Well, it’s about time, but don’t think this came from the Trump administration. Hillary Clinton’s security clearance was revoked at her own request in August, per a letter from Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA). This comes more than a year after the Senate Judiciary Committee requested that the State Department investigate why a woman who no longer works for the people and who had an illegal email server that compromised national security still had security clearance.
August! That’s more than a year and a half after President Trump took office knowing she was “crooked” and “guilty as Hell.”
But, at least it’s done now.
The Washington Times reports that it wasn’t just Clinton losing the security clearance:
Chairman Charles E. Grassley also revealed top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and four others no longer have clearance.
Mrs. Clinton’s clearance expired at the end of August. The others lost their access privileges in September.
The state department, in a letter to Mr. Grassley, had said Mrs. Clinton and her aids retained clearance in order to conduct research after she left office.
The names of the four additional aids besides Ms. Mills were redacted from the state department letter that the committee released.
Conduct research? They don’t work for the people anymore. They are working against us!
USA Today adds:
A letter dated Sept. 21 to the leadership of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and published Friday by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, states that Clinton’s clearance was withdrawn on Aug. 30. It doesn’t explain why Clinton requested the measure, but her clearance was pulled just days after President Donald Trump revoked the clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan.
Trump also publicly threatened to revoke the clearances of other Obama-era officials, though Clinton was not on his list.
The letter also lists five Clinton aides whose security clearances were withdrawn in September. The names of the aides were redacted, except for Cheryl Mills, who served as Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department.
The State Department noted to Grassley and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the judiciary committee, that it was still examining all of the documents it received from the FBI after the bureau’s investigation was completed.
After its review is complete the State Department said it will begin investigating whether there were any “valid security incidents” and whether Clinton or her staff broke any rules.
Clinton was investigated over her use of a private email server during her run for president against Trump. She used the email for business while she was secretary and handled classified information. The FBI closed its investigation and did not charge Clinton.
Right, the FBI didn’t push for an indictment. They covered up her crimes and James Comey led the way.
President Trump did revoke former Central Intelligence Agency Director James Brennan’s security clearance in August. At that time, the administration said they were also considering the same action against looking at doing the same to James Clapper, James Comey, Susan Rice, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, and others.
Now, the obvious question I have is not what others have done, but why people who are no longer serving in government continue to have a security clearance? Why is that not revoked the moment they are no longer in service?
I guess better late than never, but who knows what sort of “research” has been done by these enemies of America over the past year and a half.
