Sarah Kendzior, an author and regular guest on MSNBC’s AM Joy, railed against President Donald Trump‘s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner as a “massive national security risk” who should be indicted.

An AM Joy panel Saturday discussed latest reporting that Trump ordered former chief of staff John Kelly to give Kushner a top secret clearance last year, despite protests from intelligence officials and a top White House lawyer. Both Trump and his daughter Ivanka — a White House adviser and Kushner’s wife — denied on the record that the president had anything to do with their security clearances.

“Basically, Trump has been grooming those two for a dynastic kleptocracy,” Kendzior claimed. “This is very common. This is something you see in autocracies, this is something you see in mafia states, where the leader will put his children or relatives into office in order to keep the corruption going, keep the money flowing, not get caught, override prosecution.”

“This is like the 12th time I’ve been on your show talking about Jared Kushner,” Kendzior continued, “and the fact that he lied on his clearance forms, that he’s done illicit dealings, that he’s giving away state secrets and that he’s a massive national security risk. And so is Ivanka Trump. The only way that we would be able to finally stop having this conversation on national TV is if he is indicted! That is is what needs to be done. Because this problem is enormous. It’s going to persevere. Even if he is gone, he is carrying around this information, other people are carrying around classified information. They do not have loyalty to the country. They have debt. They have financial interests. They have personal interests.”

“This problem needs to be handled now,” she said. “Just indict Jared Kushner! Indict Ivanka Trump and get this crime family out of the white House!”
