White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the decision to pull Brennan's clearance at a briefing on Wednesday, reading a statement from Trump that accused Brennan of making "a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations - wild outbursts on the internet and television - about this Administration".

Mr. Trump, speaking to reporters on the White House South Lawn, said the official, Bruce Ohr, is a "disgrace".

The letter reads in part, "The evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump's presidential campaign continues to mount and has led Michael Morrell, the former Acting Central Intelligence Director, to call Trump an "unwitting agent" of Russia and the Kremlin".

But he said he became anxious when one of her friends contacted him around noon and said Shanann wasn't responding to messages. The friend was supposed to meet back up with Watts after they both got some rest but Watts didn't answer her phone.

"So I think it's something that had to be done", he said. On Friday, Trump said he planned to take Bruce Ohr's security clearance "very quickly". Joseph McCarthy's anti-communist crusade in the 1950s or President Richard M. Nixon's targeting of critics on his "enemies list". "I can just tell you we're looking into that specific matter".

The White House announced Thursday that it was revoking the former Central Intelligence Agency director's clearance because of what press secretary Sarah Sanders called "unfounded and outrageous allegations".

"If Brennan is to be faulted for anything, I don't think it is engendering a conspiracy against Trump, but failing as a major intelligence official to advocate a tough, firm, active policy against Russian measures to meddle with our elections", Rove said.

Early this month, he admitted in a tweet that the Trump Tower meeting, which was arranged by his son, Donald Trump Jr., "was a meeting to get information on an opponent".
