Lieu said Kushner declined to answer. "In terms of specifics on security clearance, I can't get into that".

For the last 13 months the husband of Trump's eldest daughter Ivanka has been operating with a temporary security status because of issues raised by the Federal Bureau of Investigation during background checks. "And he'll continue to do the important work that he's been focused on with the previous year".

President Trump's son-in-law could find himself without access to classified White House info.

After questions were raised whether the new clearance policy would affect Kushner, Kelly issued a statement saying he had "full confidence in (Kushner's) ability to continue performing his duties in his foreign policy portfolio including overseeing our Israeli-Palestinian peace effort and serving as an integral part of our relationship with Mexico".

(L-R) Jared Kushner, White House Senior Adviser and son-in-law of U.S. President Donald Trump, listens during a meeting between President Donald Trump and congressional members in the Cabinet Room of the White House February 13, 2018 in Washington, DC.

"First of all, I'm not aware of any red flags, and I think it's irresponsible to suggest that without having seen any individual's file", she said.

Sanders said Tuesday that doesn't mean that there are necessarily any problems with his Federal Bureau of Investigation background check.

Kushner has held an interim security clearance for more than a year, his attorney, Abbe Lowell, told The Associated Press last week. Gorkov has said he met with Kushner because of his position as the head of Kushner Companies - contradicting Kushner's testimony that the meeting was for US government purposes. Kelly added that Kushner would still have access to information with the new security clearance process in place. Kelly has been the subject of criticism in that time over revelations that Porter remained on staff for months in spite of the Federal Bureau of Investigation flagging the allegations of domestic abuse to the White House.

In particular, Mueller is investigating Kushner's interactions with a Chinese government-linked company that was close to investing in the Kushner family's real-estate property at 666 Fifth Avenue.
