news outlets run with ‘AR15’ which has been later rebuked. Alexis had been previously arrested for TWO PRIOR firearms ASSAULT CHARGES. How did this NOT come up during his security clearance? Supposedly, he had ‘mid level clearance’, which would assume Secret or Top Secret clearance. These arrests would have come up during his background check. This leads me to believe that he had actually been operating under an INTERIM Clearance - meaning his contract company STARTED his clearance background check, but no one ever finished it.
