Every single person who gets a security clearance must undergo many checks, including looking into finances (bank accounts, tax documents, etc.) This is to ensure that the person receiving the clearance is not susceptible to giving away our national secrets for money, nor making deals for personal gain. When tRump's son-in-law and own daughter got their clearances handed to them, red flags went up all around...yet, the president can gift these. The president automatically gets the highest security clearance, just by being elected. Because we are the electorate, we must ensure that the person we are putting into the highest office, can clear the highest security level!!!!
