The Kelly File 11/14/16 | Report: Trump Seeking Top Secret Security Clearances for His Children
President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly seeking top secret security clearances for his adult children, Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric.
On “The Kelly File” tonight, Megyn Kelly asked Trump surrogate Newt Gingrich if this poses a conflict of interest.
Megyn pointed out that the president-elect said repeatedly during his campaign that his children would oversee his business affairs, if he was elected.
“When you look at how Hillary Clinton totally abused the system, I would sure trust Ivanka or Donald or Don Jr. or Eric a heck of a lot more than Hillary Clinton,” Gingrich said.
Megyn pressed Gingrich about the potential “dilemma” that would arise if the Trump children got top secret information about countries in which they have a financial interest.
“I think this is something we ought to explore carefully,” Gingrich acknowledged. “There should clearly be rules. There might well have to a certain amount of transparency. And then, frankly, the Trump family would have to decide: Are they willing to live with that transparency?”
