Appreciate any insight from the group.
Department of State TS Investigation opened July 2nd, 2020
BI report submitted Sept 15, no investigator contact since. I was honest and transparent. Prior to, all character references and past/current employers let me know they had been contacted or interviewed. A few others I did not list, but likely sourced leads, also let me know they had been contacted.
No criminal history since 2001 (DUI dropped to reckless and fully disclosed), no drug use, credit is 840, taxes are current, solid academic record, military service spotless, and I don’t own anything outside of budget of someone with my income. No ties to shady domestic or international orgs, no questionable public or social media statements. Prior clearance info in DoD CAF. Family man with three kids and the wife has a clean record. My point is that I find it highly unlikely anything worthy of a lengthy adjudication or denial is out there. Whole picture should likely lean my way, whenever the case manager gets everything.
Possible issues I can think of:
A county clerk can’t find an arrest record from 2001.
International travel (personal) to Canada listed down to the hotel, flight numbers, rental car agency, and how often I had a beer with meals. No foreign govt contact except border crossing. All other foreign travel (in scope) was under military orders. None of my lifetime travel, outside of the military, has taken me anywhere questionable.
There has been a lead out for investigation since September or longer. It’s been the one thing holding it in investigations. I’m obviously aware of COVID. What kind of leads could possibly take three or more months without progress?
Thanks everyone. I’m sure I’m not the only one who appreciates the time and expertise you give here.
