Major Scandal Breaks Out In Trump Administration And Ivanka And Kushner Are In The Middle Of It
A new report released on Monday revealed that 25 Trump administration officials who were granted security clearance were flagged for being having “serious disqualifying issues” that should have barred them from getting clearance.
According to the report, Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner are both among the individuals who were flagged.
It had been reported last month that Trump had to personally intervene to ensure that Ivanka and Kushner were both granted a security clearance.

A memo written by congressional aides stated that the individuals flagged by Whistleblower Tricia Newbold “had a wide range of serious disqualifying issues involving foreign influence, conflicts of interest, concerning personal conduct, financial problems, drug use, and criminal conduct.”
