"He's The Most Powerful Family Member of a President Since Bobby Kennedy"
By ABC News
While President Trump is overseas, a new and exclusive interview granted by his senior adviser and son in law Jared Kushner is making political waves back at home. Axios' national political reporter Jonathan Swan sat down with Kushner, the two discussing the fallout from that 2016 Trump Tower meeting: "We're in a place now where people are playing Monday morning quarterback," questions surrounding the Kushner Companies' business dealings" "At this point I have been fully vetted," and whether or not Kushner discussed his own White House security clearance with his father in law: "I have not discussed it." When asked by "The Investigation" if Swan thinks Kushner faces any vulnerability with the president: "He's not invulnerable and there have been times…where the president has been irritated with [Kushner], mostly when...he attracts negative news coverage," said Swan, "but I mean, he’s family."
