Trump kin Kushner was denied security permit in 2018

Republicans have lashed out at the security clearances investigation, calling it a "partisan attack on the White House". "I've been on this committee for 10 years, I've never seen anything like this", he continued.

According to Newbold, the White House officials issued security clearances over her objections "had a wide range of serious disqualifying issues involving foreign influence, conflicts of interest, concerning personal conduct, financial problems, drug use, and criminal conduct". 'Do you pose a grave national security concern to the country?', Ingraham asked. "We did not intend to release any material from the interview; however, Chairman Cummings's reckless decision to release cherry-picked excerpts forces us to provide this supplemental information". "I've sat for almost 20 hours of interviews with them", Kushner continued.

In a wide-ranging interview with host Laura Ingraham, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump described his satisfaction at seeing the passage past year of the bi-partisan criminal justice reform bill, known as the First Step Act, whichs aims to reduce recidivism and help criminals reintegrate into society.

Cummings doubled down on the supposed necessity of the subpoenas because the Trump administration is "stonewalling". But Jordan says Cummings is going too far.

"The process by which this matter has so far progressed has been anything but fair", he added.

The White House didn't comment on Newbold's testimony. She recently contacted congressional leaders and alleged that top-secret clearances were handled improperly, including some for top aides to the president.

Newbold told the committee last month that officials in the Trump administration overruled the recommendations made by her and others to deny security clearances to 25 individuals.

Director of Personnel Security Carl Kline, who Ms Newbold claims reversed her rejections, is on the list of officials that Democrats plan to compel to testify. Kline now works at the Department of Defense, and he supervised Newbold for two years.

Trump punts vote on health-care bill until after 2020 election
What happens to the tens of millions of Americans who will lose their health care? U.S. Schumer mocked Trump for pushing off the health care debate past the elections.

President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is one of Trump's top advisors, said that the media was obsessed with the "conspiracy theory" that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to win the 2016 election.

In a letter sent to the committee Monday after Cummings released Newbold's interview, Kline's lawyer said Monday that he would be willing to voluntarily appear before the committee. "I know that this will not be perceived in favor of my intentions, which is to bring back the integrity of the office", she is quoted as saying in the letter.

But Cummings said Kline will not answer questions about specific security clearance applications or violations - details the chairman wants.

The GOP members of the committee called Cummings's decision to move forward with the investigation into Newbold's claims "reckless".

Those complaints included office staffing levels, how files were stored, and even the position of Kline's computer monitor on his desk.

Cummings letter was the second sent from Congress on Monday warning the White House of pending subpoenas as the Democratic-controlled Congress seeks to compel the administration to comply with wide-ranging investigations.
