The report said Kushner is concerned that Kelly, the chief of staff, had targeted him specifically with a recent directive to overhaul the White House clearance system.
Almost a year into the Trump administration, some senior-level staffers - including daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Kushner - remained on interim clearances even as other senior advisers were granted full security access, according to information obtained by CNN from a United States government official.
Following the firing of Rob Porter and revelations that he was able to use an interim security clearance despite allegations of domestic abuse, Kelly has set out to reform the security clearance process in the White House. Kelly added that Kushner would still have access to information with the new security clearance process in place.
As a result, Kushner is reportedly not pleased that Kelly is planning to restrict his access to highly classified information as well as to President Trump himself.
Special counsel Robert Mueller's office is investigating efforts by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner to raise foreign financing for his family's company's real-estate project during the presidential transition, CNN reported Monday. "There is no truth to any suggestion otherwise", Kelly's statement said.
Kushner will still be able to access less sensitive material.
Kelly also coached White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on how to answer when asked about Kushner's clearance issues.
"Mr. Kushner's work that he has done will not be impacted and he's going to continue to do the work that he's done over the a year ago", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters during the daily briefing. "He continues, and will continue, to be a valued member of the team", Sanders said at the briefing Tuesday. Much, but not all, of Kushner's work on the two issues singled out by Kelly are handled at those lower levels, an official said. "And he'll continue to do the important work that he's been focused on with the past year".
Kushner has revised his security clearance questionnaire multiple times, to include meetings with foreign officials. Kelly had known about the broad allegations against Porter for months, and initially moved to defend him.
Kushner has taken an active role in foreign policy in the Trump administration, and has requested access to more classified information than most other top White House aides, according to a person familiar with the matter. The official said many staffers holding interim top secret or SCI clearances would lose them - but most don't need them for their day-to-day jobs. Porter was given stop-gap clearance even though it later emerged the Federal Bureau of Investigation had informed the White House about the accusations against him.
