As kushner casts a shadow over the secretary of state, questions still surround his meetings with russia.
"Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was hired to be America’s top diplomat, but less than three months on the job has proven he is definitely not. As president of Exxon Mobil, Tillerson, 65, was one of the most powerful people in the world, enjoying lucrative work away from the spotlight. A few months later, the secretary of state has found himself in a job-share with a 36-year-old foreign policy neophyte married to the president’s daughter."
"Tillerson had vast experience with the Chinese at Exxon Mobil, yet the summit at Mar-a-Lago in Florida this week with Chinese President Xi Jinping was Jared’s project. Indeed, he raced back from a surprise trip to Iraq -- beating Tillerson to the critical hot spot -- to oversee it." (RealClear Politics).
"When Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, sought the top-secret security clearance that would give him access to some of the nation’s most closely guarded secrets, he was required to disclose all encounters with foreign government officials over the last seven years." (NY Times). He failed to do so.

Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling today because I believe Congress is not doing enough to get to the bottom of the Trump Administration's potential Russian ties.
While Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was hired to be America's top diplomat, it couldn't be more obvious that he shares his role with Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law. While Tillerson had vast experience with China as the CEO of Exxon Mobil, Kushner led the project. He was also first to visit Iraq, beating Tillerson to oversee it. While the president can choose his aids, recent questions about information omitted by Kushner on his clearance questionnaire makes his shadow post a cause for concern.
Kushner did not mention dozens of contacts with foreign leaders or officials in recent months, and crucially, that includes a December meeting with Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak (SIR-GAY KISS-LIE-AK) , and the head of a Russia state-owned bank, arranged by Kislyak (KISS-LIE-AK). These questions must be answered swiftly if Kushner is to have such an important role in our foreign policy.
