Trump Administration Overruled 25 Security Clearance Denials Against the Best Interest of National Security
• • • •
“Tricia Newbold, an 18-year government employee who oversees the issuance of clearances for some senior White House aides, says she compiled a list of at least 25 officials who were initially denied security clearances last year because of their backgrounds. But she says senior Trump aides overturned those decisions, moves that she said weren’t made “in the best interest of national security.” That’s according to a report published on Fox News.
Among those officials includes Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
