Democrats Launch Investigation Into White House Security Clearance Breaches

Jared Kushner, John Bolton, and Michael Flynn are among the probeís targets.

In a letter to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, highlighted how throughly the administration has stonewalled past congressional requests for information on the topic. ďFor the past two years, I have sought information with other Committee Members about a series of extremely troubling incidents regarding the security clearances of some of President Trumpís top aides, but the White House has refused to provide the information we requested, often ignoring our requests completely,Ē Cummings wrote.

Cummings is seeking all documents related to background investigations and security clearances of Trumpís son-in-law Jared Kushner; national security adviser John Bolton; former national security adviser Michael Flynn; Flynnís son, Michael Flynn Jr.; former White House national security aide Sebastian Gorka; and former White House Secretary Rob Porter, among others.

It would take years to clean up this mess even without the concerted interference of the trans-national crime organizations and their paid lackeys the GOP. The last vestiges of judicial integrity are fading away as the judiciary drops all pretense of representing the constitution or the people over the predatorial monied class. We're watching all this harden like concrete around us. If elected and appointed officials cannot be compelled to tell the truth, we're truly screwed.
