Trump son-in-law Kushner questioned about potential Russian collusion, obstruction

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner listens during the

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner had his White House security clearance restored Wednesday, a person familiar with the matter told CNN.

The Inquisitr, which has kept tabs on the story over the last several months, reported in February this year that Kushner had amended his security clearance form multiple times, leading investigators to scrutinize his case all the more closely.

The development ends the range of rumors surrounding whether or not special counsel Robert Mueller has implicating material on Kushner.

The cause of death for the 69-year-old actress is unknown at this point, but her passing was confirmed to CNN by her manager. She dated former Canadian PM Pierre Trudeau, directors Steven Spielberg , Brian De Palma and actor Richard Pryor .

The special counsel's investigation had not caused the delay, said Mr. Kushner's lawyer, Abbe D. Lowell. He had previously sat for an interview last November that was largely focused on former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who soon after pleaded guilty to charges of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The attorney, Abbe Lowell, made the revelation to The New York Times, which also reported that Kushner had been granted a permanent security clearance after more than a year of vetting by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"In each occasion, he answered all questions asked and did whatever he could to expedite the conclusion of all the investigation", Lowell said. "Having completed all of these processes, he is looking to continue to do the work the President has asked him to do".

He said it was Mahathir's prerogative to form the cabinet, but noted he had given assurances that he will consult party leaders. Separately, Malaysia and six countries are investigating defeated prime minster Najim over corruption at the state fund 1MDB.

As the application process was pending, Kushner's "top secret/sensitive compartmented information" access was downgraded in February when White House Chief of Staff John Kelly ordered that officials with interim clearances be cut off if they hadn't received permanent clearances. And Mr. Trump, who once considered Mr. Kushner a trusted adviser, continues to tell friends he wishes that Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump would return to NY, although Mr. Trump has not voiced this view to his daughter and Mr. Kushner in several months.

Kushner was one of a number of White House aides that had been working in the administration without a permanent security clearance for the better part of a year. Then, in June, Kushner filed a third addendum acknowledging a meeting he had in June 2016 at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer offering damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

But now with the granting of his permanent security clearance, Jared Kushner has once again gained access to some of the nation's biggest secrets, which includes the presidential daily brief - a cumulative summary of all the intelligence updates the president receives from the intelligence community every day.
