- The House Oversight Committee is slated to vote Tuesday to issue subpoenas seeking information on both the White House security clearance process and the process that led to the administration's controversial decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The panel, led by Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., is expected to vote along party lines on a resolution to subpoena the testimony of former White House personnel security director Carl Kline to discuss the security clearance process at the White House. The vote sets up a confrontation with the White House, with primary targets for the Democratic-led probe including the president's daughter Ivanka Trump and his adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Cummings has also raised concerns about national security adviser John Bolton and former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Cummings revealed on Monday that a White House whistleblower, Tricia Newbold, had told Republican and Democratic committee staffers that 25 denials for security clearances had been overturned during the Trump administration.
