Trump and Clinton receive security briefings

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will begin receiving classified intelligence briefings after the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, when both candidates have become their respective parties’ presidential nominees, senior intelligence officials tells ABC News. “The briefings are traditionally given after nominating conventions have identified all the candidates,” the official said. Republican and Democratic presidential and vice presidential nominees have been offered introductory intelligence briefings on national security since 1952, after their parties’ national conventions. So Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Clinton’s running mate will receive them as well.
