Over the past 3 weeks two sources provided The Sparrow Project with tips related to Jared Kushner's security clearance and inability to pass an FBI background check
These tips on Jared Kushner's clearance were provided to us by intermediaries but originated from what appears to be a former WH staff person(s).
These tips related to why Jared Kushner was unable to obtain permanent top secret security clearance and provide a possible reason why he was unable to pass his FBI background check.
It is important to underscore that any tip originating from the White House or former WH staff should be considered with the utmost caution. The WH internally is even more divisive then they project, backstabbing is real, and fake tips have become a real problem.
These tips should be handled with the same caution, but the developing story around Jared Kushner has introduced a new variable.
The tip centers on Jared Kushner's beleaguered 666 5th Avenue property and US authorities interception of a phone call wherein Jared attempts to unload a portion of that property.
The source was unclear as to who was the target of the phone intercept, but they implied the individual speaking to Jared Kushner may likely have been the target of the intercept. The call was immediately flagged by the FBI.
According to one source this call took place at some point during the transition, and that the individual on the other end was "a Saudi National, or a Qatari"...
When pressed on the "either or" part the source made it clear that they are uncertain if more than one phone call has become the target of FBI scrutiny — Implying that additional calls may have been discovered after the initial intercept accidentally caught the first one.
The source further clarified that the intercepted material from the first accidentally intercepted call (and the possible subsequent calls) was now with the Mueller investigation. This made it impossible for the FBI to make the recommendation for security clearance.
The result was Jared Kushner's temporary interim clearance that Kelly downgraded today. But this was the least troubling element of the source's allegation regarding Kushner.
It was unclear to what extent the source was projecting their own analysis on the Jared Kushner tip, but they intimated that Mueller may be investigating whether the dubious Saudi Arms Deal may have included a possible caveat regarding something to do with 666 5th Avenue.
I must underscore that this part should be viewed as conjecture at best, and will absolutely need to be verified by journalists before claiming it is a fact. But, if true it would be explosive.
At the heart of this Jared Kushner security clearance downgrade story is a silent cosign that he is under investigation. Something we all sort of assumed, but at the end of the day it has little to do with the public's prevailing #TrumpRussia interests.
It is a story of debt, how that debt made Jared Kushner vulnerable to foreign influence, and they he made it easy by going to them first.
Several media outlets have started to produce versions of this same story, with Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and China being used interchangeably when referring possible investigation avenues being pursued. It may be all of them. This source may have shared only a piece they saw.
It is my opinion that we will see this thread further clarified in the weeks and months ahead, but three things will remain in whatever story emerges on the other side: ...

Jared Kushner's debt, Donald Trump's nepotism, and the unfettered kleptocracy of this administration.
Almost a year later, we are starting to see the core of this story be reported out. Developing story from @NBCNews:
