Roger Stone claimed on Alex Jones that Kushner was leaking anti-Bannon stuff to MSNBC:
This sounds like Kushner is winning the battle for liberals vs. patriots.
I agree. Kushner is a liberal. So is his wife.
Just seeing the headline made me think the same as you.
Good point. The move seems curious, but I distinctly remember posting right here on FreeRepublic that it seemed odd for a guy to be on the NSC when his resume was dominated by political and media credentials.
Thanks. I saw that last night and if true, it’s a bad sign.
There goes the Susan Rice story for the rest of the week...
You are correct and it makes one wonder what is happening with Drudge when he has such a headline and only a headline that links to the Bloomberg report that does not mention a word about Bannon and his security clearance.
Unless Drudge has backroom information in addition to the Bloomberg report, Drudge needs to clarify or retract.
Here’s a posting using the same article;
I know. I never expected to see Drudge get it wrong like that. Nothing in the article suggests he has been striped of his clearance.
At least no democrats like Susan Rice suffered any losses/s
Yep, it takes away the "they do it too" stuff when Susan Rice gets prosecuted.
Yeah, losing your Security Clearance is a real big deal. I wonder how long he had it. He’d need at least a TS, and that means background investigation. So when was the BI done?
Yet another epic Trump fail...we've gone from outright treason under the Kenyan usurper to mass chaos under a shameless opportunist.
This doesn’t look good, but I want more info. For example, just because he’s not on NSA doesn’t mean he doesn’t have SELECTIVE classified access. It would just mean he’s not in on the meetings and can’t access ALL classified info.
But neither Jared or Ivanka are anywhere close to that access.
Rush just said his security clearance has been stripped too.
Rush just led off with it.
But that’s what Drudge’s red headlines say. I sent him a message to clarify.
There will be more shakeups as the Trump administration settles in. No doubt McMaster is assembling the NSC team he wants. Hopefully, Bannon remains in the administration.
Maybe being a National Security guy requires a very different skill-set than being a good journalist.
High level clearances go hand in hand with the positions that require them.
I can’t argue with that.
