Newbold told the lawmakers that at least 25 applicants were granted security clearances despite "disqualifying issues" including concerns about foreign influence, conflicts of interest, drug use and criminal conduct, according to Cummings' letter.

NBC News reported in January that Newbold's boss, Carl Kline, approved Jared Kushner for top secret clearance after it was deemed unfavorable by two career security specialists. The pair had decided against recommending a clearance for Kushner after an FBI background check raised concerns about potential foreign influence on him, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

Speaking to NBC News, Newbold, an 18-year government employee, said a sense of duty fueled her decision to speak out to Congress.

"The protection of national security is not a Democratic issue or a Republican issue, it's an American issue," said Newbold, who was not speaking in her official capacity. "And we as security professionals owe it to make all our recommendations in the best interest of national security."
