A new report has revealed that the White House has either fired or reassigned multiple employees, including an aide to Melania Trump, over problems with security clearances.
ABC News reported on Wednesday that besides the staffers that have already been fired, there is “a list of several other individuals with security clearance issues that are under consideration for possible termination or reassignment in the coming days.”
The report also stated that the list of fired or reassigned employees includes “at least one individual employed in the Office of the First Lady.” ABC News did not specify exactly who has been let go.
White House chief of staff John Kelly has reportedly been making a list of staffers who have yet to receive a full security clearance. Last week he downgraded White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s security clearance from top secret to secret.
But, according to ABC News, the president still sent Kushner to meet with Mexican officials as a diplomatic envoy on Wednesday.
