Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, has just announced a "wide-ranging investigation" into what he says are "grave breaches of national security at the highest levels of the Trump Administration." Cummings has sent the White House an 11-page letter informing them of the investigation into how the White House handles classified information.


The focus will be the White House security clearance process, which will include President Donald Trump's senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

NBC News reports "more than 130 political appointees working in the Executive Office of the President did not have permanent security clearances as of November 2017, including the president's daughter, son-in-law and his top legal counsel. Son-in-law Jared Kushner has since obtained a clearance, according to his lawyer, despite reports that he has been targeted for manipulation by foreign governments."
