I was wondering. Do presidential candidates automatically receive a security clearance? I saw that Ryan wanted to prevent Clinton from attending classified meetings. I wonder if Donald has been cleared.

So, it seems that they don't actually go through the normal security screenings. That seems kinda cavalier. Now I wonder if the same holds true for congress. Get elected, get access to everything.

my understanding is that only certain committee memberships (ie intelligence committee), and even then it's a restricted security clearance

I used to laugh because one of those people on the house permanent select committee on intelligence was Michelle Bachmann.
