Refuse Subpoena – Security Clearance


Remember when Trump...

instructed White House officials to refuse subpoenas from Congress? A whisteblower in the White House personnel security department alleged that they were “recklessly granting security clearances to individuals whom lower-level administration personnel staff had found unworthy”. The White House overruled their decisions over 24 times, potentially putting national security at risk. The White House refused to allow Congress to investigate the claims by the whistleblower, even though this request is in line with Congress’ oversight responsibility granted by the Constitution.
