Jared Kushner omits some foreign contacts on security form

Posted April 09, 2017

Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and a senior adviser to the President, has yet to detail to the federal government all of his foreign contacts, a condition of receiving his top secret security clearance, CNN has learned.

According to Politico, the main source of disagreement between Bannon and Kushner centers around policy differences.

A White House official disputed the reports, saying White House chief of staff Reince Priebus held a meeting with Bannon and Kushner to "get them on the same page", according to CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

The visitors have Sam Querrey and Steve Johnson listed to play Sam Groth and John Peers but that can all change until an hour before play.

But after his removal from the National Security Council, Bannon said his job was done and offered a different explanation for his role. Bannon "recently vented to us about Jared being a "globalist" and a "cuck".

Kushner, one source with knowledge tells CNN, had "lots of contacts" with foreign officials, since he was "the person to whom people from foreign nations were routed" during the Trump transition.

The White House has denied reports of internal strife.

Just yesterday, Axios published a piece quoting "close Bannon ally" who said the former Breitbart News editor planned to push back against Kushner. While one pro-Trump outside group has been stoking support online for the decision, another has been silent - a reflection of what appears to be divergent views inside the White House.

The NSC shift, over which Bannon allegedly threatened to quit, coincided with Kushner being given more responsibility and the president's daughter Ivanka being hired in an official role in the West Wing. Last week, Cohen-Watnick was revealed as one of the White House officials who gathered information that was later provided to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) to try to bolster Trump's claim that the Obama administration illegally spied on him.

Many Trump loyalists have long advocated for Trump to fire Priebus, who they believe was insufficiently loyal over the course of the campaign.

In 2014, Misbah smashed a century in both innings as he led Pakistan to their first series win against Australia in 20 years. In 2016, Misbah also became the first Pakistani to play 50 matches as Test captain in a Test series against New Zealand.

But Kushner, Trump's loyal son-in-law, is getting all the prime White House assignments these days, as well as central seating in the president's National Security briefing on Thursday's USA military air strikes against a Syrian air field. He'll never be viewed the same way again in liberal NY society after having taken such a prominent role in "the enemy's" administration.
