U.S. congressional Democrats on Wednesday were surprised that the son-in-law and Advisor to the President of the United States Jared Kushner retained access to classified information, despite reports of investigations on its relationship with Russia.

«It is unclear why it maintains that access,» wrote members of the democratic faction in the house oversight Committee in the house of representatives in a letter addressed to the chief of staff of the White house of Rins of Pribas.

«In principle, when there is credible suspicion that the staff may not be able to continue to obtain secret information, their access is suspended until the investigation is completed,» — said in the letter.

The authors also insist on the «immediate suspension of access to classified information (former US presidential Advisor for national security) Michael Flynn».

Flynn had to resign after the wave of accusations of ties with Russia, particularly in the interviews with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak. Kouchner opponents trump is accused of attempting to create a special channel of communication between Washington and Moscow.

Russia has repeatedly denied the US charges in the address, press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov called them «completely unfounded». The Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking about alleged Russian intervention in elections in the United States, France and Germany, said that there are no facts confirming it, no.
