Rep. Ro Khanna on WH Security Clearances, Ending Support for the Saudi War in Yemen, and Venezuela

Well, this is a systematic assault on civil servants and expertise in our democracy. It’s unprecedented. Here you have a situation where the civil servant, Tricia Newbold, of great courage, has come forward and is saying that despite the career recommendations to deny security clearances, the president overruled that and, for personal reasons, gave these security clearances. And there are some serious allegations of why people were initially denied these clearances—drug use, potential foreign context, potential concerns of business dealings. So, the American public needs to know why career officials were overruled and these security clearances were granted.

Congressman Ro Khanna speaks about the latest happenings around the world to Democracy Now!
