CNN is reporting that Donald Trump wants security clearances for his children and son-in-law. Unclear from the report whether this includes Barron.Sure. Why not? Only, I thought security clearances required passing a background check. Would Uday, Qusay and Imelda be able to pass, with their business and personal asssociation with shady, possibly mobbed up characters? (I am assuming that the Don, as president elect, is exempt from background checks, because he'd have many more of those problems in his file).
