Witness Reportedly Strikes Deal With Mueller In Exchange For Testimony Against Trump

Six Trump staffers in the White House have just failed an FBI background check, causing them to be walked out by security.

The exact nature of why they failed the check is not clear, but Politico reports that they didn’t pass the SF86, a Questionnaire for National Security Positions – a requirement for any security clearance.

One of the people affected by the FBI probe was Trump’s director of scheduling, Caroline Wiles, who is politically connected through family relations to Governor Rick Scott in Florida. According to the report, Wiles will just re-file for another job in the Treasury, instead.  The names of the other individuals have not yet been announced.

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 16:  U.S. President Donald Trump, left, speaks with US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), center and US Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), right prior to signing H.J. Res. 38, disapproving the rule submitted by the US Department of the Interior known as the Stream Protection Rule in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on February 16, 2017 in Washington, DC.  The Department of Interior's Stream Protection Rule, which was signed during the final month of the Obama administration, "addresses the impacts of surface coal mining operations on surface water, groundwater, and the productivity of mining operation sites," according to the Congress.gov summary of the resolution.

The questionnaire apparently asks questions related to a person’s credit scores, substance use, and other personal subjects – one can only guess what they lied about. It’s a safe bet to assume that they didn’t fully disclose everything when they were hired.

But, hey, Trump only hires the best, right?

This is still a developing story and we will update it when more information becomes available.
