Back in the "old days"

they cut your tongue out....

Now TheRUMP removes your security clearance.

It's just like a fight in schoolyard/playground.

I don't know if I want it to end.....

I enjoy the late night comics and their sense of humoUr on the subject.

I'm not sure of your point.

Why not just terminate the "disloyal"? Clearance gets pulled then, anyway.
No link. You sure they AREN'T cutting tongues???

Clearance gets pulled?....

I'm not sure about that...The talking heads on the boob tube say that people in power WITH security clearances are known to have conversations(looking for information on security subjects) from people that were formerly in positions of power.

I think they have been keeping the security clearance even after retirement/termination....

Both parties must have security clearance for one side to pump the other for info on how things were done in the past.

First, note that it's 'a threat', from someone to whom the threat is a medium of exchange. And mother's milk.
Second, Reuters itself, in an op-ed, recently pointed out several things Congress could be doing to push back at several Trump 'offenses'. It isn't David and Goliath - unless David agrees.
Third, Congress is not doing those things. Happy
Fourth, the article says there are "accusations that he was abusing his power and aiming to stifle dissent." Accusations??? Whadda these guys, stoopid??? People in power _always_ act in more or less abusive ways to expand and preserve that power. Giggle FDR.
Fifth, Reuters are experts at reporting these things. https://mobile.reuters.com/subjects/myanmar-reporters

Say, that Susan Rice is kinda cute ...
