Dem: Kushner may have committed indictable offense-wants his Security Clearance revoked


Flynn lied about and omitted his connections to Russia-he finally got fired by Trump.
Sessions lied about and he had recuse himself from involvement in Russia probes.
Kushner is still running around the WH and the world--no repercussions for his omitting his connections with Russia!!!



Dem: Kushner may have committed ‘indictable’ offense

By The Hill Staff - 04/19/17 03:30 PM EDT




A House Democrat says Jared Kushner may have committed an "indictable" offense and should have his security clearance revoked.

Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has said leaving meetings with foreign officials off of his security clearance form was an accident.

But Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and other Democrats aren’t willing to let him off the hook.

“Having omitted really significant pieces of information, which I'm not a prosecutor but, a quick reading of the law suggests that … a security clearance could be denied just on this alone and might even be [an] indictable offense," Beyer told The Hill..................................

2. Normally if you omit information from a security clearance form the agency will revoke your security

clearance. By not being clear in your answers on a security clearance form, hints that you as an applicant, are inclined toward the behavior of deception. If you cannot be trusted to be honest you cannot work in a highly secure government position. Normally.

There are spies within the Trump administration working on behalf of the Russian intelligence services. In my opinion.

But it's still a fight worth picking. Doing and saying nothing would make sure nothing comes of Kushner's perjuring himself.

being fired. 'Cause that's more important than a coup that has been perpetrated. Treason, not so much.

8. It's a sworn statement.

Like a deposition, he should know what those are, it's not a mistake. It is perjury, it is lying under the oath, it a felony. This guy shouldn't just lose his clearance but needs to be kicked out of the WH. Along with his wife and his father in law.

12. Unfortunately we have a problem of a corrupt and immoral party in control of both the

House and Senate as well as the Presidency and the FBI won't be of any use either since Comey exposed where his true loyalties are when he rode off to help Trump during the election with that fake Hillary email bullshit.
Now there is one potential avenue that the Democrats can try and that's going after the Repugnants at the state level for any crimes they might commit in states where they don't control the judiciary and I don't mean harassing them I simply mean investigating them if a crime was committed and holding them fully accountaable.
If the Democrats do that I bet we might see a number of Repugnants ending up in prison.

exactly like what the Repugnants did to the Clinton's and to Obama.

If the Rs won't step up and do their Constitutional duty, we need hearings by the Dems.

basement offices -on Universal health care. Long time ago. Don't recall anything else.

Half of DU changed their avatars in support of John Conyers and he actually posted on DU!

Time for public hearings to reveal what the Intel Community and FBI know.

If Tom Price and Jeff Sessions can lie their asses off to congress an uber wealthy person has nothing to worry about. You must be thinking of some other country where laws and rules apply to everyone not just the proles.

our constitutional democratic republic I hope it leads immediately to several constitutional amendments. At a minimum.

23. I'm not sure this DOJ is functional enough to step up to indict anyone -- a circumstance by design.

There's no town as full of lawyers as DC, but there's no inertia like DC's, either.

While we wait, the momentum of these criminalities dies, public attention wanes, people forget what is so bad about these crimes they hardly remember, and new comedies, distractions and disasters drive media attention.

Timeliness in enforcing the law -- and the historical lessons that reinforce civic values -- is lost in just this way.
