Kushner Close to Obtaining Clearance for Other Government Facility

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Just days after losing his top security clearance at the White House, Jared Kushner could soon be eligible to enter another high-security government facility, legal experts believe.

According to Davis Logsdon, a law professor at the University of Minnesota, Kushner could be on the verge of obtaining "long-term clearance" at this separate facility, which, like the White House, is owned and operated by the federal government.

Logsdon said that, although such a facility lacks some of the prestige of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Kushner would have access to government benefits there that far exceed what he has received as an unpaid adviser at the White House.

"All of his meals and housing would be fully paid for by the taxpayer," Logsdon said. "And, if things play out the way some believe they will, Jared Kushner could be receiving these benefits for decades to come."

While gaining entry to another government facility so soon after losing security clearance at the White House would represent an extraordinary comeback for Kushner, it would not come without a price, the law professor warned.

"Jared Kushner might have to put his plans to bring peace to the Middle East on hold," he said.

Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
