Washington: A former White House personnel security director has been instructed by the White House not to show up on Tuesday for questioning by the House Oversight Committee.

The move appears to be the latest effort by the Trump administration to push back against congressional inquiries of the White House, which have proliferated since Democrats took control of the House of Representatives in January.

John Kelly: White House 'A Miserable Place To Work'

Donald Trump’s chaotic behavior is taking a toll on his Chief of Staff and everybody else that comes into contact with him at the White House.
