Pedophiles, criminals & foreign agents had top secret national security clearance

Federal government contractors, such as defense contractors for the Department of Defense (DOD), require national security clearance.
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) conducts the majority of the personnel security investigations in connection with granting access to classified information. OPM uses government and contract investigators to conduct these investigations. (Source: DOD Defense Security Service)
But a recent DOD report found that in the last 3 years, 165 government contractors with felonies, influences from foreign governments, suspicious financial dealings, and even pedophilia were given national security clearance and thus, had access to top secret information.

Sundeep Kavanal Radesh reports for International Business Times that according to the report, obtained by NBC News on January 23, 2018:

  • In the past three years, 200,000 defense contractors had requested top secret national security clearance.
  • Of the 200,000 applicants, 486 were denied or revoked:
    • 370 of the 486 denials were due to “financial considerations”.
    • 63 denials were due to felonies.
    • 56 applicants were found to have evidence of foreign influence.
    • However, 165 of the 486 defense contractor applicants who were denied security clearance had slipped through the initial vetting process and, thus, had access to sensitive information for years before their access eventually was revoked. An example is an individual who was granted interim security clearance in 2015, but was revoked in 2017 after it was discovered he had raped a child before applying for clearance.

A former FBI official said interim or provisional security clearances are often necessary for many agencies to fill their jobs. An example is Jared Kushner, President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, who has not been given a permanent clearance, but has been operating with an interim security clearance for over a year, according to two law enforcement sources. Kushner’s interim clearance allows him to attend the President’s Daily Briefing.

Under United States’ law, the president can override findings by the FBI and grant national security clearance to whomever the commander-in-chief sees fit.

That explains how Obama’s staff got security clearances as well as all those perverts. Clearly his regime was transparent.

I’m sure there are still thousands who should not have any clearances whatsoever, just looking at the DOJ convinces me of that fact.

How easy is it to get clearances in other countries? This remark does not necessarily apply to this posting, but, security is reduced between countries to a certain extent at times for diplomatic reasons or to develop either trust or faux transparency. Also, Gary Aldrich, “Unlimited Access.” A book avoided by some during the 2016 election cycle.

It is expected if you have a corrupt president everything around you is going to be as you are, CORRUPT, Mustafa Obama and the tribesmen almost sank our country, he was more interested in globalism and how best he could give our country away to the best bettors, it was more to his agenda the rise of queers and lesbians, becoming a millionaire stealing money from the coffers and no one to stop him but getting his leftovers. He didn’t care, he didn’t give a dam and Killary Rotten Clinton getting away with murder that dark night in Benghazi.

Someone made the comment, “that is how the FBI gets their minions to do their bidding”. Once their backgrounds are revealed, they are blackmailed. Example Stephen Paddock and his affinity to child porn. Perhaps he was (outed) blackmailed with this information long ago, as his girlfriend was possibly engaged in Human Trafficking. Could be this information was used against him, for his full cooperation, err…the full cooperation to be patsy that he was. (Sorry, but anybody who wins big sums continually in Vegas is shown the door). Good chance we will never know, but there seems to be a rather… Read more »

I held a Top Secret clearance for many years. They DO investigate. There are so many requests now, however, and many are done by contractors, that the whole thing has turned into just another money-making scam. There is a law (I’m too lazy to look it up right now) that requires follow-up background checks every 90 days. That’s a lot of checks. Besides, as the article states, the President (or his designee) can override the findings. It is simply another myth that people with no personal knowledge believe. Like most things in government, it is commonly believed that secrets are… Read more »

This is it: We are living in the Age of Evil Rising. Not only do Satanists and pedophiles obtain security clearance, some of them actually get elected to office and wield their power to legislate and enact policy. Evil is like a river: It keeps on rolling until it is STOPPED. This is but one reason why I have been obsessed with George H.W. Bush, as an example. But we have to look at the public at-large, also: It was the public that picked up the pornography habit, as an example, and Hugh Hefner & Co. never put a gun… Read more »

When the ‘bosses’ are evil (see the Franklin Cover up by John DeCamp, Thanks for the Memories by Brice Taylor), it would make sense that they would let things slide for their minions. Many people do not realize how insidious and widespread this child molestation/abuse/kidnapping/rape is, otherwise they would not let strangers watch their kids in daycare and other places with nary a thought. It scares me to see how willing and nonchalant some parents are in trusting those they do not know well at all with their most valuable possessions, their children. I can count on my one hand… Read more »

Here’s their new approach. He says he isn’t a pedophile because he’s a nine-year-old trapped in an adult body:

The Pentagon was forced last year to rescind interim security clearances granted under the Obama administration to at least 165 contractors linked to various crimes, including felony convictions for pedophilia and foreign government affiliations, revealed a report issued by the Director of the Defense Security Service (DSS). According to the report, DOD contractors preserved their ability to access sensitive government information despite prior criminal records and other illicit past activity that the Pentagon’s vetting process failed to detect. “Of those 165 cases, 151 people had pre-existing issues that they did not disclose and were not discovered during initial checks; the… Read more »

Makes one wonder just how Huma and Valerie got their clearance. Before Obama was elected the secret service let it slip out that he couldn’t pass EVerify. In other words, he couldn’t get a job to guard himself. Pelosi and another person lied when they said they vetted him.

Birds of a feather stick together. The Dem’s can’t hire anyone who doesn’t have a record because they wouldn’t stay on the job. Anyone with any sense would recognize the snake pit in which Obama moves about. You would never last if you were an honest person.
