‘This is why nepotism is a terrible idea’: Legal analyst puts a stake through the heart of Trump’s Kushner problem
A CNN legal analyst on Friday pinpointed why President Donald Trump’s insistence on employing his family members in the White House has caused them so many headaches.
“Why is Jared Kushner working there at all?” analyst Jeffrey Toobin implored during a panel discussion on the president’s son-in-law’s lack of security clearance. “What are his qualifications?”
“This is why nepotism is a terrible idea,” he continued. “He’s unqualified but he’s also un-fireable.”
Instead of “stumbling around trying to find a solution” to the question of whether Kushner should be removed from the White House because he’s still not been granted security clearance due to his more than 100 omitted foreign contacts on his application forms, the administration should instead “just get rid of him,” Toobin mused.
