Eshoo Calls for Suspension of Jared Kushner’s Security Clearance

June 6th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— On June 1st, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) joined with 52 House colleagues in calling for the security clearance of senior advisor and son-in-law to the President, Jared Kushner, to be suspended. The letter follows multiple reports that Kushner is a subject of the FBI’s ongoing probe into possible collusion between Russian officials and the Trump campaign.

“Every day we receive more troubling reports about this Administration’s complete disregard for our national security,” Congresswoman Eshoo said. “Reports that Jared Kushner met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and Vnesheconombank, and did not report in U.S. disclosure forms that he had participated in these meetings raises national security concerns. He also reportedly asked the Russians to set up secret channels for future meetings. These are material omissions that potentially amount to a criminal offense.”

Last week, it was widely reported that Jared Kushner is now a subject of the FBI’s investigation. Kushner reportedly met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and other Russian officials to discuss the opening of a secret line of communication between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin. Kushner then failed to disclose this and other meetings with Russian officials on his application for a security clearance. Knowingly falsifying or concealing information on this application is a felony.
