Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein warned the White House two weeks ago that "significant information requiring additional investigation" would create an additional setback in the security clearance process of senior advisor Jared Kushner, the Washington Post reports.

Why it matters: The situation surrounding former White House aide Rob Porter and his security clearance has called into question other officials who are operating on an interim clearance, Kushner among them. According to the Post, Rosenstein "did not provide any details to the White House" about the information that needs further scrutiny.

One more thing: President Trump said Friday he would let his chief of staff John Kelly call the shots regarding Kushner's clearance. Meanwhile, the Post reports that Kelly has told associates he is "uncomfortable with Kushner's uncertain security clearance status" and wouldn't mind if Kushner and Ivanka "left their positions as full-time employees."

Kushner's lawer, Abbe Lowell, did not immediately respond to Axios' request for comment.

Indoor air is the next coronavirus frontline

A growing body of research has made it clear that airborne transmission of the coronavirus is possible.

Why it matters: That fact means indoor spaces can become hot spots. Those spaces also happen to be where most business and schooling takes place, so any hope for a return to normality will require better ways of filtering indoor air.

Online learning can be frustrating for students, teachers and parents, but some methods are working.

The big picture: Just as companies are using this era of telework to try new things, some principals, teachers and education startups are treating remote learning as a period of experimentation, too.
