There are three main levels of security clearance for White House staff: “confidential,” “secret,” and “top secret.”

  • Secret: “provides access to information that may cause serious damage to national security if disclosed without authorization.”
  • Top secret: “provides access to information that may cause exceptionally grave damage to national security.”

People with only “secret clearance” are “regarded much the same as someone without a clearance at all,” according to Retired Army Lt. Col. Jason Amerine.

With an interim top security clearance, Jared Kushner was tasked with producing peace in the Middle East. But he lost that interim security clearance 2 weeks ago. Without access to top secret intelligence, how will he come up with a Middle East peace plan? Or accomplish any of his many tasks?

It’s time for him to lose his White House job too.
