Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has kept his White House job, despite scandals that should have led to his exit. Why has he outlasted so many other White House staffers? Oh yeah, he's married to Ivanka Trump. #Nepotism #NeedtoImpeach https://t.co/V6LX5c1utp pic.twitter.com/Nfx0HjfIWd

Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner remains an adviser to the President despite being hit with scandals that should disqualify him from the job.
Kushner doesn’t have access to top secret material anymore. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly lowered his security clearance of Kushner while his background is still under investigation.
Additionally, the Washington Post reported that officials in at least four countries “have privately discussed ways they can manipulate” Jared by “taking advantage of his complex business arrangements, financial difficulties and lack of foreign policy experience.”
Jared’s presence in the White House is a threat to national security. But he hasn’t resigned or been fired like other officials.
If Jared wasn’t related to Trump, would he still have his job?
Donald Trump has entrusted his son-in-law — who has no government experience, no necessary security clearance, large foreign debts, a rocky relationship with the truth, and a host of conflicts of interest — with one of the most influential jobs in the world.
