W.H. Dodges on Who Allowed Rob Porter to Stay on Without Security Clearance

‘The White House personnel security office, which is staffed by career officials, may have received information, but they had not completed their process’

EXCERPT:

WELKER: "Let me just clarify one more point. You said yesterday you didn’t get any paperwork from the F.B.I. Chris Wray said that he did submit paperwork at various moments."
HUCKABEE SANDERS: "Again, that would come through the White House personnel security office, which had not completed their investigation and not passed that information to the White House."
WELKER: "But you acknowledge that you did receive paperwork?"
HUCKABEE SANDERS: "I think you need to be very clear about there’s multiple groups here. The White House personnel security office, which is staffed by career officials, may have received information, but they had not completed their process and made a recommendation to the White House for adjudication."
