Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Slams Trump Admin Over Security Clearance For Jared Kushner

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York slammed the Trump administration for approving 25 security clearances that were originally denied, including Jared Kushner.

While speaking at a House Oversight Committee hearing, Ocasio-Cortez brought up reports of Kushner using WhatsApp to communicate directly with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman:

Reports are suggesting that we are conducting foreign relations by people with security clearances via WhatsApp! Every day that we go on without getting to the bottom of this matter is a day that we are putting hundreds if not potentially thousands of Americans at risk. I mean, really, what is next, putting nuclear codes in Instagram DMs? This is ridiculous.
