Top Congressman Calls For Review Of Jared Kushner's Security Clearance

Edmund Collier | 31 May, 2017, 00:46

He instead called for a review to determine whether Kushner was being truthful when he applied for his clearance to serve in the White House. That could include Corey Lewandowski, David Bossie, and Sam Nunberg. Kushner isn't some unnamed operative who had worked a bit for the campaign; he is in some ways closer to the president than almost anyone else in the White House. "Jared Kushner lied on his form". "They're in full-scale war, and they're thinly staffed". The Times" report says Kushner assured Trump that the firing would "be a political "win' that would neutralize protesting Democrats because they had called for Mr. Comey's ouster".

According to the person familiar with the Kushner meeting, the Trump team eventually felt there was no need for a back channel once Rex Tillerson was confirmed as secretary of state on February 1.

"Any channel of communication back or otherwise is a good thing", Kelly told "Fox News Sunday".

Though some have endeavored to pass this off as no big deal, when considered as part of the larger pattern, it's another piece of the growing Trump-Russia puzzle.

"I might", said Kelly, acknowledging that terrorists are "obsessed with knocking down a US flight".

Sofia Coppola takes directing prize at Cannes
Kidman wasn't at the French Riviera ceremony on Sunday night but sent a video message from her home in Nashville, Tennessee. The Palme d'Or award for best picture at the Cannes Film Festival has been awarded to Ruben Ostlund's The Square .

Kushner has made it clear he's willing to answer any questions about the matter, Republican Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said on "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

Trump already has the resignation of his communications director Michael Dubke. Nevertheless, Kushner has reportedly been urged to keep a low profile as Trump prepares to reset his agenda following his return from overseas. It pushes back on a Washington Post story last week that said Kushner, who is also Trump's son-in-law, in December sought to establish a backchannel line of communication between the Trump transition team and Moscow during a meeting with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. "I don't trust this story as far as I can throw it".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., no fan of the president, said on CNN's "State of the Union" the allegations should be investigated but he doesn't put too much stock in them, saying they could be an attempt by the Russians to plant disinformation.

"If American policy was going to change for the wrong reason, that is, as a "thank you" to their intervention in the campaign, obviously that's very problematic", he said.

But on Sunday, Trump resumed his media bashing, calling leaks out of the White House lies, decrying the use of anonymous sources and complaining Greg Gianforte's special congressional election win Thursday got short shrift.
