Ex-White House ethics chief compares Ivanka, Kushner security clearances to college admissions...

Former White House ethics chief Walter Shaub on Thursday said there was “quite the parallel” between President Trump’s children getting high-level security clearances and the dozens of parents caught in a national college admissions cheating scandal.

Shaub said Trump’s alleged role in getting his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner security clearances was on par with the allegations that wealthy parents, as well as school coaches and administrators, engaged in a bribery scam to ensure college admissions for their children.

“Quite the parallel between members of the decadent golf set cheating to get their kids into college and a decadent golf setter cheating to get his daughter and son-in-law clearances after committing nepotism to get them civil service jobs – except for the national security risks,” Shaub tweeted.

1. I have a giant crush on Walter Shaub.

I just think he’s absolutely irresistibly adorable and plus he’s brilliant and tough as hell.
