General BS forum I guess anything is fair game in here. Just watch the subject matter doesn't get carried away too much.

Sticky question

Here's something that has been bouncing around in my head lately.

At what point are elected officials (for instance members of the House of Representatives and the Senate) subjected to security clearance investigations?

And those people in positions that are given high level security clearances, how soon after they leave office are those clearances revoked?

Some may have security clearances but elected officials are not required to have security clearances (or investigation).
Some staffers, etc., can be appointed to have security clearances though.

Some security clearances may have an expiration but others do not have one (even if no longer employed in a position where one is needed).

This means that, let's say a congressman, can have quite an unsavory past (or is presently unsavory), and would not pass a security clearance, but can have their position via election. It has happened, where this type of person was a congressman, and I am sure it still does.

The president can revoke a security clearance if he/she feels the need to. Maybe certain "few" others can, as well, but I know the president can.
