Whistleblower says White House security clearances given despite rejections

A White House whistleblower has said the Trump administration overruled security experts to give questionable security clearances to more than two dozen people. Tricia Newbold, a White House security adviser, said that the clearances were initially denied to dozens of officials. Newbold said former White House personnel security director, Carl Kline, overruled the judgments in two cases.

Why are they just now concerned with this? They have had clearance for a couple years now.

JFK said it best secrets are repugnant. The serious issue I see here is that Trump was voted into office and the same 3 letter organizations that tried to remove him are still at it. My view about these 3 letter orgs used to be a rallying point for Democrats before they turned into leftist. Remember when the CIA NSA FBI and the like were frowned upon by the democrats now they hail them as heros. They are NOT heroes secrets are BAD

😐 Tha''s good, Dims. Good thinking. Yo''re on the right track as always. After this, ''all should start a probe into how many times a day Trump breaks wind. Link that to climate change somehow and ''all be all set for 2020.

Aaaand... who is shocked that the Dems begin the subpoenas and the lawsuits now they control the house? Buckle up then, you ain't seen nothing yet... I understand that Trump deliberately and repeatedly stepped on the cracks in the pavement as a child. He MUST be impeached for that.
