The Trump transition team is saying that a low-level staffer requested security clearances for three of Donald Trump’s children, according to a top aide.
According to the aide, the request was made “without authorization” and the staffer, who is no longer with the team, “overstepped his boundaries.”
Sources say the request was not made by the president-elect.
We speculated about this yesterday. Looks like Trump didn’t request the clearances and the request was pulled back.
