Kushner Fights to Keep Access to Top Secret Information

In the wake of his botched attempt to cover for a serial domestic abuser, John Kelly is fighting to keep his job and reimpose discipline on the West Wing.

There may be a tension  between those two goals.

Earlier this month, the world learned that the White House chief of staff had allowed staff secretary Rob Porter to retain his position — and his access to highly classified information — even after Porter had failed to pass an FBI background check, ostensibly due to his (alleged) history of domestic violence.

In the ensuing weeks, reporters revealed that scores of White House officials were operating without permanent security clearances, with some using “interim” clearances indefinitely, as an apparent means of accessing information that the FBI had determined they couldn’t be trusted with.
