  1. Fox News says:

    A spokesman for White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s attorney told Fox News Thursday that President Trump’s son-in-law received a top-secret security clearance through “the regular process with no pressure from anyone,” after The New York Times reported that Trump “ordered” then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to grant the clearance against the advice of then-White House Counsel Don McGhan. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/jared-kushners-team-responds-to-report-trump-ordered-security-clearance-for-son-in-law The Times report, which cited “four people briefed on the matter,” said that Trump told Kelly to grant Kushner a top-secret clearance the day after the White House Counsel’s Office recommended that he not be given one. The report claimed that Kelly was so disturbed by Trump’s command that he wrote an internal memo stating that he had been “ordered” to give Kushner the clearance.
