On Friday, Trump said he would likely remove the security clearance of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, who has been targeted by Trump supporters, in part because his wife worked for a company that produced a dossier alleging Russian Federation had incriminating evidence against the now president.
Trump's admission that he acted out of frustration about the Russian Federation probe underscored his willingness to use his executive power to fight back against an investigation he sees as a threat to his presidency.
Brennan has repeatedly clashed with Trump on Twitter and on television, calling Trump's failure to denounce Russian interference in USA elections at a recent summit with Vladimir Putin "nothing short of treasonous".
As Hill Reporter covered yesterday, legal analysts say that a president getting involved in the process of revoking security clearances, especially without going through the usual channels, is utterly unprecedented, and could result in legal battles to determine whether Trump actually has that power.
In his letter, McRaven praised Brennan as "one of the finest public servants I have ever known".
"I think right now, this country is in a crisis in terms of what Mr. Trump has done and is liable to do", Brennan told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
"By issuing such a statement, Mr. Trump was not only encouraging a foreign nation to collect intelligence against a United States citizen, but also openly authorizing his followers to work with our primary global adversary against his political opponent", Brennan wrote.
"It's a disgusting thing, frankly", he said. "They can't take our people".

In another development, the former U.S. Navy admiral who led the operation to kill terrorist leader Osama bin Laden is challenging Trump to revoke his security clearance.
Former Army Ranger, Benghazi hero and survivor Kris "Tonto" Paranto took to Twitter this week to slam former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan after President Trump pulled his security clearance.
Trump called Ohr a "disgrace" outside the White House and said, "I suspect I will be taking it away very quickly".
Two of those who signed the statement - former director of national intelligence James Clapper and former CIA director Michael Hayden - are, according to Trump, on a list of people who could lose their clearance.

The investigation also prompted the dioceses to publish lists, for the first time , of priests accused of sexual misconduct. Additionally, future agreements should state contact with police about criminal activity is permitted.
Omarosa has now viciously turned on the president and is making the rounds of liberal media to promote her new tell-all book. It might not exist and he may have never said it but I think it's safe to mark this down in the "imminent release" column.
Trump has tweeted about to highlight his assertions of political bias behind the Russian Federation investigation. He said he was fine with giving Brennan a bigger voice because he enjoyed tackling with critics.
The bout is priced very similarly to a potential Anthony Joshua fight with Fury available at EVENS and Joshua at 4/5. An announcement could come as soon as that point, but if not, it is likely to be confirmed in the days following.
