Security Clearance Amendment

Posted by Bob Brigham

Senator Reid will offer the following amendment to the Homeland Security Appropriations Bill (on the floor right now) on behalf of Senator Levin:

No federal employee who discloses or has disclosed classified information, including the identity of a covert agent of the Central Intelligence Agency, to a person not authorized to receive such information shall be entitled to hold a security clearance for access to such information.

Reid is being joined by (at least) Levin, Rockefeller, Biden and Durbin. A vote is expected today.

Any Senator who does not get on board needs to be removed from office the next time they run for re-election, be they Republican or Democrat. Keep the names and votes of every senator in front of the public eye for the next five and a half years. A "Nay" should be a vote they most certainly live to regret.
