CBS Reporter Posts Video of Secret Service Blocking Him from Asking Jared a Question: ‘There’s a Time and Place’
Jared Kushner did not answer my question and the secret service informs me, while obscuring my phone, that despite identifying as WH press, there is a “time and a place” for questions.
It is unclear when and where that is. pic.twitter.com/KRzlj3hrqw

CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett posted a video tonight of Secret Service blocking him from asking Jared Kushner a question.
You can see in the video above that Barnett attempted to ask Kushner something, but before he could finish the question, the camera was obscured and presumably one of the Secret Service agents told him, “I don’t give a damn who you are. There’s a time and place.”
Barnett later posted a statement from a Secret Service spokesperson saying, “The Secret Service is aware of the video posted on Twitter today by @errolbarnett. The circumstances surrounding the incident are under review. Pending receipt of additional facts, details and full circumstances surrounding the incident, appropriate action will be taken if necessary. No further comment will be made until the incident is able to be fully reviewed.”
