Rep Ted Lieu: Jared Kushner ‘Lied And His Security Clearance Should Be Revoked’
— AM Joy w/Joy Reid (@amjoyshow) April 15, 2017
Reports from last week indicated that Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner failed to disclose some Russian meetings while submitting the forms to get top-level security clearance. Governmental officials are not thrilled.
Representative Ted Lieu, a Democrat from California, said this to MSNBC’s Joy Reid today:
Kushner’s security clearance absolutely should be suspended. I’ve filled out these forms before … one of the reasons you have thisform is to figure out if the person had contacts with foreign officials. Jared Kushner intentionally omitted his various contacts and he knew these contact were important because of the whole Russia scandal that’s been developing. He lied and he needs to have his security clearance revoked.
Kushner’s lawyer has called the omissions an “oversight.”
