>>> 🚨Overruling the CIA, Trump directly ordered COS John Kelly to grant his son-in-law Jared #Kushner a TOP-SECRET security clearance. (Sometimes mobsters do give direct orders; shocking a US General followed them) nytimes.com/2019/02/28/us/… h/t @yashar
Trump’s decision so troubled senior administration officials that COS John Kelly wrote a contemporaneous internal memo to document he had been ORDERED to give #Kushner the top-secret security clearance. WH counsel McGahn also wrote a memo of CIA & others' concerns about Kushner.
Ivanka's truth quotient: ZERO:
>> "The president had no involvement pertaining to my clearance or my husband's clearance—zero”

(NYT reports today Trump "ordered" Kelly to overrule CIA and grant Kushner top-secret security clearance. See above)
Needless to say, Trump himself lied about #Kushner's security clearance. He said in January that he played NO ROLE in directing WH officials to arrange for Kushner to get a top-secret clearance over CIA/FBI objections. nytimes.com/2019/01/31/us/… #NationalSecurityThreatPOTUS🚨
🤯Both Kushner & Ivanka complained to Trump about their security clearances. They told friends & advisers Kelly & McGahn were targeting them for "petty" reasons, not legitimate concerns flagged by officials. (Ivanka seems to have her father's skill at lying to people on camera.)
The more abnormal and alarming the lies and crimes, the more that DOJ OLC memo guidance that a sitting President shouldn't be indicted becomes absurd and dangerous. The sirens are going off inside Trump's own administration. That's why Comey, Kelly, McGahn documented it in memos.
Trump ordering top-secret clearance for #Kushner—despite known security risks (⬇️)—supports McCabe's warnings that Trump is a national security threat. That he, Ivanka, their spox lied about it says to me that the FBI/Mueller counterintelligence investigation is alive & kicking.
Ivanka categorically denied Trump's involvement in their security clearances. Just as boldly #Kushner lawyer Abbe Lowell said last May it was a "normal" FBI & intelligence community process. "Nobody in the political process had anything to do with it."
Brilliant @NicolleWallace juxtaposes the "network of coordinated lies" (by Trump, Ivanka, Abbe Lowell, KAC, WH) claiming Trump didn't intervene for #Kushner's security clearance (Trump did—overruling CIA/FBI) and Republicans' fake outrage about "pathological liar" Michael Cohen.
"The president has the absolute right to do what was described"—SO KellyAnne Conway confirms BOTH that (dictator) Trump ordered #Kushner get top-secret security clearance over intelligence objections AND that Ivanka, Trump, Lowell lied abt it? via @atrupar
