Democrats slam Rove again; Call for revocation of security clearances


Following the Senate’s adoption last week of a Democratic Senate amendment to strip the security clearance of anyone who knowingly reveals classified information, a group of Senators today called on the White House Security Officer to reevaluate Karl Rove’s security clearance, RAW STORY has learned.

The list has grown from last week. In addition to Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) who first proposed the amendment on clearances, Senators Richard Durbin (D-IL), Jack Reed (D-RI),Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Mark Dayton (D-MN) have also signed the letter.

During debate last Thursday on the Defense Authorization bill, the Senate adopted an amendment by U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) to revoke the security clearance of anyone who knowingly reveals classified information vital to the national security of the United States, including the identity of a covert intelligence agent.

In order to avoid a roll call vote on the amendment, Republicans employed a rare procedure known as a “Standing Division” to approve the measure, Lautenberg's office told RAW STORY.
