John Kelley allowed Porter to handle classified information without clearance - which is illegal

http://www.politicususa.com/2018/02/11/ … orter.html

After it was reported that Trump chief of staff John Kelly let Rob Porter continue to handle classified information after his security clearance expired, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) noted that Kelly committed a crime and must resign if the report is accurate.

Politico Magazine reported:

In Porter’s case, the interim security clearances had been temporary: 180 days with the option for extension (another 180 days). Porter appears to have started on January 20, 2017—Inauguration Day. Assuming he was given that “interim” clearance on Day One, it would have expired on January 15, 2018.

The fact that chief of staff Kelly—a former military officer and former secretary of homeland security—would not have seen this as a problem is staggering. He would know better than anyone that managing highly restricted information is essential to American national security.



BAGGERS - why are your leaders all criminals? This is flat out illegal. You would have had white-hot, 29-hour a day tantrums if Obama let anybody have access to classified information without clearance.

More proof that conservatism is a mental illness and we need to sterilize this country of Baggers.

What about Hillary Clinton's private server hidden in her toilet?

This, surprisingly, is a bit of a grey area.  Classified clearances come from the executive branch and ultimately flow from the president.  I'm not sure a case like this has ever been tried.

Just because there is a logical fallacy in someone's argument doesn't mean their whole argument is wrong.

I know you like rhetorical masturbation so I'll you argue it out yourself.
