Last Friday someone downgraded the security clearance from Interim Top Secret/SCI to Interim Secret for Comrade Stupid’s Fratsputin, you know, Jared Kushner.
“The memo was not signed by chief of staff John Kelly, but it comes as the retired Marine general and other top White House aides are grappling with the fallout of a scandal involving former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, which revealed that dozens of White House aides had yet to receive permanent clearances but nonetheless had access to some of the country’s deepest secrets.”
…and given how this Administration works, I don’t blame ’em for not admitting that they pulled the plug on this jamoke.
But wait! There’s more! Ginsu knives! —
“Officials in at least four countries have privately discussed ways they can manipulate Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, by taking advantage of his complex business arrangements, financial difficulties and lack of foreign policy experience, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with intelligence reports on the matter.
“Among those nations discussing ways to influence Kushner to their advantage were the United Arab Emirates, China, Israel and Mexico … It is unclear if any of those countries acted on the discussions, but Kushner’s contacts with certain foreign government officials have raised concerns inside the White House and are a reason he has been unable to obtain a permanent security clearance.”
This little detail is going to get Robert Mueller’s spidey senses tingling because Fratsputin has had numerous contacts with other countries, many of whom asked to deal with him by name. It seems everyone except Comrade Stupid knows that Kushner is easily manipulated.
Will Jarvanka fight back? You bet! So, the spokesman for the attorneys released a statement that sounded like something W.C. Fields might have said if he was playing a role.
But there is an obvious problem:
