As the Times reporters Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Maggie Haberman wrote, Kushner has been "frustrated about the security clearance issue" and felt like Kelly "has targeted him personally". Porter was eventually forced to resign after two of his ex-wives came forward with domestic abuse allegations.
Almost a year into the Trump administration, some senior-level staffers - including daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Kushner - remained on interim clearances even as other senior advisers were granted full security access, according to information obtained by CNN from a USA government official.
A White House official told CNN that there was also an unspoken worry among several staffers that raising concerns about Porter's interim clearance would have in turn raised concerns about Kushner's similar status and prompted questions about the various issues clouding Kushner.
Last week, left-wing watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics filed a complaint, calling on the White House to revoke Kushner's interim clearance.
Kushner told colleagues that he does not want to give up his interim clearance and insisted that he must maintain his access, according to the New York Times.

"It's not aimed at Jared, but to fix a broken system", a White House official said, acknowledging the tensions that exist between Kelly and Kushner. Jared Kushner has a temporary clearance that is about to be expired in the coming week, as issued by Chief of Staff John Kelly. "There is no truth to any suggestion otherwise".
In recent news, it has been revealed that the recent security clearance crackdown has left Jared Kushner unaffected.
"Nothing that has taken place will affect the valuable work that Jared is doing", Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said at the White House briefing on Tuesday.
During the presidential transition - when Kushner was the Trump campaign's main contact for foreign governments and said he spoke with "over fifty contacts from over 15 countries" - he also allegedly spoke with Chinese investors to shore up financial backing for the building. She further added, "He will always be a valuable member of the team".
Despite this, Kushner has enjoyed access to the same classified information President Donald Trump receives. Porter was given stop-gap clearance even though it later emerged the Federal Bureau of Investigation had informed the White House about the accusations against him. The White House made it clear that the current memo will not impact the senior adviser role of Kushner. "And he'll continue to do the important work that he's been focused on with the a year ago". The new clearance policy could limit Kushner's ability to participate in meetings or handle documents with classified information, a strategy some say is intentional on Kelly's behalf.
