Kushner Omitted Meeting With Russians on Security Clearance Forms - By JO BECKER and MATTHEW ROSENBERGAPRIL 6, 2017 When Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, sought the top-secret security clearance that would give him access to some of the nation’s most closely guarded secrets, he was required to disclose all encounters with foreign government officials over the last seven years. Jamie Gorelick, Mr. Kushner’s lawyer, said that the questionnaire was submitted prematurely on Jan. 18, and that the next day, Mr. Kushner’s office told the F. B.I. Michael T. Flynn, Mr. Trump’s first national security adviser, had his security clearance suspended and was fired for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about the content of phone calls with the Russian ambassador during the transition. The Senate Intelligence Committee informed the White House weeks ago that, as part of its inquiry, it planned to question Mr. Kushner about the meetings he arranged with Mr. Kislyak, including the one with Sergey N. Gorkov, a graduate of Russia’s spy school who now heads Vnesheconombank. While officials can lose access to intelligence, or worse, for failing to disclose foreign contacts, the forms are often amended to address lapses. Mr. Kushner’s aides said he was compiling that material and would share it when the F. B.I.

Report: Kushner Described As 'Aloof' And Resistant To Handling 'Messy' Parts Of His Role

The political future of Jared Kushner, White House senior adviser and President Trump’s son-in-law, may be in jeopardy. The political future of Jared Kushner, White House senior adviser and President Trump’s son-in-law, may be in jeopardy. A recent New York Times report states that “in recent weeks, the Trump-Kushner relationship, the most stable partnership in an often unstable West Wing, is showing unmistakable signs of strain.” According to the media outlet, based on inside sources, the "most serious point of contention" between the two was about a presentation Kushner’s sister gave on May 6 to Chinese investors which seemed to offer the potential for U.S. visas in exchange for a generous investment in one of the family’s real estate ventures. Meanwhile, the Times indicates that Kushner is not particularly popular with other White House staff members due to his special status with the president--reportedly resulting in the nickname “Jared Island”--along with his demeanor which has been characterized as "aloof" and reportedly, he has a "propensity for avoiding messy aspects of his job."For instance, during the days leading up to the ill-fated health care vote in March, social media posts showed him at a vacation in Aspen, Colorado. According to CNN, "Kushner did appear at the White House on Friday during the last gasps of the Obamacare repeal effort."Kushner has now become embroiled in his own controversy which began after the Washington Post reported on Friday that “Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin…” Walter Shapiro, a columnist for The Guardian, said in an op-ed that regardless of Kushner’s intention, “his life in the coming months and maybe years will be a study in misery.” Shapiro goes on to state, “Whether it is an appearance under oath on Capitol Hill or the inevitable FBI interview, every sentence Kushner utters will bring with it possible legal jeopardy.” Adrienne Watson, a communications official for the Democratic National Committee, has called for Kushner to be fired; she had previously advocated for his security clearance to be suspended while the FBI investigated him. Despite the negative reports, the president has expressed his support for his embattled son-in-law, telling the Times, “Jared is doing a great job for the country. I have total confidence in him.”

DNC Official Says Kushner Should Be Fired Over Russia Allegations

A top communications official for the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, has called for White House senior adviser Jared Kushner to be fired after a recent report that he had tried to set up a back channel with Russia. A top communications official for the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, has called for White House senior adviser Jared Kushner to be fired after a Washington Post report that he had tried to set up a back channel with Russia. On Saturday, deputy director Adrienne Watson tweeted, “Trump has no choice but to fire Kushner, whose failure to report this on his security clearance is enough for a criminal investigation.”She also reportedly released a statement which added, “The next question is whether the President authorized this, because no one stands between Trump and Kushner on the chain of command.” Watson had previously stated on May 25, “The FBI’s Russia investigation reached Trump’s backyard, and now it’s in his house. Kushner’s security clearance should be suspended until the FBI’s findings are complete.” Her more recent comments were made soon after the Post reported on Friday, “Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports.” The exchange is believed to have taken place in early December at Trump Tower.While the White House has largely remained silent on the Post report, national security adviser H.R. McMaster tried to downplay any concerns, telling reporters at a press conference, “I would not be concerned about it. We have back-channel communications with a number of countries...what that allows you to do is to communicate in a discreet manner.”

Report: Cory Booker Received Past Campaign Donations From Kushner

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, a Democrat, is facing increased scrutiny for his response to allegations against White House senior adviser Jared Kushner after reports emerged that Kushner and his family have donated generously to Booker’s campaigns in the past. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, a Democrat, is facing increased scrutiny for his response to allegations against President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner after reports emerged that Kushner and his family have reportedly donated generously to Booker’s campaigns in the past. During an interview with CNN on Sunday, the lawmaker was asked about his view on the DNC, or Democratic National Committee’s call to suspend Kushner’s security clearance amid a report that he tried to create a back-channel of communications with Russia. Booker eventually said, “I think we need to first get to the bottom of it, he needs to answer for what was happening at the time.” He then added, “It raises very serious concerns for me. And that could be a potential outcome that I seek, but I want to understand, at least hear from Jared Kushner, as well as the administration, about what was exactly going on there.” In contrast,  Adrienne Watson, a top communications official for the DNC, recently issued much stronger statements, calling for Kushner’s security clearance to be suspended, and she later tweeted that “Trump has no choice but to fire Kushner...”On Monday, the International Business Times reported that “Kushner and other donors affiliated with Kushner Cos. delivered more than $41,000 to Booker's Senate campaign in 2013, according to data compiled by PoliticalMoneyLine.com.” In fact, Politico released a story about one fundraising event for Booker that year which was hosted by Ivanka Trump and held at her Manhattan home.The International Business Times piece goes on to reveal that, in 2009, Booker’s mayoral run was boosted with a $20,000 contribution from Kushner, based on state records. It does not appear that Booker has issued a response to these allegations, but party members who were hoping he could be a strong contender in the 2020 presidential race have reportedly expressed disappointment.
