Democrats Demand Ivanka Trump’s Security Clearance Revoked – Cite “Credibility Issues”

on

The democrats want Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner’s security clearance revoked due to “credibility issues”.

Reps. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) and Don Beyer (D-Va.) wrote a letter to White House counsel Don McGahn. It concerned Ivanka’s use of two, possibly three, private email servers for White House affairs.

This should sound familiar.  The same thing was happening with Hillary Clinton, but the roles were reversed last time. Democrats didn’t think it was a big deal when Clinton was doing this.  Now, suddenly it is.

From The Hill:

A Politico report earlier this week found Trump and [Ivanka’s] husband, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, reportedly sent hundreds of emails from a third private email account while serving in their White House roles.

The lawmakers also referenced a McClatchy report that Trump and Kushner were each fined after they failed to submit financial reports required by the Office of Government Ethics on time.

The financial disclosure forms submitted by Trump and Kushner also included different values for their personal assets. Some of those values had discrepancies of hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to McClatchy.

The Democrat lawmakers begged for her removal in the letter:

These new revelations, along with the ongoing White House probe of Ms. Trump’s private email use, have compromised Ms. Trump’s integrity and credibility.  We are requesting that the White House immediately revoke her security clearance pending an investigation into her actions…

In light of the recent developments relating to both Mr. Kushner’s e-mail accounts and his financial disclosure statements, we would like to reiterate our request that you immediately revoke his security clearance.

The current actions between both parties really show the deep divide in the country.  One day, they demand the hammer be brought down on their opponents.  The next day, they are trying to defend their own party for the same actions.

Losing Ivanka would be a devastating blow to the Trump presidency.  She is arguably the only woman that is within the inner circle.
