Meanwhile, CNN is reporting Trump pressured then-Chief of Staff John Kelly and White House counsel Don McGahn to grant security clearance for his daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump. When they both refused, Trump reportedly granted her the clearance directly. The news comes a week after The New York Times reported President Trump ordered John Kelly to grant his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner a top-secret security clearance last year—despite the objections of intelligence officials.
