Trump’s national security adviser H.R. McMaster is in trouble with conservatives and all level-headed Americans after he allowed Susan Rice keep security clearance. This is only controversial because the information comes out just a month after we discovered Rice “unmasked” Trump associates.
He sent Rice a letter announcing that she had “unfettered and continuing access to classified information.”
The letter was sent to her house at the end of April and made sure that she would be able to access any information that she needed, no matter the classification or need.
The letter reads as follows:
The National Security Council (NSC) security office has informed me you have an active Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance sponsored by the NSC and maintained by the Office of Administration’s Personnel Security Office. Going forward, the NSC will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information. Since the NSC maintains your clearance, you also can contact the NSC Security Officer to pass your security clearance to other agencies and the private sector, if necessary.
Pursuant to section 4.4 of Executive Order (E.O.) 13526 “Access by Historical Researchers and Certain Former Government Personnel,” I hereby waive the requirement that you must have a “need-to-know” to access any classified information contained in items you “originated, reviewed, signed, or received while serving” as National Security Advisor. This decision is based on my determination: (1) that such access is consistent with the national security interests of the United States, and (2) that appropriate steps have been taken to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure or compromise and to ensure that the information you access is safeguarded in a manner consistent with E.O. 13526.”
This certainly raises some eyebrows. Do you think that Donald Trump has been stabbed in the back by McMaster?
