Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, has been stripped of his access to the nation's top secrets, officials said Tuesday after his security clearance was downgraded, the CNN reported.

The move that will prevent him from viewing many of the sensitive documents to which he once had unfettered access. 

Together with Kushner, all White House aides working on the highest-level interim clearances were informed in a memo sent Friday that their clearances would be downgraded to the Secret level, according to three people with knowledge of the situation.

The memo was not signed by chief of staff John Kelly, but it comes as the retired Marine general and other top White House aides are grappling with the fallout of a scandal involving former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, which revealed that dozens of White House aides had yet to receive permanent clearances but nonetheless had access to some of the country’s deepest secrets (SCI, sensitive compartmented information - a category of information that comes from sensitive intelligence sources and must be walled off).
