Reports: Trump Ordered Security Clearance for Jared Kushner
President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, a White House adviser, reportedly received top-secret credentials last year despite concerns from intelligence leaders and legal experts. No specifics were revealed about what prompted the pushback — including from then-chief of staff John Kelly, who was reportedly concerned enough that he documented the request in writing — but speculation has centered on Kushner’s foreign contacts. Trump denied involvement in the matter.
What’s next? The Democrat-chaired House Oversight and Intelligence Committees are already looking into the administration’s security clearance process.
