President Donald Trump has tweeted statements made by one of his biggest supporters, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, who wants him to revoke the security clearance of officials who served in the Obama administration.

The tweet read: ‘”I’d strip the whole bunch of them. They’re all corrupt. They’ve all abused their power. They’ve all betrayed the American people with a political agenda. They tried to steal and influence an election in the United States,” @seanhannity.’

Earlier on Wednesday, the White House announced that Trump had revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan.

Trump also tweeted a comment from supporter Joseph DiGenova, a former U.S. federal prosecutor who has gone on Fox News and accused the FBI of ‘framing’ the president.

DiGenova, a former U.S. federal prosecutor, has pushed conspiracy theories accusing the Justice Department of wrongly exonerating Hillary Clinton while using the Russia investigation as a ‘plot’ to hurt Trump.

Trump, who often tweets quotes from supporters word-for-word after they appear on Fox News, posted a quote from diGenova.

‘Hillary Clinton clearly got a pass by the FBI. We have the unfortunate situation where they then decided they were going to frame Donald Trump” concerning the Rigged Witch Hunt. JOE DIGENOVA, former U.S. Attorney,’ he wrote.

This is not the first time that diGenova has floated the conspiracy theory about the Justice Department’s alleged cover-up of Clinton’s crimes.

There was a brazen plot to illegally exonerate Hillary Clinton and, if she didn’t win the election, to then frame Donald Trump with a falsely created crime,’ diGenova told Fox News earlier this year.

‘Make no mistake about it: A group of F.B.I. and D.O.J. people were trying to frame Donald Trump of a falsely created crime,’ he said.

In March, diGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing, who is also an attorney, were reportedly on the verge of joining Trump’s legal team, but the appointment fell through.
