Trump refuses to hand over ‘Kushner clearance’ documents to Congress: ‘It’s a disgrace’

Trump refuses to hand over ‘Kushner clearance’ documents to Congress: ‘It’s a disgrace’Donald Trump has refused efforts by Democrats in Congress to obtain files related to his son-in-law’s White House security clearance, calling the probes into his campaign and administration a “witch hunt”, and a “shame” for the United States. The comments came as House oversight committee chairman Elijah Cummings said on Tuesday that he and his colleagues would consider their “next steps” after the White House refused to hand over documents related to Jared Kushner’s security clearance. Mr Cummings had requested the documents after reports indicated Mr Trump had himself ordered his former chief of staff to grant Mr Kushner a security clearance in spite of concerns from US intelligence agents.

Democrats Launch Probe of Security Clearances for Kushner, Other Trump AidesControversy erupted over the White House’s security vetting procedures last year after revelations former Staff Secretary Rob Porter was permitted to keep his security clearance for months even though the FBI said it had provided the White House a report including allegations of domestic violence from his two ex-wives.
