Jared Kushner has been operating without security clearance for over a year now, receiving daily presidential briefings with information that is more valuable than gold to certain figures around the globe. He has been named as special adviser to the President but this is just a cloak. He is in a dire financial situation with his dud of a property at 666 5th Ave in New York City, desperately trying to get his reported $1.8 billion debt refinanced.
What better or easier way to do it if your daddy in law is President than to exchange top secret information for money or promise of money after the family is out office? We can’t prove that Kushner is doing this, but the entire point of a background check and security clearance is so we can trust that he’s not doing this, and he can’t pass either of those.
Kushner’s continued updates of his financial documents show that he has received money from three separate lines of credit in the months after he joined the White House last year. Did he trade political favors, or classified intel, in exchange for these loans? Again, this is the entire point of the security clearance process, one which Trump has allowed his family to bypass.
Jared Kushner is the adviser closest to Donald Trump, the (supposed) President of the United States, who had the most dealings with Russian officials and businessmen during the campaign and transition. Some of these meetings and transactions are currently being examined by federal investigators and congressional oversight panels. The larger the financial debt that Kushner owes on 666 5th Ave, especially to lenders or guarantors who do not have America’s best interests at heart, the more he and Trump may be subject to compromising pressure or blatant blackmail. This isn’t a paperwork problem, it’s a national security threat.
