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.

Maybe you should watch fewer spy movies. Trump has a right to choose anyone he wants as advisors, which, surprise! includes people he trusts. He relies on his family for business advice, not because they’re family, but because they’re talented, and he trusts them. Because they run his business should have nothing to do with it. They just need to sign a confidentiality agreement, or whatever other agreements any other advisors sign. It’s his transition team, not Cabinet posts.
if iranian valjar and hillary and huma and hussain could get clearance they should just stop classifying things.
Ivanka’s husband - apparently he played a very key role in Trump’s campaign and had a big hand in the win.
Don’t you need clearance just to look at files on potential appointees?
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.
Jared was supposed to have pushed (along with Ryan and McConnell) for making Priebus chief of staff. Ivanka is clearly a liberal, and I think Trump does need to wean himself on his reliance on them.
It is kind of cute and sweet that he seems to have developed such a good working relationship with his kids in his family business and by all accounts Jared is a pretty shrew guy, but let’s hope this transition period is indeed a transition period.
Some lawyer on TV said the nepotism law exists but it doesn’t apply to all positions. Maybe “advisor” is one of those jobs.
Lol look at all the FReepers rushing to believe NBC. Anything they still should be considered anti- Trump propaganda.
He could just email him the stuff
Read content of that link.
It says: “Ivanka says she is DJT’s daughter”, and “they don’t hold a formal role in father’s administration”. All true & obvious so far.
“There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know.” — Donald Rumsfeld
Maybe, there are things that even the President may not know, until or unless he “needs to know”!
Valerie Jarret is not Iranian.
She was born to expat Americans in Iran... at a time when there were thousands of military and civilian US expats in Iran.
Wondering. ...Does Valerie Jarett have clearance?
