Kushner Accused of 'Going Rogue' After Barring Officials From Meeting With MBS

Earlier, US House Democrats asked Attorney General William Barr to open a criminal case against Trump's son-in-law amid media reports that the president had ordered White House officials to give him top secret security clearance despite his unreported contacts with over 100 foreign individuals.

Senior White House advisor Jared Kushner is facing heat from officials in Congress and staff from the US Embassy in Saudi Arabia amid reports that he'd held secret, closed door conversations with Saudi officials including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman late last month.

Embassy staffers were not briefed on or given details about Kushner's February trip, nor the meetings he'd held with members of the Saudi Royal Family, with only one senior State Department official, whose portfolio is focused on Iran, in attendance during the meetings, sources with knowledge of the trip told The Daily Beast.

"The Royal Court was handling the entire schedule," one congressional source complained, with others frustrated about the lack of information about the content of the conversations between senior Trump officials and their Saudi counterparts.
