HOUSE OF REPS/LEGAL/NATIONAL SECURITY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “The chairman of the House Oversight Committee issued a stark warning Friday [3-1-19] to White House counsel Pat Cipollone, demanding that the White House turn over documents and comply with interviews related to how the White House handled security clearances of some of the President’s closest advisers. Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland gave the White House counsel’s office until March 4 to comply with the request..Cummings’ letter comes after The New York Times reported Thursday that the President personally intervened to secure his son-in-law Jared Kushner a security clearance, despite concerns from career officials. The President had previously denied he personally intervened…The White House did not respond to CNN’s request for comment Friday on Cummings’ request for information. Rep. Gerry Connolly, a senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, told CNN that he wants former White House chief of staff John Kelly to appear before the panel — and he says the committee needs to obtain Kelly’s memo about Trump ordering the Kushner security clearance.”
