“Trump son-in-law, adviser Kushner loses access to top intelligence briefing: sources Posted:Tue, 27 Feb 2018 17:09:28 -0500 WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner, has lost access to the most valued U.S. intelligence report, the President’s Daily Brief, as the White House imposes greater discipline on access to secrets, two U.S. officials familiar with the matter said on Tuesday. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/PoliticsNews/~3/JZChM6eN_Y4/trump-son-in-law-adviser-kushner-loses-access-to-top-intelligence-briefing-sources-idUSKCN1GB2VE
In 2002 Manafort’s wife received a loan from a bank chaired by Jared Kushner’s father. Manafort’s real estate and loans are under intense scrutiny by the US Special Counsel’s Office (Mueller). Her father, Joseph Bond, just suspiciously died. Although he was elderly, the timing is suspicious.

“July 13, 2017 Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi of the House Oversight Committee called upon acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to inform Congress of the counterintelligence and national security vulnerabilities created by White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner’s reported failure to disclose more than 100 foreign contacts on his security clearance application.
These undisclosed interactions included meeting with representatives of the Kremlin and a lawyer purported to be a Russian government agent illicitly offering the Trump campaign information on behalf of the Putin regime.
Congressman Krishnamoorthi released the following statement on his letter to acting FBI Director McCabe:
“Today I wrote to the FBI’s leadership to request they inform Congress as to the counterintelligence and national security vulnerabilities created by Mr. Kushner’s repeated failure to disclose his meetings with representatives of the Kremlin and entities closely aligned with it.
A full and accurate application for a security clearance is essential for identifying an applicant’s vulnerabilities to bribery, extortion, and blackmail. Additionally, the failure to accurately complete a security clearance application, the SF-86 form, can itself leave an individual compromised to foreign influence, as former acting Attorney General Sally Yates noted about General Michael Flynn’s similar omissions…..”. https://krishnamoorthi.house.gov/media/press-releases/congressman-krishnamoorthi-authors-letter-fbi-leadership-requesting-it-inform (Emphasis added).

July 11, 2017 Press Release
“Veterans of Republican and Democratic presidential campaigns have come forth to say that if they were approached by a foreign source promising information on an opponent, they would have contacted the FBI. When the Trump campaign’s senior leadership was offered information from the Kremlin as part of an effort to help the campaign, they met with someone they believed to be a Russian government agent.”
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi released the following statement in response to the revelation that Donald J. Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Mr. Trump’s friend Rob Goldstone and Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Kremlin-linked lawyer, under the auspices of Ms. Veselnitskaya’s providing damaging material from Russia on Hillary Clinton:
“Donald Trump Jr. has admitted and documented that he, Jared Kushner, and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer with the understanding that she was a Russian government lawyer providing damaging information on Hillary Clinton as part of Moscow’s effort to help President Trump’s campaign. The attempt by these top Trump advisors – to solicit the support of a hostile foreign power to win the American presidency – is unprecedented in our history.
Veterans of Republican and Democratic presidential campaigns have come forth to say that if they were approached by a foreign source promising information on an opponent, they would have contacted the FBI. When the Trump campaign’s senior leadership was offered information from the Kremlin as part of an effort to help the campaign, they met with someone they believed to be a Russian government agent.
The need for Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation and our Congressional inquiries to continue has never been more clear. I have no doubts as to the Special Counsel and his team’s readiness to do its part in fully pursuing all criminal investigations related to these revelations but Congress must fulfill its responsibility. Pending any investigation, no one who participated in the Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya should have access to any classified information, especially material relevant to our national security.
Furthermore, all those who participated in the Trump Tower meeting must testify under oath before Congress. Mr. Trump, Mr. Manafort, Mr. Kushner, Mr. Goldstone, and Ms. Veselnitskaya must disclose to Congress the nature and details of their conversations, including any sources in the Kremlin.” https://krishnamoorthi.house.gov/media/press-releases/congressman-raja-krishnamoorthi-condemns-attempt-trump-advisors-gain-russian
