Senior White House official George David Banks has “resigned” after being told that his security clearance had been denied. It makes him the third White House official to resign in just one week.
Banks, who served as Special Assistant to the President for International Energy and Environment for nearly a year, told Politico on Wednesday that his application for a permanent security clearance had been denied.
According to Banks, his security clearance had been denied because he admitted to smoking marijuana in 2013, which is illegal under federal law — however, the current policy is that they can get clearance unless they lied about it.
The allegations surrounding Porter have prompted questions about the handling of permanent security clearances as Porter, along with some other officials at the White House, were using interim clearances. The White House has also been under fire for its handling of the allegations against Porter.

Jeanine Pirro May Be Next Attorney General and Wants to Prosecute Clinton and Comey
Jeanine Pirro, who named herself “Judge Jeanine,” of FoxNews has been lobbying Trump and congress to be the next Attorney General. While people might not be taking this seriously, Trump on the other hand has been picking possible replacements in government from FoxNews commentators for some time including the seemingly doomed Ambassorship of Richard Grenell — who appeared on FoxNews for sometime.
Jeanine has spoken to Congressional aides according to a friend of mine, and even shared her plans to Prosecute Clinton and Comey, if assigned the job. It’s clear she is attempting to get Trump’s attention, and offering a “way out” for him.
Despite originally claiming that Comey was a “hero in Washington,” she’s now gone as far to call him a “leftist liberal.”
LVMPD Sheriff Bans Officers from Talking About Vegas Shooting
Police in Las Vegas have released more records this week on the Las Vegas shooting, after a court order forced Sheriff Lombardo. Courts ordered the release of public records including police body-camera video, dispatch logs, witness accounts and officer reports from the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds on the Las Vegas Strip.
In Response Sheriff Joe Lombardo has banned any officers from commenting about the shooting, or risk termination.
The Sheriff says that he doesn’t still have a motive for the attack, and that the investigation is ongoing. However, many people in the Vegas area have claimed that MGM and the Sheriff are involved in a coverup.
