A White House official says Jared Kushner will play a part in talks with Netanyahu today, despite his tenuous clearance status. Kushner has already paid a call to Blair House, where Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is staying, to check in with him before formal talks begin today.
Officials are downplaying the effect Kushner’s downgraded security clearance will have on the talks today, though acknowledge this will be the first high-profile engagement for Kushner since he lost his “top secret” access.
