WASHINGTON — President Trump ordered his chief of staff to grant his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, a top-secret security clearance last year, overruling concerns flagged by intelligence officials and the White House’s top lawyer, four people briefed on the matter said.
Mr. Trump’s decision in May so troubled senior administration officials that at least one, the White House chief of staff at the time, John F. Kelly, wrote a contemporaneous internal memo about how he had been “ordered” to give Mr. Kushner the top-secret clearance.
The White House counsel at the time, Donald F. McGahn II, also wrote an internal memo outlining the concerns that had been raised about Mr. Kushner — including by the C.I.A. — and how Mr. McGahn had recommended that he not be given a top-secret clearance.
The disclosure of the memos contradicts statements made by the president, who told The New York Times in January in an Oval Office interview that he had no role in his son-in-law receiving his clearance.
No I wouldn't expect Trump to say something.. let alone do something because he's a little bitch when he's off Twitter. And even after cowering on that subject he came back empty handed like a little bitch.. At least Putin gave the dictator slut a soccer ball for keeping his asshole open..
Vice did a thing about people who believed that tweet, crossed into Canada to get away from the bad orange man, and they regretted it after finding out Canada has stricter immigration laws than the US.
