Here is how the White House Press Secretary answered the question today about Jay Z’s track (that he had White House clearance):
“It’s a song,” Carney said. “The president’s not communicating with Jay-Z over this trip.”
“over this trip.” What does that mean? I have no idea…may mean zero but it caught my attention. I would have had a follow up question: “are they communicating about anything, and, if so, what?”
And by the way, the Treasury Dept is the agency that officially grants a clearance.
