UPDATE 2-U.S. House panel to vote on holding White House ex-official in contempt

A U.S. House committee will vote on holding a former White House security director in contempt for failing to appear for questioning on allegations the Trump administration inappropriately granted clearances to some of the president’s advisers, the panel’s chairman said on Tuesday. “We will hold a vote of our committee shortly to hold him in contempt and then we will check with House counsel … to see where we go from there,” House of Representatives Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings said in an interview with MSNBC. Carl Kline, who served as the White House personnel security chief for the first two years of Republican Donald Trump’s presidency and now works for the Department of Defense, had been called to appear before the committee at 9 a.m. (1300 GMT).
