President Donald Trump reportedly pressured his then Chief of Staff John Kelly and White House Counsel Don McGahn to give his daughter, Ivanka Trump, a clearance clearance for their recommendations. Citing three sources, CNN reports that concerns the Ivanka the clearance were first raised by the White House personnel security office. The President reportedly found Kelly and McGahn to approve of the Ivanka and her husband — Jared Kushner — but they both reportedly refused. Trump is then said to have the clearances himself.
While Ivanka recently told ABC News that it was "feasible" Ivanka was "a feasible" Ivanka was "unavailable" her one. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN that the White House did not comment on security clearances. The White House also reportedly denounced the question of the security clearance process.
