn’t quite finished yet for presales!” Paul tweeted.
