A week after the call from Rosenstein, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly announced that staff members whose clearances have not been finalized will no longer be able to view top-secret information - meaning that Kushner stood to lose his status as early as Friday.
However, when asked about his temporary security clearance, he said: "That will be up to General Kelly".
'General Kelly respects Jared a lot, ' he added. I will let the general, who is right here, make that call.
The level of Kushner's access to classified information will instead be decided by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Trump told reporters during a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Porter was likewise operating under an interim security clearance, and the ordeal exposed serious flaws and shortcomings in the White House's handling of those allegations and security clearance process.
Kushner is reportedly said to review the highly secret presidential daily brief each morning and has been in the room for some of Trump's most consequential domestic and foreign policy decisions.
The disclosure marked the latest development in an ongoing drama over Kushner's clearance, which has been held up amid questions about his background check.
Over 100 people have now died from flu this season
If there is any good news, it's that it appears the peak has been reached and the number of cases is slowly declining. While the flu shot doesn't always prevent the flu, it can minimize the symptoms and help folks recover more quickly.
"To do this particular job without a security clearance is extraordinarily hard; just by definition, you're coming into contact with classified information every single day, and much of the material the U.S. team generates is classified material", one former senior USA official told The Jerusalem Post.
Trump wants to do what he wants when he wants, and one gets the sense that although Kelly has been incredibly weak as the chief of staff, he is still the only person providing even shred of order to the chaos that is this administration. But the president is the ultimate arbiter of access to classified information, and could legally overrule any decision to deny someone a clearance.
"I won't make that call".
White House officials have complained that they have had trouble getting information from the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation about the status of delayed clearances, including Kushner's. "There is no truth to any suggestion otherwise", he said. Example, the Trump and Kushner families' massive debts they owe to banks run by Russian oligarchs, controlled by Vladimir Putin. "Everyone in the White House is grateful for these valuable contributions to furthering the president's agenda".
On Friday, at the White House news conference, Trump complained that the vetting process takes "months and months and months" even for people who don't have complex financial issues.
"I have definitely had cases over the years where there was a parallel criminal investigation ... that was happening at the same time as there was a clearance investigation", Zaid said.
