Trump wants his three of his kids to be national security advisers with the highest clearance level - what a joke.

We should just make a thread called "Who Got Conned???" and save ourselves a lot of trouble in this one.

Yes, they can have full security briefings while remaining in the private sector and making off like bandits knowing what they know on a security clearance basis. You really couldn't make this up if you tried.

Huma doesn't have any history indicating she's done anything wrong.

You literally just implied that zero qualifications are better than someone with qualifications.

Excuse me, but when was Huma receiving briefings based on top secret security clearance WHILE running a multinational business empire which does business all over the place internationally?

Hello?

And everyone drop it with the personal attacks. Ignore people if you can't help with personal jabs and insults.

Having a clearance is one thing - advising the President on national security matters is another. Their prior advisory experience includes whether or not to fire Dennis Rodman.

Who cares about their qualifications?

Does nobody see what a massive conflict of interest this would be?

Why don't we also give top secret clearance to other millionaires with business investments abroad. I mean, what could go wrong?

you can't allow one without the other. they're the exact same thing. any attempt to create a difference is either a defense of slavery or a defense of nazism. i notice in your post that you've decided to take the "slavery wasn't as bad" route. you should be ashamed of yourself.

And yet everyone was freaking out about Hillary's emails risking our national security.

I just...I cannot even with this level of hypocrisy.

I see that Trump has started his fight against corruption quickly.

http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politi...est-corruption

Quote:
Trump’s plan, by contrast, is simply to hand over management of the Trump Organization network of businesses to a council composed of his children and some other executives. He has chosen to call this council a “blind trust,” and some media outlets have unaccountably agreed to go along with it. But even in the age of Trump, words have meaning, and asking your kids to manage your affairs for you is not what a blind trust is.

i'm quite certain that acting on any of those national secrets in order to further their private businesses is illegal. it's insider trading.
