White House specialists who oversee security clearances rejected Jared Kushner’s application for top-secret clearance due to concerns he could be compromised by foreign influence, but were overruled by a supervisor, NBC News reported Thursday night. NBC News reported a White House personnel supervisor, Carl Kline, overruled at least 30 other rejected security-clearance applications within the Trump administration in 2017 — an unprecedented number. Kushner’s FBI background check reportedly looked into his family business, foreign contacts and meetings during the campaign, among other things. Kushner is President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and a top adviser. While Kushner ultimately received top-secret clearance, after Kline intervened Kushner attempted to get even higher-level clearance, NBC News said — SCI, or “sensitive compartmented information.” SCI gives access to the nation’s most sensitive secrets and intelligence gathering, and the CIA refused to approve his application, with one official reportedly asking how Kushner even got top-secret clearance. NBC News said Kushner still does not have access to SCI-level intelligence, unless Trump chooses to override it and share material with him. The White House refused comment, NBC News said. In July, the Washington Post first reported that Kushner still lacked the highest security clearance.
