Kelly and Kushner stuck at an impasse after Trump's punt on clearance

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump’s decision to punt the issue of whether Jared Kushner can keep his access to sensitive government secrets without a full security clearance to his chief of staff, John Kelly, has put him in a tricky position, stuck between the rules on one side and the president’s family on the other.

Trump's ad hoc decision not to intervene in the clearance process on behalf of his son-in-law and senior adviser in effect left Kelly and Kushner in limbo, prolonging an uncomfortable situation that White House aides say is unlikely to be resolved anytime soon.

Kelly does not plan to recommend to the president that he grant Kushner a waiver, but he is unlikely to resign if Trump ultimately decides to do so, according to a person familiar with his thinking.

“If it starts preventing him from doing what he wants to do, he’ll figure out a workaround,” a senior administration official said of Kushner’s security clearance troubles. “All of this stuff is basically just cosmetic talk.”

1. Too bad these arent Democrats, they would last all of ONE day without a clearance.

While presidents do have people in limbo with clearance sometime, what no president does is have clearly compromised, clearly treasonous people with clearance.

5. He doesn't even fire people directly. He finds someone else to do it for him.

9. What qualifications does this guy have and how crazy is this:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has complained more than once about the perceived encroachment on his turf by Kushner, who is responsible for Israeli-Palestinian issues but also deals, at times, with the U.S. relationship with Mexico and China, as well as by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. “We can’t have four secretaries of state,” Tillerson has said.
