Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) told Trump son in law Jared Kushner that he better hire a lawyer because he committed a crime when he lied about having contacts with foreign governments on his security clearance form.
Rep. Lieu tweeted:
Dear Jared Kushner: Lying on the SF-86 security clearance form is a crime. Michael Flynn hired a lawyer. You may also want to hire a lawyer.

The reason why the stakes are so high for the White House in 2018 goes beyond getting their agenda through a Republican-controlled Congress. If Democrats win back all or part of Congress, they are going to conduct a full investigation into the Trump White House, which will include the Russia scandal, Trump’s conflicts of interest, his family conflicts of interest (Hi, Ivanka), and any crimes committed by his aides and son in law Jared Kushner.
Kushner committed a felony by not disclosing two meetings with high profile Russians during his security clearance hearings.
During a recent appearance on MSNBC’s AM Joy, Lieu called for Kushner’s security clearance to be suspended:

Rep. Lieu’s move beyond suspension to telling Kushner to lawyer up is a sign that the Russia scandal has gone from bad to worse for the Trump family.
