Recommended Posts

Thanks to a patriotic whistleblower we now know that Trump/Kelly intervened on behalf of 

Javanka 

John Bolton

Rob Porter

Michael Flynn

Hope Hicks (probably)

and many others.

negative info included drug addiction, wife beating, probable treason, criminal conduct, financial entanglements etc.

Thankfully with a Dem Congress we will have proper oversight and will expose the scoundrels.

Now, now.  The President has wide latitude in such matters.

You'll need to wait for a Democrat to pull a stunt like this.

Then, you'll see the patriots howl about it being wrong.

What did you expect when the president is a Russian asset? National security is kind of a wasted point, isn't it?

Guy will be along shortly to remind us that Shitstain is the final authority on national security matters and that we should defer to his better judgment. Shitstain knows things we don’t. Jeff will say that at least we don’t have Hillary. Dog will tell us that no laws were broken. Tom will tell us that this is obviously the natural consequence of DC vs Kelo.

It is very clear to me that Donald J. Trump has only the best interests of the US in mind at all times and his national security decisions must not be questioned.

 

Unfortunately, his definition of US is the Trump family and its economic fortunes.

That's merely a reminder that Trump could give Vladamir Putin a TS security clearance and the GOP would defend it to the death. Remember when they were all patriots?

From Axios , related news regarding security clearances.

https://www.axios.com/white-house-whistleblower-trump-security-clearance-f46d701b-68cb-4762-b783-2f77c148c98b.html

SNIP/

House Oversight chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) has sent a letter asking for a "final time" that the White House cooperate with the committee's investigation into security clearances, and warning that the committee will begin authorizing subpoenas on Tuesday for at least 5 current and former White House employees.

Details: The letter follows an interview with White House whistleblower Tricia Newbold, who told the committee that the Trump administration has reversed denials for 25 security clearance applications. Cummings told White House counsel Pat Cipollone that the committee will first issue a subpoena to depose Clark Kline, the former director of the Personnel Security Office.

  • That will be followed by subpoenas for chief security officer Cory Louie, chief operating officer Samuel Price, former deputy chief of staff Joseph Hagin and deputy director of administration William Hughes.

Cummings also said that the committee would forego interviews with White House officials if they begin cooperating with the investigation. He said the committee is prioritizing security clearance documents related to the following individuals:

  • Ivanka Trump — White House adviser
  • Jared Kushner — White House senior adviser
  • John Bolton — National security adviser
  • Michael Flynn — Former national security adviser
  • Sebastian Gorka — Former deputy assistant to Trump
  • John McEntee — Former personal aide to Trump
  • K.T. McFarland — Former deputy national security adviser
  • Rob Porter — Former White House staff secretary
  • Robin Townley — Former senior director for Africa

I had a TS+ clearance for close to 30yrs and worked mostly the + classified programs.  I, and those I worked with took it very seriously.  To hand out TS clearances like White House M&Ms is disgraceful.  

I can see Jared sitting in on a briefing about our military or intelligence capabilities and thinking, finally, I have something to share with Brad when we're lifting weights next week with Squee and PJ.  

At least I was subject to an annual polygraph to retain my TS, do the White House cleared do the same?

I find the timing questionable, As you point out she has been there 18 years. The security clearance issue has been discussed many times.  

Looks like Now that Mueller is done the Dems have a new issue to rally around. 

I have concerns about the process being skipped to issue these clearances.  

In the big picture I also believe presidents have a right to pick their advisors and those advisors need the security clearance.

You're absolutely right that the adjudication authority ( of which POTUS is one of many ) absolutely does have final authority to grant or deny a clearance request.  You're predictably wrong, again, when you porject that I think he has "better judgement".   I'd remind you that authority != wisdom, but, I think that the point would be moot.

You're quite wrong. I'll explain why:  Anyone who has a high level clearance has to undergo constant training and awareness of the myriad ways that information can be extracted, and that people can be compromised, and the techniques one is to personally employ to prevent those things from happening.  People who are issued clearances are also much more aware of and sensitive to the potential damage that even an unintentional disclosure can cause, and it's that sensitivity and awareness that makes them better informed.

