It’s a situation that didn’t have to happen. I do not understand why anyone was working in the WH who doesn’t have a completed security clearance. Especially with the unending problem with leaks and people from within not supporting the Trump agenda, I cannot fathom why the security checks weren’t complete. Assume Porter is innocent of any wrongdoing. If the security checks had been completed, allegations could’ve been answered right away.
Clinton had hundreds of people at the WH who didn’t have SC..................
If one waits for a security clearance to be totally completed, There would be no one in the White House to work for Trump except for Obama’s people. The people had to pass an initial National Agency Check, and get an interim clearance based upon passing that, before they began to work. Even though the FBI may have completed their investigation, the clearance still has to go to the final adjudicator’s for granting of a clearance. It is that final decision that was not been apparently made at the time the ‘brew ha ha’ happened. Two months before I retired last fall, the last person I hired got her final TS clearance granted. She had been working for me for nearly two years on an interim TS based upon her initial National Agency and background check.
It is also interesting that one of Porter’s ex-wives endorsed him as qualified to work in the White House, doing his administrative job there. Rush was talking about that at the beginning of his show today.
