Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Breitbart.com: “Democrats Send Letter Probing White House Over Rob Porter Resignation, Security Clearance - Breitbart”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In a letter addressed to White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly and White House Counsel Don McGahn, 12 Democratic senators led by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) ask whether Kelly was previously made aware of the allegations against him. The letter also asks why Porter did not have security clearance.

“We recognize that you and the President have tremendous discretion in deciding whom to hire to work in the White House,” the letter reads.

“However, we are troubled by published accounts suggesting that you decided to hire Mr. Porter despite the fact that he could not get a security clearance and that you were aware of the specific domestic violence allegations made against him,” it continues.

In addition to Porter, why are “multiple aides” who have also been denied a security clearance allowed continued access to our nation’s most sensitive secrets? I wrote to the White House with eleven of my colleagues demanding an explanation pic.twitter.com/zoVcV3vkxG

The letter follows reports suggesting that both Kelly and McGahn had been made aware of the allegations against Porter but failed to act on them.
