Jared Kushner omits some foreign contacts on security form

09 April 2017, 02:52 | Sue Hudson

After an election in which he was President Donald Trump's "brain", White House chief strategist Steve Bannon seems to be losing out in an administration riven with infighting, according to Politico.

The New York Times reports that when applying for this security clearance, Kushner was required to disclose any and all contacts with foreign governments-the omission of which his lawyer is referring to as a "mistake".

"We are not making any staff changes and our team is focused on the President's agenda, not false palace intrigue stories", a White House official told The Hill.

Bloomberg first reported the news, which was part of a larger NSC shake-up revealed in a White House regulatory filing released Wednesday. The Trump White House has pushed back against any stories regarding the unrest between the two top aides, calling them distractions.

Bannon retains the highest national security clearance possible, aides to President Donald Trump told Bloomberg's Jennifer Jacobs, and he remains a top adviser with strong views.

Last night's strikes in Syria are another win for Kushner and a loss for Bannon to accompany his removal from the National Security Council's Principals Committee.

Does YouTube TV have commercials?
All early indications are that YouTube TV is just another great option for people who are exhausted of paying for cable. If you're living in one of the cities mentioned, you can subscribe to YouTube TV if you think it suits your needs.

Bannon and Priebus both find themselves in the unenviable position of clashing with a member of the Trump family.

On March 31st TRUNEWS reported that Preibus' deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh was leaving her White House position to play a role in at the Pro-Trump Super-PAC America First Policies, where former Trump campaign national spokeswomen Katrina Pierson now serves. With Flynn out of the White House, they said, Bannon's role on the NSC was largely obsolete, though he was allowed to keep his security clearance. And it was just as shocking to learn this week that Bannon had been removed from said council.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is reportedly in the running.

Mr. Bannon's closest ally is Stephen Miller, the president's senior adviser for policy and the author of orders to temporarily ban visitors from certain predominantly Muslim countries.

The sources said Bannon and Kushner have been engaged in a consistent battle in which they get into "face to face" confrontations, the Daily Beast reported. He'll never be viewed the same way again in liberal NY society after having taken such a prominent role in "the enemy's" administration.
