"I think he's trolling people, honestly. This is something that's in the purview of the executive branch. I think some of these people have already lost their clearances. Some people keep their clearances. That's something that the executive branch deals with. That's not really in our purview. ... I think he's just trolling people."

US President Donald Trump arrives in Britain on July 11th 2018 - and straight into a storm of protests.
Anti-Trump demonstrators have vowed to track him every step of the way.
One of the most eye-catching initiatives will be a giant inflatable balloon, or blimp, which has been named Trump Baby.
The blimp will be flown over Parliament Square Gardens in London's Westminster on July 13th.
Footage captured ahead of Trump's visit shows organisers inflating the blimp, which caricatures the American president as an angry, orange baby, complete with a snarling face and nappy, with a tiny hand clutching a mobile phone for tweeting.
Organisers say that they've sought to portray Trump as he's seen by his critics.
Thousands of demonstrators marched in central London on July 13th to protest against Donald Trump's first visit to the UK as US President.
A huge crowd gathered in Trafalgar Square, one of the British capital's most iconic landmarks.
As thousands of protesters in London marched against Donald Trump's first visit to the UK as US President, a small group of far-right supporters emerged from a pub and scuffled with police and demonstrators.
Some of the far right supporters were joined by Trump supporters.
Footage shows heated exchanges between pro- and anti-Trump supporters, with at least three people being arrested as minor scuffles broke out.
Police eventually escorted the far-right and Trump supporters away from the anti-Trump rally, allowing them to gather at the Red Lion pub near the UK Parliament.
Throughout the day, anti-Trump demonstrators in London were seen chanting slogans to vent their disapproval over the visit, blowing horns and waving banners.
Protests in Britain are expected to continue on July 14th.
A small rally supporting US President Donald Trump in London has been joined by thousands of supporters of prominent right-wing activist Tommy Robinson.
Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, founded an anti-Muslim group and was jailed for contempt of court after broadcasting outside a criminal trial in May.
Scotland Yard had imposed restrictions on both rallies "due to concerns of serious public disorder and disruption."
It said a June rally by the "Free Tommy" group resulted in serious violence in London and led to nine arrests.
Police said two people were arrested at Saturday's rally for suspected public order offences.
US President Donald Trump was asked at the end of a Cabinet meeting on July 18th if Russia was still targeting the United States.
The president said, "no," contradicting recent warnings from his top intelligence chief.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said later on July 18th that Trump was saying "no" to answering more questions, although he did go on to answer an additional question.
Trump's comment came after National Intelligence Director Dan Coats said July 13th that warning lights about overall cyber threats to the US are "blinking red" - much like "blinking red" signals warned before the 9/11 attacks.
Trump did not elaborate on the threat posed by Russia, telling reporters that no American president has been as "tough" on Russia as he has been.
Russia has been the most aggressive foreign actor, but cyber threats also are coming from China, Iran and North Korea, as well as criminal networks and individual hackers, Coats said last week.
US intelligence agencies have said Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers, accusing them of hacking into the Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic Party.
Russia has denied state involvement.
House Speaker Paul Ryan dismissed President Donald Trump's plan to revoke security clearances from top former national security officials as just a mild form of "trolling," rather than a serious attack on dissent.
The GOP leader shrugged off the White House plan Tuesday, saying, "I think he's trolling people, honestly."
Ryan said the issue of who is able to access security clearances falls within the purview of the executive branch, rather than Congress. He seemed intent on leaving it to the White House to decide. Ryan says, "It's not really in our purview."
He dismissed Trump's threat to revoke the clearances of top former national security officials as simply the president's way of needling his opponents.
"I think he's just trolling people," Ryan said.
The White House on July 23rd said it was looking into revoking clearances for top former officials who have "politicized" their public service and security clearances by making "baseless accusations" that the Trump administration had improper contact with Russia or was influenced by Russia.
Ryan also responded to a question about President Vladimir Putin's possible visit to Washington this fall, saying he "certainly will not be giving him an invitation to do a joint session (address to Congress.) That's something we reserve for allies."
Ryan also said lawmakers are making the case to President Donald Trump that tariffs are "not the way to go."
The Republican leader told reporters July 24th, "I've made it pretty clear I don't think tariffs are the right answer."
Ryan's remarks came a couple hours after Trump tweeted that "Tariffs are the greatest!" and threatened to impose additional penalties on U.S. trading partners.
Donald Trump's former personal lawyer and "fixer" Michael Cohen says that he made hush money payments to two women "at the direction" of Trump.
Deputy U.S. Attorney Robert Khuzami told reporters on August 21st after Cohen's guilty plea that he submitted invoices to the candidate's company to obtain reimbursement for the unlawful campaign contributions.
Cohen pleaded guilty to charges including campaign finance fraud stemming from hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels and ex-Playboy model Karen McDougal.
The 51-year-old Cohen said in federal court in New York on Tuesday that he made the payments in coordination with Trump, who wasn't named, to influence the election. Both women claimed Trump had affairs with them, which he denies.
The other charges Cohen pleaded guilty to involve bank fraud and income tax evasion.
As part of his plea agreement, Cohen agreed not to challenge any sentence from 46 to 63 months.
US President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid an unannounced visit on September 21st to the federal courthouse in New York where he pleaded guilty a month ago.
Cohen left the building at around 1:30 pm and declined to say why he was there.
He also declined to comment on any discussions he'd had with special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.
On September 20th , Cohen confirmed in a tweet that he had met Mueller and provided "critical information".
Cohen is awaiting a December sentencing after pleading guilty to tax fraud, bank fraud and campaign finance violations.
During his plea, Cohen said Trump directed him to arrange payments to a porn star before the 2016 election.
