Trump Team Requests Security Clearance for Jared Kushner

Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has been a trusted adviser to President-elect.

Kushner, who has been married to Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka, since 2009, has been a close adviser to Trump and a mainstay at the Trump Tower while the transition teams maps out next year's administration. Like Trump, Kushner is the son of a wealthy real estate developer and has become an extremely successful businessman in his own right.

Trump denied reports that he had previously requested security clearances for his children, tweeting today that "this was a typically false news story."
