Jared Kushner's security clearance has been restored

Jared Kushner's security clearance has been restored

The New York Times, which first broke the news of Kushner getting his security clearance, notes that the process took almost a year and a half, which Trump administration officials claim was due to Kushner's complex foreign business dealings.

It is not clear when Kushner's second interview with Mueller's investigators took place.

Kushner lost his access to the nation's deepest secrets when White House chief of staff John Kelly downgraded his clearance due to questions that arose during Kushner's background briefing.

Tuesday, Trump signed a bill mandating that the White House Office of Administration report to Congress on the cause of backlogs in security clearances.

Kushner's security clearance reinstatement comes after a second meeting he had with Mueller in April, in which he answered questions for seven hours. "Having accomplished these processes, Mr. Kushner is trying ahead to persevering with the work the President has requested him to do". Kushner took part in a limited interview with Mueller a year ago, mainly focused on former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, a person familiar with the process has said.

Kushner's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said Mueller's probe did not delay the process. "Since then, he has continued this entire cooperation, offering a lot of paperwork and sitting for hours of interview with congressional committees and offering quite a few paperwork and sitting for 2 interviews with the Workplace of Particular Counsel".

The first interview with Kushner occurred last fall.

White Home senior adviser Jared Kushner just lately obtained his full safety clearance, Fox Information realized Wednesday.

"They talk about stories about him being under investigation for his finances, for his role in his companies - let me tell you, those were not the topics", he said.

Career officials approved the clearance following the background check, the newspaper reported. He could lose his clearance tomorrow if he is indicted.

Kushner serves as a senior adviser on the Middle East and other issues.

But a law enforcement source told that a major stumbling block was Kushner's failure, even on his re-submitted application, to mention the now-famous 2016 Trump Tower meeting attended by Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

But Kushner's access eventually drew significant scrutiny because of a number of errors on his security clearance forms, including dozens of foreign contacts he had failed to disclose.
