Kushner Just Had His Security Clearance Downgraded: Report

Things keep moving backward in Donald Trump’s White House. On Tuesday reports revealed that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner’s security clearance had been downgraded from Top Secret to Secret.

According to multiple reports, Kushner will no longer be able to view top-secret intelligence.

The story first broke out on Politico after three people knowledgeable of the situation spoke with the news site.

According to inside sources, Kushner and other White House officials received a memo last week saying their security clearances would be downgraded from the Top Secret/SCI level to the Secret level.

“I will not comment on anybody’s specific security clearance situation or go beyond the memo released last week,” Chief of Staff John Kelly said.

“As I told Jared days ago, I have full confidence in his ability to continue performing his duties in his foreign policy portfolio including overseeing our Israeli-Palestinian peace effort and serving as an integral part of our relationship with Mexico,” he continued. “Everyone in the White House is grateful for these valuable contributions to furthering the President’s agenda. There is no truth to any suggestion otherwise.”

Kushner has faced criticism over his security clearance, especially after The Washington Post reported that he requested more intelligence information than almost every other White House official.
