3 Democrats want re­view of Kush­ner clear­ance

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - NATION & WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON — Three Se­nate Democrats are call­ing on the White House to re­view and pos­si­bly re­voke Jared Kush­ner’s se­cu­rity clear­ance.

Kush­ner is a se­nior ad­viser to Trump and his son-in-law. Along with other Trump of­fi­cials, he at­tended a June 2016 meet­ing with a Rus­sian lob­by­ist who in­di­cated she had dam­ag­ing in­for­ma­tion about Demo­crat Hil­lary Clin­ton.

Kush­ner dis­closed the meet­ing on his se­cu­rity clear­ance pa­per­work, but Democrats have ques­tioned how much he dis­closed.

Demo­cratic Sens. Richard Blu­men­thal of Con­necti­cut, Al Franken of Min­nesota and Mazie Hirono of Hawaii say in a let­ter to the White House that given the meet­ing, Kush­ner’s top ac­cess “may pose a dan­ger to this coun­try.”
