House Democrats Demand Security Clearance Docs

The Washington Post reports:

Top House investigators are demanding that the White House turn over documents related to its security clearances process by Monday, an escalation of the years-long fight between congressional Democrats and the Trump administration that could lead to subpoenas in the coming days.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.), in a letter to the White House on Friday, urged “full and immediate compliance” with outstanding requests the panel had made related to security clearances for much of the past two years.

Media Matters reports:

On The Ingraham Angle, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who says he was pushed off the presidential transition team over his personal conflict with Kushner, said that the “president had the absolute right to give a security clearance to whoever he wanted to,” but that the real issue is that Trump and Ivanka repeatedly lied about it.

Host Laura Ingraham argued that Ivanka “might not have any knowledge of any of this” before conceding, “We all commit unforced errors in our lives, and it’s an unforced error if the reporting is accurate.”
