"First of all, I'm not aware of any red flags, and I think it's irresponsible to suggest that without having seen any individual's file", she said.
"Everyone in the White House is grateful for these valuable contributions to furthering the president's agenda", Kelly said of Kushner.
Kelly distributed a five-page memo Friday announcing that the White House will no longer allow some employees with interim security clearances to access to top secret information if their background investigation has been pending since before last June - a category Kushner falls into.
During the presidential transition period Kushner spoke to foreign contacts from over 15 countries, according to a statement he provided to Congressional investigators. Sanders did not rule out President Donald Trump using his executive authority to grant Kushner a permanent security clearance, which would circumvent the traditional process run by the White House office of personnel security.

FBI says US man stole thumb of Chinese terracotta warrior statue
That's when the statue's thumb went missing, though the institute didn't notice the disappearance until well after the event. That's when Rohana allegedly took an agent to his bedroom and grabbed the terra-cotta thumb from a drawer in a desk.
"I can tell you that nothing that has taken place will affect the valuable work that Jared is doing".
Jared Kusnher is said to be resisting an internal push at the White House to clamp down on the flow of classified information among staffers who do not hold a full security clearance, The New York Times reported Tuesday night.
Though a source familiar with the situation said Kushner has not yet appealed to the President directly about his access to highly classified information, those close to Trump believe he would be inclined to grant his son-in-law access if asked.
That included executives of Anbang Insurance, a company that's closely tied to the Chinese government - so much so, in fact, that Anbang's attempt to purchase a hotel near a USA naval base in San Diego in 2016 was reportedly called off after United States national-security officials voiced their opposition to it. "He'll continue to do the important work that he's been focused on for the a year ago".
Kushner has been forced to repeatedly correct omissions in his "SF-86", the government-wide form used to apply for clearances, as well as his financial disclosure forms, which experts said could delay or even nix his chances of earning a clearance through the normal process. Kushner is reportedly being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but his several amendments to his background application means he is actually safe from Kelly's directive, for now.
