At 1053, POTUS is airborne bound for Joint Base Andrews.
Prior to boarding Marine 1, the president took questions from reporters for 5 minutes.
Quotes coming, put highlights:
- He never liked John Brennan, and why didnt Brennan say those things to the congressional committees earlier?
- He is probably going to take away Bruce Ohrs security clearance very quickly, and he is a disgrace because of his wife.
- He doesnt know Admiral McCraven, but hes gotten lots of praise for taking away security clearances, which he says are important to him.
- He will not talk about pardoning Paul Manafort, but it is very sad what happened to him and he is a good person.
More coming ASAP.
