You know maybe Putin has more than one puppet in the White House.

Jared Kushner’s application for a top secret clearance was rejected by two career White House security specialists after an FBI background check raised concerns about potential foreign influence on him — but their supervisor overruled the recommendation and approved the clearance, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

The official, Carl Kline, is a former Pentagon employee who was installed as director of the personnel security office in the Executive Office of the President in May 2017. Kushner’s was one of at least 30 cases in which Kline overruled career security experts and approved a top secret clearance for incoming Trump officials despite unfavorable information, the two sources said. They said the number of rejections that were overruled was unprecedented — it had happened only once in the three years preceding Kline’s arrival.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information, said the Trump White House attracted many people with untraditional backgrounds who had complicated financial and personal histories, some of which raised red flags.

Kushner’s FBI background check identified questions about his family’s business, his foreign contacts, his foreign travel and meetings he had during the campaign, the sources said, declining to be more specific.

Eventually, Kushner’s application. along with the recommendations, was forwarded to the CIA which makes the final determination.

Here is how that went:

After reviewing the file, CIA officers who make clearance decisions balked, two of the people familiar with the matter said. One called over to the White House security division, wondering how Kushner got even a top secret clearance, the sources said. Top secret information is defined as material that would cause “exceptionally grave damage” to national security if disclosed to adversaries.

The sources say the CIA has not granted Kushner clearance to review SCI material. That would mean Kushner lacks access to key intelligence unless President Trump decides to override the rules, which is the president’s’ prerogative. The Washington Post reported in July 2018 that Kushner was not given an “SCI” clearance. CIA spokesman Timothy Barrett said, “The CIA does not comment on individual security clearances.”

Both the White House and Kushner’s attorneys have refused to comment on this story, but if true that means Jared Kushner does not have the security clearance to engage in the top-secret negotiations in which Trump claims he is taking point

So, who do we think might have kompromat on Jared Kushner?

    While I was pleased to hear that Roger Stone was indicted, I must admit that I had been hoping it would be Little Jared. I’d love to see that sneering face of his brought down.

      Give Mueller a week or so, maybe Jared and donnie jr can share a cell.

      Glad to hear the Democrats are going to look into this.

    I cringe to think how many secrets have been given to the russians and how much damage trump and his band of criminals have done to our national security.

    Seriously, does anyone think that if Trump wasn’t the president that HE would ever be granted even a low level security clearance?

      I remember is when he was ‘elected,’ he immediately had clearance to everything and I thought, :”oh FUCK.”
      A thought that remains to this day.

    I can’t wait until this mealy mouthed little weasel, his phony plastic wife and Dotard Jr are all hauled off to jail. They need to be locked up for life and stripped of every single penny.

      By the way, where is the third wife? Last I heard, she was flying off to Mar-a-Lago, at our expense, and since then . . . nothing but silence. Oh, there was the tweet the weekend before MLK day about how proud she was of “her service” to the country over the past two years. What? No one told her that the idea is that, on MLK Day, people like her actually do something to help people. Remember how the Obamas would help paint a classroom or work in a food pantry? The third wife’s notion of “public service” is flying off to a foreign country for a day and wasting huge amounts of taxpayer money so that she can change her clothes several times. And then there was the rushed trip to the border to visit the children her husband had separated from their families. She did that wearing the infamous (“I really don’t care. Do u?”) jacket. Great service. We could do without it.

    How did Donald drump get security Clarence or pass a background check to be on the ballot for us president? The guy is a walking criminal record, financial compromised mess along with cheat, liar and thief. It has been said that he had someone in the Federal Election Committee that rigged it for him. Same thing in background checks for Flynn, jr, and rest of the crooks. RIGGED.
