Donald Trump has taken the unprecedented step of requesting his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, receive top-secret clearance to join him for his Presidential Daily Briefings, which began Tuesday.
Multiple sources tell NBC News Trump received his first briefing on Tuesday and designated both Kushner and Ret. Gen. Michael Flynn as his staff-level companions for the briefings going forward.
While Flynn has the necessary security clearance, Kushner does not, and it could take weeks or even longer for him to receive it.

How much do you want to bet they act like jerks and deny it or delay it until January 21?
Somebody better tell him about it ASAP!
I wonder why the President Elect wants to have family given security clearance.
This is a bad idea of his all around. The anti-nepotism laws aside, there is no reason his family members should know everything that is going on.
Yep. Very bad idea.
Trump is a master delegater. And he values the advice from certain key people on this planet. It’s been obvious, for some time now, that some of those people are related to him.
But who wants advice from a trusted individual who doesn’t have all the facts???
So of course he’s asking for clearance. Nothing more to this story.
I’m beginning to think that Trump has dreams of a dynasty. No family member should have clearance mainly since it would create a situation where there would be more people that the Secret Service would have to protect and frankly I do not believe that anyone unelected or not part of the official staff should have access. If Jared runs around NY with classified papers, it would be a spy’s dream come true. Or worse, Jared gets kidnapped and ends up tortured into revealing everything.
It shouldn’t be relatives.
Bull. It should be whoever he is comfortable with and can pass the background checks.
Otherwise, he can take care of it after Jan. 20.
I’m’ certain it’ll happen one way or another.
But who wants advice from a trusted individual who doesnt have all the facts???
So of course hes asking for clearance. Nothing more to this story.
And frankly, I don't give a damn what Trump imagines that Jared knows that can "help" him; he's damned dead wrong about that!
What the ####?!?!?!
WHO is this guy and is he even conservative??!?!?!
There’s much more to the story and his s-i-l simply can NOT “help” him in any!
It’s a wrong and stupid move.
What is his expertise in regarding the national briefings?
Is he conservative?
Does he have vast experience in foreign and domestic affairs that he could offer so much to Trump?
Bad bad bad.
Jared has been especially helpful during the process. I’m not surprised Trump wants to keep him on the team. A clearance would be the prudent thing to do.
Somebody had better slap The Donald upside his head and quickly! He's already cosying up to some people he absolutely should not!
I’ll bet Hillary had clearance when Bubba was pres
