White House senior adviser Jared Kushner does not have the highest level of security clearance, preventing him from seeing some of the government’s most sensitive information, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

Sources told The Post that Kushner was only granted a clearance with “top secret” status and has not yet been permitted to view “sensitive compartmented information,” known as SCI.

The CIA oversees who is able to view the information, which comes from U.S. intelligence sources and surveillance, the newspaper noted.

The lower status has occasionally cut Kushner off from viewing parts of the president’s Daily Brief when it includes the highly sensitive information.
