I suggest two tracks to determine who should retain security clearances:
First: Review and revoke all clearances as warranted by the conduct of the holder.
Second: Perform a cost-benefit assessment for all security clearances held by those who are no longer on the government’s payroll. That’s just good financial sense.
The first step will protect national security. The second step will save taxpayer dollars.
Critical question: If a person without a clearance will not consult with the President, what difference does possession of a clearance make?
Allegation: Many persons are monetizing their clearances. Why should taxpayers subsidize them?
