President-elect Donald Trump is exploring how he can obtain security clearance for his adult children, according to a CBS News report.

While most of Trump's children are heading up his transition team, currently only government officials and contractors are granted security clearances. None of Trump's children have held any public office or have any government experience, but could act as unpaid security advisers to receive top secret security clearance.

In fact, Trump's children suggested in a 60 Minutes interview that they would manage his many business ventures while he is president, which could bring up numerous conflicts of interest.

Eric Trump told 60 Minutes,“So we’ll—we’ll—we’ll be in New York and we’ll take care of the business. I think we’re going to have a lot of fun doing it. And we’re going to make him very proud.”

When asked about joining the Trump administration, Ivanka Trump answered, "“No. I’m going to be a daughter. But I’ve-- I’ve said throughout the campaign that I am very passionate about certain issues. And that I want to fight for them.”

Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka would need to fill out the security questionnaire (SF-86) and go through the requisite background checks to receive security clearance.
