Appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, authoritarian expert Sarah Kendzior expressed frustration that she was having to once again address the fact that Jared Kushner was given a top security clearance despite concerns by intelligence officials.
After watching host Joy Reid show clips of Ivanka Trump lying that her father, President Donald Trump, had nothing to do with getting his son-in-law the right to state secrets, Kendzior had a few things to say.
“This is like the 12th time I’ve been on your show talking about Jared Kushner and the fact that he lied on his clearance forms, that he’s done illicit dealings and giving away state secrets and he’s a massive national security risk and so is Ivanka Trump,” Kendzior began with her voice rising.
“The only way that we would be able to finally stop having this conversation on national TV is if he is indicted — that is is what needs to be done.” she continued. “This problem is enormous and it’s going to persevere.”
“Even if he is gone, he’s carrying around this information, other people are carrying around classified information,” she elaborated. “They do not have loyalty to this country, they have debt, they have financial interests, they have personal interests and this problem needs to be handled now.”
“It is ridiculous that I appear on here as do others to have the same conversation again” she concluded. “Just indict Jared Kushner and indict Ivanka Trump and get this crime family out of the White House.”

George Conway declares ‘Trump is a racist president’ in brutal Washington Post column
Prominent Republican attorney George Conway blasted President Donald Trump in an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Monday evening.
Conway explained how he avoided thinking of Trump as a racist, despite the president's actions.
"No, I thought, President Trump was boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive. He’s a pathetic bully but an equal-opportunity bully — in his uniquely crass and crude manner, he’ll attack anyone he thinks is critical of him. No matter how much I found him ultimately unfit, I gave still him the benefit of the doubt about being a racist. No matter how much I came to dislike him, I didn’t want to think that the president of the United States is a racial bigot," he explained.
Professor reminds Trump of his two immigrant wives: ‘Four of his five children are children of immigrants’
As President Donald Trump complains about immigrants, he should remember his own family, Fordham Professor Christina Greer explained on MSNBC on Monday.
"Mind you, he's a child of immigrants and twice married to two immigrants, right? Four of his five children are children of immigrants, but he has to use this rhetoric to make sure that he can frame all of his failures in a way that it’s never him and it’s always someone else who is taking away from the good, 'white Americans' who deserve to be here," Greer explained.
In 1977, Trump became the second husband of Ivana Zelní?ková -- who was born in Czechoslovakia. She is the mother of Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.
Racism drives Trump ‘like rocket fuel’ — but even for him, this is ‘shocking and disgraceful’: WaPo journalist
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," Washington Post reporter David Swerdlick told anchor Wolf Blitzer that there's nothing truly new about President Donald Trump's racist social media assaults on Democratic congresswomen of color — but that there is something uniquely horrible about the latest episode.
"People are suggesting what the president has said in the past day or two represents a new low," said Blitzer. "But when you look at the president's history ... the president claiming Barack Obama wasn't born here in the United States, his comments about Charlottesville. This clearly isn't a one-off."
