CBS says Secret Service blocked reporter from Kushner
New York – CBS News says a Secret Service agent blocked one of its correspondents from asking Jared Kushner a question when he was walking out of an airplane, saying there was a “time and a place” for such interactions.
A network spokeswoman said Wednesday that reporter Errol Barnett happened to be on the same Washington to New York flight as the presidential son-in-law. CBS said he showed a press credential and attempted to ask a question about Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi.
A short video posted online showed what appeared to be an agent saying, “I don’t give a damn who you are.”
The Secret Service said it was reviewing the incident and that appropriate action would be taken depending on what its investigation shows.
