Suspend Jared Kushner's interim top-secret security clearance immediately!

Why is this important?

**UPDATE: A lot of news has broken since I launched this petition to suspend Jared Kushner's interim security clearance many months ago. But the biggest news on Kushner broke just recently, when a memo was reportedly sent downgrading the presidential son-in-law and adviser and other White House aides who had been working on interim clearances.**

Former House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz confirmed that Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, may have committed a felony by not properly disclosing payments from Russia when applying for his security clearance.

And Flynn's not the only member of Trump's inner circle who has been dishonest about his dealings with Russia. Earlier this month, Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House senior adviser, Jared Kushner, failed to report dozens of meetings with foreign agents, including meetings with Russian government agents as recently as December 2016, while completing a similar questionnaire as Flynn that is required for top-secret security clearance.

This appears to be another attempt to conceal the meetings the Trump transition team had with Russian foreign agents. The American people need to make it clear to this administration that we will continue to compel them to be honest and transparent about their ties to Russia.

Until such time as Jared Kushner fully discloses all relevant meetings he had with foreign agents, his interim top-secret security clearance needs to be suspended.
