Jared Kushner’s Above Top Security Clearance Rejected by CIA

• • • •
Jared Kushner - Possible National Security Risk Kept Him from SCI

CIA officers who make clearance decisions called over to the White House security division, wondering how Kushner got even a top-secret clearance.

That’s according to a report from NBC News published last Spring. The report went on to say that “Kushner’s FBI background check identified questions about his family’s business, his foreign contacts, his foreign travel and meetings he had during the campaign, the sources said, declining to be more specific.”

Ultimately, the CIA refused to give Kushner a clearance for “sensitive compartmented information” or SCI which is above “Top-Secret”.

Jared Kushner is one of at least 25 Trump officials that were initially denied security clearance based on FBI or CIA checks.
