Jared Kushner receives permanent security clearance

Share

Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump and his son-in-law, has had his security clearance restored, allowing him access to classified information after losing the privilege in the fallout over a fired White House aide, his lawyer said on Wednesday.

Mueller's investigators are examining Kushner's business dealings during the presidential transition, and CNN has reported that other witnesses were asked about these matters in interviews earlier this year.

Lowell disputed that the initial security clearance application played any role in the delay in Kushner receiving his final clearance.

Kushner and several other White House employees were working under provisional clearances that allowed them to see classified material while the Federal Bureau of Investigation checks were under way.

A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment.

Kushner has been fashioning a plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace that his team says is all but complete, and it will be rolled out in the coming weeks and months "when the timing is right".

"A year ago, Jared was one of the first to voluntarily cooperate with any investigation into the 2016 campaign and related topics", Lowell said in a statement.

Kushner's permission to view top secret information was revoked in February after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly declared a moratorium on temporary security clearances. "On each occasion, he answered all questions asked and did everything he could to expedite the conclusion of all the investigations". "Throughout the process, Mr. Kushner has continued to work on a number of foreign policy and domestic issues with no interruption".

Abbe Lowell, who has represented Kushner in the Russian Federation investigation, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that Kushner answered all the questions that were asked during Kushner's second interview with the Mueller team.

Initially, Kushner did not list his foreign contacts on the form, though he submitted an addendum indicating he was willing to detail them.

Kushner, who is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, attended a meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016 with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, Donald Trump Jr., and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
