A top White House national security adviser and key proponent of the Obama administration's diplomacy with Iran is the focus of a congressional inquiry following disclosures the FBI may have denied him top-level security clearances, according to communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Ben Rhodes, a White House deputy national security adviser who led the administration's efforts to mislead Congress about the terms of the Iran nuclear agreement, is under scrutiny in the wake of disclosures he was declined interim clearance status by the FBI in 2008, when the administration was moving into the White House.
Since that time, Rhodes has emerged as a key adviser to President Obama and a major player in the administration's efforts to create a self-described pro-Iran deal "echo chamber" to mislead Congress and Americans about the terms of the Iranian nuclear agreement.
Lawmakers are now concerned that Rhodes' access to the top levels of governmentincluding its diplomacy with Iranis inappropriate due to the FBI's concerns about his past.

IMHO, THIS is why all the JUST NOW dust-up about Porter to get ahead of the "No security clearance" for Rhodes which is REALLY damaging.
In before the Sessions bashing
Someday people will stop focusing on the individual trees (crimes) and will see the forest that was the Kenyanesian Usurpation.
“Lawmakers are now concerned..”
Where were the Republicans eight years ago when this was occurring?
Republican swamp rats did nothing throughout Obama’s tenure and were enablers of Obama’s misdeeds.
Benjamin J. “Ben” Rhodes is a former White House staff member who served as the Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications for U.S. President Barack Obama and as an Advisor on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran.
During the Obama administration, Rhodes’ official title was “Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications and Speechwriting.” He served as Obama’s foreign policy speechwriter from 2007 until the end of Obama’s presidency.
Ben Rhodes is evil. He unmasked bunches of people. Friend of the ayatollah. Liar in chkef. etc.
Who gives a rat’s a$$ about this Porter a$$wipe? He’s gone. Don’t we have some more pressing issues to deal with?
Add yet another swamp rat to the indictment list. 5 minutes ago I just finished an email to the White House suggesting that Susan Rice be subject to the full extent of lady justice and why.
It has been a long time since I read Gary Aldrich’s book, “Unlimited Access”.
If I remember right, Aldrich noted that there were lots of people running around the Clinton Whitehouse without clearances in his first term.
Seems to me that Aldrich speculated then that Hillary had a hard time trusting people who could pass the background check. FWIW.
Thank you very much for the link!!
I sure hope so!!!
Ben is STILL “workin” as I type.....
The list IS getting quite long.
I remember that also.
We are getting closer to VJ
There needs to be a flight risk restriction on Huma and VJ.
Ben Rhodes, imagine that.
What a slimey crew, but WE knew that long ago.
My pleasure, musicman!!
