Six Democratic senators on Wednesday asked FBI Director Christopher Wray to give them the names of all White House staffers working without a full security clearance.
In a letter sent Wednesday to the FBI chief, the senators asked Wray also turn over the status of the FBI background investigations of every staffer working in the White House on an interim security clearance.
The House Oversight Committee launched an investigation into Porter, and how much White House officials knew of the accusations despite hiring him.
Porter was allowed to work for the administration despite having an interim security clearance, and even thought White House Chief of Staff John Kelly knew of the FBI’s investigation into the accusations.
Before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, the Director of National Intelligence told lawmakers the background check process for White House staff is “broken and needs to be reformed.”
