President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is reported to have omitted dozens of contacts with foreign officials and leaders in recent months on his top-secret security-clearance application form. In order to get clearance, Kushner, according to The New York Times, was required to note all such encounters with foreign governments over the past seven years, but left out key liaisons, including meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak and another—that Kislyak set up—with the head of a controversial Russian state-owned bank. Kushner’s lawyer said the omissions were simply a mistake, but it raises questions as the FBI and two congressional bodies investigate the connections between Trump’s associates and Russian officials. The Senate Intelligence Committee weeks ago notified the White House that it plans to question Kushner about his meetings with Kislyak, among others, as part of its investigation.