You may be right they may have hidden her step stool .  BUT that is not what she is claiming   She is claiming they are deliberatly putting them out of reach.  Should the entire office only use shelves that she can reach or should there already be a ladder, step stool in place to help her reach those higher shelves.  18 years later the higher shelves are a problem?

Part of me finds it hard to believe fellow workers chuckling while she struggles to reach higher shelves.  I'm assuming most of her coworkers are career staffers.

Jared and Ivanka made $82 million bucks during their first year in the Trump administration and hang out with a Chinese spy even after being warned about her. That is not the kind of behavior that earns you a top secret clearance. I am glad the House is providing oversight on this, it's what they were elected to do.

Agreed.

What steps the House take to investigate and shed light on national security concerns are far more important than the self-serving and hypocritical posts on some sailing website by apologists who enable mismanagement by Trump and his family.

National security is an issue that we should be united on. Instead, it is an issue that divides us. Why is protecting our country from foreign influence not important?

I would expect someone suffering a form of Dwarfism, that has worked there for 18 years to have made arrangements long ago to reach higher shelves 

Yeah like moving things she needs to lower shelves.

You’re a raging asshole who never disappoints.

The other side from Gator’s link

On Monday afternoon, Jordan's staff issued a nine-page memo rebutting Cummings, saying that the Democrats "cherry-picked" information from Newbold's interview to assert that the White House had poor procedures over national security matters. Jordan's staff argued that Newbold was unhappy with her work environment and that her main concerns centered on Kline, arguing she knew little about why specific individuals' security clearances had been denied, who overrode those denials and their rationale for doing so. The staff's memo said Newbold told the investigators that just "four to five" individuals out of the 25 had been denied clearances for "very serious reasons," saying just three were current and former employees of the White House.
"If Kline overturned only -- at most -- five clearance adjudications with very serious concerns out of 5,000, Ms. Newbold's concerns seem very overblown," the memo said.

As long as we are at it. Your headline is full of lies as is your OP. 

For starters she is not a whistleblower.

I’m a dick for quoting the article in the OP.?  Get a grip.  

I found her claim odd considering her 18 years of working with her handicap. 

I find it odd that you seem to think it is her fault because other people are (apparently) intent on humiliating her and retaliating because she wouldn't rubber stamp SCs for the Trump spawn.

Do you also blame rape victims because the way they were dressed invited it?

You are assuming she is telling the truth.  I would be more inclined to believe her if she simply said files were kept from her   The whole putting them on a higher shelf just seems strange.   

I’d like at least one fellow career staffer to provide some confirmation of her story.   

If you read the whole article she didn’t even work on all the cases that are being claimed as being given security status

Remember, the hero in this story is the guy who made fun of a reporter with muscular dystrophy from a campaign stage.   Waving his arms around like a ten-year old bully making fun of a "spastic".

President Trump's boorish behavior has given license to immature bullies to openly act like this.

To think the right lost their shit when the Ws were removed from the computer keyboards.

Turns out, that was bogus.

Wait for a Dem to pull off a stunt like this? You mean wait as in go back to 1994 when 10% of the White house staff didn't have security clearances but were allowed to do their jobs without, because the FBI wasn't allowed to do its job? 

Yeah, but what about now?

Which judge called who?... doesn’t make sense for a judge to make a comment like that unless it was at a sentencing hearing for someone found guilty of treason... don’t recall that... although Obama would be the most likely to be standing in front of a judge hearing that 

You showed up!

Well, gosh, when you put it that way, it must be hunky dory!

Trump is using Bill as his template anyway....

Wearing his prettiest frock, too. Too bad he left his memory at home. Not that this is at all memorable with this administration.

A judge implied that Flynn was a ‘traitor’ who committed ‘treason.’ What does that actually mean?

You can't be expecting the troll to know all the news sitting in his cube in the Balkans, he's not being paid to read it,  he's being paid to obfuscate what you say.
