The New York Times - Whistle-Blower Tells Congress of Irregularities in White House Security Clearances

 

April 1, 2019

 


WASHINGTON — A whistle-blower working inside the White House has told a House committee that senior Trump administration officials granted security clearances to at least 25 individuals whose applications had been denied by career employees, the committee’s Democratic staff said Monday.

 

The whistle-blower, Tricia Newbold, a manager in the White House’s Personnel Security Office, told the House Oversight and Reform Committee in a private interview last month that the 25 [unidentified] individuals included two current senior White House officials, in addition to contractors and other employees working for the office of the president, the staff said in a memo it released publicly. ...

 

Ms. Newbold told the committee’s staff members that the clearance applications had been denied for a variety of reasons, including “foreign influence, conflicts of interest, concerning personal conduct, financial problems, drug use, and criminal conduct”  ...

 

 

 

 

The Washington Post - White House whistleblower says 25 security clearance denials were reversed during Trump administration

 

April 1 at 10:43 AM

 

 

A White House whistleblower told lawmakers that more than two dozen denials for security clearances have been overturned during the Trump administration, calling Congress her “last hope” for addressing what she considers improper conduct that has left the nation’s secrets exposed.

 

Tricia Newbold, a longtime White House security adviser, told the House Oversight and Reform Committee that she and her colleagues issued “dozens” of denials for security clearance applications that were later approved despite their concerns about blackmail, foreign influence or other red flags, according to panel documents released Monday.

 

Newbold, an 18-year veteran of the security clearance process who has served under both Republican and Democratic presidents, said she warned her superiors that clearances “were not always adjudicated in the best interest of national security” - and was retaliated against for doing so. ...

Trump has played 165 rounds of golf since he was inaugurated. Of course he complained about Obama's golfing while president.

Trump is the worst role model since Roman emperor Nero.

I happened to catch the beginning of a Trump rally the other day. It is not something I usually look out for. The room was filled with eager supplicants all holding their phones up to capture some video. I swear it looked like they were worshipping him, and maybe they were. I found it so disturbing that I quickly switched to something else, but I can't get the image out of my mind. I am starting to fear that Trump really could be unstoppable, and it doesn't matter how incompetent or criminal he is. Looking at those people in that room, there really is something frightening going on. I have often wondered how ordinary people who lived through the fall of Rome experienced it. Of course it wasn't so much a fall as a long, protracted slide, but I think we could be going through something of the same. I suppose people don't really experience history when it is happening to them the same way that it appears when looking back on it. I do hope this isn't the dawn of a new Dark Age.

I don't really care about name calling, and I certainly don't care about any US politicians feelings. I'm more concerned about real issues that matter to me like peace in the middle east. 



What are you thoughts about his lack of strong response against white-nationalism demonstrations and slow/non-adequate response to disasters in regions that are predominantly made up of Latinos/democratic voters?



I see you have not replied to this question. Want to speak now?

I didn't hear anything about inadequate disaster response. His "good people on both sides" response to what happened in Charlottesville was appalling.

 

Also in terms of policy, I probably disagree with 95% of his policies.

 

The only good qualities he really has is that he isn't a globalist and that he isn't starting wars. Which are two qualities that a lot of US presidents lacked.

 

I know that's a very low bar, however most presidents don't even meet that bar as they start over throwing governments as soon as they get in office. GW Bush was probably the worst president, and in my opinion should be charged for war crimes. Hillary Clinton in 2016 wanted to set up a no fly zone over Syria and have Assad taken out, very insane as we would of probably ended up with ISIS taking control of Syria.

 

I'd certainly prefer Bernie Sanders or Tulsi Gabbard over Trump, but the democrat establishment won't give either of them a chance because they aren't war mongers.

This is the sort of thing that annoys me. Colbert an establishment shill grilling Tulsi Gabbard because she's not a war monger.

What's a "globalist".

 

How is that better than a "nationalist", WRT to the leader of the largest (economy) and by far most powerful (military) nation in the world?

 

He's a bully.  And what he's doing will lead to war.
