House Democrats Request Kushner’s Security Clearance Be Revoked
Two House Democrats have requested that acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, revoke the security clearance for President Donald Trump's senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Business Insider reports Reps.
Don Beyer of Virginia and Ted Lieu of California sent a letter to Mulvaney on Thursday asking for Kushner's clearance to be pulled, citing a recent NBC report that a supervisor overruled the recommendation he not be approved for clearance.
The letter said, "The White House's pattern of hiding the truth and devious behavior with regard to Mr. Kushner's security clearance suggests that the Administration does not take information security seriously."
