Whistle-Blower: White House Reversed 25 Security Denials
  1. Testimony released yesterday revealed that a White House security adviser told the House Oversight and Reform Committee last month that administration officials overturned 25 security clearances she’d denied over national security concerns. Tricia Newbold, who has overseen security checks for Republican and Democratic administrations for 18 years, said she clashed with superiors over the clearances — which had been denied for conflicts of interest, foreign influence, criminal conduct and other issues.
    What comes next? The Democrat-chaired committee could subpoena White House officials, while Republicans are likely to cast it as a partisan attack against President Donald Trump.

    UK Parliament Rejects Brexit Alternatives — Again

    British lawmakers voted down four different alternatives yesterday to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, including a second referendum. May is expected to hold a five-hour Cabinet meeting today to explore her government’s next steps. Meanwhile, in response to Monday’s vote, the EU’s chief negotiator warned a no-deal Brexit was increasingly likely, though “we can still hope to avoid it.”
    What now? In the lead-up to an April 10 summit in Brussels, London must produce a new Brexit blueprint or risk leaving the bloc without any economic or political game plan.
