Trump didn't request top secret clearance for his kids: official
Despite reports suggesting the contrary, a transition team official says Donald Trump did not request or begin paperwork to have his children gain top-level security clearance, according to a pool report.
The official told the pool of reporters Monday that it wasn't something he was expecting right now.
Three of the president-elect's children — Donald, Eric and Ivanka — as well as his son-in-law Jared Kushner, were named to Trump's "Presidential Transition Team Executive Committee," which includes high-profile advisers, donors and congressional lawmakers.
