I have already posted this in some form or fashion but I was sponsored for a secret clearance from Feb 2016 to May 2017 when it was discontinued and placed into LOJ status.
I have since been sponsored for another secret clearance as of Jan 2020. I have been informed by my FSO that they will continue where the old one left off since it was never completed. He informed me however that I would not be receiving an e-qip since that e-qip is still valid.
What happens now? Will they send me an LOI for the first one for me to respond to?
The problem is I job falsfied the 1st secret clearance when it came to why jobs ended. I said contract expired instead of being fired. When confronted by my investigator however I did admit that yes I lied.
How do I mitigate this or I cant in which case what is the fall out?
Its frustrating because I understand now that I should not have lied in the first place. I was given bad career advice and told to say “contract expired as they dont look.”
That was clearly stupid and very bad advice and I was stupid for listening.
I have since stopped doing this and no longer do as of 3 years.
Can you recover if you did lie on an SF 86 but no longer do or is it a “one and done”?
