    Thanks DockAdams --We discuss so many of these issues, and after a while I forget when we discussed them. Or is some cases they get buried in other threads. It will be interesting to see how both Jared and Ivanka are able to function in their jobs without the necessary high level (top??) security clearances. Maybe it won't make any difference. It didn't matter to Trump before the issue became public, and once things quiet down (or another topic takes its place) it may be business as usual at the White House. How are we the public and media really to know. Sarah Huckabee Sanders for one will never tell.

    We remember that we wrote something, but forgot the subject or title of the thread we posted it in. I'm presently browsing the Gun Control thread and found we were discussing bump stocks back then, must have had to do with the Vegas massacre.

    I don't get how these family members obtained security clearances, back in the day when my AFSC required a clearance, members were required to undergo a serious background investigation by the FBI, the DIS and other appropriate agencies. These people were given clearances because they were family members who would be the president's inner cicle? and nothing more than that? I don't get it. I'm writing this because my security clearance DIS file was about 50 pages long, and the upper people decided whether I qualified for a clearance or not based on background information.

    I also wonder how Trump himself qualified for any type of security clearance knowing that he has allegedly abused women in the past, has done some questionable business practices (Trump University) and so forth. Evidently, the US Government has relaxed it's moral and ethical standards as it applies to security clearances and who is allowed to have one. I think Kushner might be investigated since the story is out that foreign operatives were using him as some kind of bait.

    I thought that this country had "nepotism" rules; Now you can see the "mess" if you don't follow the rules. Kussner just got some "loans" via White House "meetings" he had with "loan providers" ; one loan was for 184 million another for over 300 million. What a country; where are the "ethics" lawyers???

    I saw a report this morning that both Ivanka and hubby are both leaving the White House, and that Trump has cut them out of his will. At this point, I haven't seen verification of that, but nothing in the Trump administration would surprise me at all.

    Likely "fake news"; wishful thinking. Trump won't drop his family for sure. Probably an Russian plot. Ha ha.

    On Wednesday night, Donald Jr. appeared on Sean Hannity's show - and accused Hunter Biden of nepotism

    Seriously.

    This is a guy who became executive vice president of his father's company at the age of 23, and whose sister and brother-in-law work in the White House, whose companies are racking in cash as they help craft U.S. policy.

    Ivanka and Jared made between $82 million and $135 million in 2018 and their combined assets are worth between $181 million and $755 million. The disclosures used by the US Office of Government Ethics (OGE) list assets and obligations only in broad ranges.

    Also, it's extremely doubtful that Qatar would have bailed out Jared's failing property at 666 5th Avenue if his father-in-law had not orchestrated a Saudi embargo of Qatar. (Sounds like extortion, doesn't it?)

    Kushner is a good friend of MBS, who started the blockade. Qatar did not directly bail out the property, but got drawn in due to their participation in a Canadian lending firm called Brookfield.
