Robert Mueller, who is investigating the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election, has planned to wrap the probe into whether President Donald Trump obstructed the Russia inquiry by September 1, the president's lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani had told Fox News, earlier.
Whether the restoration of Kushner's clearance is somehow related to his cooperation with Mueller is not immediately clear.
The 37-year-old aide and envoy - who is married to Ivanka Trump - lost his top-level security clearance amid a broader White House shakeup in February, restricting his access to America's most closely guarded secrets.
Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks for security clearances routinely examine an applicant's financial holdings and foreign contacts. But Kushner's troubles were compounded at least in part because his initial security clearance application didn't list dozens of foreign contacts that he later included in updated submissions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "He answered all questions asked and did whatever he could to expedite the conclusion of all the investigation".
"With respect with the news of his clearance being restored, as we stated before, his application was properly submitted, reviewed by numerous career officials and went through the normal process", Lowell said. But now it appears that the investigators haven't found anything which would have deemed Kushner a security threat.

Trump could have granted Kushner with a permanent clearance, but said he would leave all decisions on Kushner's security clearance to White House chief of staff John Kelly in February. "Having completed these processes, Mr. Kushner is looking forward to continuing the work the president has asked him to do".
The first interview occurred last fall and the questions were limited to former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, who subsequently pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and began cooperating with Mueller.
The renewed access to top-secret intelligence comes three months after Kushner's level of security clearance was downgraded from "top secret" to merely "secret". Even without a permanent clearance, the president's son-in-law had been allowed to see materials, including the President's Daily Brief, that are among the most sensitive in government.
Kushner's initial SF-86 form did not mention any foreign contacts, though he quickly supplemented it to indicate that he would provide that information.
Some experts said the evolving disclosures might have been disqualifying for another person, and it could also explain the delay in granting Kushner a clearance. Then, in June, Kushner filed a third addendum acknowledging a meeting he had in June 2016 at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer offering damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
