The Wall Street Journal: House panel demands White House turn over documents on Kushner security clearance

WASHINGTON — The House Oversight Committee on Friday renewed its request to the White House for documents related to the administration’s security-clearance processes, following reports that President Trump ordered his former chief of staff to grant his son-in-law a top-secret security clearance.

In a letter to White House counsel Pat Cipollone, the panel’s chairman, Elijah Cummings (D., Md.), said this was the committee’s last request for voluntary compliance, suggesting he could seek to compel the administration’s cooperation if the White House didn’t turn over the documents.

The New York Times reported Thursday that Trump had overruled concerns expressed by intelligence officials and former White House counsel Don McGahn and ordered former chief of staff John Kelly to grant Jared Kushner—his son-in-law and a senior adviser—a top-secret clearance.
