In a video that has quickly gone viral, CBS reporter Errol Barnett attempts to ask Kushner for a comment while Kushner walks by in the aisle within the plane when a Secret Service agent appears to cover his camera.

When Barnett seeks to show his press credentials, the agent is filmed saying "I don't give a damn who you are. There's a time and a place."

In a statement to CBS News coordinating producer Arden Farhi, the Secret Service said that the "circumstances surrounding the incident are under review.”

“Pending receipt of additional facts, details and full circumstances surrounding the incident, appropriate action will be taken if necessary,” the Secret Service said.

Barnett explained on "CBS This Morning" that he was hoping to ask Kushner about his relationship with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

He also noted that Kushner does not frequently make himself available for questions, and argued that the kind of questioning he attempted is appropriate.
