He Went to Jared!
President-elect Donald Trump is seeking a top-secret security clearance for his son-in-law Jared Kushner. When Trump received his first security briefing Tuesday, he listed Kushner and General Michael Flynn as his companions for briefings moving further. Kushner has reportedly spearheaded the move to cleanse the Trump transition team of Governor Chris Christie and his loyalists. The move comes just days after Trump disputed a report that he would seek similar clearances for his children. Trump’s unprecedented move is not without controversy, as it may violate an anti-nepotism law put into place in 1967 in response to the appointment of Robert Kennedy to Attorney General by his brother. Trump has maintained that his children will serve as informal advisers throughout his presidency.
