During an appearance on “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday Senator Al Franken (D-Minn) joined the chorus of other Democrats to take Jared Kushner’s security clearance away. Senator Franken said:
“I think we should look at that, this is a pretty bad breach. Look, they — these guys, the administration, they’re not acting like people who have nothing to hide.”

The comments from Franken come as other Democrats including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) have called for a review of Kushner’s security clearance.
These statements have come as a result of the Washington Post story claiming Kushner set up a back channel with Russia. The Hill also reported:
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday that there should be a review of Kushner’s security clearance, but stopped short of agreeing with critics who say Kushner’s security clearance should be revoked.
Trump said Monday that he has “total confidence” in Kushner.
