jared kushner's reported complicity in the Russian meeting between a lawyer linked with the Kremlin and Donald Trump, Jr. is spawning new calls for his resignation. President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser is already being scrutinized in the special counsel's investigation over possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. His business negotiations are of particular interest, but Kushner's presence in the meeting between Don, Jr. and Russian attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, isn't doing much to help him.

Democrats want Kushner to resign or be fired

On Tuesday, Don, Jr. released a chain of emails that were evidence of the controversial meeting intended to get damaging information on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

It was noticed in the emails from Trump Jr. that Jared Kushner was sent a copy of the correspondence. Democrats responded by demanding that his security clearance be revoked and he resign.

Dan Pfieffer, ex-senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, tweeted that it's "now obvious Kushner knowingly lied on his security clearance form." He continued that hiding that information is a "serious crime," but Jared still has security clearance.

Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-N.H.) demands that Jared Kushner "resign or be fired." Many more voiced their opposition to Kushner holding clearance -- and his job amid the breaking news about Don, Jr.'s exchanges with Veselnitskaya. In May, up to 50 House Democrats called for a revocation of Kushner's security clearance and resignation.

Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) released a statement declaring that the president's senior adviser should be "held to the highest ethical standard." He expressed that had his conduct been carried out by a federal employee, that person would've been terminated.

Security form revised

Jared Kushner originally concealed information connecting him to the Russian meeting on his security application form. His revised form disclosed his involvement after the meeting was publicized. The other individual present at the Russian meeting with Don, Jr. and Veselnitskaya was former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

Will there be any consequence for the president's son-in-law regarding his connection to the Russians? As previously reported, he allegedly tried arranging a back-channel communication between Russian officials and the Trump campaign last December.
