Why the White House Security System is an Intelligence Emergency

Source - Just Security



....snip.....
There is an intelligence emergency emanating from the White House. The news that Rob Porter worked as Staff Secretary for over a year without a permanent clearance is synonymous with saying that there was a giant invitation to foreign intelligence services hanging on the steps of the White House.



But Porter was not the only one in this position, and it is important to understand how these unusual White House practices place United States security at risk.

- FBI could NOT conclude Porter, and many others, were eligible for a security clearance...intelligence emergency - I say National security emergency..

It's up to the HPSCI to release the DEM memo..damn it!!!!

https://www.justsecurity.org/52081/hpsci-trump-release-minority-memo/

Have at it..and many articles at this site..

....snip....

The President doesn’t have the power to block the HPSCI from releasing its memo.  Committee members, including Adam Schiff, will undoubtedly consult with DOJ and the FBI to make reasonable efforts to amend the memo so as not to burn any important sources or methods–something that Schiff himself recommended.  Even so, it’s ultimately up to the Committee to decide whether to release the memo, and whether to redact certain classified information before doing so.

Also, don't miss the WH latest move to undermine congressional authority - but, we, have precedent..in Gravel v US in 70's.

You want to spread hateful messages..you will be met with resistance....I refuse to listen to any normalization from the pundits - WTF - they don't even know HOW TO address this disgusting unimaginable evil in the WH - Persist, Resist!
