There still are dozens of White House officials who lack permanent security clearances. The most prominent is President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner. The White House has maintained that the delay in Kushner’s clearance is “completely normal,” and that extra scrutiny is involved for advisers like Kushner who require the highest level of security clearance. It is entirely abnormal, however, as Kushner has had to amend his SF-86 clearance form dozens of times after he omitted key meetings with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyack, the head of state-run Vnesheconombank Sergey Gorkov, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, among nearly 100 others. He has amended his financial disclosure form 39 times.
