As it turns out, career officials rejected Jared Kushner’s security clearance at the White House, fearing that he was being influenced by at least one of four foreign governments. The career officials, however, were overruled by a political appointee, Carl Kline (who is now under investigation for an EEOC complaint). In fact, Kline overruled 30 rejected clearance applications, an extremely rare occurrence (it happened only once in the preceding three years). (NBC)

Thank you for the opportunity to read it though.’" Has a book affected you so deeply you want everyone to read it? You can register for Cannonball Read and tell the world why they should read it.
