The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee criticized the Trump administration’s response to questions about its vetting and security clearance process following a series of controversies about staff with access to the country’s most classified information.

Representative Trey Gowdy’s spokeswoman on the committee, Amanda Gonzalez, said Friday that a five-paragraph letter sent to the committee by White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short was “inadequate” and that “we have communicated to the White House that we expect full compliance.”
