Trump Reportedly Ordered Jared Kushner Get A Security Clearance Over Multiple Objections

The New York Times reports that John Kelly and Don McGahn both documented their concerns in memos.

Questions have long been swirling on just how, exactly, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner got approved for a top-secret security clearance last year, despite his many business conflicts and scandals.

A new report from the New York Times may provide the answer: Trump just ordered it, over the objections of his own chief of staff.

According to Times reporters Maggie Haberman, Michael Schmidt, Adam Goldman, and Annie Karni, Trump overruled “concerns flagged by intelligence officials,” White House counsel Don McGahn, and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and ordered that Kushner get a clearance in May 2018.

Both Kelly and McGahn documented their objections in memos, the Times reports, with McGahn’s memos outlining concerns raised by the CIA. But the day after McGahn recommended to Trump that Kushner not get a clearance, Trump gave him one anyway.

5. If Hil LIAR Y is allowed to keep her security clearance after freely passing out classified data

They anyone and everyone should be able to get one.

Justify Hil LIAR Y having a security clearance one single second after they found out how she mishandled highly classified material.
