Of course,
Trump Ordered Officials to Give Jared Kushner a Security Clearance
WASHINGTON — President Trump ordered his chief of staff to grant his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, a top-secret security clearance last year, overruling concerns flagged by intelligence officials and the White House’s top lawyer, four people briefed on the matter said. :snippity:
but..

John Santucci @Santucci
NYT reporting Trump Ordered Officials to Give Jared Kushner a Security Clearance /// Ivanka Trump told @ABC just a few weeks ago "..the President had no involvement pertaining to my clearance or my husband's clearance, zero."


To which Trump replied, Fuck the law. I don't give a fuck about the law. I want my fucking money.

longish article - not good to pick a quote from
Either Abbe Lowell or Jared Kushner Is Screwed. (Maybe Both Of them)

Washington superlawyer Abbe Lowell has had himself a bad week. So has Jared Kushner.

Let me start with Lowell. I was able to watch most of Cohen’s testimony — missed part of it dealing when on the phone for a while with one of my VA practitioners. IOW I might have missed any “cleanup” on this point but post hearing coverage leads me to believe I didn’t.

From the dKos article:
Because he [Kushner] at least paid his legal bills he was able to attract top rate legal representation
I can't source this at the moment, but I remember reading somewhere that some official Republican organization is paying for Jarvanka's representation :?: Anybody else remember anything about that :?: This makes absolute sense to me, because no trump family member is going to pay his/her own way. That just never happens.

I remember reading about that, and they just re-reported on it last month

Trump campaign paid legal fees to firm representing Jared Kushner
The president's son-in-law's estimated net worth is more than $300 million.
President Donald Trump's campaign has spent nearly $100,000 of donor money to pay legal bills to the firm representing Jared Kushner, the latest campaign finance records show.

The president's re-election campaign made two payments to the firm, Winston & Strawn LLP – $55,330 and $42,574. The expenditures were payments to Kushner's attorney Abbe Lowell for Kushner’s legal fees, sources with knowledge of the payments told to ABC News. Lowell joined the firm in May 2018.

“Low dollar” contributions – $200 or less – made up 98.5 percent of the total funds raised by the Trump campaign in the last quarter of 2018, a consistent trend throughout the year, according to a press release by the campaign, along with the latest campaign finance filings.

Kushner, who is married to Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka, is a real estate scion who earned more than $1.7 million in income in 2015, the year before he joined his wife’s family to work in the White House, according to a New York Times review of confidential financial documents published in October. His net worth has been estimated at more than $300 million.

Trump using campaign, RNC funds to pay legal bills from Russia probe: sources
NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is using money donated to his re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee to pay for his lawyers in the probe of alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Following Reuters exclusive report on Tuesday, CNN reported that the Republican National Committee paid in August more than $230,000 to cover some of Trump’s legal fees related to the probe.

RNC spokesperson Cassie Smedile confirmed to Reuters that Trump’s lead lawyer, John Dowd, received $100,000 from the RNC and that the RNC also paid $131,250 to the Constitutional Litigation and Advocacy Group, the law firm where Jay Sekulow, another of Trump’s lawyers, is a partner.

The RNC is scheduled to disclose its August spending on Wednesday. The Trump campaign is due for a disclosure on Oct. 15.

I am posting this here because the players (Lieu and Beyer) aren't the same as in the other threads (House Committees).
I could be wrong. :? Hopefully, Addie will let me know Or she may want to start a new thread. :blink:

House Judiciary Committee: Trump Abuses of Power; Media, Courts, FBI, DOJ

House Oversight--Security Clearances (Kushner, Bolton, Gorka, Flynn, et al.)

Dems call for criminal probe into Kushner's security clearance

Democratic Reps. Ted Lieu (Calif.) and Don Beyer (Va.) are calling for a criminal investigation into senior White House adviser Jared Kushner's security clearance, following multiple news reports that President Trump ordered a top-secret clearance for his son-in-law despite concerns from intelligence officials.

"We are deeply disturbed by recent reports that President Trump ordered his Chief of Staff, John Kelly, to grant Jared Kushner a security clearance, overruling intelligence officials who raised concerns about the clear national security risks of doing so," the two lawmakers wrote in a Monday letter to Attorney General William Barr that was made public on Tuesday.

"Taken together with previous reports that Mr. Kushner omitted contacts with more than one hundred foreign persons on his clearance forms – including the Russian Ambassador – we request that the Department of Justice open an immediate investigation to determine if Mr. Kushner is criminally liable for his false statements," Lieu and Beyer added.

The lawmakers earlier this year called on acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to revoke Kushner's clearance, citing reports at the time about potential foreign influence on Kushner.

The most recent reports, which cite sources saying Trump ordered former White House chief of staff John Kelly to grant Kushner clearance, have ramped up Democratic calls for investigations into the security clearance process. <snip>

Scoop: The House Oversight Committee has obtained documents from a WH source related to Jared Kushner & Ivanka‘s security clearances that the Trump admin refused to provide, according to a senior Democratic aide involved in handling the documents.

Axios wrote:The twist: But the House Oversight Committee in early February had already obtained the leaked documents that detail the entire process, from the spring of 2017 to the spring of 2018, on how both Kushner and Trump were ultimately granted their security clearances.

Jared Kushner Spoke In Private To The Senate Intelligence Committee As It Probes The Russia Investigation

WASHINGTON — Members of the Senate Intelligence Committee interviewed Jared Kushner behind closed doors on Thursday morning, less than a week after the attorney general sent his report on the Mueller investigation to Congress.

Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, exited the committee’s secure space just before noon Thursday and did not answer questions. The meeting, which included several senators as well as staff, began at around 9:30 a.m.
