Should Jared Kushner still be allowed to work in the White House?

President Trump’s son-in-law and chief advisor, Jared Kushner, is under FBI investigation. He was part of Donald Trump, Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer, attempting to acquire damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Kushner also failed to disclose other meetings with Russian officials and wanted to create a secret channel between Moscow and Trump officials. But Kushner hasn't been accused of any crime, and defenders say revoking his clearance or firing him would be premature. What do you think? 🤐

California Rep. Ted Lieu is demanding Kushner's security clearance be revoked. The newly revealed meeting with the Russian lawyer is just one example of Kushner concealing information on his security clearance forms.

Despite claims that Kushner was unaware of the meeting's purpose before it took place, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding clarity about why he and other top campaign officials agreed to meet with an individual tied to a hostile nation—especially under the pretext of receiving potentially damaging information about a political opponent

Even Republicans want to know why Kushner still has a White House job, particularly one where he has access to our most sensitive national secrets.

But others are calling Jared's actions missteps, not crimes. They're attributing his mistakes to inexperience.

Several top officials describe Jared Kushner in very similar ways: a good guy with good intentions, now under rising scrutiny because of a combination of naiveté and hubris. He was used to how things were done in business (and New York real estate, no less)—whereas in public life, anything can come out, and everything is under a microscope.

And others say the scandal is overblown, and this is just one more example of partisan politics being used to damage the president's staff.

Even New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker said it would be too soon to revoke Kushner's clearance.
