    Kushner's Permanent Top Secret Clearance Granted

    On Thursday, Trump advisor Jared Kushner’s top secret clearance was restored. That approval came just a few months after Kushner’s temporary top secret security clearance had been downgraded after delays in completing his background check. In February, the White House Personnel Security Office, based on information from the FBI, had instead given Kushner secret clearance. The New York Times reported then:

    [T]he complicated finances surrounding Mr. Kushner’s family’s vast real estate empire and his qualifications for the foreign policy responsibilities given to him by his father-in-law invited scrutiny from the start… The decision to reduce his access to classified information was made after John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, announced plans to overhaul the security clearance process at the White House after the resignation ofRob Porter, Mr. Trump’s staff secretary, amid allegations of spousal abuse. The change in Mr. Kushner’s clearance was first reported by Politico.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    “Moral precepts are constant through the ages and not obedient to circumstances.”

    I would sure like to know how Huma Abedin got a top secret clearance.

    Or Barack Obama. By normal travel reporting (or lack of) he wasn't qualified for a clearance.
    President Trump, the most qualified POTUS in the last 9 years!

    Neither was Bill Clinton.

    So much for that.


    Not that I think very much of him, but the delays in getting a clearance were not his doing.
