Source: Some White House staff worry Kushner security clearance in jeopardy

Washington( CNN) Concerns over the fate of Jared Kushner’s final security clearance have begun to creep into the West Wing.

Little more than a week after Kushner and his brother-in-law’s meeting with a Russian lawyer last summer became the focus of allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, White House officials are concerned that Kushner may not be granted a final security clearance, an administration official told CNN on Monday.

The FBI doesn’t make a recommendation about whether an individual should receive a security clearance, but conducts an investigation and sends its findings to the White House, where a staff level decision is made.
