Jared Kushner's security clearance hits new snagAlthough White House chief of staff John Kelly will make the final call on a security clearance for senior adviser Jared Kushner, a top Justice Department official reportedly alerted the  Trump administration about significant information on the president's son-in-law requiring additional investigation that would further delay the process.

The Washington Post, quoting three unidentified sources, reported Saturday that Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein informed White House counsel Donald McGahn on Feb. 9 about the new developments in the case.

In its latest report, the Post said Rosenstein, in his phone conversation with McGahn, intended to give an update on the status of Kushner’s background investigation. He did not specify the source of the information that officials were examining, the three sources told the newspaper.
