Calls for Jared Kushner’s security clearance to be revoked have mounted as investigators probe whether the Trump campaign’s digital operation, led by Kushner, coordinated efforts with Russian bots to spread fake news about Hillary Clinton. That, in addition to being involved in Trump Jr’s meeting with a Russian lawyer for damaging information on Clinton, has even some Republicans calling for his security clearance to be taken away.
Bill Flores (R-TX) stated on Thursday,
I’m going out on a limb here, but I would say that I think it would be in the President’s best interest if he removed all of his children from the White House. Not only Donald Trump Jr. but Ivanka and Jared Kushner. I do find issues with the meeting. It’s a meeting that should not have taken place.
Flores isn’t the only Republican concerned about the validity of Kushner’s clearance. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have also raised questions about his security clearance. They wrote a letter to the director of the office that handles White House security clearance and acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe about the status of the clearance and circumstances surrounding his eligibility. They have not yet received a reply.
Several other meetings were not disclosed in Jared Kushner’s original security clearance form. In December, he met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and that was not reported. Kislyak relayed to Moscow that Kushner wanted to explore a secret back channel with Russia using Russian equipment that would be secure for US agencies. That doesn’t sound suspicious at all, does it? He also failed to disclose a different December meeting with the head of a prominent sanctioned Russian bank. Hmmm. Curiouser and curiouser.
His lawyers have stated that the omissions on the forms were an “oversight”, but let’s just call it as it is: Kushner is a sneaky little fucker and fits in perfectly with his corrupt in-laws. He wanted Daddy-In-Law in the Oval Office for his own personal gain, and he helped do that by any means necessary.
It’s time to fumigate the White House and get all the rats out.
