Remember when Donald Trump and his followers would chant "LOCK HER UP" over Hillary Clinton's usage of a private server because is supposedly left confidential government files exposed to prying eyes that didn't have the proper security clearance?
Yeah, about that.
It turns that hundreds... HUNDREDS!... of Donald Trump appointed White House personal, who have unfettered access to classified government documents, lack proper security clearances.
The stunning revelation was uncovered after it was shown that Rob Porter, the Trump aide who had beaten his ex-wives and resigned in disgrace, did not have a full security clearance.
This led to later reports that “30 to 40” White House officials lacked the permanent clearance.
And now new reports indicate that more than 100 White House staffers have been working without full security clearances including several prominent names such as White House counsel Don McGahn, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah, and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
To put this perspective all any one of these hundred plus White House personnel would need to do to provide a foreign government top secret information to would be to pick up a phone, fax, photograph or just walk out the front door with a copy of the info.
There isn't even a need to hack a account which we already know Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner use!
As a result of the shocking revelation Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly has directed the overhauling of the Trump administration’s security clearance process for staff.
The new rules and procedures for security clearance standards in a memo first obtained by the Washington Post and later released by the White House.
The memo reads...
“The American people deserve a White House staff that clearly meets the highest standards and that has been carefully vetted — especially those who work closely with the president or handle sensitive national security information,”
Ya think so?
With hypocrisy this outrageous I wonder if there will be any chants of "Lock him up!" coming from the Trump supporters who fell for the Clinton server fake news or the "I only hire the best people" lie?
