White House senior adviser Jared Kushner has lost his access to the nation's deepest secrets.Kushner's loss of his top-secret clearance could be particularly problematic in his role overseeing the Trump administration's efforts to produce Mideast peace.The White House insists that Kushner's job will be unaffected by this week's downgrade to his security clearance.Late Wednesday, the New York Times reported that two companies made loans worth more than half a billion dollars to Kushner's family real estate firm after executives met with Kushner at the White House.Former U.S. and international officials say that even if Kushner stays at the White House, his job won't be the same.Still, Kushner is losing access to the highly secret presidential daily brief, and his ability to remain in the room for some of Trump's most consequential domestic and foreign policy decisions.Lowell, Kushner's attorney, said he had not been informed of any reason for the holdup in Kushner's permanent top-secret clearance.
