Kushner loses access to top intelligence briefing

Postby oneh2obabe » Feb 27th, 2018, 5:10 pm

U.S. President Donald Trump's son-in-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner, has lost access to the most valued U.S. intelligence report, the President's Daily Brief, as the White House imposes greater discipline on access to secrets, two U.S. officials familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

Kushner, who has been operating under an interim security clearance for about a year, had his access to the highly classified briefing cut off in the past few weeks, said the sources.

A third official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein recently passed new information to White House Counsel Don McGahn that led to the slowing or stopping of Kushner's pending clearance application. The nature of that information was not clear.

It also is unclear if and when Kushner's access to the briefing, known as the PDB, which requires clearance higher than the Top Secret level, would be reinstated.

If he has seen classified info on military programs...and has Russian friends, it could prove to be a dangerous situation. If he talks anyway.
Most things that have the words "Canada", or "provincial" and "system", end up being a failure, and/or place last in the developed world.
