CNN FBI analyst Philip Mudd has a history of melting down over comments and actions made by President Trump. Mudd also still has a security clearance which he uses for monetary gain. In an appearance on CNN the other night Mudd sparred with Analyst and Trump supporter Paris Dennard. Mudd lost control and tempers flared when Dennard called him out for earning money off of his clearance.
“Twenty-five years in the service and this is the sh*t I get!” Mudd yelled. “Get out!”
And it did not take long for President Trump to weigh in on the tussle. The president tweeted, “Just watched former Intelligence Official Phillip Mudd become totally unglued and weird while debating wonderful Paris Dennard over Brennan’s Security Clearance,” Trump tweeted. “Dennard destroyed him but Mudd is in no mental condition to have such a Clearance. Should be REVOKED?”
