Democratic Rep.: If Jared Kushner Can’t Handle His Job, He Should ‘Go Back to Doing Real Estate’

Congressman Ruben Gallego (D- AZ) has become the latest Democrat to say Jared Kushner should lose his security clearance.

He told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room today, regarding the reports that Kushner wanted a secret communications channel with the Kremlin, that “it really questions whether this man should have security clearance and, in my opinion, he’s not acting like a responsible adult and he should not have security clearance at this point.”

And the House Armed Services Committee member even said that Kushner may be a “liability” and he needs to do a lot of thinking about the responsibility he holds:

“He needs to realize that this is the grown-up world now. If he cannot handle his job, he needs to turn in his security clearance and go back to doing real estate in New York City.”

In a statement last night President Trump said that he has “total confidence” in his son-in-law.
