DEMS/HOUSE OF REPS/NATIONAL SECURITY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “House Democratic investigators launched a probe on Wednesday [1-23-19] into the Trump administration’s use of security clearances and temporary security clearances, accusing the White House of playing fast and loose with the nation’s most guarded secrets. Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings laid out several lines of inquiry on the matter in a letter to the White House, naming former national security adviser Michael Flynn and top officials who he wrote should have raised red flags. The panel will press the White House to provide Congress with information about how and why it issued some security clearances, which Democrats note is required under federal law. Democrats have said the White House has so far refused to provide that information. Several inquiries on the same issue went unanswered by the administration last year.”
