Trump ordered top-secret security clearance for Jared Kushner despite concerns of John Kelly, intel officials


Via: FLYNAVY1  •  109 comments  •  2 weeks ago
President Donald Trump early last year directed his then-chief of staff, John Kelly, to give presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner a top-secret security clearance - a move that made Kelly so uncomfortable that he documented the request in writing, according to current and former administration officials. After Kushner, a senior White House adviser, and his wife, Ivanka Trump, pressured the...

Mar 04 10:24am @3.1.3 You're right, it isn't trmp. It's Neo-Cons like Pence and Bolton
Mar 04 10:23am @2.2.3 I think the background work only takes about 6-8 weeks. I know that I had a secret security clearance by the time I got to my first duty station. A top secret would most definitely take longer but...

President Trump announced Saturday he intends to sign an executive order mandating colleges and universities take steps to guarantee free speech to attain federal research grants. "We reject oppressive speech codes, censorship, political correctness and every other attempt by the hard left to stop people from challenging ridiculous and dangerous ideas. These ideas are dangerous," Trump...

Mar 04 1:11pm @1.3.48 I think what Jasper is missing here is that trmp is the "government". Mrs Robinson getting into someone's face at a restaurant is not the government suppressing free speech.

Mar 04 9:06am @5.1.9 I'm all right. I feel bad for my brother's children because they hadn't seen him in probably 5-10 years before he passed away. I hadn't seen in him in probably the same amount of time after I threw...

A Virginia state employee has complained that her eighth-grade daughter was upset during a tour of the historic governor’s residence when first lady Pam Northam handed raw cotton to her and another African American child and asked them to imagine being enslaved and having to pick the crop. “The Governor and Mrs. Northam have asked the residents of the Commonwealth to forgive them for their...

After three years of relentless hair-on-fire Trump crap I don't believe anyone, anymore. Come on, people, get off the crapper and flush it! (Seeder's edit, just because ...) Everyone already knows Trump is a liar.  People knew Trump was a liar when he defeated the other liar on the ballot.   Another liar's 'truth' isn't going to tell people more than they already know.

Mar 01 12:53pm @2.1.23 "..." I hope Wally is getting the big bucks for that horrendous job
Mar 01 12:48pm @1.1.6 I'd say it's more of a matter of comprehension. Cohen says he saw no collusion therefore there must not have been collusion. I'm beginning to think some folks got C's in English

Roughly one week ago, my wife was diagnosed with a form of cancer … and, among other reactions and behaviors on my part, both rational and irrational, I went missing from TheNewstalkers, and, in addition, considered other actions that would have no bearing on her diagnosis. Of course, my realistic and first priority is to be supportive of my wife's day-to-day, mundane, spousal and...

House Democrats exploded in recriminations Thursday over moderates bucking the party, with liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatening to put those voting with Republicans “on a list” for a primary challenge. In a closed-door session, a frustrated Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) lashed out at about two dozen moderates and pressured them to get on board. “We are either a team or we’re...

On the 210th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birthday, the Discovery Institute is going public with a list of more than 1,000 Ph.D. scientists who declared their skepticism toward Darwin's mechanism for evolution: natural selection acting on random mutation. This mechanism is the centerpiece of Neodarwinism, the current but eroding consensus on how evolution took place. "We are...

I admit that I don’t really dislike Bill Maher. Yes, he’s liberal. Yes, he mocks conservatives, but he also takes his side to task for their anti-free speech antics, their political correctness overload, and their obliviousness to how antithetical radical Islam is to Western values, and how it’s a problem. On the other hand, he’s totally part of the snobby elitist wing of liberal America who...
