Jared Kushner has updated a list of foreign contacts on the federal disclosure form needed to obtain a security clearance three times and added more than 100 names to it, according to a report.
Those applying for a security clearance are required to list contacts with foreign governments, and people close to Kushner told the New York Times he has supplemented the list of foreign contacts three times.
One such update included contact Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and a White House senior adviser, had with a Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in June 2016 after they were promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
After the New York Times published details of the meeting earlier this week, Democratic lawmakers began raising questions about Kushner's security clearance.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters Thursday his security clearance should be revoked immediately, and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., introduced two amendments to a 2018 appropriations bill Thursday that attempt to strip Kushner of his clearance.
White House deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday she wouldn't discuss Kushner's security clearance, but accused Democrats of "trying to play political games."
