Should he go to court and risk “shameful defeat?”

The Chicago Tribune article titled, Brennan, says he is willing to take Trump to court over security clearances, reports  his statement, “to prevent these abuses.”

Was Brenan’s freedom of speech violated by President Trump revocation of his security clearance, or was it because of a King Solomon wisdom proverb which explains a simple something else reason?

King Solomon

Just because you’ve seen something,
    don’t be in a hurry to go to court.
For what will you do in the end
if your neighbor deals you a shameful defeat? (Proverb 25:8)

What’s My Point?

I became curious about this latest news issue which is being blown up by a lot of news media and former government employees who now are being paid to be news commentators and pundits. So I looked up the official State Department Policy on security clearance. Here is one Excerpt statement.

Excerpt

“Access to classified information will be terminated when an individual no longer has need for access.”

In My Opinion

John Brennan has a Right to Free Speech to express his political opinions about President Trump.

President Trump as the authority to enforce State Department policy on security clearances..

Judgment and opinions are two different “worlds”.

You Decide

If this issue goes to court, and this policy is presented by President Trump, how would you judge the merits of John Brennan chances of winning when the judge asks him why he has a need for the information when he no longer is a government employee.

Is this a simple, or complicated, or a political issue being blown out of proportion by the mass media?

Is John Brennan wise or foolish to go to court? And if he loses, would it be a “shameful defeat?”

What would you do if you were President Trump?

Regards and good will blogging.
