The Obama administration appears to be going back on their word to make the transition of power to Donald Trump's administration as smooth as possible.
The Obama administration is busy leaking insider information about Trump to their media friends at CNN, ABC News, and the Washington Post.
CNN's Wolf Blitzer, who enjoys a close personal relationship with the Obama administration, reported Monday that President-elect Trump requested top secret security clearance for his 3 oldest children, Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr.
Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, Ivanka's husband, will also need top secret clearance.
The unusual requests raised eyebrows in Washington, D.C. Many wondered aloud why the Trump children need to see top secret classified documents.
By law, President-elect Trump is prohibited from hiring his kids for positions within his administration. Hiring his children would be nepotism, which violates ethics laws.
But, according to the Washington Post, Trump can hire his children to staff his transition team to prepare him to take office in January.
"This is legal because transition teams are not federal agencies," the Post reports.
In a grandstanding press conference on Monday, President Obama implied that Mr. Trump didn't understand the enormity of the task he was undertaking.
For instance, Obama said President-elect Trump didn't know he is responsible for staffing the White House's 4,000 positions for his incoming administration.
Obama seemed to forget that -- with over 500 companies and properties around the world -- Trump knows a thing or 2 about staffing.
On Friday, the Trump camp hastily created a website to accept applications for the approximately 4,000 White House positions.
