Proposed: POTUS? Security Clearance 1st
Sheryl Canter

There’s more discussion in a Facebook group where I posted this article, and I’m adding some of the ideas from there over here…

We have a system where a person who couldn’t pass a security check can be POTUS and have access to ALL our national secrets, where POTUS doesn’t have to meet the same ethical standards as every other member of government.

The solution I proposed may not be the right one, but SOMETHING MUST BE DONE. If a requiring a security check puts too much power in the hands of the FBI, then what is the answer? There must be more of a check on POTUS. The election of Donald Trump — a con man and a criminal — shows us that limits on POTUS cannot be left to the honor system.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
