Washington DC [United States], Feb 10 (ANI): Dozens of White House and Trump administration officials reportedly are still operating without full security clearances including President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.
The White House claims that the backlog of interim security clearances is a consequence of the review process carried out by the FBI and White House Office of Security, which can take time to complete.
According to Mark Zaid, an attorney who often represents clients in clearance cases underscored that the fact that many of these officials are affluent and have worked in the areas of finance with links to foreign governments would also contribute to a delay in the clearance process.
Kushner is among several officials who have had clearances delayed because of mistakes in their paperwork, the report said.
It is alleged Porter, 40, gave one ex-wife a black eye while another filed a restraining order. However, he denies it.
Porter's ex-wives, Colbie Holderness and Jennifer Willoughby, both went public in The Daily Mail with accounts of what they branded as physically and emotionally abusive behaviour.
Porter has denied the allegations against him saying, in a statement that, "These outrageous allegations are simply false."
Porter never obtained a full security clearance, despite being in a position that required him to handle classified information. (ANI)
