But Kushner's troubles were compounded at least in part because his initial security clearance application didn't list dozens of foreign contacts that he later included in updated submissions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigators on Wednesday questioned White House senior adviser Jared Kushner about a potential collusion with Russian Federation, his contacts with foreign nationals and potential obstruction issues, which also include the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey.

As a sign of Kushner's newfound confidence in his position, his attorney Abbe Lowell appeared on CNN and disclosed that Kushner had been questioned by Mueller's investigative team for a second time last month.
Kushner, who maintains a wide-ranging White House portfolio that includes leading the administration's Middle East policy, lost his clearance under a new set of White House procedures implemented after a top White House aide, Rob Porter, was permitted to remain in his position for months after the Federal Bureau of Investigation uncovered allegations of spousal abuse against him.

As the application process was pending, Kushner's "top secret/sensitive compartmented information" access was downgraded in February when White House Chief of Staff John Kelly ordered that officials with interim clearances be cut off if they hadn't received permanent clearances.
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. The first interview, which happened in late 2017, largely dealt with Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn., according to the source. Kushner previously sat for an interview last November, which was largely focused on former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who soon after pleaded guilty to charges of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
