President Donald Trump listens during a meeting with the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani in the Oval Office of the White House Tuesday

In his statement, Mr Lowell added that Mr Trump's son-in-law had also sat for a second time with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating the USA leader's campaign links with Russian Federation over alleged election meddling.

His lawyer, who said Kushner recently sat for a second interview with Mueller's team, denied that those mistakes had anything to do with the delay. "Since then, he has continued this complete cooperation, providing a large number of documents and sitting for hours of interview with congressional committees and providing numerous documents and sitting for two interviews with the Office of Special Counsel", Lowell said in a statement.

Kushner's attorney would not rule out that Mueller might ask Kushner for a third interview, though Lowell said it was unlikely.

The shake-up was a part of a White House overhaul of security clearance procedures brought on by the controversy over Rob Porter, the former White House staff secretary who was operating on a temporary security clearance despite accusations of domestic violence.


Kushner failed to disclose those meetings on his initial applications for security clearance, raising concerns about attempts to hide them.

"In each occasion, he answered all questions asked and did whatever he could to expedite the conclusion of all the investigations". But now it appears that the investigators haven't found anything which would have deemed Kushner a security threat.

But now with the granting of his permanent security clearance, Jared Kushner has once again gained access to some of the nation's biggest secrets, which includes the presidential daily brief - a cumulative summary of all the intelligence updates the president receives from the intelligence community every day.

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner recently obtained a full security clearance, Fox News has learned, months after his interim security clearance was downgraded amid new rules issued by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.


The first interview occurred last fall and the questions were limited to former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, who subsequently pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and began cooperating with Mueller.

Initially, Kushner did not list his foreign contacts on the form, though he submitted an addendum indicating he was willing to detail them.

The White House denied that the lack of a clearance would hamper Kushner's work, even though he was the White House point man on Middle East peace talks.
