That means Trump may not be able to bank on high perso

  nal popularity during the most dangerous political moments of his presidency.

  His scattershot approach to the office suggests he lacks the discipline that sustained Clint

on. And Trump’s incessant claims that he is the victim of “hoax” investigations and attempts to tear d

own the guardrails surrounding his office often give the impression that he has something to hide.

  And for all the years of controversies and scandals that plagued Clinton, the 42nd President was never the focus of so many c

redible civil and criminal investigations as are bearing down on Trump.pressured his then-chief of staff John

Kelly and White House counsel Don McGahn to grant his daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump a security clear

ance against their recommendations, three people familiar with the matter told CNN.

  The President’s crusade to grant clearances to his daughter and her husband, Jared Kushner, rankled West Wing officials.

  While Trump has the legal authority to grant clearances, most instances are left up to the White House personnel securi

ty office, which determines whether a staffer should be granted one after the FBI has conducted a ba

ckground check. But after concerns were raised by the personnel office, Trump pushed Kelly and McGahn to mak

e the decision on his daughter and son-in-law’s clearances so it did not appear as if he was tainting the process to fa

vor his family, sources told CNN. After both refused, Trump granted them their security clearances.
