Sen. Tim Kaine told CNN Tuesday morning that accusations from a whistleblower that up to 25 White House staffers were initially denied security clearance is a "very, very serious" issue.
SEN. TIM KAINE: Look, I think the security clearance issue is very, very serious. you worry about these White House employees who are doing what they're doing to serve their country and they're telling their superiors, hey, these individuals should not be given security clearances. There are significant enough challenges in their background that they shouldn't be given security clearances. When these whistleblowers felt like they're pushed around or sidelined into other positions and obviously their warnings are overruled, we've got to take that seriously.
