Intelligence official: People with interim security clearance should have limited access to information

By JOSH GERSTEIN 02/13/2018 11:30 AM EST

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said Tuesday that people with temporary security clearance should have only limited access to sensitive, classified information.

Coats did not mention any individuals, but the White House has come under scrutiny after it became public that former staff secretary Rob Porter and various other officials had access to sensitive information while operating with only interim clearances. Porter resigned last week over allegations that he abused two ex-wives.

1. But Trump is a KGB asset as are most of his administration and many powerful sitting Republican

politicians.

They actually are working for Putin. Their campaigns were paid for by Putin.

So we SHOULD do lots of things but now that traitors are running the country, we cant.

We could start SCREAMING at the top of our lungs everywhere we go that the WH is full of traitors, we COULD do that!

2. KGB asset - I totally agree. (Note: hate to push conspiracies, but too much evidence points to this)

3. He is a complete idiot, clueless, but sometimes that is the best asset.

Sadly many sitting GOP politicians are also, like Pence, Ryan, etal.
