  • Kushnerís Security Level Downgraded from Top-Secret to Secret

    For a Nothing-burger, I assume...


    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/27/u...T.nav=top-news


    WASHINGTON ó Jared Kushner, the presidentís son-in-law and senior adviser, has been stripped of his high-level security clearance after months of delays in completing an exhaustive background check, limiting his ability to view highly classified information, a White House official and another person familiar with Mr. Kushnerís situation said.

    Mr. Kushner has had his top-secret clearance reduced to secret and his portfolio, specifically in regard to foreign affairs, is expected to be reduced, the people said. The news was first reported by Politico.

    The move comes after John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, recently moved to overhaul the security clearance process at the White House after Rob Porter, President Trumpís staff secretary, resigned amid allegations of spousal abuse.

    Kushnerís overseas contacts raise concerns as foreign officials seek leverage

    Officials in at least four countries have privately discussed ways they can manipulate Jared Kushner, the presidentís son-in-law and senior adviser, by taking advantage of his complex business arrangements, financial difficulties and lack of foreign policy experience, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with intelligence reports on the matter.

    Among those nations discussing ways to influence Kushner to their advantage were the United Arab Emirates, China, Israel and Mexico, the current and former officials said.

    It is unclear if any of those countries acted on the discussions, but Kushnerís contacts with certain foreign government officials have raised concerns inside the White House and are a reason he has been unable to obtain a permanent security clearance, the officials said.

    Must have been a graduate of Farber College that came up with those designations. Dean Wormer would be proud. Kushner will never come close to the ever exclusive Double Top Secret clearance. He will never learn about Area 51, The Grassy Knoll and Coca Cola's 1st real ingredients.

      This is how it is supposed to work. It is about time the government starts taking clearances serious. Had they been following the regulations in past administrations.....a lot of our current problems with leaked information probably wouldn't have happened.

        We already know what Coke's "secret ingredient" was. The rest of it about Area 51 and the Grassy Knoll is on television, too.


        Security classifications are a joke. Even the janitors have to have one.

          The sinister Podesta , right,no :left hand of Hillary said : Kushner better start wearing his kevlar on his back .

          Which is a blatant threat .

          If a GOP had said this about the son-in-law of Hillary, the whole mainstream media would roar and presses would be stopped and Mueller would start an investigation .

          But now ... : nothing .

          Every GOP is fair game .

              Kushner should never have been in the White House, and allowed to see classified material, in the first place.

              No experience, no knowledge on the subject, and no common sense.

              He went to meetings alone with representatives of foreign governments among other misadventures.

              Both he and his wife have no business in the White House or representing the US anywhere.

              Trump's nepotism is not good for the country.

                Kushner and conflict of interest, or, enriching himself at the nation's expense:

                  No experience, no knowledge on the subject, and no common sense. Equals the White House today.

                    Yes, it does. The most telling indicator of incompetence, which to my mind is criminal negligence, is the testimony of Admiral Rogers regarding Trump's failure to go after the Russians in kind for interfering in the US election process.

                    I wonder what the Russians have on Trump?

                    He is deliberately selling the country out.
