Kushner's Security Clearance Restored After Second Meeting With Mueller

The Mueller probe has also hung over Kushner's status in the White House, in part because some of the matters under investigation relate to his role during the campaign and the transition, including contacts with Russians, as well as events that occurred in the early months of the Trump presidency, such as the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
Moreover, Lowell claimed that his client has cooperated fully with Robert Mueller's investigators, having been interviewed twice for several hours by his team.
Kushner's attorney would not rule out that Mueller might ask Kushner for a third interview, though Lowell said it was unlikely.
Gaining a permanent security clearance potentially relieves tremendous weight on Kushner, whose contacts with foreign officials during Trump's transition to the White House were subject to major scrutiny and damning media reports.
Speaking with CNN'sWolf Blitzer on Wednesday, Lowell refused to repeat the exact questions Kushner was asked by the special counsel, but he did share the topics they discussed.
But Kushner's permanent clearance was granted after career officials completed the Federal Bureau of Investigation background check process, according to the person familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. But now it appears that the investigators haven't found anything which would have deemed Kushner a security threat. That first session was reportedly limited to questions about former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, who later was charged with lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
But now with the granting of his permanent security clearance, Jared Kushner has once again gained access to some of the nation's biggest secrets, which includes the presidential daily brief - a cumulative summary of all the intelligence updates the president receives from the intelligence community every day.

Initially, Kushner did not list his foreign contacts on the form, though he submitted an addendum indicating he was willing to detail them. Then, in June, Kushner filed a third addendum acknowledging a meeting he had in June 2016 at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer offering damaging information on Hillary Clinton. "Throughout the process, Mr. Kushner has continued to work on a number of foreign policy and domestic issues with no interruption".
