Is that a thing now?
It has been confirmed by four sources that, in May, against the advice of former White House Chief of Staff, General John Kelly, Donald J Trump ordered officials give his son in-law, Jared Kushner, Top Secret Security Clearance.
Kushner had previously been denied clearance due to his repeated and continued “mistakes” by omission of pertinent information with regards to his security clearance application, which he amended the 40 times, each time adding a debt owed or a foreign official he’d been in contact with.
In the end, his federal disclosure form included more than 100 names of foreign contacts.
This question begs an answer- Is he stupid, or was he hiding something… both perhaps?
His explanation last July was as follows:
“I did not remember the meeting and certainly did not remember it as one with anyone who had to be included on an SF-86.”
Okay, that may explain one, (in a sort of half assed way), now explain the other 99.
How a president can override something that puts our national security at risk is beyond comprehension.
You may remember Kushner tried to set up “back channel communications” with the Russians, as per surveillance tapes of one time Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak.
Kushner has also been ridiculed by Saudi leaders and labeled “easy to manipulate”. Kushner is said to have been the source who gave Mohammad bin Salman, the bone-saw Saudi Crown Prince, a list of his enemies, which led to the brutal murder of journalist Khashoggi.
Jared Kushner’s astounding debt has somehow dissipated since Trump took office. 🤔
White House Press Secretary Gem, Sarah Sanders explained the situation as follows:
“We don’t comment on security clearances.”
Thank you, Sarah.
The time to step in has long passed.
Don’t despair, there is good news. Michael Cohen’s testimony has led to a promise, by Congressman Elija Cummings, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee. He has vowed to seek interviews with Jarvanka, as well as traitor tot Don Jr, and Felix Sater.
