How much do you want to bet they act like jerks and deny it or delay it until January 21?
Yep. Very bad idea.
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.
Just because Trump's family members have clearances doesn't mean that suddenly they're going to be privy to every bit of secret information out there. It's still a "need to know" basis. I'm sure the close family members of past presidents were often investigated for clearances. It's only newsworthy now because it's Trump.
Is this the pertinent law?
5 U.S. Code § 3110 - Employment of relatives; restrictions
In which case Jared could be appointed to a cabinet position (if that was the plan). He just couldn’t be paid.
And as Donald himself is going to be on $1 a year, payment is probably not going to be an issue.
if iranian valjar and hillary and huma and hussain could get clearance they should just stop classifying things.
He’s only asking now because he’s not President yet. As President, he can grant clearances himself. He’s obviously trying to get the transition team moving as quickly as possible.
Why is this news? It most certainly is NOT unprecedented.
If Hillary had gotten clearance for Chels, she would have committed at least a few less felonies while Secretary of State.
Wondering. ...Does Valerie Jarett have clearance?
Jumpin’ jehosophat, people. The source for thus was NBC. I see it’s now been debunked, but why the heck did anyone treat it as gospel in the first place? Trust but verify, folks.
I am not trying to get "top level security clearance" for my children. This was a typically false news story.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 16, 2016
Moving on to a real thread.
Trump would have to designate him a national security advisor.
Trump’s FAMILY has been identifying RINOs left and right, with the latest being Christie’s attempted coup. They are a TREMENDOUS ASSET.
NBC is the source of this story? Please. I don’t believe anything they report. I encourage my FRiends here to do the same.
Already debunked, Concern Trolls.
THE CRAZY LEFTIST MEDIA conspiracy is starting already. It is going to be 24/7 for the next 4 years.
If you snowflakes start believing the NAZI BROADCAST CORPORATION before Trump is even in office, the cause is lost.
STOP IT! Consider everything from media propaganda.
Accept information only if you hear it from Trump or his team directly.
