President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, a senior White House adviser, still lacks the highest security clearance, the Washington Post reported Thursday night, so he has been blocked from seeing parts of the President’s Daily Brief. Experts told the Post that that could be severely hamper him from doing his job. In May, Kushner finally received a permanent security clearance after more than a year in his White House position. But the Post reported he only has “top secret” clearance, which prevents him from seeing the most classified materials. The CIA appears to have not yet approved Kushner’s higher access, the Post said, though it was unclear exactly why. Kushner has been interviewed twice by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators, and his name has come up on a number of occasions in the Russian meddling investigation.
