Who gave Kushner clearance?

Last week it emerged that the president ordered the White House Chief of Staff to approve top-secret clearance for Jared Kushner, despite serious concerns from the CIA and the FBI. This was after Kushner lied about his meetings with a Russian lawyer, the Russian ambassador and the head of a Russian bank in his original application for security clearance.

As a result of this interference, Kushner has privileged access to sensitive information about the USA’s interests. Do you trust him to handle these secrets responsibly, in his closed-door meetings with Saudi Arabia? I certainly do not.

Who does the president think he is, to override the best advice of the intelligence community in so serious a matter of national security?


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call Nancy Pelosi and ask her to employ all the powers of Congressional oversight to uncover the truth about Jared Kushner. Shy on the phone? Resistbot is your friend.


We have a brand new shipment of sturdy tote bags, manufactured ethically in the USA, bearing the Stand Up San Francisco logo. Tote bags will be available at general meetings; pay what you can. Huge thanks to member Laura for design and coordination!
