Ted Lieu Statement on Jared Kushner

https://lieu.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/rep-lieu-statement-nytimes-story-jared-kushners-security-clearance

Ted Lieu is actually telling US intel agencies to refuse giving Jared Kushner any intelligence information. That's crazy and obviously absolutely necessary.

1. "Do not share top secret information with Jared Kushner."

“Now we know why Jared Kushner still has a security clearance: Trump allegedly ordered it despite the red flags raised by the CIA and FBI and White House lawyers. Career security clearance professionals believed Jared Kushner was enough of a national security risk that he should not get a top secret clearance.

And now I have a message for our national security, defense and intelligence community: Do not share top secret information with Jared Kushner. Trust the career professionals. Do the right thing. Your loyalty is to America, not to Kushner or Trump."

3. There are more than a few things about the office of the Presidency that obviously need to be fixed.

Unfortunately at present, Trump has the authority to grant clearance to anyone he wishes. Kushner will continue to receive classified information until he, Trump, or both are ejected from the White House.

4. But granting a security clearance can be a crime

 

if it's done for corrupt reasons. Giving Jared secrets to sell to Saudi Arabia is not only abuse of power, it's conspiracy to commit espionage.

5. That's walking one hell of a long road. Trump gave Prince Jared all kinds of jobs for which

he can argue the security clearance was granted. This doesn't make me happy in the least, but I do think it's critical to remain realistic when we look at these things. You're talking about a legal remedy. That requires rather extensive evidence. We're going to have to be very precise and waterproof in our approach to the removal of Trump Inc.™

The pressure to remove Prince Jared's clearance right now will have to be political, and I believe there is a good chance that could be successful.

6. We already know that he was rejected for clearance at all levels

Until Carl Klein was appointed apparently just to give him clearance over everyone's head. Lawrence O'Donnell was just reporting on this and showed footage of Trump lying when he was asked about this by reporters. He said he wasn't involved and didn't think he'd "have the authority" to do that anyway.
