WASHINGTON—The House committee that conducts oversight of the executive branch plans a wide-ranging probe into the security-clearance process at the White House, the panel’s chairman said Wednesday.

The investigation would aim to discover why the White House and presidential transition team “appear to have disregarded established procedures for safeguarding classified information” and determine whether unauthorized officials obtained access to secret information, Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, wrote in a letter to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone.

The article goes on to state the following:

The investigation is the first opened by the newly Democratic-controlled House Oversight Committee, which is expected to probe the first two years of the Trump administration. Mr. Cummings requested documents dating back to the transition and the firing of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was let go after it emerged that he had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with the Russian ambassador.
